Bizarre Hit With $25K Tax Bill; All Members Except Em Owe
Detroit rapper Bizarre is the latest member of D12 to run into tax troubles with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
According to reports, Bizarre owes over $25,000 in delinquent state taxes, making him the fourth member of the group to fun afoul of the IRS.
Lawyers for Bizarre, born Rufus Johnson, said that the bill is due to an accounting screw up from a previous manager.
The result was a $13,853 lien against the rapper in the state of Michigan, an $11,976 lien filed in the state of Georgia against Bizarre and another rapper.
"Mr. Johnson accepts full responsibility for this tax liability and is currently working with the taxing authorities to pay the funds due and resolve this problem," his attorney, Jeffery Freeman told the Detroit News. "Mr. Johnson has returned to his old management team, and his tax and business issues are now being handled properly."
With the exception of Eminem, each member of D12 is in tax troubles.
Both Denaun Porter and Kuniva owe about $200,000, while Swifty McVay owes around $25,000.
