Lauryn Hill Gets 3 Months In Jail For Tax Evasion! Ready Or Not, She's Checking Into FEDERAL PRISON!

lauryn hill federal prison three months

Holy shish kabobs, we can't believe this is really happening!!

Lauryn Hill was just sentenced to three months in jail for tax evasion!!!

She claims to have paid the gov't her $970K in back taxes BEFORE the sentencing, but apparently that didn't sufficiently impress the judge!

Now the phenomenal former Fugees star faces a three months stint in a federal prison and will spend another three months on house arrest after that!!

Damn!! That hurts!!!

The 37-year-old star knew she was in hot water after pleading guilty last year to several counts of tax evasion on earnings of around $1.8 mil, but we doubt she expected this outcome!!

Lauryn delivered a statement in court today and compared her situation to slavery — she said:

"I was put into a system I didn't know the nature of. … I'm a child of former slaves. I got into an economic paradigm and had that imposed on me… I sold 50 million units … now I'm up here paying a tax debt. If that's not likened to slavery, I don't know what is."

The judge ordered the singer to report to prison by July 8, but it's still unclear precisely where she will repay her debt to society.

    She is rich and knows people. How the fuck do these famous people not investigate upon taxes themselves. There is no law anywhere where it says that we have to pay our taxes.

    Wow. A whole three months. Celebrity justice at it's finest. It's official. Laws are just for the poor and non-famous, besides rappers. And I'm sorry, anyone who was born in the last fifty years has has the same "economic paradigm" put upon them as everyone else and she's been blessed enough to make tons of money in that horrible "paradigm". Grow up.

    The IRS does not fool around, I have indirect personal experience from a business I worked for that got shut down and everyone had 15 minutes to gather their things before a lock went on the door.

    Wait…what? She didn't know about the IRS & taxes because she was the child of slaves?
