Ginuwine Financial Problems
In November 2014, one of Ginuwine's lawyers revealed that the singer is on the verge of filing for bankruptcy. In the revelation, his lawyer confirmed that Ginuwine owes the IRS at least $300,000 and much more to his law firm and various other creditors. One of those creditors, Robert Reives, was the executive producer of his hit record "The Bachelor". Reives is demanding at least $250,000 in unpaid royalties dating. Ginuwine's lawyer blames the singer's financial problems on an expensive divorce from his wife, musician Solé. The parties suing Ginuwine claim that he is falsely proclaiming to be bankrupt in order to avoid further settlements. The case is ongoing as of this writing.
