Lauryn Hill’s Tax Evasion Tour In the Works

As we predicted, Lauryn Hill is about to start singing for her supper again!

The recently sprung ex-Fugees member was recently released from the clink for tax evasion and now that her three months is up, Hill is looking to make some cash to pay off the balance and feed her children (she had 5 the last time we counted).

According to sources, Hill was set to have home detention for the next three months, but she has asked the judge presiding over her case to give her permission to perform and make some money and he bought it. With that out of the way, Lauryn is busy trying to promote her new single and book venues to promote it.

Hey, it’s either this or sing ‘No Woman, No Cry’ on the sidewalks and we cannot have our hip hop legends doing that, right?!

Lauryn Hill: Prison or Probation?

Lauryn Hill is back in the news in a big way and not the way she probably wants to be!

The one-time star of hip-hop soul was sentenced to prison yesterday for not filing taxes from 2005 to 2007. She owes Uncle Sam nearly a million dollars in back taxes, but she may be able to pay it off before her May 6th sentencing.

Her attorney spoke to the press and confirmed that the singer just signed a deal with Sony valued at $1 million dollars. The singer is also looking to secure a loan worth nearly $700,000 to pay off the rest of the bill. If she can pay all of this off in time, perhaps she won’t see a day of prison and will instead receive a long probation. Get ready, fans.

Hill’s ‘people-lauryn-hill‘ CD is just around the corner!

Lauryn Hill: From the Grammys to the Slammys?

Lauryn Hill has been hiding away for well over a decade in her own self-imprisonment. Well, thanks to not paying taxes for a few years, Lauryn is about to go to the pen against her will, whether she likes it or not!

The multiple-Grammy winning, former lead singer of hip hop legends The Fugees, is begging the courts now for mercy because of her state during those years. Hill claims that there were real threats made against her and her family between 2005 and 2007. She has already plead guilty to the charges and now awaits sentencing. Hill is arguing that she could make alot more money outside of jail to re-pay her debts than in it. Agreed. Expect ‘The New Mis-education of Lauryn Hill’ in a few months if she avoids prison!
