Christie Brinkley claims that her tax debt was a result of an error. The Internal Revenue Service has, on November 21, filed a tax lien against the former Sports Illustrated model, claiming that she owes the government $531,000 in back taxes. On Monday, December 5, she issued a statement in relation to the tax debt issue.

"I consider myself very lucky to have been employed since I was 17 years old," the 57-year-old supermodel said in the statement released via E! News. "I have never had an issue with the IRS or any tax liens in the past and I have dedicated my time to giving back as much and as often as possible."

"I was surprised to learn of the tax lien filing and took immediate steps to rectify this matter, which for most people is a private matter. I discovered the tax lien was indeed the result of an error," she continued on before promising that her taxes will be paid in full by Wednesday, December 7. She added, "I expect the tax lien to be released immediately thereafter."

In conclusion, the former wife of musician Billy Joel stated, "I regret not paying more attention to my accounting, but I have been, and remain focused on my whole family as both my parents navigate serious health issues. I am grateful for the outpouring of understanding and support I have received."

The tax lien was filed on Christie's mansion in Bridgehampton on New York's Long Island. The model, who made her stage debut playing Roxie Hart in the long-running Broadway rival of "Chicago" in April, is reportedly worth an estimated $80 million, mostly from real estate holdings in the Hamptons.
