Things don't look good for him...

By the way, are German tax laws really that tough? I think we should adopt something like that over here. Though I think we should lower taxes, I don't think anyone should get away with not paying them...

Apparently he spent all of his fortune on fancy silk shirts.
What's another word for thesaurus?

Yes, German tax laws are very strict. The father of Steffi Graf has already been in jail because of tax offences.

But it's really a hard time for poor "Bobele", first all the things with his ex-wife and the thing with the russian model, now taxes...oh and his strange AOL ad's "Bin ich schon drin? Das is ja einfach" (Am I in already ? That is really easy!) - I think you can imagine what jokes are made about these ad's  Laugh out loud

Some German sports stars even move to tax-friendly countries because a Michael Schumacher thinks it isn't ok if his mother country takes away some of his 150 Mio € a year...
