Lauryn Hill is owed a lot of money from a relative.

The artist, who is currently on a tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of seminal debut solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, is suing her cousin Gerald Hill for failing to pay her back for a loan. Hill is asking for $65,000 according to a report from Bossip.

The site acquired documents from the lawsuit, with Hill claiming Gerald conned her out of the money after they entered into a contract in which he agreed to pay 10 percent interest if the loan wasn’t paid off within three months. She loaned him the money back in June last year.

Along with the $65,000, Hill is also requesting interest and money damages for the losses she said she suffered by Gerald failing to pay her for the loan.

In related news, Hill has embarked on her first-ever fashion campaign, which finds her as the face of Woolrich’s autumn/winter 2018 campaign.

In a video for the campaign, Hill can be seen walking through Washington Heights before entering the United Palace, where she sings an acoustic version of her song “Ex-Factor.” The video also features the artist in jackets with screen-printed images bearing her likeness as well as the album cover for Miseducation.
