Lauryn Hill Will NOT Serve Time In The Slammer, According To Former Fugees Member!

lauryn hill jail time fugees pras

Pras is a wise, logical man.

The former Fugees member is pretty confident that even though Lauryn Hill has been sentenced to 3 months of hard time, she probably won't have to serve it.

How did he come to this conclusion??

Pras explained:

"I doubt she's going to do three months. Listen, if Lindsay Lohan doesn't do any time than why would she do time?"

Good point!

Lauryn would NOT be the first celeb to be released from prison early!

Why should stars like Lindsay Lohan get off for their reckless run-ins with the law and not Lauryn??

Not to mention — while tax evasion is a MAJOR offense — this is Lauryn's first time in front of a judge and it was a completely non-violent charge.

We suppose we'll just have to wait and see how long the soul sista is forced to wear an orange jump suit.

But do YOU think Lauryn deserves three months of jail time??

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:

It has been reported that Lauryn has BIG problems with the tax man that could land her in the slammer unless the payday from her new record deal saves her from being thrown behind bars, but what does Miss Hill have to say about the matter??

The former Fugees frontwoman has revealed that *GASP* not everything is as it seems!

In regard to the DEEP financial debt she's found herself in, Lauryn explained:

lauryn hill says threats to her and her family caused her to not file her taxes

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:

Lauryn Hill's Tax Problems Are Worse Than We Thought! She Owes $400K In State Taxes Too!

Filed under: Legal MattersLauryn Hill

Lauryn Hill is already facing up to three years in prison for federal tax evasion, but now New Jersey is going after her for not paying taxes too!

The state issued a civil judgement in June which found the Fugee owed $446,386 in unpaid taxes.

Fortunately for her, those charges won't lead to more jail time since the debt is a civil liability as opposed to a criminal one.

We hope this gurl can get her life back in order after this financial and legal blow. We'll find out in November whether or not she's going to prison and if so, how long she'll be there.
