Keshia Knight Pulliam, the local actress just booted off "Celebrity Big Brother," owes the Georgia Department of Revenue $102,286.37 in unpaid taxes.
In a filing in the Fayette Ga. Superior Court from December 30, 2017, the former "Cosby Show" kid owes $51,469 in unpaid state taxes from 2011 and 2013. But she has since accrued $27,806.13 in interest, $12,667.44 in penalties, $10,293.80 in collection fees and $50 in extra costs. So her total now exceeds $100,000.
The filings do not indicate she has paid what she has owed since the December 30 filing.
Pulliam asked to leave CBS's "Celebrity Big Brother" on Monday because she was having trouble creating breast milk for her one-year-old daughter Ella Grace. Her castmates obliged, saving Shannon Elizabeth from a possible blindside.
TMZ said CBS lured the celebrities with a $200,000 guaranteed payday with more money the longer they stay on the show. The winner could take home $500,000.
