TMZ reports that the R. Kelly, the Grammy Award-winning R&B star, owes a cool $4.85 million in unpaid taxes.

The singer owes money for every year between 2005 and 2010. In 2005, he failed to pay nearly $1.5 million, according to TMZ.

This is only the latest bad news for the financially-strapped singer. Last summer, it came to light that Kelly had failed to make mortgage payments on his Chicago-area mansion for more than one year -- he was then slapped with a $2.9 million foreclosure suit. The 11,000-square-foot Olympia Fields home went on the market in December with an asking price of $1.595 million.

And in July, the R&B star was rushed to the hospital with throat pain and had to undergo emergency surgery.

Kelly's next album, which will be his 11th studio release, comes out on June 26, according to MTV.
