Paul Hogan, who played Crocodile Dundee in the popular 80’s triliogy, has been banned from leaving his home country, Australia.
The 70-year-old lives in Los Angeles with his wife and son, but recently returned to Sydney to attend his mother’s funeral. Once he arrived, however, he was served with an Australian Taxation Office order which prevents him from leaving the country until he settles his multimillion dollar tax bill.
The order was “absolutely devastating” for Hogan’s wife, “Crocodile Dundee” co-star Linda Kozlowski, and their 12-year-old son Chance, both of whom remained in Los Angeles, Robinson said.
Australia has fought with Hogan in court over the last five years to investigate whether or not he used offshore bank accounts to conceal earnings the of his hit movies. Authorities claimed that Hogan owes taxes on more than $38 million dollars. Hogan denies any wrongdoing.
