R. Kelly Owes $4.8 Million in Unpaid Taxes

R. Kelly

R. Kelly, the Grammy Award-winning R&B star, owes an astounding $4.85 million in unpaid taxes. Apparently, he owes money for every year between 2005 and 2010. In 2005, he failed to pay nearly $1.5 million, and this currently adds more bad news to the financially-strapped singer. Last summer, he was hit with a $2.9 million foreclosure suit after failing to make mortgage payments on his Chicago-area mansion for more than one year. The 11,000-square foot Olympia Fields home quickly went on the market in December with a price tag of $1.595 million. In July, the R&B star was rushed to the hospital with throat pain and had to undergo emergency surgery. 

Kelly's next album, which will be his 11th studio release, comes out on June 26.
