Beyoncé will be getting a long overdue bump in her bank account, courtesy of New York City.
The Lemonade siren is among a number of New Yorkers (past and present) that will finally be receiving some money that’s been due to them, according to ThatGrapeJuice.net.
About $14.5 billion in unclaimed funds, which have recently been released, were found in old bank accounts, stocks, gift cards, and uncashed checks.
Granted, Beyoncé won’t be receiving all $14.5 billion, but it’s unclear how much she will be getting. Among the haul, it was discovered that the department store Bergdorf Goodman owes Beyoncé two checks from 2008, so we can awesome it’s going to be a nice chunk of change.
While she’s counting her overdue pay, Bey will be receiving another payout from the New York State Department of Tax & Finance.
