Your favorite crooning lard ass, Rube, owes the I.R.S. some loot…still:
Uncle Sam is hunting the Velvet Teddy Bear. The IRS has filed a lien against singer Ruben Studdard, the winner of the second season of American Idol, for unpaid income taxes. In all, Studdard owes…… $254,119 in state and federal taxes, according to tax records. On February 4th, The IRS filed a $60,469 lien against Studdard for unpaid taxes, according to the Shelby County Alabama Recorder’s office. According to the lien, he owes the money from 2007. This is the fourth time either the IRS or the state of Alabama have filed liens against the singer, who was dropped by his record label late last year following disappointing sales since his smash 2003 debut “Soulful”.
Damn Rube, that’s a lot of money for someone who we have not heard from in 2 yrs. Four liens are really hard to shake. Good luck big man.
