Method Man Pleads Guilty To Tax Evasion


Former Wu-Tang Clan member Method Man pleaded guilty on Monday to evading state taxes over a four-year period, costing the music star more than $100,000 in fines and fees. The rapper, 39, whose real name is Clifford Smith, was arrested in October 2009 owing nearly $33,000 to the New York state government from 2004 through 2007.

His attorney, Peter M. Frankel, said the mistake was caused by a previous accountant, who has since been replaced. “He had business people who were supposed to file, but didn’t,” Frankel said. “As soon as he found about it, he took responsibility.” Method Man ended up paying a total of $106,000 in back taxes, penalties, fines and interest. reuters
