Conan O'Brien pays back taxes, avoids home auction


WESTERLY, R.I. (AP) -- A home owned by talk show host Conan O'Brien has been removed from a Rhode Island auction after he paid some back taxes on the property.

Town officials tell The Westerly Sun that O'Brien paid his $8,000 bill on Friday morning.

The property near the Westerly shore is valued at about $723,000. It was among several the town planned to auction Tuesday to settle delinquent tax bills.

O'Brien publicist Drew Shane issued a statement saying O'Brien had been unaware he owed back taxes. He blamed the problem on a clerical error that prevented the bill from reaching O'Brien's accountant in Los Angeles.

The 51-year-old O'Brien grew up in neighboring Massachusetts and graduated from Harvard.

One of the downsides to being rich and famous is that anytime anything like this happens you can be certain that a bunch of jealous idiots with nothing better to do will sit around and armchair analyze the situation with only a tiny fraction of the pertinent information given in a news blip. Here's an idea for you dimwits. Actually research something fully and then take a shot at actually making an educated comment. Until you do this all your doing is making idiotic noise.

I can't figure how something so important would be over sighted even without getting a bill. Guess that's what happens when you have other people hired to not take care of things.

I get a kick out of the right wing losers who are so jealous they show their limited intelligence by posting hate messages. Perhaps if they worked as hard and as much as they hated the other 50% of humanity they would be more successful.

This is a story about Conan O'Brien, for Christ's sakes! Do these lunatics just sit at their computers all day waiting for a chance to scream "Obama!"? Miami Heat loses NBA crown. Damn Obama! It's raining today. Damn Obama!
