The bad news continues for Dolce & Gabbana. Earlier this morning, we learned that fashion house was being sued by actor Peter Fonda over the use of images from Easy Rider without Fonda's permission. But now, it turns out there may no longer be a D&G, that is if they have to pay the €343 million (about $454 million) fine they've acquired for tax evasion. 

"We will close," said Domenico Dolce. "What do you want us to do? We will close. We will not be able to deal with it. It's impossible."

"If we deserved the sentence, there would be nothing to say," added Stefano Gabbana. "But we do not deserve it, and so unfortunately we would have to close."

How's Riff Raff supposed to "fuck with hos who only rock Dolce & Gabbana" then?

Gabbana tweeted the link to the Vogue UK article about the possible closure this morning, though, surprisingly, without any harsh words in Italian. 

First the tax evasion, followed by a protest, then another lawsuit, and now this. D&G really can't catch a break.
