: A few months ago Wesley Snipes surrendered to authorities charging him with federal tax evasion. But it now looks like he may have more trouble ahead of him than just the law.
One of Wesley's pals reached out to MediaTakeOut.com with concerns that the Blade star may be on the verge of harming himself. The friend, who's known Wesley for many years, claims that Snipes has been acting strangely lately - and the behavior is worrisome.
The pal told MediaTakeOut.com, "Wesley has been really depressed over the [tax evasion] case. I've never seen him this way." The concerned friend added, "One time when we were talking about one thing or another and, all of a sudden, he started talking about prison. What struck me about the conversation was that he said something to the effect of 'I can't go to jail if I'm not alive' ... It's that kind of talk that frightens me."
And there's more. Wesley's buddy claims that a few weeks ago, the actor spent days hauled up in a hotel room - all by himself. The friend explained to MediaTakeOut.com, "He claimed he was meditating in there, but no one meditates for days. His wife is worried, his friends are worried, and I really want him to get some help."
Wesley Snipes is scheduled to stand trial for tax evasion charges this fall. If convicted he faces up to 16 years in prison.
That just let's you see that you can't trust anyone, I'm sure he's not personally doing his taxes. But his accountant has definitely hung him out to dry. All he can do is man up and deal with whatever comes his way and be a lot more careful of the people he has in his camp...
Hold your head up Wes...
SOMETHING ABOUT THIS STORY IS JUST AINT RIGHT.
I herd that his accountants where the ones who F UP.
Also I dont think he will do that kind of time anyway. the IRS is just gonna GARNISH the hell out of him and make him pay the rest in some kind of payment plan.
I SEE A BLADE 4 5 6 & 7 coming on, And throw in a couple of MONEY TRAINS & TO WONG FU movies to to pay that debt. lol
I REALLY HOPE THIS IS NOT TRUE. BUT IF IT IS PLEASE WESLEY DONT DO IT HELL IS NOT A PLACE WHERE YOU WANT TO GO. JUST PAY THE MONEY. AND ON ANOTHER NOTE THIS "FRIEND" SHOULD BE TRYINIG TO GET HIM SOME HELPP INSTEAD OF PUTTIN GHIM ON BLAST ON A BLOG SITE NOW THATS NOT RIGHT.
JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this is was happens when u try to beat the system or having shady asss people behind u. killing yourselves will only leave the debt to ur loved ones, don't do that to them. Pay up and shut up. There's plenty of folks that r in debt but i'm sure they not tryna kill themselves. If u stop thinking ur white then u would know black folks know how to handle these kinds of situations.
@lenrocdesigns - DRAINO??!! LMBAO!! I WAS THINKING MORE ALONG THE LINES OF CLOROX!!! HA HA HA HA HA HA!!
WESLEY LOCKED UP IN A HOTEL ROOM FOR DAYS BY HIMSELF MEDITATING??? YEAH, RIGHT!! I BET MY LAST DOLLAR HE WAS ON A COCCAINE AND ALCOHOL BINGE!!
YOU KNOW HOW THE CELEBRITIES DO CHILE - GET STONED, TAKE AWAY THE PAIN!
Hell, i dont want to pay my own taxes and I pay them. These celebs kill me, do wrong and then get depressed over the possible consequences when most of us regular folk's 3 paychecks from being homeless. He would still be wealthy whether he paid his taxes or not.
Pray for him...i think not...he was trying to beat the system...i guess karma comes around...word on the street is he is a woman beater...and he's the cause of Halle Berry being deaf in one ear...oh well ish happens wesley
ROTFLMAO AT MIAMIBLACK34 BLADE 10, 12, 13 LOL...
lmao at C! gotcha! I don't know why you guys call first the way MTO be fuking up your ass come out 100th lol....
Hello everyone, and Pink child at work I have the same problems you are having NOT BEING ABLE TO LOG INTO THIS BOOTLEG ASS SITE, this shyt is so bootleg I have to post the comment like three times then hit the back button for the comment to actually post, lmao....
I cosign sweetness1, I don't get celebs sometimes but I did read it wasn't his fault but he is still at fault cuz how are you going to not pay attention to strangers dealing with your finances... I know I will
Killdanoise1 behave yourself to day, *wink*
I agree with all that say celebs try to get away with stuff and think they are above the rest. Well, I'm normally not a mean person but what they get as a consequence is what they deserve. I'm not saying to kill yourself, but damnit man you brought it on yourself!
