Lionel Richie Owes IRS Over $1 Million

133

Lionel Richie is the latest superstar to be summoned by the federal government for money owed. According to TMZ, court documents reveal that the “Easy” hitmaker owes the IRS $1,130,609.11 for the 2010 tax year.

This may be no burden for Richie thought. He is said to be worth around $200 million, so taking care of an IRS lien should be no problem.

Along with a recurring role on “The Voice” as one of the mentors this season, Richie has a permanent income stream due to his diverse and vast music catalog.

The R&B veteran released his latest album, ‘Tuskegee,’ this past March (2012), featuring 13 duets of his biggest hits. He also signed on for a permanent judge position in a new singing competition show called “Duets”.
