Ja rule is reportedly facing more money problems.
Earlier this week, Radar Online reported that the IRS was suing Ja and his wife, Aisha Atkins, over unpaid federal taxes totaling more than $3 million. The IRS has reportedly made many attempts to get the money, which is owed from 2005-2010 and 2012-2017, but the couple has allegedly refused to cough up the dough, prompting the government to take legal action.
The IRS is seeking a judgment against the rapper and his wife for $3.1 million. Back in 2011, the Murder Inc. rapper was sentenced to 28 months in prison for failing to file income tax returns for which he owed $1.1 million.
Ja Rule has yet to file a response to the IRS’ lawsuit but has hired an attorney for the legal battle.
