Kelis may have been so consumed with getting into Nas’ pockets, that she forgot to keep her own finances in order. The singer, and ex-wife to God’s Son, owes the IRS over $300,000 in back taxes. According to reports, tax liens have been filed against her totaling, $330,426.
The first claim was filed in March, for $177,989, while the second was in May for $152,437. Both amounts stem from her earnings in 2004—the same year that her “Milkshake” track was named Best Single of the year, by Britian’s The Observer.
Although she and Nas are no longer an item, they clearly follow the same rules when it come to accounts payable. The Queens rapper was exposed for owing the government $6.5 million in back taxes.
Both parties were at odds over child and spousal support, with a judge ordering Nas to pay her $51,000 a month back in 2009.
