Lauryn Hill has taken to her Facebook account to clear the air over rumors of having new outstanding tax problems. In 2012, Hill plead guilty to tax evasion charges and served a three month sentence for it. In recent days, Hill has been subject to a barrage of unsolicited attention after murmurs of persisting tax issues arose via the ever-gossiping internets. But she’s not biting this time. She lays out her full situation, though she owes that to no one. We hope this will silence all the chatter and allow for you all to get on to spreading more important rumors. Like whether Taylor and Kanye have been plotting Famous-gate since 2009. Read Lauryn Hill’s full statement below.
I wanted to address the recent reports in the media that I have new tax issues. This is not a new situation, I’m still taking care of past taxes. This has been an ongoing process, and I have been working steadily towards a resolution. It has been an uphill battle, but we’re getting over the hump. I left the game, I wanted out, the way it was organized needed adjustment. When you eat a lot of other people’s debts like I did, and become financially responsible for as many people as I did, a break like the one I took was necessary. It took bold, courageous moves, and cost me certain economic comforts. But it’s getting better every day, thank God, and I’m living a much more liberated existence because of it.
Thank you for your concern,
