Lauryn Hill leaves court

Somber signer Lauryn Hill was spotted leaving a Newark, New Jersey court Monday (April 22) after a judge postponed her sentencing and gave her two weeks to pay $504,000 she owes the IRS in back taxes. Hill, 37, fell behind in her taxes after claiming she took a 3-year hiatus from show biz to find herself. Prosecutors charged the Grammy winner with “willfully failing to file income tax returns with the IRS” for 3 years. According to Hill, she wasn’t obligated to pay taxes for those 3 years since she wasn’t working. But the judge disagreed, saying Hill earned a modest sum of 1.8 million dollars from 2005-2007. She faces up to 5 years in jail and an additional $100,000 in fines.
