R&B singer R. Kelly owes $5 million in unpaid taxes

  • R&B singer R. Kelly owes almost $5 million in unpaid taxes.

    Documents filed by the Internal Revenue Service show that the singer owes taxes dating back to 2005.

    Last year, Kelly was forced to sell his Chicago mansion due to unpaid mortgage payments.

    According to tax records, the 45-year-old paid $2.6 million in back taxes in 2008.

    Despite paying a further $1 million in back taxes last year, the singer still owes more than $4.8 million.

    The three-time Grammy award winner has sold over 50 million albums worldwide. He releases his 11th album later this month.
