Rappers Foxy Brown and Toni Braxton face tax liens

Singers Foxy Brown and Toni Braxton reportedly face hefty tax liens, ranging from $79,315 for Braxton to $641,558 for Brown.

According to AllHipHop.com, Brown's unpaid taxes owed to the state of New York date back to May 2003, and six liens have been filed against the rapper. This is the latest in a number of legal wrangles in recent years for Brown, who faced assault charges and served eight months of a one-year sentence at Rose Singer Center for women, at Rikers Island in New York, early last year. Accusations that she received favorable treatment there led to the resignation of several top officials at the New York State Department of Correctional Services.

Also running into tax trouble are R&B singer Toni Braxton and her husband, Keri Lewis, who are accused of owing $79,315 in back taxes to the state of California. The state issued a lien against the couple in March. Braxton filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in 1998, owing over $1 million.
