Lauryn Hill Facing Eviction In New Jersey Residence

After four years of occupancy, Lauryn Hill reportedly defaulted on rent last month, causing her landlord to file an eviction lawsuit against the Fugees co-founder.

Founding Fugees member, emcee/singer Lauryn Hill is having a difficult week. The Newark, New Jersey native is preparing for a court sentencing date in regards to three years of non-filed taxes, where she could face felony prison-time. Reports emerged earlier in the week that the onetime Columbia Records superstar soloist cited threats on her and her family as a reason she not only evaded taxes, but went into a state of recluse from mainstream society.

Another case against Hill emerged in the last 24 hours. TMZ has learned that a South Orange, New Jersey residence of Lauryn's is currently in default. Reports indicate that while Hill has been a tenant since 2009, but failed to make rental payments beginning in March. Hill's landlord has filed a lawsuit seeking to evict the Sister Act 2 actress.

Lauryn Hill has yet to respond publicly to the reports. She is due in court for her sentencing on April 22.

    It's embarrassing how bad HiphopDX and blog sites of the like are about posting professional writing. Referring to Lauryn Hill as "Sister Act 2" actress is absolutely dumb and irrelevant, especially considering this story has nothing to do with her acting career. This kind of shit is why there are so few places to find actual news on hiphop.

    Damn, baby! In '98, you was the lady, baby. What the fuck happened to you?

  • You all don't even know...

    Lauryn Hill ain't ever broke. all the shows she has performed will keep her children healthy and well if she has to go to jail. She is still beautiful to me with the best voice the world over. She never got pimped out and for that the industry is madd and with a vengeance trying to punish her. You can't go to jail if you didn't make any money, so go figure she was cashing in-, there are people who work under the table, but her voice and branding is too well known. The price of fame will get you every time. Jesus on the mainline tell him what you want...Even when she gets out of jail she can secure more revenue then half the hoes out here stripping for a contract that aint gone no where

      Anonymous 1, you're a fucking idiot. Nicki Minaj is no way better than Lauryn. Lauryn is beautiful and Nicki is ugly with all of the plastic surgery she had.

      She hasn't been securing much of anything for years. Even if she manages to book a few shows, she's splitting that money.

      Tax money spent on paying cops to oppress Black and Brown people in the poor neighborhoods. (And to make devil white people more fat off their shameless behavior).

    Get her wack ass husband's infamous family to pay off her debts.

  • Factcheck

    This is not her residence. She was leasing this house to use as her studio and to house musicians she worked with. She was denied a permit to use the house as a studio last year. They have her in code violation and have been trying to evict her.

    lies.... why would threats against your family force you to not pay taxes?
