Lauryn Hill's $1 Million Music Deal With Sony Could Keep Her Out Of Jail!

lauryn hill tax evasion

Apparently, Lauryn Hill and taxes do not mix. But unfortunately for her, that’s not really an option.

The former Fugees singer, who has been looking at three years in prison due to tax evasion, could in fact avoid her time inside thanks to a $1 million Sony record deal.

Lauryn owes close to $504,000 in federal taxes on her $1.8 million income earned between 2005 and 2007. But things were looking up at her Monday proceeding in Newark, New Jersey.

Assistant US Attorney Sandra Moser said that Lauryn’s five song Sony deal could be the solution. Judge Madeline Cox decided to postpone the singer’s sentencing until May 6th, giving her the added time to pay off her taxes. The Judge said:

Beyoncé Seeks Justice! Sony Sues Over Leaked 4 Album! It's Sasha Fierce's Revenge!

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersBeyonce

beyonce sues man leaked 4 album

Don’t even think about messing with Queen Bey, because it’ll most definitely cost you!!

Back in June of 2011, Beyoncé released her album 4, but it had already been leaked online 16 days beforehand!

Now Sony Music has filed a lawsuit against a Swedish man who they believe uploaded it to The Pirate Bay, a torrent website!

So, just how much are they seeking in damages??

The papers filed say Sony is suing for $233,000, for not only leaking the album, but damaging their relationship with Bey and taking a toll on her own reputation, as well!

The man, who’s currently not being named, is believed to have gotten his hands on 4 in advance through some music industry connections of his!

Guess this should be taken as a warning for the other music pirates out there!

We hope this doesn’t happen again with Beyoncé’s upcoming album that she’s working on… as much as we can't wait to hear it!

Pink Sued Over Unpaid Royalties From 1st Album!

pink lawsuit 36k unpaid royalties sony

Uh-oh, SpaghettiOs!

Specialists Entertainment is suing Pink for alleged unpaid royalties from over a decade ago.

The recently filed court documents say the company helped produce her first album, Can't Take Me Home, but is still owed $36,213.31.

Normally we'd shake a disapproving finger at a celeb with unpaid bills, but this case doesn't exactly scream negligence on her part.

Pink isn't refuting the record company's claims, technically, but her peeps insist
