Lionel Richie Owes $1.1 Million in Taxes
Lionel Richie reportedly owes over $1.1 million in unpaid taxes. 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 debt which totals $1,130,609, according to TMZ.com.
The musician has racked up a huge number of hits over the years, including "Hello," "Dancing On The Ceiling" and "Easy Like Sunday Morning," and according to legal documents he is worth a reputed $200 million.
If Lionel - who recently released a duets album, Tuskegee, featuring new versions of his greatest hits - fails to pay the bill then the American government could repossess his property to clear the debt. His representative is yet to comment on the claims.
The 62-year-old star - the father of Nicole Richie - will next appear alongside Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Nettles and Robin Thicke as judges on new TV show Duets.
