Afrojack the tax fraudster? The Dutch government is investigating
Let Afrojack‘s current plight serve as a reminder to be careful about choosing a reliable tax adviser — especially while wealthy.
Per Dutch media, dance superstar Afrojack has been entangled in a tax fraud case brought on by his financial adviser, Frank B. The producer had allegedly been using shell companies and havens like Cyprus to avoid taxation over the years, per the case opened by the FIOD, Holland’s version of the IRS. They began investigating those around him — most notably, his former tour manager Hugo Langras — in May. Langras offered nothing else to the media aside from the fact that his home had been searched.
A statement from Afrojack’s team expresses the artist’s personal shock and denial of the charges. He personally has nothing to hide, they’ve advised, and are confident that he will come of out this cleanly.
Frank B. was called “the tax specialist for the stars” in the Netherlands, overseeing the finances of not just Afrojack, but also Tiësto, Patricia Paay, and more. Time will tell if more familiar names are implicated in Frank’s ongoing scandals.
