lauryn hill tax evasion sentencing postponed two weeks narrowly avoids jail

Phew! That was close!

Famed R&B artist Lauryn Hill was almost sent upstate to the pokey today after pleading guilty to evading the tax man from 2005 to 2007!!!

In fact, she was sentenced to prison, but her magician of a lawyer bought her two extra weeks to try and raise the $968K she owes her favorite Uncle Sam!

Her sentencing is set for May 6 and apparently Mrz. Hill will try everything from taking out loans to inking new recording deals with Sony in order to avoid seeing the inside of a cell!

How exactly do so many celebz forget to pay their taxes?

You'd think a super famous songbird could afford to keep an accountant on the payroll to remind them!

Either way, we hope she gets her shiz together ASAP!!!

If Lauryn doesn't repay these debts, the Doo Wop (That Thing) singer could spend several years in the slammer!

    loved her is sister act 2, loved her music….hate her racist hateful comments made to Rolling Stone prior to the birth of Zion…as beautiful and talented as she is…she'd still rather kill her unborn child than have a white person listen to her music.

    shes unfortunate and gross…she can go to jail now.

    …she'd still rather kill her unborn child than have a white person listen to her music" I'm not a fan of Ms. Hill, but this is a paraphrase of a false statement made by an unknown caller to the Howard Stern show. Supposedly the caller said they heard her say racist statements on MTV, which have been proven to be false.

    Lauryn this is the same media that has been used to torment entertainers in the past who go out of "line" and now it is showing you it powers to destroy your reputation through slanders, insults, and yes to make you appear irresponsible, mental derranged and all of the other adjective to make their point. But then I am not telling you something that you don't already know. Get Out Lauryn. This is the mystery of iniquity. This is by far your best work without the hype. It was your heart and the people wanted fantasy.
