According to Radar Online, the couple's restaurants were previously hit with two federal liens -- one in 2020 for $15,812.52 and another lien was filed in 2021 for $5,156.50 in back taxes. A third IRS lien was filed for $23,000 in back taxes on Nov. 17.

Those amounts may seem minuscule to you, but there's a financial strategy behind IRS liens that most people aren't aware of.

Meanwhile, Kandi quietly unloaded her first home to free up some extra cash.

According to real estate records obtained by Radar Online, she sold her 4-bedroom, 5-bathroom, 3,733 sq. ft. home located in Fayetteville, Georgia for $555,000 earlier this year.

Kandi made a tidy profit on the sale after purchasing the property with her Xscape checks back in 1996 for $252,000.

Question: If Kandi created a GoFundMe page to raise donations to help offset her bills, would you contribute?
