Uh oh. According to TMZ, Nelly owes the IRS over $2 million in unpaid taxes.

“He’s also got state tax trouble — earlier this year, the Missouri Department of Revenue said the St. Louis rapper owed $149,511 in unpaid state taxes from 2013,” TMZ reports. “He originally owed a mere $113,533 … but interest is a bitch.”

Sound familiar? That’s because Nelly isn’t the only one to run into trouble with the Internal Revenue Service. Here are other famous folks who have been in hot water with the government agency.
