A representative of the couple said that the celebrity couple did not know about the tax bills until recently.
Singer Robin Thicke and his actress wife Paula Patton are hit with tax problems. The IRS revealed that the "Lost Without You" singer and the "Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol" star owed them a whooping $492,583 for their mansion in Los Angeles, California.
According to the The Detroit News, a tax lien was filed by the fed on December 28 with the Los Angeles County Recorder of Deeds. The address on the tax lien is a Post Office box in Santa Monica, Calif.
A representative of the couple has clarified the confusion, saying they were not aware of the tax bill until Friday, January 13. "They were just made aware of the issue and it is being taken care of immediately," the rep said in a statement to the website.
