Comedian Sinbad Broke — Owes Millions In Back Taxes

SinbadPopular 90s comedian Sinbad is reportedly broke, and has filed bankruptcy after being hit with some hefty paid due tax bills from the government.

According to The Detroit News, the 53-year-old comedian (real name: Sinbad Adkins) owes more than $8.15 million in delinquent federal taxes, court filings indicated.

Now, the U.S. Attorney General’s office wants his house sold to help pay down his debt.

Earlier this month, a federal judge was asked to foreclose on several tax liens and determine whether or not Sinbad was the owner of a $1.5 million home in Hidden Hills, California.

The very next day, he filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy.

In the late 80s and early 90s, Sinbad was a big star. He began his career on “Star Search”, followed by roles on sitcoms and movies, before landing his very own show on Fox.

He’s appeared in films roles sporadically since.

  10. Nobody is perfect… a job is a job whether you are an entertainer or saying would you like fries with that! Sinbad is my favorite comedian #2 would be Bill Cosby because they are both intelligent and extremely funny with loads of talent and never use vulgar language. I do like the other comedians as well however Sinbad & Cosby are in a league of their own.

    I have missed you Sinbad and I hope to see more of you! Where U Been 2010 is ephing hilarious!!! I’m a musician and your age so i can relate to the musical portion as well!! I am trying my damn est to wake the people up to what real music is and a musician is someone that actually plays an instrument. Being a ex-pro drummer i too feel sorry for the younger generation… you are 100% who are they going to go see?

    I hope all is well with you!! I am a geeky nerdy used to be hot girl drummer and i can’t hold a job either LOL!!!
