T.I. facing new tax lien
Rapper T.I. has reportedly been slapped with yet another lien from America's Internal Revenue Service (IRS) officials for $1.6 million (£1.1 million) in unpaid taxes.
The Whatever You Like star, real name Clifford Harris, Jr., received the latest payment demand from federal authorities in Georgia in a notice dated 17 February (16), according to DailyMail.com.uk. The invoice allegedly relates to outstanding taxes from 2014.
T.I. is no stranger to tax issues after previously receiving two separate liens in August (15) for just under $1.4 million (£999,000) for back taxes from 2012 and $3.17 million (£2.26 million) for 2013. He has reportedly refused to pay up and could now face the seizure of his assets.
Meanwhile, he was also sent a $500 (£360) lien against his Georgia mansion after reportedly failing to pay $537 (£383) in homeowners fees and other costs to the Lost Valley Homeowners Association in December (15).
The 35-year-old has yet to comment on the latest reports of his financial woes, which emerge a day after T.I. announced he had become the latest artist owner involved in Jay Z's Tidal music streaming service. He also revealed his next album, The Dime Trap, would be distributed by Jay Z's Roc Nation record label.
The rapper is also preparing to become a dad again - his wife, singer/songwriter Tameka 'Tiny' Cottle, is pregnant with the couple's latest child.
The stars wed in 2010 and already have two sons together, King and Major, while Cottle gave birth to a stillborn daughter, named Leyah, in 2007.
T.I. also has three children from previous relationships, while Cottle, 40, is mum to another girl from a past romance.
