Paul Hogan, the 70-year-old star of hit movie Crocodile Dundee, has been banned from leaving Australia until he settles a disputed tax bill. The actor, who lives in LA, was in Sydney to attend the funeral of his mother. On arrival, however, he was served with an Australian Taxation Office order that prevents him leaving the country until he settles the bill, reportedly for millions of dollars.

This follows a five year fight in Australian and American courts to investigate allegations that Hogan used offshore bank accounts to conceal his earnings. Hogan disputes this, and has never been charged with tax evasion.

Hogan’s lawyer Andrew Robinson told press that “These may not be the appropriate circumstances to effectively make Paul a prisoner of Australia.”

The news is equally as shocking for Hogan’s wife and Crocodile Dundee co-star Linda Kozlowski and their 12-year-old son, who are still in LA.
