Kelis is the latest celebrity to be hit by the IRS for failing to pay her taxes.
Kelis, who is known for her 2004 hit “Milkshake” and her marriage to hip hop legend, Nas has failed to pay her taxes for 2004 and 2010. Kelis owes a whopping $300,426.17 in unpaid taxes. In 2004, Kelis went on tour with Britney Spears, while in 2010 the singer embarked on her very first headlining U.S. tour – she's now in trouble for not paying taxes on those profitable years.
When Kelis’ five year marriage to Nas ended in 2010, a court ordered Nas to pay $45,000 a month for child support that later reduced down to $25,000 in 2011. Although she and Nas are no longer an item, they clearly follow the same rules when it come to accounts payable. The Queens rapper was exposed for owing the government $6 million in back taxes.
