Uh-oh, Shelby Bryan
— Anna Wintour's longtime man-friend since 1999 — is in a bit of a pickle with the IRS.
According to a report
in the Telegraph
, the 66-year-old banker-turned-businessman owes the government a lot
of dough in back taxes, $1.2 million to be exact. (That's, like, nearly 230 classic quilted Chanel
2.55 handbags, you guys.)
Bryan's whopping debt to Uncle Sam happened after a stock arrangement investors once used to delay paying taxes was "unraveled." And unfortunately for Wintour's beau, the arrangement was banned back in 1997, leaving him to now pay the sum all at once.
A suggestion: maybe Wintour should pull a Kim Kardashian
and put her wardrobe up on eBay. You know she's probably got, oh, 20 or so pieces that would add up to a cool mil — we bet she's only worn them once and never will again anyway, right? Nah.
