Perhaps some of you may not have even known that Lauryn Hill was in prison, but she was, for millions in tax evasion. What is REALLY interesting is that she was staying in the same prison that is portrayed on the Netflix show, Orange is the New Black. Try to take a moment to imagine Lauryn Hill in the kitchen, working with Red? Man, that would be so cool. Anyway, though you may just be finding out she was in jail, she actually did her time and is now OUT of jail.
Originally jailed for failing to pay taxes on almost two million dollars worth of income, the star had to serve three months, which she now has, successfully, and intends to move on with her life.
For those who know anything at all about Lauryn Hill, they know she keeps her life quite hidden from the public eye, and it is safe to say that she will continue to live her life this way, with her prison stay behind her. Truth is, Lauryn Hill is a brilliant woman (who maybe, in this case, made a poor choice) but we are just hoping all this adds to her ability to tell stories through song, and we truly hope she makes some new music soon, because The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill is an incredibly powerful album.
Props to you, Lauryn Hill, for doing what you had to do, and moving on with your life. We commend you. More on this story at TMZ.
