Taxman Goes After MC Hammer
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 Can't Touch This hit-maker launched a reality show, called Hammertime, in June to get his career back on track - but now he's dealing with a second round of money difficulties.
U.S. government officials have filed three separate liens against him this year that add up to $671,182. The three demands include a lien from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) filed in May against Burrell and his wife Stephanie for $32,926 and a June request from the state of California seeking $12,464 from the star. The final lien, filed in July, shows that he and his partner also owe a staggering $625,792 to the IRS.
Burrell is the latest celebrity to be named and shamed as indebted to the already financially struggling state - Snoop Dogg and Janice Dickinson are also reportedly being chased for unpaid bills.
