The majority of Kim’s debt came from $2 million owed on her money. In addition, she said she owed $1.4 million in unpaid federal taxes from 2004-2017 and $376k in taxes owed to the New Jersey Division of Taxation for the years 2004-2017.

The pint-sized star said she pulled in $398k in 2017 and $823k in 2016. The rapper said she supports her daughter and did not list that she received child support.

Months later, Kim asked the court to dismiss the case claiming she no longer needed help. She said her finances were back in order and she could handle the debt without the court’s protection.
