The IRS is “Just Getting Warmed UUUPPPP” with Al Pacino
Here’s a star you don’t commonly see in the grapevine talk of entertainment media outlets. Al Pacino, reportedly owes the IRS 188,000 dollars in back taxes for 2008 and 2009. This heavyweight actor, who became well known in movies like The Godfather and Scarface, allegedly failed to pay his taxes for those years because of his business manager, Kenneth Starr. Starr was sentenced last week by a Manhattan court to seven and a half years in prison for a $33 million Ponzi scheme. The court heard that he used part of the money scammed from stars — including Pacino, Uma Thurman and Lauren Bacall — to pay for his younger ex-stripper wife’s lavish lifestyle, the New York Post reported. Pacino reported that he now has new business mangers and they are now working to resolve the problem. If I were Starr, I would find a place to lay low for a while because Pacino doesn’t want to kill anyone, just his enemies. Starr needs to realize that in order to survive in this world, first you get the money, then the power, then the women. It wouldn’t shock me if Pacino were to walk up to Starr and introduce him to his little friend. On the other hand, Pacino could cut him some slack because it was nothing personal, it was simply business. The thing about finances is that it’s all a gamble and on any given Sunday you’re gonna win or you’re gonna lose. The point is — can you win or lose like a man? Time will tell if forgiveness is in order. What do you think? Will he forget about it? Or will he make him an offer he can’t refuse? How many more Pacino lines do you think I can cram into this? …………..Hoo AH!
