UH OH: Paula Patton & Robin Thicke Owe Almost $500K In Back Taxes

Now this sounds like a mission impossible.  Singer Robin Thicke and his actress wife, Paula Patton, owe Uncle Sam some serious dough in back taxes.  All to the tune of half a million dollars.  Deets inside...

Paula's new Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol movie may have raked in $188M and counting at the box office, but maybe she hasn't received her cut of her salary.  Because she and her crooner hubby are seriously behind on their taxes.

According to the Detroit News (who has become infamous for outing folks and their tax issues), the IRS filed a $492,583 tax lien against Paula Patton and Robin Thicke on Dec. 28 with the Los Angeles County Recorder of Deeds.

The address on file is a P.O. Box, but the Hollywood couple does have a sizable home in Santa Monica.

Paula also cashed in on her recent box office hits Jumping The Broom and Precious.  While Robin just released his fifth studio album, Love After War, last month.

And it doesn't appear that they deliberately avoided paying the taxes.  Their rep said this weekend:

“They were just made aware of the issue and it is being taken care of immediately."

Somebody on their accounting team is getting fired...

Is that why they went from a

Is that why they went from a nice quiet minding their own business couple to a sex selling, talking about their personal bedroom situation couple? Are they now trying to profit off of sex selling because they owe way too much, and what the hell were they doing to end up owing so much, neither one of them have ever been big enough talents to be going around living like Diddy and Trump, so WTH, were they using their own money to fund Robin's projects, did Paula have to pay to be in just wright, if so she need to sue for a refund.

I just received my tax bill, this is not news. If you do not pay taxes during the year i.e. due to working for yourself, you owe taxes at this time... Let's not get ridic with the speculation, I'm sure them and the Simmons sisters pay their bills... I just received mine (tax bill) and will be paying it come January 20th.

@Tasha -- re: "Paula also

@Tasha -- re: "Paula also cashed in on her recent box office hits Jumping The Broom and Precious." While I hadn't done any research on "Precious", I can say with ALL certainty that "Jumping The Broom" LOST MONEY..!! So if Paula Patton's compensation for that film was a percentage of the Box Office returns - she'd have gotten NOTHING. "Jumping The Broom" LOST MONEY! Here's the proof: From deadline(dotcom): "Expected losers are TriStar’s Jumping The Broom ($63.4 million vs costs of $66.9 million)" http://www.deadline.com/2011/06/kagan-pirates-hangover-and-bridesmaids-l... Oh, BTW, "Colombiana" (as I'd past said) also LOST MONEY: http://www.deadline.com/2011/09/kagan-the-help-is-the-most-profitable-fi... X,Y,"and Z"

I'm sure both Robin and Paula

I'm sure both Robin and Paula will have no issues making this back since their careers are in a good place right now. No doubt they turned their financial matters over to an accountant which is always an iffy thing to do. Gorgeous couple.

That's not bad news, the good

That's not bad news, the good news is that you made enough money to owe a half-a-million dollars in taxes. The bad news is that many people on this blog don't even make enough to owe $100 in taxes. What's the big deal, that is rich people problem, you make millions you owe a lot of taxes?

Since you know so many

Since you know so many people's salaries here, list a few names genius (YOU know NOTHING !!!!!) YOU ass-clown. They owe BACK-TAXES <------ which is from years past (that's not something you strive to do. that means they did'nt report income or their accountant made mistakes or is stealing MONEY) Go sit down DUMBASS

I don't know why race is a

I don't know why race is a issue.No one of any race can make you look bad unless you are ignorant enough to let them. To the negative ignorant white people for you to come to this sight and make negatvie statements mean you are carrying out negativity that your ancestors started divide and conquer and ,hate whether it be self hate from black or the other colored races who see black in them. In the bible it says you will reap what you sow if you do not believe in the bible in life people call it karma! WHy do you think our families suffer even though they are rich or have the better jobs. YOu think its a secret its not. Just like you divided the races and conquered your famillies are divided. LIsten if you wan to stop this stop the set up of a superior color w are all human. Too the people of color off all races as long as we hold grudges, have self hate, attack and take out your pain on others instead of gaining knowledge, education , and wisdom you will t move forward . Too move forward forgive ,pray don't hold grudges even when you are reminded by ignorant people. To have the most out of life you have to put out positive energy to recieve it ! It is the law of physics. YOU CAN NOT GET ORANGES OUT OF LIFE IF YOU INVESTED APPLES. Do better AND BE BETTER VERY day!!!!! (Paula patton is mixed half black she says she is black because white america treated (reminded) that she wasnt black)

