Scarface is a Houston-based rapper who owed in excess of $123,000 in child support for four children. Though the rapper swears he paid the child support there is no record of it being paid. As a result of Scarface failing to prove he paid the child support he served 10 months in prison.
Wyclef Jean is another rapper that was recently reported to be broke. He owes the IRS $2.9 million. This was recently revealed by his accountant because Wyclef Jean has failed to pay lawyer fees he owes, which equals $100,000 he owes to a law firm as well as $133,000 to settle his outstanding bill. Wyclef Jean was ordered to make two separate payments of $10,000 and $40,000 which he has failed to pay. Since he did not make those payments he now owes even more money as a result. He will now have to pay $100,000 as well as an annual interest rate of 10%.
