K. Michelle has been hit with a tax lien for owing $52,415.09 to the IRS, according to TMZ.
The former Love & Hip Hop star reportedly failed to pay her taxes in the years 2008 and 2009, which is right around the time the Memphis singer signed her first record deal with Jive records. Shorty after, she released her buzz single, “Fakin It,” featuring Missy Elliott.
K. Michelle responded to the tax lien news by posting an image on Instagram that reads: “Damn Uncle Sam Why you wanna stick me for my paper??? Nice try bloggers its already been settled. Strippers need tax breaks too.” She wrote in the accompanying caption, “Another day another headline. No jail time for me yet. Your stuck with me.”
