Former “American Idol” winner Ruben Studdard and estranged wife Zuri McCants are in trouble with the IRS again after failing to pay nearly $200,000 in taxes. This is the second time Rubben Studdard has been slapped by the IRS for failure to pay his taxes.
In 2008, Ruben Studdard landed in hot water for not paying $200,000 in taxes owed to the IRS. A property lien was filed against him and his wife to recover the revenue. Now the IRS has filed another lien against the former couple for over $180,000 for back taxes owed from 2009.
