T.I. And Tiny Got Uncle Sam In Their Life, Owing $4.5 Million In Back Taxes
Rapper/actor T.I. and his R&B diva wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris, have run into a small bump in the road. The BoomBox reports they've caught the attention of Uncle Sam. Apparently to two superstars owe the IRS a few million in back taxes.
Reps for the dynamic duo had no comment and rightfully so, who wants to talk about owing money. Right? However, that's one of the drawbacks of being a star. As the many stars before them, someone didn't get Tip and Tiny's paperwork right and now they gotta clear up the mess.
Posted last Friday, Page Six of the New York Post reported together the couple owes Uncle Sam over $4.5 million in back taxes. Word has it, the IRS filed a tax lien against Tiny earlier this month for $1.4 million for 2012, then handed down a separate tax lien against Tip to the tune of $3.2 million for unpaid taxes in 2013. Of course, this is a drop in the bucket when you have as much money as them. So, it shouldn't take but a minute for them to clear this up and get back to their hustle.
In other news, according to Buzzfeed.com the creator behind the his sitcom Black-ish, Kenya Barris revealed he's just inked a deal with ABC Studio's to create another sitcom. This one, loosely based on the real-life marriage of John Legend and Chrissy Teigen.
There's no denying the love the Grammy award wining singer and super model have is magic. So this could be interesting. Barris explained his concept saying, “It’s inspired by them — they’re both super creative and super effusive and I’m just fans of them and everything they stand for.” he continued “I’m really excited about it.” By the way, Legend and Teigen are working as producing partners on the project and word is the shows title is, Ordinary People.
I love it! Barris said the sitcom is still in the early planning stages, but if the pilot gets the green light, filming will begin next February. On that, I'll keep you posted!
