Lauryn Hill Puts Off Prison, Signs Million-Dollar Deal with Sony

Lauryn Hill was scheduled to be sentenced for tax evasion today, but her case has been delayed for two weeks. She appeared in a Newark courtroom, where it was revealed that she has signed a lucrative deal with Sony.

The former Fugees frontwoman is facing prison after pleading guilty to not paying federal taxes on $1.8 million earned between 2005 and 2007. She appeared before a federal judge, who postponed her sentencing to May 6 and scolded the Grammy winner for not making progress on the debt.

“This is not someone who stands before the court penniless,” U.S. Magistrate Judge Madeline Cox Arleo told Hill’s attorney, Nathan Hochman. “This is a criminal matter. Actions speak louder than words, and there has been no effort here to pay these taxes.”

According to TMZ, Hill’s attorney revealed that the singer recently signed a million-dollar recording contract with her former label Sony and was planning to take out a $650,000 loan to pay off the $968,000 tax bill.

“I fully expect that by May 3 Ms. Hill will be able to pay back all the restitution she has,” Hochman told the judge.

Hill faces several years in prison, but her attorney is seeking probation for the mother of six.

I hope she get's through this and then sooner or later makes another album.

The miseducation is a classic.

I also want to say that I liked her better with locks and the fro too though. She really don't look the same. But still is a beautiful women on the inside.

The industry fu*ked her vibe up. Corrupted her already fragile soul. Pure artists just cant deal with the music business and can def discouragr them from doing the thing they once loved. Shorty had a vision though. She was def a genius and a talent with her work. If she wanted, she could've move the world like on some John Lennon type sh*t. Only few people can move masses like that through messages.. John Lennon.. Michael Jackson.. Etc...

Why dont artists like her, D'Angelo & Maxwell just make a ton of music & just gradually release it since they all hate the biz & probably hate the fame too. If you're in a zone while recording an album, why not just continuously record & stash the tunes? I just through Maxwell in there b/c he took a long hiatus too.

Well played music industry.. Well played

They just say back and waited til her back was against the wall and signed her to a deal worth the same amount as Kreayshawn

12-15 years ago Lauryn Hill could have laughed in the face of a $1 million dollar deal..

Sony just bought low and are bout to sell high..

Anyone else think this is dumb? She could have stayed making music, thus possibly avoiding the financial trouble she is in now. Now, she is hella old and comes off like she only signed a deal to bail her out of her money woes.

I once had a very high amount of respect for Lauren Hill, but after this... I honestly kind of don't care.

now she is forced to work cuz of financial issues

Me too man. That would be a terrible situation for her to sign a 360 just cause she needed the money. I honestly feel the solution for this problem was for her to just pay the irs from the jump.

The IRS dont play and was gonna get her eventually anyway.

I think you're dumb and uninformed.

But the thing is tat she did not want to be in the industry anymore after awhile.

Why would you lose any respect for her?

Sure she signed a deal for the money but she damn sure needs it.

You're right but they damn sure was not going to give her more than a million now.

She hasn't made a new recording in years and she also may be out of her prime.

I heard her perform on summer jam and she performed her song "Doo Woop/That Thing", let me just say that her accent grew on real thick. I would still support a new album but her voice got tough.
