Keshia Knight-Pulliam Owes $100,000 In Unpaid Taxes
Keshia Knight-Pulliam has a serious tax debt. The 38-year-old actress, who was recently voted out of the Celebrity Big Brother house, owes the Georgia Department of Revenue $102,286.37 in unpaid taxes – according to the AJC. According to the site,
In a filing in the Fayette Ga. Superior Court from December 30, 2017, the former “Cosby Show” kid owes $51,469 in unpaid state taxes from 2011 and 2013. But she has since accrued $27,806.13 in interest, $12,667.44 in penalties, $10,293.80 in collection fees and $50 in extra costs. So her total now exceeds $100,000. The filings do not indicate she has paid what she has owed since the December 30 filing.
Earlier this week, Keshia released a statement about her departure from Celebrity Big Brother, explaining that her daughter Ella was a priority.
There is no amount of money ever worth sacrificing her needs. When you become a mother your entire world shifts. Everything I do is for this little girl. I am grateful for the Big Brother opportunity. However, nothing tops this feeling right here. Tonight I won! My desire is always to be an example of #BlackGirlMagic because I have my little girl and millions of little girls around the word watching, learning & modeling my actions. This is BIGGER than me.
Prior to her being kicked out of the house, she was nominated for eviction alongside Omarosa Manigault. She asked the houseguests to vote for her to leave because of how badly she missed her daughter and how she needed to return home to nurse her.
I was ready to stay and fight but my breast milk supply has kind of been getting a little less. They asked me honestly and I was like, ‘You know, to tell you the truth, since you guys put me up on the block anyway, it’s time for me to go home. It’s time for me to make sure that Ella’s OK, ’cause she is my priority.
