The time that all Lauryn Hill stans have dreded will soon come. The Grammy award winning songstress/rapper is facing jail time for tax evasion. Ms. Hill pleaded guilty to ditching her tax duties from 2005-2007 and now the federal governement wants their money. There is somewhat of a debate as to how much Ms. Hill actually owes to the IRS. Some say over 1 million. Some say under 1 million. Eitherway, it's a lot of money and if not paid, Ms. Hill faces 24-36 months in prison. According to her attorney, it is expected that Ms. Hill will have the full balance paid by the 6th and will not serve any jail time.
Ms. Hill's music career was on fire in the late 90s but it has been quite some time since she has produced a true hit. However, recent reports state that Ms. Hill signed a multi-million dollar recording contract with Sony Music so maybe, just maybe, this will mean more hits (a.k.a. more money) for the rapptress in the future.
Only time will tell what will become of this and we do hope Lauryn Hill passes this bump in the road without ever seeing the inside of a jail cell.
.......On another note, where is Lauryn's daughter Selah?

Hopefully, once Selah completes school, she will decide to bless the world with her talent and beauty. As granddaughter of the great Bob Marley and daughter of one of the hottest (female) mcees to ever touch a microphone, Selah is sure to have superstar power. I guess we just have to wait and see what will happen.....
