Xzibit decides to try out the old “owe more money to the federal government than I have” trick, and it is panning out how you would think.  Shots fired by The Detroit News for calling him out on leasing his Range Rover.

  • Former “Pimp My Ride” host Xzibit, a double-threat Detroit-born rapper/actor, owes more than $959,523 in delinquent federal taxes, according to public records.
    A lien filed last month is the fourth tax problem in recent years for Xzibit, real name Alvin Joiner, who had a cameo as a lunch-line linguist in Eminem’s “8 Mile.”
    Xzibit traced the roots of his financial problems to the cancellation of his MTV show and the imminent foreclosure of his Woodland Hills, Calif., home in July 2009, according to U.S. Bankruptcy Court records.
    He’s filed bankruptcy twice since 2009, but both filings were dismissed for various reasons. On July 29, 2009, he listed assets totaling $739,433 — mostly homes in California and New Mexico — and more than $1.4 million in liabilities, according to court records.
    For a man who reached mainstream fame through an MTV show about pimping vehicles, Xzibit didn’t own one. He was leasing a 2006 Range Rover for $2,230 a month, according to bankruptcy court records.

    I dont understand how all these celebritites end up with hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt? Like come on, are you fucking stupid or what? Why lease a car for 2230 dollars per month instead of just buying it? I understand that its hard to adjust to a lifestyle youre not familiar with but please use your common sense people! If you make money, you pay taxes, simple as that! Look at Wesly Snipes, Eddie Murphy, all these actors and musicians.. use your fucking brains people!
