Tax Troubles: Ed ‘Jean Luc’ Kleefield’s Madam Tong’s Is Seized


Last week, after Ed Jean Luc Kleefield told us he was pretty upbeat about his Hamptons empire, we werent surprised to see the mans detractors rip into him in the comments. Nor were we altogether shocked to hear from "Page Six" this morning that Madame Tongs has been padlocked for nonpayment of taxes. An article in the Southampton Press has been removed from its website for whatever reason, but the summary at Curbed Hamptons indicates Kleefield was surprised by the closing and plans to pay back the taxes immediately.
