Ma$e

Can't Nobody Hold Me Down

... Except the I.R.S.

4/23/2012 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mase
Is Diddy's former prodige Ma$e caught up on his income tax payments? Eh-Eh,  Eh-Eh.

According to documents filed in Florida by the IRS, Ma$e owes a total of $124,774.85 in back taxes ... stemming from the years 2000, 2001 and 2004.

Perhaps not coincidentally, Ma$e retired from the music business in 1999 after saying he got a "calling from God." After a turn with the ministry, Ma$e returned with an album in (you guessed it) 2004.

A call to Ma$e's rep was not returned.

WHAT IN THE WORLD    

GEEZ LOUISE, GUYS!! When in heaven's name will anyone on the TMZ staff learn grammar and how to spell?? It's "PROTEGE" not "PRODIGE!" There is no such word!

FYI: pro·té·gé   [proh-tuh-zhey, proh-tuh-zhey] Show IPA
noun
a person under the patronage, protection, or care of someone interested in his or her career or welfare.
Origin: 1780–90; < French, noun use of past participle of protéger to protect < Latin prōtegere. See protect

Harvey, please cough up the funds for some dictionaries and thesauruses for your staff, PUH-LEEZE (incorrectly spelled on purpose!)

What's happening to TMZ? The 12-year olds are running the asylum? Stories about people no one's heard of; terrible grammar and spelling. What happened to real celebrities and at least a token attempt to spell correctly?

This guy was barely famous 15 years ago. He was just the guy with diddy talking about how much money they have.


Guess he didn't save the money.
