Solange Knowles Clarifies Tax Lien Report

Solange Knowles

Solange Knowles was hit with a $55,000 tax lien from the state of California after she reportedly failed to pay her taxes from 2010-2012. The news suggested that the 28-year-old singer, who recently married her long-time beau Alan Ferguson, is having financial difficulties, but her rep tells E! News that it was all just a misunderstanding.

“The lien is in process of being removed as there was simply confusion on whether Solange was a California resident. We expect this to come to a swift close,” her rep says.

The lien was filed just three days after Solange exchanged vows in a beautiful ceremony in New Orleans. It seems that she was unaware of the lien based on her response to the news on Twitter.

“Well thanks for letting me know , lol. Sh**********t. (Pronounced *She-it),” the newlywed wrote. She later gave a sarcastic shout-out to the media, “Good looking out yo! Lol. (No for reallys though:).”

Luckily, the singer is on top of things, and this will soon be old news because the problem is being taken care of now.

“Solange wasn’t too worried,” a source told E! News. “She’s on top of stuff and has always been financially responsible.”
