Fat Joe Turns Himself Into Jail For Tax Evasion!

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersBusted!

fat joe eyeworks production

And for Fat Joe's next magic trick, he turned himself into…jail! Hmm well, that was anti-climactic, and hardly magical.

Fat Joe officially checked himself into the custody of the Federal Detention Center in Miami today, where he will serve the next 4 months!

Pro: it's in Miami! Yay! Con: it's a jail in Miami. Boo!

As we reported earlier, the rapper pleaded guilty to shortchangin' the IRS over $1 millon (cue: Dr. Evil laugh) in taxes during the years of 2007 and 2008.

In addition to those 4 months, which was reduced down from a two year sentence, Fat Joe will have to play a $15,000 fine, and face a one-year supervised release.

And more likely than not, he'll have to sign up for a membership to turbotax.com.

We hope these next four months make Fat Joe realize that although filing your taxes can be a pain, it's an even bigger one not to do it. Unfortunately, unlike Monopoly, there is no Get Out Of Jail Free card.

Al Pacino Signs His Autograph On A Check To The IRS And Pays Off Tax Lien!

Filed under: Legal MattersAl Pacino

al pacino

We bet Al Pacino recently released a big old "hooah!"

Al was in some serious Heat after the State of California dealt him a tax lien in May. The actor apparently owed $31,706.04 in back taxes for the years of 2009 and 2011.

However, Al made them an offer they couldn't refuse: a check that quickly lifted the lien! What a Stand Up Guy!

Al probably didn't have to suffer any Insomnia over his debts, because as of July 31, the lien was released!

He certainly knows that you have to keep your friends close, but the IRS closer, and that it's not personal. It's strictly business.

We certainly hope that just when Al thinks he's out, they don't pull him back in again!

No, no, no, not pure in THAT way!

C'mon, Teresa Giudice has four kids after all. But her occasional bestie on Real Housewives of New Jersey is sure that her friend is pure when it comes to crime.

Kim DePaolo, who miiiight not be the best person to defend you, recently spoke out in Tre's defense in regard to her 39 counts of fraud that could land her in prison for over 50 years.

Teresa might be facing a hefty case, but Kim is sure her partner in crime buddy is as innocent as they come! She explained:

RHONJ's Teresa Giudice & Hubby Facing 50+ Years In Prison For NEW, Juicy Fraud Charges!

teresa and joe guidice fraud arrest

Holy shiz!

Teresa Giudice's castmates on Real Housewives of New Jersey have often accused her of being fake, but now it seems the LAW is accusing her of the same!

Her juicy beefcake of a hubby, Joe Giudice, has been in hot water with legal issues for some time now, but he's no longer alone. Both reality TV divas have JUST been hit with 39 counts that include conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud and tax evasion!

This shiz is far from minor because they could now be facing over 50 years in prison if convicted! And we're pretty sure prison doesn't supply you with meatball and wine making ingredients either, so they'll be screwed.

U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced the charges today claiming

Courtney Love Needs To Pony Up Over $260,000 To The IRS!

Filed under: Legal MattersCourtney Love

courtney love tax lien irs

Is this why she's releasing a memoir and a new album??

We're not totes sure, but there does seem to be a little connection going on as Courtney Love was recently hit with a major tax lien by the IRS.

The IRS filed the lien against Courtney as it appears she owes $266,861.01 in back taxes from 2009 and 2011!

But we're sure Courtney will be able to dig her way out of this mess because it's not her first time owing Uncle Sam!

She was supposedly hit with a tax lien in 2009 for owing $324,335.21 and ended up paying that off.

Just put something juicy in that memoir, Courtney, and we're sure that bill will be gone in no time!

Lauryn Hill Thinks Reverse Racism Is 'Ridiculous!' Blames Jail Time On Historical Racism!

Filed under: Legal MattersLauryn Hill

laurynhill

On the day before going to prison for three months for unpaid taxes, Lauryn Hill went on at great length in an open letter on Tumblr about racism and, in turn, reverse racism.

Here's what she had to say:

"The concept of reverse racism is flawed, if not absolutely ridiculous. Most, if not all of the negative responses from people of color toward white people, are reactions to the hatred, violence, cruelty and brutality that they were shown by white people for centuries."

Lauryn went on to further question the legitimacy of reverse racism based on historical context:

Diddy’s Having Another Real Estate Sale, And You’re Invited!!!

Filed under: Music MinuteDiddyFor Reals Estate

wenn20319052

Diddy decided to do some spring cleaning in a MAJOR way this year. He’s not just cleaning OUT his numerous properties, he’s getting rid of them!! And at deeply discounted prices!!

He hasn’t quite mustered up the strength to get rid of allll of his luxury properties (yet), but he’s off to a great start! Right now Diddy has listed two of his coveted homes, and at asking prices that are literally millions of dollars below what he’s asked for them in the past.

For instance. Diddy’s Alpine, NJ estate was listed for $13.5 million a few years ago, but today Diddy is only asking a measly $9.99 million! Still a pretty penny for the average bloke, but it’s a three acre manor that pretty much sounds like a luxury resort complete with a pool, tennis courts, putting green, and aquarium.

Here’s the lowdown on the second property: It’s a swanky Manhattan apartment “designed for entertaining”. He asked $8.5 million for it last year, but this year he’s only asking $7.9 million! Not too shabby!

So why the property purge?
