Lauryn Hill Being Sued for Eviction
Lauryn Hill may be evicted from her South Orange, N.J. mansion just days after she pled guilty to tax fraud, TMZ reports.
The Fugees singer, 37, has been renting the mansion since 2009, but her landlord alleges Hill stopped paying her rent last month. Her landlord has subsequently filed suit forcing Hill to either pay her rent immediately or move out of the mansion.
Lauryn Hill blames tax evasion on threats to her family
Hill is scheduled to be sentenced next week for tax fraud, and faces up to three years in prison.
Hill made headlines earlier this week when she filed papers saying that she didn't file tax returns in 2005, 2006 and 2007 because "she withdrew from society at large due to what she perceived as manipulation and very real threats to herself and her family." Hill has requested probation, instead of jail time, so that she can pay off her debt more quickly.
