After prison stints and beef with other rappers, getting caught up in owing money to the taxman has become the new rite of passage for some celebrities.

Since parachute-panted star MC Hammer got the ball rolling in 1993, when he filed for bankruptcy after owing more than $13m to Uncle Sam, a huge list of stars have followed suit, being hit with huge bills after some questionable accounting.

In recent times famous names such as Lil Wayne, Bow Wow, R Kelly and Lil Kim have all found themselves in the IRS' pocket, with even some doing jail time.
