D12'S Mcvay Faces Tax Demand
D12 rapper SWIFTY MCVAY has reportedly joined the list of celebrity tax delinquents - he owes the U.S. government more than $254,000 (£169,335) in unpaid fees.
The hip-hop star, real name Ondre Moore, had a tax lien filed against him in Los Angeles in March (10), according to reports - and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) officials filed another complaint against Moore and his wife weeks later.
The couple is also facing a demand of $7,199 (£4,799) in unpaid taxes in the state of Michigan, dating back to November (09).
But Moore's lawyer, Jeffrey Freeman, insists the Purple Hills hitmaker is working on resolving his financial problems.
He tells the Detroit News, "Mr. Moore takes full responsibility for his debt to the IRS and the state and is working with the government in resolving his outstanding tax liability.
"He has rejoined with his prior manager, and his current business and tax matters are now being properly handled."
Moore isn't the only D12 member hit with IRS demands - bandmates Kuniva and Kon Artis have also been slapped with tax demands.
