Rapper Ja Rule just got 28 more months of jail time added to his already two-year prison sentence for illegal gun possession. The extra behind-bars time was added on Monday after the rapper admitted to not paying taxes for five years! Uncle Sam is having none of that.
The Associated Press reports that Ja Rule agreed to pay more than $1.1 million in outstanding taxes plus penalties for his 2004-2008 returns and that he will be allowed to serve the sentences concurrently, which means that he is only adding five months to his time behind bars.
"Taxpayers do not have the luxury of deciding whether to comply with laws," Judge Patty Shwartz said at Newark federal court. True dat.
What do you think of Ja Rule's continued legal troubles?
