Uncle Sam is calling on Doug E. Fresh for back taxes owed. That’s because according to the Detroit News, the genius behind the Dougie owes $2,276,848 million in back taxes. The government wants his money, hence the IRS filed a lien against Fresh with the New York City register’s office in October (and then they hit their Dougie).

Fresh, born Douglas E. Davis, has been in tax trouble before. In 2008, he was sought for $367,000 in delinquent tax payments. Yet despite his financial issues, the 44-year-old has delved into other business ventures outside the music industry, opening a restaurant in Harlem last month.
The eatery, Doug E’s, was met with criticism after its opening was delayed by two years. Doug E’s, located in Harlem, specializes in a variety of fast food options, including waffles and fried chicken.
