Lauryn Hill has pleaded guilty to tax charges, admitting that she intentionally failed to file three years' worth of income tax returns with the IRS. The mother of six now faces up to three years in prison and a possible $75,000 in fines.
Lauryn, who gets most of her money from music and film royalties, admitted failing to file income taxes in 2005, 2006 and 2006, a period during which the singer admitted to earning more than $1.8 million, according to court documents.
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."
