R. Kelly owes R38m in taxes
R. Kelly reportedly owes R38.4-million in back taxes.
The 'I Believe I Can Fly' singer is said to have not paid anything on his earnings since 2005, according to documents filed by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
Despite the huge bill, the singer is "confident" the matter can be resolved.
His spokesman told gossip website TMZ.com: "R. Kelly is in the process of working everything out with the government and is confident that all his obligations will be satisfied."
Meanwhile, Kelly will headline the Reggae Sumfest in Montego Bay, which takes place from 15 to 21 July.
He had been due to perform at last year's Reggae Sumfest but had to pull out after complaining of throat pain and later having an emergency operation on his throat.
Sumfest organiser, Johnny Gourzong, said: "R. Kelly was so disappointed with not being able to come to Sumfest last year that we spent the whole year trying to work out a make-up date, which was Reggae Sumfest 2012."
