Christie Brinkley owes $531K in taxes on NY home

It looks like supermodel Christie Brinkley is facing some financial trouble. The IRS has filed a lien on a mansion she owns.

The tax lien was filed Nov. 21 on a mansion in Bridgehampton on New York's Long Island, where she lives. Records show she owes $531,000 in back taxes.

A representative for Brinkley says she was surprised to learn about the lien and has instructed her team to resolve the matter immediately.

Brinkley was once married to Billy Joel. She made her Broadway debut this year playing Roxie Hart in the musical "Chicago."
