Several weeks after news broke that he was facing a possible home foreclosure in Chicago comes reports that R&B crooner R. Kelly owes an exorbitant amount of money to the government.

The Detroit News reports that the ‘Love Letter’ creator owes $837,000 in delinquent federal taxes. The IRS filed the tax lien against the 44-year-old Chicago native on Jan. 6, 2010, with the Cook County Recorder of Deeds.

While the whopping amount is unsettling, it pales in comparison to the $1,036,858 tax lien against Kelly that the IRS lifted last month.

The lauded singer-songwriter, who holds 10 albums to his name and is a multi-Grammy winner, seems to have hit a rough patch as of late with his recent money troubles and health issues. Kelly was recently rushed to the hospital for emergency throat surgery, in which an abscess on his tonsil was drained.

Currently released, R. Kelly is on an indefinite hiatus from touring.
