R&B singer Faith Evans is the latest singer to make headlines for failing to pay big bucks to Uncle Sam as reports claim she owes nearly $30,000 to the government.
According to reports, Evans owes money dating back two years.
Faith Evans is joining fellow ’90s R&B chart-toppers Mary J. Blige and Lauryn Hill in a super duper, exclusive club … the “I STILL OWE MONEY ON MY TAXES” Club … allegedly. The State of California slapped Faith with a tax lien earlier this year, claiming the R&B songstress (and Biggie Smalls’ widow) has an unpaid tax debt for the year 2011 … to the tune of $29,535.48. It’s a drop in the bucket compared to the MILLIONS Blige and Hill allegedly owe … but it’s def not chump change. Hey, maybe she can hit up Biggie’s daughter for some cash. (TMZ)
Last year, Evans made mega headlines over a publicized tax lien.
Faith Evans, the former wife of rapper Notorious BIG, is becoming quite notorious herself … at least according to the State of California, who just issued a GIANT sized tax lien against the R&B singer. The State of California Tax Franchise Board filed papers recently … claiming Evans failed to fully pay her taxes to the Golden State for the years 2008, 2009 and 2010 … to the tune of $60,357.17. If Evans doesn’t cough up the cash soon, the state could go after any assets she owns — like homes, cars and bank accounts. (Your Black World)
Back in 2010, the renowned singer’s financial woes emerged online.
The IRS filed a $36,360 lien against Evans on March 4 with the New York City Register’s office. The IRS filed a $119,821 lien against Evans on Feb. 16 with the Los Angeles County Recorder of Deeds. The state of New Jersey filed a $204,000 lien against Evans on Oct. 30, 2008, with the New Jersey State Superior Court. (Detroit News)
In 2011, Evans and ex-husband Todd Russaw separated after more than ten years of marriage.
“The dissolution of a marriage is a difficult time in anyone’s life. However, after a great deal of thought and careful consideration, we have come to the decision to end our marriage together. We will both remain committed to parenting our children and will also continue to support each other’s professional endeavors. We consider this a private matter and we will not make any further statement regarding the matter. We would appreciate the press respecting the privacy of our family, particularly our children, as we attempt to handle our situation with respect and dignity.” (VIBE)
