She’s been flying below the radar for awhile now, so when Lauryn Hill was added to the 2016 Grammy Awards performers list, her fans were understandably thrilled.
However, the “That Thing” songstress cancelled her appearance at the last minute and her rep told Billboard that the gig was never official to begin with.
She's been behind bars for tax evasion for three months, and now Lauryn Hill has her freedom today (October 4).
The 38-year-old singer is not only excited about her release from jail, she's also excited to go back to her work and release her new single called "Consumerism."
Miss Hill took to her Tumblr page to not only expressed gratitude to her fans for the support they gave but also to shared details about the single.
While celebrities often catch a break for their drug abuse arrests, it seems tax evasion is a whole different ballgame. Just ask Lauryn Hill.
The “That Thing” songstress just checked in to a federal prison in Connecticut where she’ll serve three months for failing to cut Uncle Sam in on her earnings.
Though she's had phenomenal success as both a solo artist and member of The Fugees, Lauryn Hill angered Uncle Sam by not giving him his cut.
Last year, the 37-year-old musician pled guilty to three counts of tax evasion when she failed to file returns for the $1.8 million she earned from 2005-2007.
Pleading guilty to three counts of tax evasion, Lauryn Hill could face up to three years in prison following her New Jersey court room appearance on Friday (June 29).
The "Do Wop" singer faces a year in the slammer for each count after failing to file federal tax returns on more than $1.6 million with the Internal Revenue Service in 2005, 2006 and 2007.
Becoming a mother for the sixth time, Lauryn Hill reportedly gave birth to her sixth child over the weekend.
According to numerous reports, the former "Fugees" singer welcomed a son on Saturday (July 23), following a rather complicated delivery.
After months of speculation, Lauryn Hill has revealed some exciting (and expected) news - she does indeed have a baby on board!
This will be the sixth child for the Grammy Award winner and boyfriend Rohan Marley (son of reggae icon Bob Marley).
