The Internal Revenue Service has filed tax liens totaling more than $4.5 million against the rapper T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, and his wife “Tiny,” singer-songwriter Tameka Cottle.

The first tax lien, filed in Georgia, stated the couple owes $1,397,283.47 in unpaid taxes for 2012, while the second tax lien said they owe $3,173,476.39 in unpaid taxes for 2013, according to the Daily Mail.

Harris, 34, is estimated to be worth $215 million and was one of the highest paid rap performers this year, according to People magazine. He founded Grand Hustle Records, owns two popular nightclubs and restaurants in Atlanta, along with several clothing companies, a $4 million mansion, a Ferrari Spider, a Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren, and gold and diamond Rolex watches. He and Cottle, 40, married in 2010.

A representative for T.I. said he is working on a resolution. “Mr. Harris and his team are working with the appropriate parties to resolve this matter,” his rep told Us Weekly.
