Legendary, Grammy award-winning singer/emcee, and Fugees founder, Lauryn Hill, has been sentenced to three months in a federal prison, along with three months on house arrest and an order to pay a $60,000 fine, in addition to taxes on over $2 million in earnings.
The famed singer and South Orange, NJ resident pleaded guilty in the tax case, telling Judge Madeline Cox Arleo that she had the intention paying the overdue taxes, but could never scrape together the funds to do so, after her departure from the entertainment industry. To date, she had paid over $970,000 against her tax liabilities.
This news comes days after Lauryn’s announcement that she would return to music, with the release of her new track “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)”, as posted here earlier today.
Here’s hoping that Hill’s time in prison goes smoothly, and she can make a triumphant return to music sooner-than-later.
