The Internal Revenue Service has filed a tax lien for nearly $500,000 against singer Robin Thicke and his wife, actress Paula Patton, who is currently starring in “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.”

The IRS reportedly filed a tax lien against the couple for $492,583 in Los Angeles, according to the Detroit News. A representative for the couple told the newspaper last Friday that they were unaware of the tax lien and would take care of it immediately.
