I feel like almost every week I read about another celebrity who has somehow avoided paying taxes to an extent so great they are now facing hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt, so take this post as the latest reminder that no one escape Uncle Sam, even the famous.
TMZ is reporting this morning that the state of New York and the Federal Government both are looking for money owed to them by hip hop mega-producer Swizz Beatz. According to the gossip site, Beatz recently had a lien filed against him by the Empire State for unpaid taxes dating back to 2010 in the amount of $98,246.18. Even worse, the site goes on to add that the husband of Alicia Keys also owes the Fed roughly $2.6 million.
Beatz has yet to comment on the situation, and I really doubt he ever will. So instead of waiting around for word from him, click through and check out his latest video for “Everyday Birthday” featuring Ludacris and a guy who beats women.
