R. Kelly Owes Almost $5 Million in Back Taxes

A rep for the singer said, "R. Kelly is in the process of working everything out with the government and is confident that all his obligations will be satisfied."

The breakdown of the alleged non-payments includes: $1,472,366.77 (2005), $710,520.51 (2006), $376,180.11 (2007), $1,122,694.90 (2008), $173,815.18 (2009) and $992,495.24 (2010). The total bill comes to $4,848,072.71.

For some reason, I'm not all that surprised. Hopefully Kells takes care of that and quick. He's coming out with his new album, Write Me Back, later in the month. So his management needs to get him some appearances and performances. Maybe even a tour. Because Uncle Sam does NOT play about his money!
