Lil' Kim Reportedly Owes Over $1 Million In Taxes, Rapper's Camp Reacts

Lil' Kim finds herself in Uncle Sam's doghouse, while her publicist responds.

Lil' Kim is the latest in a growing list of emcees and producers to have tax troubles, and according to TMZ, she has hit a bit of a milestone in that regard.

The celebrity news site reports that Kim's tax troubles have brought her total bill to the IRS to $1,026,862.42.

The Queen Bee reportedly owes $86,347.85 from 2009, and money in every year from 2002-2009.

In response, Kim's publicist issued the following statement:

"It is a known fact that for some time TMZ has been running stories on celebrities or well known persons of interest and providing the general public and media with publicly accessible information on random celebrities and their private matters with the internal revenue service, this [sic] does not come as a surprise, as it is Tax Season and is a sell-able media opportunity,it is for no other reason that Kimberly Jones (a/k/a: LIL' KIM) is now the target of such random media scrutiny.As it pertains to the story that was ran on TMZ(February 4,2012)regarding Lil' Kim, we would like to inform fans,media, and the general public, that LIL' KIM has hired professional attorneys to handle this matter(embellished by all standards via the media), and that she,along with her team of legal experts are working cooperatively and diligently with the I.R.S and federal authorities to amicably resolve the situation.

Publicist for 'Lil Kim'"

Other artists to recently land in tax trouble include Bow Wow, Lil Wayne, Nas, and many others.

    It's all coming back around to these rappers. You earn't so much money but were'nt smart enough to invest, you had to floss like a mad man living way above your means thinking your gonna be rich forever. Multi millionaires, and now your all gonna die broke

  • Hypestyle

    So many rappers make careers out of flossing, showing off big riches, gaudy material items that supposedly are a drop in the bucket for them, metaphorically throwing their money in their fans faces. Everyday folks don't ride in bentleys, maybachs, have gold bannisters, etc. not a huge fan of the "the taxman", but some rappers are just plain reckless, expecting their accountants or whoever, is going to keep track of their financial affairs closely and they barely pay attention to it, sometimes not filing every year like they should.. it's a protective measure, especially if you're married and/or have children.. you don't want to get audited and face fines upon fines, and possibly jail like Wesley Snipes... at this point it does nothing to make "protest" statements through your publicist, going up against the federal government..

    This shit has YMCMB written all over it. They are some sneaky evil bitches over there. Kim hold your head. Sabatoge is a motherfucker......

  • John Book

    The publicist statement claims that attorneys were hired. I think she needs to hire a new publicist, that has got to be the longest run-on sentence I've ever seen in a hip-hop context. Damn.

  • Knuckles

    The publicist just wrote all that bullshit just to say "Yeah...she didn't pay taxes in the past and now has been called out to pay them." Why is bitchdom accepted? Why is she so horrible looking? Why is the Nicki Minaj comment so damn funny?

  • Nicki Minaj

    Lick my pussy and I pay your taxes. XoXo

  • Burmy

    I don't feel any sympathy for all y'all...you made your bed by supporting for this tax-crazy President in his '08 campaign, now you gotta lie in it for his term-and hopefully wisen up for the next election. RON PAUL 2012-END THE FED

    • IROC

    • SCHWARZ

      C'MON SON, PE, NWA, ICE T AND LUKE ALL HAD POLITICAL ISSUES. IF U CAN'T KEEP UP FALL BACK AND LEARN SOMETHING IF U CAN'T CONTRIBUTE, OG'S VISIT THIS SITE TOO. WHEN U HEAR ENTERTAINER'S ON SOME TAX ISH, U LOOK AT THE ACCOUNTANTS, BECAUSE RAPPERS AIN'T FILING TAXES NOR ARE FILING 1040EZ LIKE THE FANS. GETCHA MIND RIGHT.

    • GBtha G

    • IToldYouSo

      WE ALL ARE DOOMED WHEN IT COMES TO POLITICS!! THEY GOT US RIGHT WHERE THEY WANT US BECAUSE ARE DUMB ASSES VOTED IN FAVOR OF THE DUMBEST SHIT. IT OPENED UP THE FLOOD GATES FOR THEM TO SLOWLY TAKE OUR RIGHTS AWAY!!!

    • Burmy

      Yes, Romney is going to get the GOP nomination...however, I want Obamacare REPEALED, and I'm not convinced Romney will do that (he had Romneycare in Massachusetts before Obamacare was nationwide). Even though Ron Paul will most likely lose in the GOP nominations, he'll likely run either as an independent or Libertarian candidate... Republicans ain't nothin' but greedy rich folk, and Democrats ain't nothin' but perverted sheep! QUIT SCREWING AMERICA-VOTE THIRD PARTY!

    • AvengerXL

      Dude what the Fuck are you talking about. The president has nothing to do with this she owes taxes from 2002-2009 WTF! Romney is going to be the nominee so keep dreaming about Paul. If you are going to just blame Obama for everything save that dumb shit for faux news. p.s. I didn't vote for him the first time in case you bags were wondering rolled with ralphie to make a statement.

    • Usher

      Salute homie. We gotta get Obama out. #Swag
