Black Eyed Peas members will.i.am, Taboo and apl.de.ap have filed suit against their former financial advisor, accusing him of costing them over $3 million. Yikes! Mo' money, mo' problems.
The trio claims Sean M. Larkin failed to file state and federal income tax returns on their behalf between 2002 and 2009. Ugh, that's a headache.
A lawyer representing the three pop stars writes Larkin "falsely represented… on numerous occasions that he was taking care of everything and that they had nothing to worry about."
The band members confronted Larkin after they discovered they had massive tax bills in 2009, and he assured them he would file the delinquent returns and cover all the costs. But, the suit alleges that "Larkin's representations proved to be false."
Larkin was fired and the taxes were paid but all is not right with the world. Larking allegedly has yet to provide them with financial records they need to complete returns for their touring company.
What do you think about celebs being snookered by shoddy and shady accountants?
