Lil' Kim

Dancing for Dollars

3/14/2009 10:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lil KimLil' Kim is on the wrong show -- she shoulda been on "Deal or No Deal" so she could pay her taxes ... cause melting down a plastic trophy isn't going to make a dent.

The "Dancing With the Stars" contestant reportedly owes $979,090 in delinquent state and federal taxes, according to The Detroit News. Uncle Sam, as well as his cousin's in NY, CA, and NJ, also claims she owes them.

Lil's rep says, " Lil' Kim is paying her tax debt and will continue to do so."

How do you rack up almost a mil in debt when you didn't have to even pay rent for an entire year?

People like this will be broke on their ass before 40. They are selfish, horrible money planners, and downright dumb.

Yet they make an example out of Janine Lindemulder because she's an adult actress and throw her behind bars for a misdameanor non-payment of taxes ... not fair. Free Janine!

Hey Barack Obama. This is just a simple and common mistake. There is just simply no intention to defraud the Government of their hard earned money. Maybe she could be hired as one of Secretary Geitners personal assistants. Isn't he having trouble finding one? She fits all your qualifications. He didn't pay his taxes for years and you put him in charge of the IRS. What's the big deal?

I am not watching Dancing with the Stars anymore. They have been setting their standards pretty low the last two years. First Kim K. and now Little Kim, a known felon, gangster, looser!! Very sad.

Yet another celeb who cannot handle a bit of success. They're like kids in a candy store; (apologies to the real kids who are probably more mature than them.)

At their age, they need caregivers?

To the TMZ Staff:
Shame on you. Your article is wordy very disrespectful. As we all know, justice is not blind, what has been good for the gander has not been good for the goose. The government allowed Willie Nelson to make songs to pay off his debt, but they went in a seized Red Foxx's assest. The Justice system and the over all Government, eight out of ten times, is not fair when it comes to dealing with a person of a non-white race. This is not to take away from some recent progress, but there is still a ways to go before there will be equal justice.
