Either Wesley Snipes is going to have to do runner, or he’s going to have to call up John Leguizamo and start brainstorming who they can get to take over for Patrick Swayze (Cumberbatch would be my choice) in a To Wong Fu reboot because he is going to need a boat load of cash fast. The Blast reports that a judge recently denied Wesley’s settlement proposal to the IRS to pay $850,000 instead of the $9.5 million he owed, which was originally a $23.5 million bill for unpaid taxes for the years 1999 – 2001 (according to Forbes, he earned about $40 million during that time period). Now Wesley has to pay up or die trying.
Charlie Sheen will go down in history as being a human public service announcement for why you shouldn’t blow all your money on porn stars and blow. Charlie has been involved in some serious financial fuckery as of late and is being chased by the scariest man any rich person could fear: The Taxman. Charlie is trying his hardest to pay back all the money he owes the government but it’s a bit tough when he doesn’t have many coins coming in.
The Blast reports that Lindsay Lohan is in arrears with the United States IRS to the tune of $100,000 for unpaid taxes. Lindsay claims the failure to pay was not her fault, but instead, is the fault of her management company. And Lindsay is launching an investigation into the firm to find out what had happened. I have a feeling that Detective La Toya Jackson might close up shop and permanently remove her plaque that reads Celebrity Shenanigans Solved by La Toya ™ after she hears a desperate pounding on the door from a certain chapped, sun-damaged and desperate dehydrated apricot screaming “Help me, La Toya! You’re my only hope!“.
