I see why Beyonce went solo… being in a 90’s chart topping group does not equate to financial success…

peep the struggle below…

Chile these 90s stars are not doing right with their money, earlier this year it came out that Jasmine Guy and Vanessa Williams both owed the IRS and were getting slapped with liens, now Maxine –formally of En Vogue and the front man from the group Next –RL are filing for Bankruptcy.

A few years ago, Maxine left En Vogue and joined Dawn Robinson on team “I use to be in En Vogue, so I’m going to book shows under the name En Vogue,” so because Cindy and Terry were still booking shows under the name En Vogue it was causing confusion for promoters (as far as who would show up) all four decided to go to court. Dawn & Maxine v. Terry & Cindy ended in Dawn and Maxine losing their case and being told by the judge to stop using the group’s name. Because of this, Maxine claims that she was over $100,000 in debt.

Her debts include $212,000 for her house, $22,000 in California taxes, $17,000 in lawyer fees and $539 on her Victoria Secret credit card (might as well be sexy while flopping.) She and Dawn are filing for appeal to use the En Vogue name again… because that is so much easier than putting on your big girl VS panties and working it out with the other group members like adults…

RL asked in the 1999 hit song “The Best Man I Can Be” ‘what can a brother do for me?’ hopefully give his ass a loan to pay off his debts. According to the Jasmine BRAND, RL filed bankruptcy in Gerogia Federal Court claiming he only had $50 in cash and $3500 in assets with $116,132.00 owed to creditors. His debt includes $6,000 in back child support, $49,000 owed to the IRS and $61,000 owed to American Express. RL claims that he only made $5,000 in 2013 and earned nothing in 2011 & 2012. His claims his assets are at $2,950 – this includes clothes, a computer, a dining room set, recording equipment and a bedroom set.

Accoriding to his rep, he was robbed by his accountant years ago for a “substantial” amount of money and the accountant is now deceased.

And I thought my debt to Sallie Mae was a lot…
