R Kelly In $4.8 Million Tax Trouble
Entertainment

The federal government is on to R. Kelly for failing to pay a whopping $4.8 million in back taxes.

According to documents filed by the IRS, Kelly owes money on his taxes going way back to 2005. It breaks down like this,

2005 – $1,472,366.77
2006 – $710,520.51
2007 – $376,180.11
2008 – $1,122,694.90
2009 – $173,815.18
2010 – $992,495.24

for a total of $4,848,072.71.

Being trapped in the closet probably won’t cut it as an excuse.

A rep for Kelly tells sources, “R. Kelly is in the process of working everything out with the government and is confident that all his obligations will be satisfied.”

Singularity At The Cinema: ‘Transcendence,’ ‘Her’ And Fighting Against The Future

“Transcendence” isn’t a very good movie. It has the setup to be a thought-provoking, sci-fi, action flick, without any real action or thought of which to speak. It’s essentially the last 20 minutes of “Her,” spread glacially over a two-hour-and-twenty-minute run time. The biggest problem with “Transcendence,” however, is that it foregrounds and obsesses over its technology at the […]