Also, is it just me or does anyone else ever wonder why all these "inside" people go to MTO with their stories? I really don't believe it when they say that. MTO should just say "we think that" or "rumor has it" instead of lying and saying that someone told them all of this crap!
I don't know if I believe this one because his finacial advisor took one for the team on this one. Suicide is never the answer. LOL!!! But I hope that was a wake up call for Wesley. No matter how many times you denounce black women and try to be white, America will always find a way to let you know that you ain't nothing but another n*gga and they can try and take eerything you have at the snap of a finger.
Dam, I hope this story anit true, another brother bites the dust..I like Wesely as an actor..but he is a woman beater and sometimes what you do in the dark comes out in the light..DAM MO MONEY MO PROBLEMS
wow mto i hope u aint making this up cause that is wrong u dont make up a story bout someone wanting to committ suicide i highly doubt this is tru i mean y would they tell yall they need to be tellin ppl who can actually help him but i love mto anyways lol
If this is true, I don't think he should kill himself. I agree with miamiblack, they won't put him in jail, they will probably put him on some type of payment plan. They WILL go for anything that's in his name, however, as long as he makes some type of effort to pay, they'll work with him. Tax evasion ain't the way to go. Look at Ronald Isley, and Redd Foxx before he died. They don't play. But God doesn't give you more than you can handle, so stay up Wesley, and anyone else that's in debt or going thru some thangs....
@ Smitty254 - Now that was funny ! HA !
@ richchick - YES HE IS !!!! My friend spotted him in the mall in L.A. with a young chick...and I think she said he had a baby with him? - wasn’t really payin attention to her…cause Mr.Biggs...SMH... really...
what a dumb friend he has for even airing that type of info...
what a dumb wife he has for letting things get out of hand...
if i were married to him, i would have had him PRAYED up and made him PAY up!
but, who's to say that the people he trusted to handle things were doing their jobs, hmmmm
1. he WILL NOT be convicted
2. when is BUSH gonna end this damn war! can somebody send us some memos about that, LOL
boy, i tell ya! anything to keep our minds off of what's REALLY going on...THE WHOLE DAMN WORLD OWES SOMETHIN!
Miami getting folded in prison LMAO!! Wesley just pay the money, you shouldnt justpayed taxes in the first place. You know the government need money to pay for the war and they come after people with money and most important that look at those even more to see if they are giving what they supposed 2!
I think he should do it (butcher himself) Every public entertainer should go out in a bang, it comes along with the job; that's what fame is for. How many people out there would rather die than go back to the projects??? When he gets garnished he's gonna be broke. Wesley's from the hood of NYC, I know what that's about. I rather die than go back living with the conditions of poverty. No really, I hope he don't kill himself that was a shameless joke...
damn smitty I see you da man today lol....
oh my gosh dacandeemancan! that was harsh, go out with a bang? lol... not funny but sorta is...
I usually don't watch television unless its cartoons, i.e. spongebob lol, yeah I know keep jokes to yourself, but ever since I been on MTO I gotta watch so I can keep up with the convos lol, man I watched the game last night on CW and one those dudes are fine, and two the mommy manager is hilarious she makes the show! so I'll definitely be watching more of that and what time this baldwin come on cuz I wanna talk about it too! lol
u just now getting on the game..sad case
i dont know what time it comes on in florida but in cali it comes on at 9 i think
check your local listings lol and im gonna need u to fall back on the spongebob
well this tax thing has certainly driven people to the ropes.. i hope does not kill himself.. cant bother with another Anna Nicole fiasco for real..
be careful of these so called Organizations that can "handle" your taxes
you didn't know?
this is what happens when u as a black man distrust blacks/put the women down and put ALL your trust in the white folks.
everytime this happens, the accts. f** U. snipes didn't have accts. in the beginning, so some of those taxes stem from the early years. when he takes care of the taxes, then Su Yung is going to leave with what's left just like wayne brady's wife. don't feel sorry for him.
i knew wesley was crazy ever since i heard he hit halle berry so hard in her ear she lost partial hearing. this is karma biting him in his ass for the wrong hes done. but taxes aint nun to kill yo self over tho.
