Valentino Rossi faces tax evasion charges!


Rossi: "I don't want to hear a word of this..."

It seems this just isn't The Doctor's year. First, Casey Stoner has been giving him hell. And now Italian authorities are investigating Rossi for tax evasion. Rossi (who, as we earlier reported, is one of the highest earning sports stars in the world) is being investigated for undisclosed earnings amounting to about US$80 million which he is said to have earned between the years 2000 and 2004.

Not that Rossi is the first or the only MotoGP rider who's faced such an investigation. Fellow Italian, Loris Capirossi has also faced similar charges earlier.
