American Idol winner Ruben Studdard has been ordered to pay back almost $200,000 (GBP108,108) to the U.S. government.
According to court records, tax liens have been filed on the singer's properties for unpaid federal and local taxes.
The majority of Studdard's failed payments date back to 2003, when the star won $1 million (GBP540,541) on the reality show competition.
