Despite fully paying off her tax debt just in time before her sentencing, Lauryn Hill is heading to prison for three months.
According to TMZ, a judge handed down the ruling earlier today in a Newark, New Jersey court.
The former Fugee rapper/singer will also spend 3 months on house arrest after completing her prison sentence and 9 months of Supervised released.
Earlier today Lauryn Hill’s attorney released a statement saying the hip-hop icon has paid off her nearly million dollar tax debt.
“Ms. Hill has not only now fully paid prior to sentencing her taxes, which are part of her criminal restitution, but she has additionally fully paid her federal and state personal taxes for the entire period under examination through 2009,” Hill’s attorney, Nathan Hochman, told Reuters.
Last year Lauryn Hill pleaded guilty to three counts of tax fraud after failing to file tax return on $1.8 million of income from 2005-2007.
Lauryn Hill was ordered by the judge to report to prison by July 8.
