Actor Ving Rhames has been hit with a lawsuit from U.S. tax officials after allegedly running up debts of almost $500,000 (£312,500).
The Pulp Fiction star and his wife, Deborah, are accused of failing to keep up with their taxes, and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) agents have taken their case to a court in Los Angeles in a bid to recoup $491,588 (£307,242).
IRS officials have filed tax lien documents against Rhames for allegedly missing payments in 2007, according to TMZ.com.
