Many already know that MC Hammer had been through financial trouble after blowing much of his money in the 90s, but while his career as a rapper may be over, the debt he owes has not been forgotten.
51-year-old Stanley K. Burrell (MC Hammer), and his wife Stephanie are being sued by the IRS for not paying $798,033.48 on their income taxes from 1996 to 1997. Sadly for Hammer, this is all based off of money that he made in the 90’s when he was topping charts and raking in big paychecks. That was 16 years ago, when his net worth was 33 million dollars. Times have changed and even though he filed for bankruptcy in 1996, the government still wants its money.
According a TMZ report, every check that Hammer gets will now go straight to the government to pay off his debt.
It looks like Christmas this year might be a little hard at the Hammer house.
