Flavor Flav has been accused by the IRS of failing to pay almost $1 million in back taxes. According to TMZ.com, the rapper and reality TV star owes for 2004, 2005, and 2006. During those years in question, the rapper was the star of reality shows like "The Surreal Life," "Strange Love," and "Flavor of Love." The IRS says the rapper owes $52,243.47 for 2004, $303,035.93 for 2005, and $550,971.16 for 2006. It seems like the hip-hop star's rise to reality fame is going to cost him big time.
