Obie TriceRapper Obie Trice is the latest star in trouble with tax officers after allegedly failing to pay more than $298,000.

Authorities at the Internal Revenue Service filed a $298,051 lien against the hip-hop star on June 21st in the Wayne County Register of Deeds in his native Detroit, Michigan. His father, who is also named Obie Trice, insists he knew nothing of his son's financial woes - but knows for certain the debts aren't his.

Trice, Sr. tells the Detroit News, "I know that's not me. I've never made that kind of money to get that kind of tax debt."


The Got Some Teeth hitmaker signed to Eminem's Shady Records in 2000 but split from the label in 2008.
