Rapper Xzibit has a big financial hurdle to overcome with Uncle Sam.
The Detroit Newsis reporting that the former “Pimp My Ride” star owes nearly $1 million dollars in delinquent federal taxes.
According to the report X has filed for bankruptcy twice since 2009. Citing financial liabilities exceeding $1.4 million with assets of only $739,433. Both filings were dismissed for various reasons.
Much of the rapper’s financial trouble can be traced back to MTV’s cancellation of “Pimp My Ride” in 2007. X’s income went from $497,175 in 2007 to $67,510 the following year.
He reportedly agreed to start paying the IRS $250 dollars a month in 2009. That amount won’t even put a small dent into what’s owed.
Xzibit currently starring in the ABC show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”
