Poor Lauryn Hill. If it ain’t one thing it’s another with her — although I’m wondering when she’s going to learn that people don’t play when it comes to their money. We all know the Grammy-Award winning singer is in major trouble with the IRS, having pled guilty to tax fraud last year. Now she’s being sued for eviction by her landlord and could find herself out on the street.
According to TMZ, Lauryn’s been renting a mansion in South Orange, NJ, since 2009, but apparently stopped paying rent last month. As a result, her landlord went to court to file a legal ultimatum demanding that she pay up or get out. Apparently she still hasn’t paid, so the landlord is moving ahead with the eviction lawsuit.
Unlike Lauryn’s odd reasoning for not paying her taxes — she claimed she had received frightening threats — she likely has a somewhat decent reasoning for not paying her rent. According to TMZ, next week Lauryn will be sentenced for tax fraud and since she’s facing several years in federal prison, paying rent likely isn’t at the top of her list of priorities — if she even has the cash to pay. Still, the landlord needs his money too and it’s not the smartest move to add more money woes on top of others. Let’s just hope her babies have somewhere to stay for the time being and after if, unfortunately, she goes to prison.
