Kelis Hit With $86,000 Tax Bill
Singer Kelis has brought the taxman to her yard. Nas’ ex-wife reportedly owes $86,000 in back taxes to the state of California.
According to BOSSIP, the state’s Franchise Tax Board served the 36-year-old singer with a tax lien of $85,844, which she owes from money earned in 2011. The lien, which was filed earlier this year, will continue to grow with interest until it’s paid in full. If Kelis doesn’t pay, the state could impound her $1 million home in Glendale, Calif.
This isn’t the first time the IRS has come knocking at Kelis' door. The “Milkshake” singer owed $350,000 in back federal taxes in 2013, but she apparently paid the amount.
Kelis should be able to take care of the $86K bill since she just released her new cookbook, My Life on a Plate, and Nas is reportedly paying her $50,000 a month in child support.
She's currently pregnant with her second child and is expected to give birth sometime in November. The "Bossy" singer says that her 6-year-old son, Knight Jones, whose father is Nas, is happy to have a sibling.
“I was like, ‘We’re going to have another baby in the family,’ so now he’s like, ‘I can’t wait. I’m going to teach the baby everything’ He’s all about it," she tells People. "He talks to my stomach all day long.”
