Kanye West Reportedly Dodging Nearly $1 Million In Unpaid Taxes For His Yeezy Brand & Previous Homes w/ Ex-Wife Kim Kardashian
It looks like Kanye West owes the IRS some major coins!
According to reports, rapper/fashion designer Kanye West has fallen into a hole of unresolved tax issues.
Allegedly, Kanye West’s controversial apparel brand, Yeezy, is facing four active tax liens at the moment. The two California residences he shared with his former wife, Kim Kardashian, aren’t sitting too pretty with the IRS either.
Reportedly, West was slapped with the first claim for Yeezy in July 2021. Filings in February 2022 and September 2022 followed. The most recent one is said to have been in March 2023. The whopping amount allegedly owed comes up to $934,033.56.
Additionally, the property taxes that the 46-year-old failed to pay were for a four-bedroom mansion ($2 million) and a three-bedroom apartment ($1.6 million), which are both located in Calabasas.
He and Kardashian purchased the pads between 2017-2018. However, both were given to West in their divorce proceedings.
The combined total of lapsed taxes that West is being held accountable for is $101,093, reports claim.
No word on if or when the ‘Donda’ lyricist will get it paid off.
Along with losing numerous big-brand deals due to his antisemitic rants, West is now swimming in legal matters, including a lawsuit from former remodeler Tony Saxon.
Saxon accused the wealthy musician of labor violations due to forcing him to work under hazardous conditions when helping West reconstruct his Malibu home.
He said in an interview,
“You can only pay people so much to do crazy work.”
Saxon alleged that he was forced to work 16-hour days on the project and subjected to an unfair job environment.
Hopefully, West’s new bride, Bianca Censori, is in it for the long haul. He’s going to need someone by his side for this messy ride.
