Oh Lord Jesus: Lauryn Hill Could Be Headed To Prison

Kid Fury June 8, 2012 That's A Damn Shame 18 Comments

Oh, Lauryn. I feel like you’re that cousin who got with the dude we all warned you about, only to watch you tumble downhill and sit under the farthest tree at the family picnic…and we still love you.

Lauryn Hill is facing three years in prison after being charged with three criminal counts of willful failure to file income tax returns in 2005, 2006 and 2007. It’s being reported that the rapper/singer earned $1.6 million during that time and paid Uncle Sam dust and detergent.

According to the charges filed by the U.S. Attorney, Hill had a gross income in excess of around $818,000 in 2005; a gross income of more than about $222,000 in 2006, and a gross income of more than $761,000 in 2007 and didn’t file an income tax return to the IRS on that money during those years.

Lauryn is set to appear before U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael A. Shipp on June 29th in New Jersey. If convicted, she could face a year plus $100,000 for each of the three years that she skipped out on her taxes.

I’ve never understood all these rich people getting in trouble with the IRS. I know Lauryn has fifty-leven kids, but that money could have been set aside with plenty of herbal tea and shea butter still in her home.

  • M. Knight Scallywag

    I knew it had something to do with taxes, I’m sure whatever Island Dick rastafari indoctrination she absorbed from her BD led her to believe she don’t owe the government shit. Hopefully she can get on the Black Celebrity Back Tax Deffered Payment Plan with the rest of our fave performers.

    Kid Fury lawd the way you described Lauryn as that cousin….. I CAN’T EVEN lmao I have lost the ability to even.

    I honestly don’t know what goes on in these celebs minds that they feel they don’t have to pay Uncle Sam. They will lock yo butt up have you doing free concerts in Metro girl.
