Facing a $1.5 million tax debt, Brian McKnight is ready to talk about the situation. While speaking with Huffington Post, McKnight opened up about his debt, and the ongoing lawsuit he has filed against his former accountant.

In the video clip, McKnight drops some knowledge and advice for other celebrities that could possibly end up in his situation, saying you have to watch every penny and what is going on.

“When you have business managers, when you have folks managing your money, it’s very important that you know where every single penny of yours, not just the dollars, is going,” he said. “And that those people are doing their diligence to make sure that you’re on time with the things that you need to be on time with. Because we basically all work just to pay taxes, let’s be real about that. Practically in my tax bracket. And when those things lapse, there can be some bad things that happen."
