Kelly Rowland is the latest inductee to the club of celebrities in tax trouble, as word has it that she owes Uncle Sam nearly $100,000.

According to the Detroit News, the ‘Bills, Bills, Bills’ singer owes $98,634 in delinquent tax payments prompting the government to file a lien against her on Nov. 8 with the New York City Register. In a year that has been riddled with tax trouble from more than a few prominent figures in the music industry, Rowland’s financial woes find her in the company of Snoop Dogg, Toni Braxton and Omarion just to name a few.

Rowland, 29, is one-third of the top selling girl group Destiny’s Child. Since the group dismantled, she and fellow member Michelle Williams have had trouble matching the solo success achieved by lead singer Beyonce. Rowland has released a couple of solo albums, but to lukewarm success.

Last year the Grammy winner announced that she was cutting business ties with longtime manager, and Beyonce’s father, Mathew Knowles. “Mathew Knowles has been a positive influence in my career,” she said in a statement. “I have had great success under his guidance — both as a member of Destiny’s Child and with my solo projects. Although we have decided to part ways professionally, the Knowles family and the entire Music World Entertainment team will always be my family.”

After trying her hand in a few television roles, most recently as the co-host of the Bravo! reality show ‘The Fashion Show,’ for which she has since been replaced by model Iman, Rowland is getting back to making music. Her third studio album, titled ‘Kelly Rowland,’ which includes the single ‘Forever and a Day,’ is due in stores next year.
