'Love & Hip Hop' Star

$52,000

Bitch Slap

EXCLUSIVE

0823-k-michelle-getty
"Love & Hip Hop" star K. Michelle is finally getting a taste of her own medicine -- at least in the slapping department -- because the IRS just hit her hard.

Uncle Sam has filed a $52,415.09 tax lien against K. -- who famously slapped her co-star MiMi Faust this year -- claiming she didn't muster up enough tax dough in the years 2008 ($47,710.46) and 2009 ($4,704.63).

2008 was a big year for K. -- her singing career took off when she signed with Jive records. In 2009, she released a single with Missy Elliott. Things slowed down afterward, until she signed on for "Love" in 2012.

As the saying goes ... mo' money, mo' problems.

Actually her career didn't take off in 2008 or 2009 because her ex-boyfriend, who was an executive at her label squandered her recording budget. Releasing a single when you were given a budget for an album is not a sign that your career has taken off. All she has to show for that 7 figure budget is some pretty bad plastic surgery. And the former label exec has the audacity to brag about buying her a new butt and teeth. Both of them were booted from the label over the debacle. She didn't release her first album until 2 or 3 weeks ago. You didn't know all of this TMZ? You really are falling down on the job. Anyway, I think it's time for her to sue Memphitz. Lil Wayne you might as well pay the taxes for your ex-wife's new husband.

I have no idea who this is, but apparently another pseudo celebrity who believes they are above everyone else and shouldn't pay tax.
