Solange Knowles, Beyonce’s sister, owes over $55,000 in back taxes to the state of California. The back taxes are owed from the years 2010 to 2012. According to the latest report by TMZ, the tax lien was filed against Solange in November of this year, only three days after she married her husband, Alan Ferguson, in an elegant ceremony in New Orleans.
Here’s is how Us Magazine described the nuptials.
“It was a beautiful event. Solange looked gorgeous and Jay and Beyonce and Blue Ivy were the perfect little family there supporting her sister. The weekend was exactly what Solange wanted, friends and family in her favorite town. It was all about the fashion, it was all about the look and the music, because that’s important to her. Alan’s a great man and has made her very happy.”
Solange’s tax problems are in direct contrast to the lavish life that her sister, Beyonce, lives. Beyonce’s sister has made a number of headlines this year, with the most scandalous one involving an elevator fight with brother-in-law Jay Z. The footage was captured on video and made public for all the world to see — leading to speculation that Beyonce was having major problems with Jay Z.
Solange’s infamous Jay Z elevator fight video was sort of the first inkling that Beyonce’s world was not as perfect as it seemed.
Solange is not the only one in the family that might be having money issues. It was recently reported that her father, Matthew Knowles, was selling many of their personal items for money. The speculation is that the monies collected will help Beyonce and Solange’s father pay off some of the debts he owes resulting from his troubles — paternity and child support suits — with all of his baby mamas.
Solange’s parents divorced when Tina Knowles discovered that her longtime hubby cheated on her and impregnated a woman in 2009. And in 2011, Beyonce fired her dad as her manager. About the business break-up, Matthew Knowles stated the following, according to the Huffington Post.
“It was hard for me to let her go — it was hard for both of us to let each other go. And let’s be clear on that. She didn’t let me go, we both let each other go. That’s a big difference.”
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Solange Knowles has a net worth of only $5 million dollars. In 2011, Beyonce’s net worth was estimated to be $450 million dollars, but when combined with her husband, Jay Z, the Hollywood power couple’s net worth is estimated at $1 billion.
