Did you remember to file your taxes? We hope so, because if not you might be in some SERIOUS trouble!
Just ask Lauryn Hill! The R&B songstress has a long history of financial troubles, and could be facing jail time after failing to file her tax returns from 2005 to 2007!
But the former Fugees singer is begging Uncle Sam to go easy on her and says a series of threats to her and her family forced her to live off the grid and stop paying her taxes altogether.
A legal document filed by Lauryn and her team explains:
“She withdrew from society at large due to what she perceived as manipulation and very real threats to herself and her family.”
Yikes! Sounds like some seriously scary stuff!
The singer has already plead guilty to previous charges for missing the April 15th deadline multiple times, but she’s asking the court to take these threats into consideration and says she’ll have an easier time paying off her debt if she’s not behind bars.
Lauryn will be sentenced later this month on April 22nd, and unless the judge decides to show her some mercy she could be facing some jail time.
