    Lionel Richie has been hit with a $1 million tax bill. Ouch. Sort of. Richie has buckets of dough, so it's likely he can easily pay down this debt without it setting him back in any sort of financial way.

    TMZ reports the debt stems back to 2010.

    With Richie's worth an estimated $200 million, he should have no problem cutting that check, penalties included.

    What do you think of celebrity tax woes, which appear to be increasingly common?
