Kelis must fork over $330,000 in back taxes


First Lauryn Hill turned herself in for failure to file income taxes, now Kelis is facing a tax lien of more than a quarter million dollars. Guys, it's April 15 every year, not just once in awhile

The hip-hop artist must pay $330,426.71, according to a tax lien filed in New York, TMZ says. Apparently Kelis decided she wasn't going to pay taxes in 2004 or 2010. Her ex-husband Nas was also hitby the IRS in February for not paying more than $339,000 in federal taxes in 2010, as well.

What is it with that year? Well, Kelis went on tour with Robyn that year; 2004 was the Milkshake singer toured with Britney Spears. After that, Kelis has been most famous for ... uh, singing that song where she hates everyone.
