    Christie Brinkley may be an eternally youthful Cover Girl, a Broadway star and worth about $80 million, but that doesn’t mean she can escape the long arm of the I.R.S.!

    The Detroit News reports that the 57-year-old beauty was hit with a $531,720 tax bill on her $30 million, century-old estate in Bridgehampton, N.Y. on Nov. 21.

    Before getting slapped with a hefty tax lien from Uncle Sam, things were going well for the “Uptown Girl.”

    Brinkley wowed Broadway audiences with her turn as Roxie Hart in the long-running musical, “Chicago,” earlier this year. Brinkley also hoofed for British audiences for a four-week run in London’s West End last summer.

    “I’ve been a boxing photographer for Don King, I’ve traveled with a rock band, climbed the Himalayas with my son and chanted with the monks under the stars. I’ve been a cutting-horse champion and a delegate for the 1st Congressional District of New York,” Brinkley said during her debut from the Broadway stage last April. “I love to fill my life with adventures, and this is my Broadway adventure!”

    Now she can add tax delinquent to her list of accomplishments.
