Lauryn Hill's Mug Shot Emerges As She Faces Three Years For Tax Evasion
 

 


Lauryn Hill faces three years behind bars after admitting she failed to file tax returns between 2005 and 2007, during which time she earned $1.8 million, and her mugshot was released today.

The solemn 37-year-old is seen in the picture wearing the same white blouse she donned on June 29 after pleading guilty to the three-count misdemeanor filed in U.S. District Court in Newark, New Jersey.

The eight-time Grammy-winner, currently free on a $150,000 unsecured bond, is scheduled to be sentenced on November 27.

And as there's nothing more certain than death and taxes, her attorney Nathan Hochman said Hill planned to pay back the $818,000 from 2005, $222,000 from 2006, and $761,000 from 2007.

The troubled singer-rapper, who first gained fame and millions of dollars as the lead singer of The Fugees, also faces $75,000 in fines.

In a lengthy post on her Tumblr page earlier in June she responded to the charges, claiming she wanted to leave mainstream society in protest against its 'climate of hostility, false entitlement, manipulation, racial prejudice, s3xism and ageism.'

Lauryn said: 'My intention has always been to get this situation rectified. When I was working consistently without being affected by the interferences mentioned above, I filed and paid my taxes.

'This only stopped when it was necessary to withdraw from society, in order to guarantee the safety and well-being of myself and my family.'

It's ironic that Hill cites the safety and well-being of her family as a reason she failed to pay up as little Zion, 15, Selah, 13, Joshua, 10, John, 9, Sarah, 4, and one-year-old Micah will surely suffer if their mother toils in jail.

Lauryn released one solo album, the critically-acclaimed Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, in 1998 and then largely disappeared from public view to raise her six children, five of whom she had with reggae singer Bob Marley's son Rohan.

After over a decade together, the 39-year-old is now engaged to supermodel Isabeli Fontana despite only a short courtship.

Meanwhile the talented singer has been making several appearances at concerts, including last month's Openair Frauenfeld Festival in Switzerland and the annual Wawa Welcome America concert in Philadelphia.

Lauryn has also found herself in a legal wrangle after her former fashion consultant accused her of stealing clothes.

Company Via Davia Vintage claimed in 2011 Hill took the majority of a 'wardrobe of high fashion items' from them after they agreed to provide them for her 2007 tour of Europe.

She was also sued in relation to the tour for harassment and unpaid wages by Jay Gore, a guitarist in her band, who claimed she would insult the band while he toured with her.

Part of the lawsuit stated: 'After shows, Hill would demand that the musicians and road support personnel attend meetings where she would engage in a person-by-person critique and berating.'
