Lauryn Hill is sounding off on the accusations that she’s a “squatter” plus, the Grammy Award winning singer apparently has two weeks to come up with half a million dollars or will be facing major jail time…
Lauryn Hill was initially scheduled to be sentenced today after pleading guilty on tax evasion charges for failing to report $1.8 million in income/

The hearing was postponed until May 6th, but Ms. Hill will have to come up with $504,000 or face up to 30 months in prison.

On top of that DRAMA, the rumor-mill was reporting that Ms. Hill was facing eviction from her home in New Jersey after falling behind on her rent.

But now Lauryn is setting the record straight and goes off on tabloid journalism…

Hill writes:

YET ANOTHER MEDIA INACCURACY…

I’d like to set the record straight: I am not squatting, and I do not owe any money to my landlord. I have always stayed current on rent. I was raised in South Orange, which is why these allegations are not only false, but insulting. I am in talks with the town about resolving an unrelated issue, regarding how I use my home to work on my music, which has nothing to do with my financial obligations.

Won’t it be great when real journalism returns to replace inaccurate tabloid harassment.

 Stay Tuned.
