Grammy-winning singer, and Fugees muse, Roberta Flack is killing the IRS softly — by pulling a Wyclef with her tax bill.
The 70-year-old singer owes the IRS more than $90,000 in delinquent federal taxes, according to public records.
- The IRS filed a $90,693 tax lien against Roberta Flack on Dec. 22 with the New York City Register.
The address on the lien is The Dakota, the exclusive New York City apartment building where John Lennon was shot and killed 31 years ago. His widow, Yoko Ono, wrote the liner notes to Flack’s new album of Beatles covers.
Flack’s manager, Suzanne Koga, said the tax lien is being resolved. She also passed along a message from Flack.
“She said, ‘please tell him I said oops,’” Koga said.
“She has a great year set up in front of her. This is not the best way to start it, but it certainly will not stop all the great music she’s got coming out.”
