While Lil' Kim is two-stepping up a storm on 'Dancing with the Stars,' she still has some legal problems to tend to. The Brooklyn, N.Y. rapper owes $979,090 in both state and federal taxes. The delinquent payments, which go back to 2004, cross both New York and New Jersey state lines but also include negligent payments to the state of California. As a result, the IRS has filed tax warrants and liens against the Grammy winner.

"Lil' Kim is paying her tax debt and will continue to do so," her spokeswoman Lisa Perkins said in statement. Although Kim doesn't dispute the charges, as of late the 33-year-old performer has run into problems paying her bills. Last year her Bentley was repossessed for four missed payments.

Once a staple in the female rapper category, Kim has not dropped an album in four years. Her last project ,'The Naked Truth,' released in 2005 was received well by critics. Promotion of the album was minimal as Kim was serving an 11-month sentence for lying to a grand jury about a friend's involvement in a shooting outside of New York City radio station, Hot 97.

Since her release, Kim got back into the swing of things signing on to be a judge on two reality shows. She garnered headlines earlier this year over her outrage surrounding the film 'Notorious.' The biopic, which chronicled the life of her former love interest Notorious B.I.G., left Kim unhappy with the cinematic piece. According to reports, Kim felt that her depiction in the film was a sensationalized attempt by Big's wife and mother to minimize her involvement in the rapper's life. "The film studio and producers involved were more concerned about painting me as a 'character' to create a more interesting story line instead of a person with talent, self-respect and who was able to achieve her own career success through hard work," she said in an interview.
