(NEW YORK) -- Lauryn Hill has pled guilty to tax charges, admitting that she intentionally failed to file three years' worth of income tax returns with the IRS. That's according to TMZ, which reports that now the singer and mother of six is facing three years in prison and a possible $75,000 in fines.
Lauryn, who gets most of her money from music and film royalties, is said to have earned more than $1.8 million in the period that she failed to declare, according to TMZ. The website reports that a judge in Newark, NJ, asked the Grammy Award-winner whether she "intentionally and willingly" failed to file tax returns for the years 2005, 2006 and 2007, and Lauryn's answer was, "Yes."
Lauryn is out on $150,000 bail pending a sentencing hearing in November.
A few weeks ago, Lauryn took to Tumblr to address the tax charges against her, writing that she had stopped filing taxes only "when it was necessary to withdraw from society, in order to guarantee the safety and well-being of myself and my family."
