The Internal Revenue Service has reportedly filed tax liens against singers Lil Kim and Sean Kingston.

The agency filed a lien against the property of R&B singer Kingston for $131,379 in unpaid taxes from 2009 after warning him, “We have made a demand for payment,” according to TMZ. Kingston, whose real name is Kisean Anderson, was badly injured last year in a jet-skiing accident in Miami Beach.

The IRS is also pressing rap singer Lil Kim for $1,026,862 in back taxes from 2002-2009, according to TMZ.

The IRS reportedly filed the tax lien with the Los Angeles County Recorder of Deeds. The singer, whose real name is Kimberly Denise Jones, has been experiencing tax problems for many years, with the latest amount of $86,347 added on to her existing bill in 2009. She has been in legal trouble before and in 2005 was sentenced to a year and a day in prison for her involvement in a shooting outside the Hot 97 studios in New York.
