R&B poptart Omarion becomes the latest celebrity to face the wrath of the Internal Revenue Service, reportedly owing the government in excess of $100,000.
The 25-year-old singer (real name: Omarion Grandberry) owes $110,585 in unpaid taxes dating back to 2003, reports the Detroit News. Omarion reportedly failed to pay income taxes in 2003, 2005 and 2006—at the height of his fame with boy band B2K—and also filed for bankruptcy in January. The bankruptcy was dismissed ten days later.
In May, the IRS filed a $35,210 lien in Orange County against Omarion, a $25,660 lien in October 2009, and a $49,715 filed in the Los Angeles County Recorder of Deeds in August of 2009. The Orange County liens are attached to his $1.5 million home in Ladera Ranch, California, which was featured in this episode of MTV Cribs.
Omarion has released three solo albums following the breakup of B2K. He is currently the newest judge on America's Best Dance Crew. In recent weeks singer Toni Braxton and sex symbol slash actor Boris Kodjoe have also made the news after owing six figure tax bills to the IRS.
