Published July 25, 2011

It looks like R. Kelly has more than mortgage problems hanging over his head. According to tax records, the IRS recently slapped the R in R&B with a bill of more $837,000 in back taxes.

The news comes just one month after the IRS forgave Kells for an even heftier tax burden of $1,036,858. Two weeks ago the singer was targeted in a foreclosure suit filed by JP Morgan Chase for failure to pay the loan on his $2.9 million mansion in Chicago.

R. Kelly's troubles extended beyond finances when he was rushed to the hospital last week and underwent throat surgery to drain an abscess.
