It hasnâ€™t been the best week for singer Lauryn Hill. Early this week, she explained that she stopped paying taxes after withdrawing from society a few years ago when considerable threats were made against her family. It resulted in her now guilty plea for not â€œpaying federal taxes on more than $1.5 million over three years,â€ according to the Huffington Post.
Now, the eight-time Grammy award winner is also being sued by her landlord for eviction. According to TMZ, the landlord of Hillâ€™s South Orange, NJ mansion filed an eviction lawsuit after Hill failed to pay last monthâ€™s rent. Documents obtained by TMZ state that Hill has been renting the mansion since 2009.
Reports of the compounding drama serve as a mere prelude to Hillâ€™s upcoming April 22nd tax evasion sentencing. She faces up to one year in prison and $100,000 in fines for each count.