I hope they dont lock him up but unfortunately Mr.Biggs aka Ronald Isley is in the federal penn serving his time for tax evasion and they said he is not doing so well especially with his older age, so unfortunately they might put Wesley in too.
What's up 2hott?
Smitty is really a cutie...you couldn't see his myspace page...well he has a baby face, real nice LIPS...um kissable lips...his complexion is caramel delight...he has some height to him...plus is a nice size in weight...and baby boy got big feet and big hands...ummm what that do?...lol
He need to quit bullshyting and pay those damn taxes. He done played in damn near a million movies and was the main character in every last one he played in and you mean to tell me he don't want to pay his taxes. Come now... for crying out loud. these celebrities trips me out. They have so much freakin' money but don't want to spend on what they suppose to. They rather do drugs, and buy hoe's with it. Then when it's time to do something destructive with it then they go A.W.O.L. He done ran and hide so much he got tired of hiding. See that goes to show you (YOU CAN RUN, BUT YOU CAN'T HIDE). Boy pay them damn taxes and keep it moving.
@Ree Ree & Scarlett
I just saw his myspace page......y'all can have him...LOL just kidding
@Smitty, u alittle cutie, looking like Chris breezy. u only 20(if i read that right) wow. U can't even buy me a drink....yeah y'all can have him.....LMBAO

Let me find out Martha Stewart got more gangsta in her than Wesley! Stamp an H to yo chest and handle it! Put all that kung fu/kung pao mess to good use. You do the crime do the damn time! Or...pay the back taxes owed.
what's really good with these so called celebrity "pals" that go straight to mto to air out people's dirty laundry? it ain't right y'all! i feel bad for wesley he really should come out with a blade sequel! people really seem to like that sh*t!
I don't feel bad for that son of b!tch i remember what he said about black folks especially black women fuk wesley snipe cause this black woman can care less if they lock his ass up and throw away the key. Why that white woman you wit aint keep your black a$$ on track since she was so damn superior. you can mess wit the white man women but you mess wit they money and it's a wrap maybe you can really try robbing the money train b!tch.
i bet mto staff madddd as hell this 21 yr old dude has came and took their fire about their
"MAJOR HEADLINE NEWS" and turned it into a blog on him, having people log in just to type sumthin
about him...That's sad MTO...just sad (@ smitty, do ya thang)
Seems like being a celebrity realls messes up your thought process. Everybody has to pay taxes WES! (pause) YES, EVEN YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And now because you thought you didn't, Uncle Sam has come to lay the smackdown, which is the same thing dem boyz gon' do to you once you "HIT" prison. So In other words: PAY UP OR GAY UP...it's that simple.
SOLDIERS are overseas dying everyday fighting for our FREEDOM, and this man is tryna die over some damn taxes...SMH!!!
Real news please...
Who wouldn't be a little depressed going through what he's going through?
...but suicidal? I think that's a stretch...just b/c he spent a little time alone? Come on now - get real...
And another thing that so-called conversation about they can't take him to jail "if he's not alive" was taken out of context - we don't know what was said b-4 or after that - so it's really irrelevant..
"SOLDIERS are overseas dying everyday fighting for our FREEDOM, and this man is tryna die over some damn taxes...SMH!!!
Real news please..."
Now that's real talk. Sorry but I don't feel a inch of sympathy for his punk ass, and won't even blink twice if his silly ass is dumb enough to kill himself over something so trivial compared to people dying all over the world through war, genocide, etc.
But no one can be surprised with his self-hatred ass. He's already proven to be a weak ass human being.
@smitty: It's funny that you mention icecream. I was on break about 45 min ago and I was eating a toasted almond bar. Being that I chill with some of the maintenance guys on breaks, they were watching my EVERY lick!! Just imagine the things I could do for you!!
@Scarlett: That's just a little something for Smitty to think about when he's in Jamaica with you. He won't be able to wait to get back to the states for me! lol
Now mzsouthernprincess: That's not nice. I was gonna let you know that I checked your myspace last night when I got home and I thought you and your baby were cute. BUT NOW, Since you talking about stealing my man, forget about it!!!
