Lionel Richie Slapped with $1.1M Tax Bill
There is but one sure thing any American would not want to say, “Hello, is it me you’re looking for” to — the IRS or the Internal Revenue Service.
Unfortunately for legendary singer Lionel Richie, the IRS is indeed saying ‘hello’ to him and is definitely looking into his assets to satisfy his whopping $1.1 tax bill.
According to TMZ.com, the soul singer, who resides in Los Angeles, has been hit with a lien – an official claim against his property – for the payment of his unpaid taxes which now totals a huge $1,130,609.
If his back taxes are left unpaid, the American government could repossess Richie’s property to clear the debt and the singer and his family could be left without a home.
The funny thing is that according to legal documents, Richie is reportedly worth $200 million, having racked up a huge number of hits over the years, including Hello, All Night Long, Dancing on the Ceiling and Easy Like Sunday Morning.Get free updates directly to your e-mail from Showbiz Renegade.
