Lauryn Hill's tax evasion sentencing was delayed for two weeks on Monday so she can pay a restitution fee, The Associated Press reports.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Madeline Cox Arleo postponed the sentencing until May 6 and criticized Hill for failing to make the payment by Monday's hearing as promised. The singer has only paid $50,000 of $554,000.

To help her pay off her debt, Hill's attorney, Nathan Hochman, said that the former Fugees singer has recently signed a $1 million record contract with Sony and will take out a $650,000 loan.
