I.O.U’s aren’t going to work here. Swizz Beatz really should learn from his mistakes, especially now that he’s going to be a daddy with Alicia Keys. He’s being visited by the tax man who would really like him to pay up since he’s about $ 2.2 MILLION in debt.
This isn’t the first time the IRS has come a-knockin on Swizz Beatz‘ door. He was charged with a lien for $652,727 on June 3 for taxes he hadn’t bothered to pay since 2008! What’s even worse is that there’s a whole host of liens filed against the music producer and his ex-wife Mashonda. Forget being in trouble in one state, they owe money in THREE – New York, California and Georgia.
A lawyer for Beatz is obviously trying to do damage control commenting, “We have been discussing the issue with the government for years and are currently negotiating an amicable resolution of the dispute.” So wait, explain something to us. Do people think that the IRS are just going to forget if you don’t pay up? They don’t and they will come for you. Just ask Nicholas Cage, Method Man or any of these other celebrities (photos) who owe tax money. Trouble awaits!
