Another day, another tax lien, right?
Today, Faith Evans is the one letting her fiscal irresponsibility show, as according to TMZ she has a pretty hefty debt she’s refused to pay since 2011. The site claims the singer and widow of the Notorious B.I.G, has been hit with a tax lien by the state of California to the tune of $29,535.48.
The unpaid tax debt apparently stems back to 2011, which, in retrospect to what Faith has going on now, makes sense. In 2011, Faith Evans was virtually invisible on the national scale. There was no music, she may have done a tribute on an award show or two somewhere, but we wouldn’t be thoroughly surprised to find her money was funny at that time. In May of 2011, Faith and her husband, record company executive Todd Russaw, whom she began dating after she separated from Biggie in 1997, also announced they were filing for divorce a year after she had been arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor drunken driving. So yeah, there was a lot going on then. Now today, knowing that she’s the co-executive producer of the hit reality show “R&B Divas,” I’m saying, just pay the money, Faith!
Since the “Divas” franchise just kicked off last year, and there was no telling how much of a hit it would be, I imagine Faith is just now getting her ducks — and by ducks I mean money — in a row and plans to take care of this debt pronto. We’d hate to see her end up in jail like some of her industry cohorts.
