R Kelly reportedly owes millions of dollars in unpaid taxes to the Internal Revenue Service.

The I Believe I Can Fly singer - who last year was forced to sell his Chicago mansion after it became the subject of a lawsuit over unpaid mortgage payments - owes almost five million dollars to the IRS, according to documents held by the Cook County Recorder of Deeds and obtained by The Chicago Sun-Times.

Kelly owes the money for taxes dating back as far as 2005. He paid 2.6 million dollars in back taxes in 2008 and another one million dollars last year, but the records show he still owes the federal government more than 4.8 million dollars.

The Sun-Times reports Kelly spokesman Allan Mayer said last year that the Grammy-winning singer didn't have any serious financial troubles.

Kelly was acquitted on child pornography charges in 2008.
