Supermodel Vows to Pay $530K in Back Taxes… by Tomorrow
You may want to wait 24 hours before you count Christie Brinkley among those deplorable tax-evading celebrities. The former Sports Illustrated model got slapped with a $530K delinquent tax bill from the IRS last week, but rather than hem and haw about the woes of keeping track of so... much... money ($80 million-ish, to be exact... ish), Brinkley made a promise, today, December 6, to pay her taxes “in full by December 7,” reports Page Six.
Of this year? Well, OK then. Guess there’s nothing left to say but, SHOW ME THE MONEY! (Isn’t that the official tagline of the IRS?) Blaming the back taxes calamity on an accounting “error,” the ex-wife of Billy Joel hopes to put the whole ordeal behind her ASASSTC (as soon as she signs the check).
