Brinkley: I'll repay my back taxes

Veteran model and actress Christie Brinkley has vowed she will immediately repay the 531,000 US dollars (£339,800) she owes in back taxes.

New York's Daily News recently reported that the US Internal Revenue Service had filed a tax lien against the supermodel.

Christie said in a statement the lien was a "result of an error" and pledged it will be paid in full by Wednesday.

The star said she regrets not paying more attention to her accounting and said she had been focused on her parents, who are dealing with "serious health issues".

The 57-year-old was married to Billy Joel and appeared in his Uptown Girl video. She made her Broadway debut this year playing Roxie Hart in the musical Chicago.

Christie said she considers herself "lucky to have been employed" since she was 17 years old.
