hogan210Paul Hogan’s been served with a detaining order for tax evasion just hours before he was about to bury his mother.

The Crocodile Dundee star, who lives in Los Angeles, flew back to his homeland on Friday following the death of his 101-year-old mother and was immediately ordered not to leave the country on account of the small matter of the £21.4 million in outstanding taxes he is believed to owe to the Australian Tax Office.

Hogan’s lawyer has decried the detaining order as “insensitive” as it came so soon to the death of Hogan’s mother.

The order could potentially strand him in Australia for years, thousands of miles from his wife and child in the States.
