… but the State of California is serious about collecting their due — here’s a little salacious gossip:
Rap singer and actor Snoop Dogg is facing a tax lien from the State of California, along with assault charges.
His real name, Calvin Broadus Jr., shows up on a list of California tax scofflaws, alongside the likes of Burt Reynolds, Dionne Warwick and Sinbad. The California Franchise Tax Board lists him as owing $284,053 and a tax lien has been placed on his residence, according to E! Online. He is in good company, however. Other rappers with tax troubles include Lil’ Kim, Method Man and Xzibit.
