As we reported to you last week, R&B songbird Lauryn Hill has been going through her share of legal issues. This week the New Jersey resident was spotted leaving court where she was scheduled to be sentenced for her case of evading tax payments. The judge postponed her sentencing and ordered her to pay 504,000 to the IRS in 2 weeks. Apparently Hill had also taken a hiatus in paying taxes during her 3 year break from music she took to “find herself”. The 8 time grammy winner was charged with willfully failing to file income tax returns with the IRS for 3 years. Hill was scorned by the judge this monday for breaking their first agreement to pay 550,000, half of her 1.8 million dollar balance. Lauryn revealed that she recently signed to Sony Music witha 1 million dollar agreement, and would be using her advance to pay her taxes.
We are excited to hear that Lauryn may be giving us more music! Hopefully the Sister Act 2 star comes to the court this May 6th with a briefcase full of dead presidents or a prayer from Sister Mary Clarence.
