Uncle Sam wants Christie Brinkley to pay up!
The IRS recently filed a tax lien against the former supermodel to the tune of $531,000 in unpaid back taxes.
A rep for Brinkley said the 57 year old was surprised by filing and "has instructed her team to resolve the matter immediately".
UPDATE: Christie Brinkley released the following statement late Monday afternoon:
"I consider myself very lucky to have been employed since I was 17 years old…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 the result of an error. My taxes will be paid in full by Wednesday, December 7th and I expect the tax lien to be released immediately thereafter. 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. "
As long as the IRS receives their money, we're sure all will be forgiven.
