Rapper Flo Rida has been slapped with a tax bill for over $1 million (£625,000).

The Wild Ones hitmaker, real name Tramar Dillard, is accused of falling behind on payments to officials at America's Internal Revenue Service (Irs) for money earned in 2009 and a tax lien was filed against him in a Miami-Dade County court in Florida on 7 September (12).

The hip-hop star's lawyer, Reginald Mathis, insists the matter is being looked in to and and will be resolved as soon as possible.

He tells GossipExtra.com, "The accountants are checking into it. We know there were some issues with the year 2009, international expenses and the likes. Whatever Flo owes, he will pay. But I'm confident it's not $1 million!"

The allegations of unpaid taxes are not the only legal issues facing Flo Rida - he is also being sued over an outstanding bill for a home security system and was recently ordered to pay $432,704 (£270,440) to the organisers of an Australian music festival after he reportedly failed to show up as scheduled.
