“Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Mimi Faust appears to be in trouble with the Georgia Department of Revenue.
The television personality whose real name is Oluremi Fela Faust, has allegedly been struck with two tax liens after owing back more than $26,000 in taxes plus penalties, according to court documents reportedly obtained by the Blast.
Faust allegedly owes a total of $26, 775. 35 for the years 2012, 2012, 2015 and 2016. It’s unclear as to why she supposedly didn’t pay her debt, but the situation appears to be a little over her head. She however has yet to address the allegations and has been somewhat mute on her social media.
In 2014, the reality star became the center of controversy after releasing a raunchy sex tap with ex-boyfriend Nikko Smith. For months, the couple claimed the video was stolen out of Smith’s bag while at the airport, hours after it was leaked all over social media.
The pair later admitted during season 3, the leaking of their sex tape was staged and sold to Vivid Entertainment for a pretty penny. They reportedly raked up more than $400,00 in just pre-sales according to US Weekly. It’s unclear how much Faust received in total for the tape, but she apparently gets a check for the rest of her life.
“I get a check every quarter for the rest of my life,” the mother of one said during season 3 of LHHATL. “Stupid decision? Yes. I wish I could take it back.”
At the time of the released sex tape, the reality star received a mass of backlash from parents and fans online.
“Mimi Faust did that sex tape for it to flop and for WHAT? She is still in the very same position as far as I can tell. Where are the fruit?! 😒.”
“Umm this is sad for real…Why is Mimi Faust not only in a sex tape but selling it? #nowords.”
“Mimi Faust has a whole daughter and is releasing sex tapes….sad I expected so much more from her smh.”
