Lil Wayne and Floyd Mayweather have been hit with some huge tax bills and the IRS is looking for them to pay up. Read on to find out more about there financial woes plus find out why ESPN has decided to pull NBA basketball analyst Jalen Rose off the air...
According to RadarOnline, Lil Wayne's Miami mansion has been hit with its second lien. Back in December, the New Orleans rapper paid off a $1.1 million tax lien filed against the Miami property.
On Monday, Lil Wayne was hit with a new tax bill for $5.6 million on his Miami mansion. The home is currently up for sale for $13 million and the IRS will probably snatch their share before Weezy gets to profit off the sale.
RadarOnline also reports that 'Pretty Boy' Floyd is facing some IRS issues. The extravagant boxer owes $3.4 million for unpaid 2009 federal income taxes. This is also his second time having issues paying taxes. In 2008, he owed the IRS a $6.1 million tax bill but was able to work out a payment plan.
I guess these dudes didn't see what happened to Wesley Snipes. They might want to spend a little less time partying and tipping strippers and try to get their finances in check. Just sayin'....
In sport news,
The outspoken Jalen Rose has been suspended from ESPN. USA Today reports that sports analyst Jalen Rose has been pulled off the air after he waited almost three weeks to tell his employers about his arrest in Michigan on suspicion of drunk driving.
In an email sent to Game On!, ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz wrote:
"Jalen has accepted full responsibility for his actions. Both parties are taking this very seriously, and as a result, we've agreed that he will not be on our air while he addresses this situation,"
Jalen has always been known for his controversial behavior and remarks. Hopefully, he lands on feet and quickly gets his groove back at ESPN because he brings a unique perspective to the show.
