Rich, famous and tussling with the taxman
The star: This Brazilian beauty rules the modeling world, thanks to contracts with Dior, Versace, Victoria's Secret, Louis Vuitton and other famous brands. But most readers probably know her best for her romance with Leo DiCaprio and subsequent marriage (remove link) to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Her $45 million in earnings last year placed her 83rd on Forbes' 2012 World's Most Powerful Women list.
Amount owed: $72,003
What happened: The State of California reckons the supermodel came up a bit short on her 2009 taxes and filed a lien for that amount in Los Angeles County. Let's chalk it up to a very busy year for the Brady household, what with the December 2009 birth of their son Benjamin and Tom's $30 million signing bonus that brought his annual salary to $26.5 million, according to Celebrity Networth. Nice to know there's a breadwinner (remove link) in the family!
The outcome: Not to worry. With mad looks like hers, mad skills like his and a combined annual income to rival a Third World country, this golden couple doubtless will be good for the debt.
