Though this is not the end of his financial woes. The IRS filed another lien against him last year for $4 million. The feds claim that Williams owned Uncle Sam $3.2 million from 2008. They also claim that also he owes $829, 352 from 2009.
Besides his money issues, Williams is facing felony reckless evasion charges in Sacramento. He missed to previous hearings. But he said he had to miss those hearing because he needed to attend a child custody hearing in Los Angeles.
