Pay Yo Bills: Comedian Sinbad Owes $8.15 Milli in Back Taxes!!!

- By Bossip Staff

Remember your boy Sinbad from back in the day?? Well seems like he hasn’t paid Uncle Sam in a minute:

Comedian/actor Sinbad’s financial problems just got a whole lot worse.

The Benton Harbor native, who emceed Motown Records’ 50th anniversary gala last month, owes more than $8.15 million in delinquent federal taxes, and the U.S. Attorney General’s office wants his house sold to help satisfy the debt, according to federal court records.

On Dec. 10, an assistant U.S. attorney asked a federal judge to foreclose on several tax liens and determine the 53-year-old comedian (full name Sinbad Adkins) is the true owner of a $1.5 million home in Hidden Hills, Calif. In response, Sinbad filed chapter 7 bankruptcy the next day.

Geeze Louise. Damn, these cats must be allergic to paying taxes or something. How in the heezy do you dig yourself that deep into the hole??? Poor thang.

    What does anybody expect, he hasn’t really worked since the early 90’s.

    The best thing everyone should do, entertainers or not, is to become aware of how money works, what things we are obligated to pay (as Americans), and how to invest wisely. I would love an opportunity to get a lump sum of money, I don’t need 100 million like MC Hammer blew, just a million or two, and I’d be set for life cause I would know how to invest and how not to. That is the hard thing about these washed up entertainers: once you become so famous, its hard to deal with the fact that you might have to really work someday, and then how do you work a regular job? That’d be a embarrasing story in itself. For that reason, I definately would not want to be famous, rich would be fine, but not famous.
