RAPPER MC Hammer is facing a new set of financial woes â€“â€“ the star allegedly owes more than US$600 000 in unpaid taxes.
The star, real name Stanley Burrell, famously declared himself bankrupt in 1996 after squandering his multi-million-dollar fortune on his lavish lifestyle.
The U Canâ€™t Touch This hitmaker launched a US reality show, called Hammertime, in JuneÂ to get his career back on track â€“â€“ but now heâ€™s dealing with a second round of money difficulties.
US government officials have filed three separate liens against him this yearÂ that add up to US$671 182.
The three demands include a lien from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) filed in May against Burrell and his wife Stephanie for US$32 926Â and a June request from the state of California seeking US$12 464 from the star.
The final lien, filed in July, shows that he and his partner also owe a staggering US$625 792 to the IRS.
Burrell is the latest celebrity to be named and shamed as indebted to the already financially struggling state â€“â€“ Snoop Dogg and Janice Dickinson are also reportedly being chased for unpaid bills. â€“â€“ Contactmusic.