@Black Barbie re: 3:12 pm -- There's no need for anger, resentment nor hostility. My goal was not to unburden, relive nor disabuse you of any beliefs that "all because he is white makes him right" notions of "the most desired in men/husbands/significant others". But that link, and the info contained, was done and reported on/by a "PER CAPITA" basis.. (sigh.. even a white man would've known that..) Barbie, do you know the fastest growing demographic in the U.S. Federal Prison population? (hint?) Well, it's NOT black men! X,Y,"and Z"
X,Y,&quot;and Z&quot;'s picture

The fastest growing

The fastest growing population in federal prisons happens to be white men. However, that's because white men commit white collar crimes more often than all other races. Money laundering, ponzi schemes etc. That doesn't change the fact that blacks and Hispanics are the majority populations in prison PERIOD! DON'T JUST SPEW OUT RANDOM FACTS AND PROCLAIM TO BE INTELLIGENT. You are probably just a angry black garbage man. Go get a real education and stop reading random studies and ignorant propaganda and coming on boots to spread it and pretend to be enlightened. Broke ass bottom-dwellers!

@Anonymous re:4:05 pm -- Why

@Anonymous re:4:05 pm -- Why the bitterness..?? ..Oh, FYI, the "fastest growing population in the Federal Prison System" happens to be BLACK WOMEN, then white men: http://www.aclu.org/womens-rights/words-prison-did-you-know ..And this growing trend (white male incarceration rates) arose NOT from "White Collar Crimes", but with the dramatic increase in 'Crystal Meth' arrests, conviction, now reflected in the burgeoning aforementioned Federal Prison population demographic..!! ..But DON'T take my word for it, read for yourself - http://www.bop.gov/news/quick.jsp: Inmates By Race: White: 127,586 (59.0 %) Black: 81,213 (37.5 %) Native American: 4,005 (1.9 %) Asian: 3,557 (1.6 %) Ethnicity Hispanic: 74,931 (34.6 %) Types of Offenses: Drug Offenses: 97,416 (49.3 %) Weapons, Explosives, Arson: 30,722 (15.5 %) Immigration: 23,964 (12.1 %) Robbery: 8,313 (4.2 %) Burglary, Larceny, Property Offenses: 7,249 (3.7 %) Extortion, Fraud, Bribery: 10,632 (5.4 %) Homicide, Aggravated Assault, and Kidnapping Offenses: 5,584 (2.8 %) Miscellaneous: 1,723 (0.9 %) Sex Offenses: 10,039 (5.1 %) Banking and Insurance, Counterfeit, Embezzlement: 818 (0.4 %) Courts or Corrections: 635 (0.3 %) Continuing Criminal Enterprise: 515 (0.3 %) National Security: 94 (0.0 %) Again: On a purely "outright numbers" percentage (NOT PER CAPITA) Whites comprise 59% of the Federal Prison population. And, of the crimes that placed them behind bars: 49.3% - Drugs 0.4% - Banking and Insurance, Counterfeit, Embezzlement. <-- LESS-THAN 1%..!!!!

Sorry about the name calling.

Sorry about the name calling. You are always ranting on here. A set of Stats can be used in MANY ways to prove or shoot down a theory (and you know that). My guess is that the Hispanic population's numbers are increasing re: incarceration. White's as well b/c some of these people are going without jobs for the 1st time in a down economy and are FREAKING OUT due to long term unemployment (however, NO excuses. just my theory)

this is why elizabeth taylor

this is why elizabeth taylor and richard burton moved around the world all the time - avoiding taxes in the us and uk. they stayed just long enough in each country to avoid paying the taxes of residents. many other stars should take note since they don't want to keep an eye on tax payments.

If you're a US citizen you have to pay tax to the US government no matter where you live as long as you have an income by law you're suppose to pay taxes . so it doesn't matter moving around the world they still have to pay the US government taxes

You guys need to realize that celebrities don't have taxes taken out of their checks like normal working folks. They get slapped with a bill every year because the IRS legally does not have the right to deduct it from their earned royalties. This is nothing new.
