We have just found out that the 7 time grammy award winner has been sentenced to 3 months of prison for failure to pay her $1 million tax debt. A New Jersey judge sentenced R&B Songstress Lauryn Hill to 3 months of prison, and 3 months of house arrest. Hill, 37, stated that she had always planned to repay the taxes but was unable to during a hiatus from the music business.
Before the sentencing, her attorney said Hill had paid more than $970,000 to satisfy the state and federal tax liabilities. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough. She still owes 60,000 in fees.
The “Doo Wop” singer has up to July 8th to report to prison, but we still don’t know where she will be serving her time! This is so unfortunate as her fans have been anticipating more music since 1998!
