Ringo Moves To Monte Carlo To Avoid Tax Laws

Former BEATLE RINGO STARR has set up a permanent home in Monte Carlo so he can avoid tax laws in Britain and Los Angeles.

The rocker still has homes in England and California but he chooses to live in Monte Carlo, Monaco because he gets to make more royalties money there.

He says, "I live in Monte Carlo with residences in England and LA. I've had a house here in LA since 1975 and I love LA. I love America but I love LA."

Starr admits he has always fought against paying crippling tax bills: "It's overrated. I want to do the WILLIE NELSON thing - you just don't pay until they catch you and then you do some shows somewhere and it's all forgiven."
