I guess everything ain’t really everything for Lauryn Hill. She is now going to prison for 3 months for failure to pay over $1.8 Million in taxes. She is also facing 3 additional months on house arrest and 9 months of supervised release. According to the Ms. Hill, she told the judge it was her intent to pay her taxes, but since she left the music business back in the day, she was more focused on taking care of her child.
“I needed to be able to earn so I could pay my taxes, without compromising the health and welfare of my children, and I was being denied that,” she told the judge.
Before the sentencing her attorney told the judge that Ms. Hill paid more than $970,000 to the state to pay back most of the debt. She also signed to Sony to pay off the debt as well. A few days ago she released the song Neurotic Society, thats part of the joint venture. Keep your head up Ms. Hill….
