Up next…Eight-time Grammy-winning singer Lauren Hill.
She pled guilty today, for not paying federal taxes on more than $1.5 million dollars that were earned over a 3 year period. She was actually charged 3 weeks ago, and has admitted to failing to file tax returns from 2005-2007. She faces a maximum of one-year sentence on each of the 3 counts.
SIDENOTE: Her fashion is on point! I love the multi-color sling back shoes, the bag, and the jacket. It all goes together in a weird kind of way, right?
Okay, back to the Tax Charges…during the hearing, it was indicated that she plans to pay back the taxes.
You’ll most remember Lauren Hill from the group THE FUGEES.
FROM DAILYMAIL.CO.UK – After the charges were brought, Hill posted a long statement on her Tumblr page that decried pop culture’s “climate of hostility, false entitlement, manipulation, racial prejudice, sexism and ageism.” She explained that she hasn’t paid taxes since she withdrew from society to guarantee the safety and well-being of herself and her family.
