The IRS Hits Nelly With 2.4 Million Tax Lien

Nelly Detained In Texas After Cops Find Heroin & 10 Pounds Of Weed On His Tour Bus *UPDATE* Nelly Issues Statement. Denies Knowing Drugs Were On Bus

Nelly has a huge tax debt to tackle.

TMZ reports that the "Country Grammer" hit maker was hit with a $2,412,283 federal tax lien in August.

The government could start seizing the rapper's property and assets if the debt isn't taken care of soon, but Nelly's reps say he is already working with Uncle Sam to get it resolved.

Nelly also reportedly owes the state of Missouri $149,511 in unpaid state taxes from 2013.


 Nelly's tour bus was stopped in a Texas town today and police found a large stash of contraband on board.


TMZ is reporting that Nelly's tour bus was stopped at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca and a police canine detected the presence of drugs.

When the bus was searched police found 36 small baggies of heroin (totaling .64 ounces) and over ten pounds of weed inside a large green duffel bag.


A loaded .45 caliber pistol was also found.

According to the report, there were seven people on the tour bus. They were all detained until one of them, a man named, Brian Keith Jones, admitted the drugs were his. He was placed under arrest.


Nelly and the rest of his crew were eventually released.


Sierra Blanca is the same town where Fiona Apple, Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, and "Social Network" actor Armie Hammer have been busted for drug possession in the past. You would think by now celebrities would stay clear of this town, but they keep passing through and keep getting arrested.




Nelly is speaking out about being detained in Texas and the drugs that were found on his tour bus. The St. Louis rapper issued a statement to TMZ, saying he had no idea the drugs were on board.


It is my understanding a member of my staff made an unfortunate decision to bring unlawful materials onto our tour bus that resulted in his arrest this morning. Neither I nor anyone else on the tour bus was aware of his decision to bring these on board. Law enforcement officials did not  press charges against anyone other than that individual.


He later took to his Twitter account to vent about the situation.




Do you believe Nelly's story?

First off why are cops searching a tour bus? Who consented to that without a warrant? Plus who tipped the cops off anyway? And where is Nelly performing and what is he performing? Who really wants to see dude now of days? These kids don't know jack about Nelly! No shade I'm just saying. Think about it!

Right, how do you not know whats going on your own tour bus.  If that is true then he really need to evaluate the irresponsible dead weight that he's dragging around with him, because it doesn't look bad on the person that brought it on the bus it looks bad on him since he's in the public eye, or should I say was in the public eye. lol
