NEW YORK (CBS/AP) The IRS has filed a $63,487 lien against supermodel Naomi Campbell.

The New York Post reports that according to tax watchdog Robert Snell, the lien was filed in July with the New York City Register's Office for taxes assessed in 2009.

A representative for the supermodel did not return the Post's request for a comment.

Campbell recently appeared at a Dutch courthouse to give evidence at the war crimes trial of former Liberian ruler Charles Taylor after the supermodel lost her battle to avoid testifying.

Campbell was questioned about claims made by actress Mia Farrow that Taylor gave the British model an uncut diamond after a dinner party hosted by Nelson Mandela in South Africa in 1997.

Prosecutors say if that's true, it's evidence that he received diamonds from Sierra Leone rebels in exchange for weapons during that country's 1992-2002 civil war.
