Nas owes $6.4million in unpaid taxes, say IRS

Rapper has also reportedly not paid rent on his flat for almost a year

Nas reportedly owes over $6.4million (£4million) in unpaid taxes.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) filed a legal challenge on January 10 over an unpaid tax bill of $514,000 (£322,000), which added to claims for $3million (£1.9million) filed in February 2010, and $2.5million (£1.6million) in October 2009, bringing Nas‘ alleged IRS debt to $6.4million.

Rolling Stone magazine reports that the rapper has also not paid the rent on his flat for almost a year.

Nas is said to be financially crippled by the child support payments of $5,000 (£3,200) and spousal support of $20,000 (£12,800) he must pay to ex-wife Kelis every month.

The rapper has not commented on the reports, but is expected to have to report to court over the challenges at some point in 2011.
