On the heels of an amazing wedding in New Orleans, Solange Knowles was hit with a tax bill of more than $55,000 by the state of California. The taxes date to 2010 and 2012, and according to TMZ, the lien was filed in November, just three days after her wedding.

Solange may not be the only one in the family with a financial challenge. Last week Matthew Knowles, the singer’s father, tried to earn a few extra bucks the old-fashioned way: with a garage sale. Items included Beyoncé outfits, concert memorabilia and Solange CDs.


Maybe Solange and her father should think about asking Beyoncé and her husband, Jay Z, for a loan, since their net worth is close to $1 billion, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
