Lauryn Hill, eight-time Grammy award winner, has recently been accused of failing to pay taxes on more than $1.6 million dollars earned in 2005, 2006 and 2007 from recording and film royalties.

Lauren appeared in court in late June and pleaed guilty to all charges. She is currently out on bail as her sentencing hearing was postponed to November to give her time to pay back the outstanding taxes. If found guilty she could face up to 3 years in prison.
