The Struggle Is Over! Brian McKnight Settles With Accounting Firm Who Allegedly Ruined His Credit

July 15, 2014  |  

Last month, we reported the state of California placed Brian McKnight on the Top 500 Delinquent Tax Payer list. Prior to this, McKnight sued his accounting firm, Vernon Brown and Company because he believed their actions — or inaction — ruined his credit. Today, The Jasmine Brand in an  exclusive update, reports Brian McKnight’s legal woes are over.

McKnight claimed he worked with Vernon Brown and Company for several years but their relationship ended in 2010 when he realized his finances were in bad shape. He says his taxes hadn’t been paid in a decade, which lead to penalties, a lien on his home, a suspended driver’s license and frozen royalties. The accounting company reported the “Anytime” singer was solely responsible for his finances. They also stated that the company tried to help McKnight out of his financial rut, but he was in a predicament before he hired them.

With this behind him, maybe we’ll get some new music. Let’s just hope there’s no more of this.
