This is really sad to hear.

You're going to still be on Team Coco after you hear how Conan O'Brien reacted to learning that he owed money on his family's home in Rhode Island!
According to a recent report, Conan owed $8,000 on a house listed in his parents' names located near Westerly Shore, and he only paid it off just before it went on auction! Yikes!
Here's what Conan said in a recent statement:
"As soon as I was made aware that the tax bill on my parents' house was being mailed to the wrong address, I paid the bill immediately. The problem has been corrected. I am grateful to the reporter at the Westerly Sun who spotted this error and notified me."
Well, phew! Crisis averted! It was all just a mail error!
What's that? The United States Postal service messed up? Unheard of!
According to another source, Conan received no notice of his bill:
"As soon as he was made aware, he paid the bill in full."
Thankfully Conan paid the outstanding $8,000 on Friday, and the house was removed from auction! Close call!
