The woman who claims that she “never hated a man enough to give him diamonds back” may have to change her mind when it comes to Bernie Madoff. Zsa Zsa Gabor claims to have lost between $7-$10 million as part of Madoff’s scheme, leaving her with some substantial tax woes.

The 92 year old actress has been liened by the Internal Revenue Service for $118,000 for the years 2001 and 2002; the lien has been filed against one of Gabor’s mansions in California. Gabor’s lawyer, Chris Fields, says that the tax bill is part of the fallout from the Madoff scheme.

Gabor’s husband (from her longest marriage – so far) German playboy Frederic von Anhalt intends to help Gabor work out a payment plan with the IRS. Anhalt has reportedly received millions of dollars by selling the Anhalt name by adopting, along with Zsa Zsa, several men. If that sounds a little bit crazy, remember that this is the same man that claimed to be the father of Anna Nicole Smith’s baby (yeah, that’s where you’ve heard the name before). Crazy is relative.
