Lauryn Hill Signs Record Deal with Sony
It's Sony to the rescue after Lauryn Hill is given two weeks to come up with half a million dollars or face jail time for tax evasion...
On Monday Lauryn Hill was given a reprieve from sentencing after pleading guilty to failure to file tax returns in 2005, 2006 and 2007 on a reported $1.8 million.
In court it was revealed Lauryn just signed a million-dollar recording contract with Sony and would be able to borrow the money to pay her delinquent tax bill.
The judge appeared unmoved telling Ms. Hill's attorney, “This is not someone who stands before the court penniless. This is a criminal matter. Actions speak louder than words, and there has been no effort here to pay these taxes.”
Lauryn Hill's next sentencing is May 6.
