Solange was recently hit with a tax lien, but she apparently had no idea about it until reports surfaced on Sunday.

TMZ reported the State of California is seeking to collect more than $55,000 in back taxes owed from 2010-2012. The paperwork was reportedly filed in November, just a few days after the singer wed. The news was picked up by multiple outlets, including Global Grind, which tweeted, “YIKES! Solange reportedly owes more than $55K in taxes.”

And that’s apparently how Solange found out about it. “Well thanks for letting me know, lol. Sh**********t. (Pronounced *She-it),” she tweeted. She then wrote to Global Grind directly, “Good looking out yo! Lol. (No for reallys though:)” We imagine most people wouldn’t want their personal financial information revealed online, but at least Solange has a sense of humor about it. Interestingly, Global Grind appears to have deleted both its tweet and the accompanying story.

Solange was similarly good-natured last month when fans asked her about having hives in her wedding photos. “Got em from turning up x100 during our second line. I was hot,wearing a cape, & happy as hell:),” she responded. As Gossip Cop reported, the star married Alan Ferguson in New Orleans, with Beyoncé, Jay Z, and more in attendance.
