Sigel appeared in U.S. District Court to admit that from 2003 through 2005 he didn’t pay what the government says was some $348,000 on $1 million of taxable income.

Sigel, 37, said little during the hearing before U.S. District Court Judge Jan E. Dubois. His attorney, Fortunato Perri Jr., said he will contest the government’s calculation of taxes owed at Sigel’s sentencing hearing.

Sigel faces up to three years in jail. His guilty plea was expected, as he had previously waived indictment on the charges.

“She dishonored my mother, you don’t do shit like that…That was a conversation between my mother and her, before the wedding…That’s the mother, future daughter by marriage conversation…She was suppose to wear that to the grave. No one was suppose to know about that conversation. I didn’t even know about that conversation. But the world knew about it. You know why? Because she she put it in Sister 2 Sister magazine and every other interview…Only thing I said is honor thy mother, you can do what you need to do talk about me… But don’t disrespect my mother on national T.V. that’s all it was about. I walked away after that.”

“The knot was upset, I wasn’t really upset the knot was upset. They are going to put the knot, back on their. They are going to make the knot famous. I didn’t really care about the pinata…It was like a damn blood sacrifice on that damn thing if you ask me. It is what it is. Through it all ,I’m still the topic of discussion Yo… All this shit looked staged.She need to come clean with it. Come straight up.You can’t hurt me. That shit don’t hurt me.”

On throwing the martini in Jennifer’s face:

“Let’s keep it one hundred. She wants sympathy from the world, everybody knows this Ya dig… I mean yeah, the drink was aggressive. The thing is the action, my action. Everybody in the world might be like why, damn why you do that. But, listen I don’t apologize for the reaction..Ya dig…All the world can kiss my ass… I don’t really care about that. I know what’s going on in my life… My name is the name being dragged around. Remember the chick is still married…And she is doing some reckless shit on T.V.”
