The soulful singer reported to the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury this morning for a minimum security stay in barracks-like housing.

Nope. Lauryn isn't getting

Dolce & Gabbana Probably Won't Serve A Single Day In Prison After All!

Dolce & Gabbana probably won't go to prison after all!

Rejoice and praise the benevolent fashion gods!

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana may have been found guilty of tax evasion and sentenced to 20 months in prison on Wednesday, but since everything is better in Italy, they won't have to spend a single day behind bars!

According to Italian law, sentences that are less than two years usually don't have to be served, and are more like suspended sentences, but if the designers are found guilty of any criminal acts again during that time period, they will

Dolce & Gabbana Found GUILTY Of Tax Evasion! Sentenced To 20 Months In Prison!

Designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana get sentenced to 20 months in prison!

There's no escaping the long arm of the law!

Years of court battles have ultimately culminated in a guilty verdict for designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana for tax evasion.

Judge Antonella Brambilla sentenced the designers to 20 months in prison (which is like a decade in fashion years!) following a three-hour jury meeting in a Milan court on Wednesday.

Of course, the designers and their legal team are expected to appeal since they've always maintained their innocence.

But even if they do end up getting thrown behind bars, will it really be so bad? Martha Stewart did her time and even got a very special poncho made for her by an inmate!

Maybe Domenico and Stefano will be allowed to take their sewing kits with them and make lace-trimmed shirts for their fellow inmates!

And who knows, they just might come out of the ordeal having experienced a thousand life-changing epiphanies and release a prison-inspired collection that will revolutionize the fashion industry!

Anything is possible!

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:
