Pay Your Taxes Ruben!

I guess Ruben Studdard hasn't been following the Wesley Snipes saga of getting caught up by Uncle Sam and the IRS folks.  Ruben reportedly owes $200,000 in income taxes to both the state of Alabama and the feds.

Splash News reports: According to court filings, the federal government and the state of Alabama have placed liens on all of Studdard's property for unpaid income taxes in 2003 and 2005. Byron Perkins, a Birmingham lawyer for Studdard, told the Birmingham News that his client is in good shape financially and can afford to pay the bill. Developer John Elkington said he's checking to find out if the liens on Studdard's property will affect the singer's promised six-figure investment in a planned downtown Birmingham club bearing Studdard's name.

The 29-year-old "Velvet Teddy Bear" was married in Birmingham in June to Surata McCants. He is set to release a new album later this year and is launching a national tour in the fall. And if he can set all this ish in motion he can for damn sure not get caught up for $200k. Get it together peoples.

WANT YOUR OWN AVATAR? GET IT HERE.

ruben has a reasonable amount

ruben has a reasonable amount of talent but a luther he is NOT! he has no business sense. no sincere desire to be an entertainer or he would get his weight down to look as good as possible. he doesn't have the drive or aggressive spirit to compete in the business. i don't know how he even has gotten this far actually.

Instead of signing people

Instead of signing people left and right and giving them record deals, they need a crash course in basic, how to survive the record business fundamentals. Such as paying taxes, staying away from groupies, stay away from fights etc.... SMH!