PEOPLE IN CRAZY MONEY PROBLEMS THINK LIFE IS OVER AND THEY NEED TO SUCK IT UP AND DEAL WITH IT. THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE IN MUCH WORST SITUATIONS THAN HIM, LIKE PEOPLE BATTLING ILLNESSES THERE ARE NO CURE FOR AND IM PRETTY SURE THEY WOULD RATHER BE IN HIS POSITION THAN IN THE POSITION THEIR IN NOW. HE NEED TO HANDLE HIS HANDLE AND WORK HIS ASS OF TO PAY OFF DAT DAMN DEBT. IM NOT RICH AND I HATE PAYING TAXES BUT I PAY THEM, I DONT KNOW WHY RICH PEOPLE DONT PAY THEIR DAMN TAXES IT MAKES NO SENSE. JUST PAY DA DAMN TAXES OR WHEN THEY CAUGHT IT ITS GONNA BE EVEN MORE TO PAY.
@smitty254 Round two...I really thought you were going to fall back but I see you really want me to air out your dirty laundry, and I mean that literally!!! Licked your finder nails and other things huh? Boo all I was able to find on you the other night were the rolls of fat!!!!Ladies don't let the pics. fool you. Clothing does a lot for people...Just ask Smitty254 :)
Not to be changing the subject....but I'll bet Wesley wasn't worried or nervous when he slapped Halle Berry so hard she went permanently DEAF in one ear. If he wants to be White so bad, he should play by their rules.....but as Stevie Wonder once sang: You might have the cash, but you cannot cash in your face!!! In other words, when you go to jail Wesley...don't bother go into a fetal position crying for yo Mama - THAT DOESN'T WORK FOR BLACK FOLKS...Even those who think they're not.
KARMA IS A BIT@H!!!
LAUGHING.........LAUGHING........LAUGHING..........LAUGHING.........LAUGHING.....LAUGHING AGAIN.....REALLY LAUGHING......
YALL TALKING ABOUT, "PAY THE MONEY", IF HE HAD THE MONEY DO YOU THINK HE WOULD BE IN A HOTEL ROOM LOOKING AT WALL PAPER, THINK PEOPLE, DAMN!
Ok, I hate to sound stank, but damn - as white as his teeth are, shouldn't WE be the ones wearing the dark shades? Oh, and if he had the money to pay, he wouldn't be talking suicide. But really, going broke is better than being dead - he can always make another movie, and be back on top. But he has to be alive to do it.
He's is ph*cked. He can't make back the money they want him to pay. I think his movie career is just about done. I don't feel sorry for any rich person who decides that they don't need to pay taxes. He knew what he was doing. Prison and brokeness. Damn, that's some sh*t.
And beating Halle Berry is not winning him any sympathy from me. I am not a fan of hers, but that sh*t is messed up. Wesley made his made bed. Have a good night Wesley.
Why kill yourself now. If it was away to get out of paying taxes wouldn't we all do it. And I hope he isn't trying to act like he didn't know cause that would be crap. I am a young college student and I have been paying takes since I had my first job.
f*ck Wesley and all of the rich people and celebs that try to get over on their taxes..they always think theyre above the law and try to get around it..its not enough that they live the glamorous life and dont have to struggle like us regular people..but now they want to get away with abiding the laws? f*ck no! Marc Anthony just tried that sh*t and he was so shook about going to prison, he paid that 2 million dollars ASAP..they think they can mess around and cheat the system..and a lot of them get away with it..but it ALWAYS comes back to bite them in the azz..Ron Isley-whats good homie?! Mr Big and so big in jail huh?
I mean I hope the suicidal part is not true, but just pay your taxes already dayum!!! We all have to, you're not the only one. Just b/c your checks carry more zeros and commas does NOT make you exempt from legal responsibilities. Oh, and it'll prob. help if you have better accountants also.
Colt 45!...LMAO!...That ni**a got the OLD English smile!...He got the Boones Farm & 211 Steel Reserve look going down!...Hot link azz eating Ni**a!...LMAO!...Wesley Pipes Ni**a!...LMAO!...This cat kills me, oops, I mean himself...Wesley should just chill out and get him a asian woman, a 211, a box of hot links, some Rick Ross blow, and have fun...Life is short, everybody should just relax and chill...Stop stressing over bills and nonsense, bills never go away, so chill...Trick or Die!
