Lauryn Hill Sentenced to Three Months


Despite paying her back taxes in full Lauryn Hill has been sentenced to three months in federal prison for tax evasion...

At her last court hearing Lauryn Hill was given two weeks to come up with $500,000 toward her $1.8 million tax debt for failing to file taxes in 2005, 2006 and 2007 [click here if you missed that].

According to reports Lauryn Hill cut a check to the IRS yesterday for $900,000 to settle the debt but it wasn't enough to keep her from getting locked up.

Today Lauryn Hill was sentenced to three months in jail, a $60,000 fine, one year probation and possibly three months of home confinement.

Ms. Hill must report to prison on July 8th.

That's not shit compared to what us common folk would get. On another note Wesley Snipes and Ronald Isley old ass should've have obtained her attorney's services.

Don't Mess With The Feds. Pay Your Taxes! Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it you can never get it back.

I wonder if she will get released immediately due to overcrowding like other "celebrities" have (Hilton, Lohan).

That is a gorgeous pic of Lauren...the judge didn't want to hear that "slave" reference & excuse of being put into a situation that she didn't fully understand.
I see her point of reference but her beef sounds like its with the record label & the lawyer that cosigned the contract for her solo career. Follow Prince cause he got tired of the label using his black ass too...

Hopefully, this pisses her off enough to write some hot shit!!!

If this had of been Lohan the judge would have given her probabtion for a few years and that would have been the end of it. Considering that this was probably her first offense and that she paid the money in full, and is the caregiver to her 5 kids I think 3 months is a bit much.

Nooooooooooooooooooo!! This is so unfair. She has 5 kids to take care of. A white bitch would have got probation. Look at all the shit Lindsay Lohan gets away with. Three months is too long! Appeal it Lauryn. Damn, she paid an extra $400,000 on top of the $500,000 she was ordered to pay. She shouldn't have to go to jail. I don't like this shit, I don't like this shit at all.

Free Lauryn Hill and Remy Ma!!!

Lauryn shouldn't have to do jail time. I pray for a miracle to happen between now and July 8th.

She could of used that $900,000 towards having a hologram posted in court on her behalf.

I wonder if the judge was a man... Lauryn needs to be with her kids. Three months is too long to be away from her babies. And she just had a baby the other day. Her youngest son must be at least two now. The judge is an inconsiderate asshole.

Forgot Remy Ma was still locked up. smh

I hope she does a few hours out of the three months and is released, due to special circumstances.

They sure don't hesitate to lock a nicca up! Yet Lindsay Lohan has 100 lives. And gets away with the most isht.

Maybe this will inspire her to write good music because that new single she leaked was SHIT!

Anonymous said...

So, Lauryn paid $970,000 total before the specified time ordered and she STILL has to go to jail? Somethings very wrong here. Lol @ the reason Lauryn gave the judge for not paying her taxes. That shit about slaves, probably didn't help her case at all, and maybe the reason the judge gave her a lil time AFTER she paid what was ordered of her. She should have let her lawyer speak on her behalf. Crooked ass judge. And a crooked ass system.

Anonymous said...

why is Remy locked up, what did she do? Keep ya head up Lauryn and write some FIRE in the meantime. Get out and SPIT it.

As for Lohan the Feds don't play. If Martha Stewart old chocolate-chip-cookie baking ass could get locked up.....

Anonymous said...

Hopefully she'll be in there no longer than a month. Disgusting how she's getting treated like a common criminal thug in the name of the law, not posing any threat to the public when they seemed reluctant to lock up vile, child-killing scum like George Zimmerman.

Fuck Remy Ma....that delusional hood rat pulled out a gun & shot a "friend" that stole some $ out her purse. Maybe stomp a bitch out for violating but pulling the trigger on a petty thief fucked up that girls career/$. She was about to sign a major deal w Def Jam when that b.s. jumped off. See what happens when you act on impulse...She may not feel lucky but she is lucky as hell that girl didn't die!!! When Remy fell Is when Nicki got put on. Word on the NY streets is Nicki&Remy use to fuck around. Im waiting to see how Nicki interacts w Remy.

You think they won't come for you when you start talking that uplifting warrior shit when you have that many people listening?why do you think these brands use us to sell thier shit? cause people FOLLOW WHAT WE DO .Every time we get the notion to rise they make an example .Better pray for Lauryn cause she reacted because of her family. Lauryn walked away from money, at the hieight of her career, now why is that?

OK I remember Remy now. (It's been a minute aint it, totally forgot about her) Thanks for the reminder. Yes, that ignant rat needs to do all her time. She aint in the same boat as Ms. Lauryn.

FREE LAURYN HILL!

Any black artist that talks about anything positive either has a white person singing on the hook. As we know white people lack soul. So the song falls flat. Or their rapping/singing over a wack dance beat. Eve has a positive song out, but dude on the chorus and the beat is way off. What Eve's talking about could be classed as a "Heaven Only Knows" "Love Is Blind" type of song. But the beat and whitey ruined it for me. Love the words and positive message of the song though.

I hope Lauryn is able to make good, uplifting music. Music that challenges ones thought process. Every artist is on the same shit, talking about the same shit, doing the same shit. Where's the creativity and originality? These new-age artists are like zombies, no mind of their own. Just going with what's hot and talking a load of shit on record that has no substance.

Lauryn should get the grade A cell with the luxury accommodations like those in witness protection. She made a bad mistake but she didn't hurt nobody!

Anonymous said...

Awww, you guys are mean lol. Leave Remy alone. She maybe on a different plateu to Ms. Hill. But Remy can spit and she is incarcerated... What the poster (can't be bothered to scroll up) said about Lauryn and George Zimmeraman was spot on. The crakkkas and jews get special treatment. Whereas niccas don't get to pass go and don't get to collect $200. Smh!

i feel bad for the kids but we need to realize black folks can't do what white folks do.. so we better follow the laws and pay our taxes.. they are making examples out anyone who is behind on taxes.. you just don't "forget" to pay your taxes thats an deliberate act.. fuck lohan she is a drug addict not a tax cheat..Leona helmsley went to jail for a year and she too paid her debt in full.. If they locked her up what made wesley and lauren think they would get away with it.. come black people follow the rules..

Anonymous said...

While I admire her for speaking her mind, I have a feeling that what she said to the judge made the difference, although many judges already know what they re going to do before they head into the courtroom. I love her defiance though, she would ve never beenclassified as a house n%%%%
! I love ppl who don t bow down, even if it s considered a problem to the powers that B. I d contact a good ole Louisiana root doctor to handle that judge though. Now, off to Google her attorney..lol

If that mafia gangster Al Capone went to jail for tax evasion, what makes Lauryn Hill, Wesley, and the Isley brother think these white folks won't take them down? Prince came into the industry at 19 years old and refused to let anyone handle his money affairs. He did his own research and study on what to invest and not to invest. He pays his taxes, he owns his home(s),he has money in the bank and he gave back to his community. He donated hundreds of thousand of dollars to the Marva Collins School foundation in Chicago. I have much love for Lauryn, Wesley and Brotha Isley, but what they allowed to have happen to them was very bone headed, No excuse!
