68-year-old Academy Award winner director Martin Scorsese is in yet another financial trouble. After being involved in a series of tax demands and debt issues over a long time, Scorsese has found himself with a tax debt of almost $3 million. According to the New York Post, The Goodfellas director had managed to clear off all his IRS debts but was handed a bill for $2.85 million last month. It is speculated that his debts stem from his dealings with Starr who was recently jailed in connection to celebrity embezzlement scam.
Scorsese’s rep Leslee Dart has meanwhile insisted that the currently slapped IRS lien is a mistake and his client owes no more money to the department.
