Jesus Be An Accountant! Brian McKnight Lands On California’s Top 500 Delinquent Taxpayers

June 6, 2014  |  

Earlier this year, we reported R&B crooner Brian McKnight sued Vernon Brown and Company, an accounting firm for allegedly ruining his credit. Today, the “Back At One” singer opens up about his $1 million dollar debt. While interviewing with Huffington Post Live, McKnight shared the risks he took by having other people manage his finances.

“When you have business managers, when you have folks managing your money, it’s very important that you know where every single penny of yours, not just the dollars, is going. And that those people are doing their diligence to make sure that you’re on time with the things that you need to be on time with. Because we basically all work just to pay taxes, let’s be real about that. Practically in my tax bracket. And when those things lapse, there can be some bad things that happen.”

Despite his remorse for his financial woes, McKnight landed on California’s Top 500 Delinquent Taxpayers list.
