R.Kelly may believe he can fly, but he apparently doesn’t think he needs to pay his taxes. The popular R&B singer reportedly owes $4.85 million in unpaid taxes dating back from 2005 to 2010. The Huffington Post reports:

TMZ reports that the R. Kelly, the Grammy Award-winning R&B star, owes a cool $4.85 million in unpaid taxes.

The singer owes money for every year between 2005 and 2010. In 2005, he failed to pay nearly $1.5 million, according to TMZ.

This is only the latest bad news for the financially-strapped singer. Last summer, it came to light that Kelly had failed to make mortgage payments on his Chicago-area mansion for more than one year — he was then slapped with a $2.9 million foreclosure suit. The 11,000-square-foot Olympia Fields home went on the market in December with an asking price of $1.595 million.
