Lionel Richie Faces Massive Tax Bill


Lionel Richie owes the IRS, in a big way, to the tune of over a million dollars, $1,130,609.11 to be exact, a bill which he has to pay now or face further action from the government.

According to TMZ, Richie did not pay his income tax bill from 2010 and a lien has been reportedly issued.

Paying the hefty tax bill shouldn't be too tall of a task for Richie, who is reportedly worth over $200 million. He amassed his wealth through a string of hits from yesterday and today, including tracks off of Richie's recently released country-duet album Tuskagee, which currently sits at number four on the Billboard 200 chart.

Richie isn't the first superstar to have a run in with the IRS. The list includes actor Nicolas Cage, Wesley Snipes, Ja Rule and Willie Nelson.
