When The Checks Stop Coming In: Prince Owes Uncle Sam Beaucoup Stacks

- By Bossip Staff

Times are tough all over, even Prince is scraping by. Looks like The Artist-Formerly-Known-As-The-Artist-Who-Could-Pay-His-Bills needs to cough up a few hundred stacks in back taxes. Continue

    You’d better sell that Paisley Park mansion and downgrade to some stripes or dots or something…

    YOu know he shouldn’t owe sh it. Whut up with that prince. Tell nikki to help you.

  • aleximaq

    Half a mil is a lot of money to just come up with…maybe he can do a concert..but then won’t he have to pay taxes on that too?

  • Candid Canuck

    ” money dont matter tonight, sure didnt matter yesterday, just when you think u got more than enuff….”

    how ironic..

  • memchee

    I can’t see him being broke.

    Maybe, somehow neglecting his bills.

    You can’t tell me he doesn’t have the money to pay this. He could pay this off of his royalties alone with all the hits he’s had going all the way back to the 70’s – not to mention all the royalties for songs he has written for countless other artists – and that’s not even counting the artists that HE discovered and produced and wrote songs for!!!!

    He owes taxes – big whop! He’ll pay them and still be able to live his life without ever doing another concert if he doesn’t want to! Show me an artist today – singer, rapper or otherwise – who can say any of those things like Prince? So many artists make bad business decisions, sign bogus contracts that leave them penniless or simply waste their money away.

  • Anna

    He owes over $200,000 for his 2009 taxes and $45,000 in deliquent property taxes, big deal, this man will never be broke. As for the $200,000, April 15th is not here yet.

  • fishnets

    Prince may owe it but only a fool would think it’s because he’s broke.

  • chaka1

    This ish happens when you own multiple corporations and you start skimming money off the top hoping the IRS doesn’t catch you. Get it together Prince.

    Still loves you…

  • NC QUE

    This is crazy! The IRS is coming for everyone nowadays.

    He’s gonna have to sell his jumpsuit with the azz cut out to pay them bills.

  • RoyBoy

    I seriously doubt that Prince is broke. He wrote so many hits for himself and other artist for over 30 years. He could easily do a North American Tour in pay that $500,000 in one hour of a concert.

    He can never be broke. Prince could live off his royalties and still make more money then a lot of today’s artists.

    It’s not even April 15th yet. He has time to pay his taxes.

  • NiChar

    Pay your taxes FIRST!!! Then the government can’t come and take away your precious belongings. Pay your taxes FIRST!!!

  • Be Original

    You guys are fools if you think he is anywhere close to being broke.

  • Wenzel Dashington

    a sign-o-the times

  • black is beautiful don't F*ck it up

    Prince always pays his bills late!! they will get their money but on his schedule not theirs!

  • frankiestage

    Prince made $90 million in one year a few years back just doing an arena tour. $500,000 ain’t that big of a deal to Prince.
