Super producer and artist Sean Garrett has produced 17 number one hit singles for artists including Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Janet Jackson, and Mary J. Blige, so he has to be caked up, right? Wrong!
According to TMZ, the State of Georgia filed a tax lien against Garrett earlier this year, claiming he owes $732,553.57 in back taxes for the years 2006 and 2007. Sources close to Garrett say the tax bill stems from an error made by an ex employee of Sean’s — and they claim Sean is taking steps to resolve the issue.
As if that wasn’t enough,, Garrett has somehow gone broke and allegedly owes American Express $108,084.62 in unpaid bills. The credit card company is currently suing Garrett, who owes double the amount of his credit limit.
A rep for Sean Garrett told TMZ, “The lawsuit has no merit. The charges in question are result of identity theft and fraudulent transactions that have been in dispute by Sean’s accounting team with AmEx for quite some time. He and his team are currently looking into all options including a private investigation.”
Damn, son! I hope he can get his tax and AMEX situations worked out, credit card fraud takes a long time to prove and dealing with the IRS is no walk in the park. His credit score must be in the dumps right now.
