Just Like Daddy: Prince Fielder Owes IRS $400,000

It’s been well documented how Cecil Fielder completely blew tens of millions of dollars after retiring from baseball, and now his (estranged) son is picking up the money mismanagement mantle slack to keep us all entertained.

The DETROIT NEWS reports today that Prince Fielderowes $409,149 in federal income taxes. More:

The IRS filed a $409,149 lien against Prince on Oct. 6, 2005, for unpaid income taxes. According to the lien, which you can see here, Prince owes the money from 2003, the year after he signed his first contract and received the $2.4 million signing bonus.

Prince is repped by Scott Boras, who did not return “multiple” (setting up ARod’s shoeshine box?) calls from the press. If anyone probably deserves blame on this, it’s Boras. Especially considering Cecil’s money troubles.

Not mentioned in the D-N piece is the fact that late last year Prince was also sued by a “Georgia financial company” over some of Daddy’s debts!

On the bright side, Prince has already dialed down his formerly expensive dining habits, so he won’t have to worry about this.
