MediaTakeOut.com has some VERY SAD NEWS. Yesterday, legendary singer/rapper Lauryn Hill pleaded guilty in court to three counts of tax evasion on more than $1.5 million in income earned from 2005 to 2007.
Earlier this month, Lauryn gave a defiant explanation on her Tumblr page, when she blogged that by not filing taxes, she "embraced my right to resist a system intentionally opposing my right to whole and integral survival."
The government HATES when people (especially FAMOUS PEOPLE) claim that hey have a LEGAL RIGHT to avoid taxes. Usually when that happens - they THROW THE BOOK AT THEM like they did Wesley. Hill faces up to three years in prison and will be sentenced in November. We're told that she will DEFINITELY serve jail time.

I luv Lauren but if u hate your country so much move the f away!!! *** what did that man do 2 u??? Your heart & soul is dark!!!!
I feel no sympathy for her.
Carry that militant attitude out the country
Pay your *** taxes!!!!
Meanwhile Wesley Snipes is like "that wench better get 3 years just like me...."
I was on Twitter and saw some ingrates coming to her defense like idiots -
Know the laws!!!!!!!
And like the old adage goes "you do the crime you do the time"
Do not make this a racial issue
The most blurple man and transparent white man are serving time for these "white color crimes" - so STFU!
If you want ro dispute my comments
Feel free to chat on Twitter. I ain't checking all these paragraphs on here.. Lol
I already wrote a *** book on here.
I am just very passionate about fair treatment
Throw the book at Lauryn!!!!!
lmao is that her outfit for court? WTH happened to her? She looks like
Florida on Good Times but actually Florida looks better b/c she had
such a sunny disposition and positive spirit. I agree Lauren's soul
is BLACK...she should have her kids taken from her and thrown in
jail. lmao she is a hot mess....
too sad i feel bad for her
Not L boogie!!
Dam shame...check out " TRUTH STOP PLAYING" ON YOUTUBE
Noooooo!! I love her. Give her a *** break!!
Well dont drop the soap!!..kidding hope this not true she already on the edge i think jail may push her right on over
This brings new meaning to The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill-
I like her music but her attitude SUX! SHE IS FULL OF HERSELF! SHE IS NO BETTER THEN THE REST OF US! THAT NAPPY HEADED CRAZY BIITCHH SHOULD PAY HER TAXES EVERY SIX MONTHS! SHE *** THE INDUSTRY! WHEN U HAVE MONEY LIKE THAT U PAY EVERY 6MONTHS!!!
For someone who CAME across as lyrically intelligent/conscious, she surely has made some very poor life choices. It can happen to any one of us, but having 6 kids out of wedlock, whether you can afford them or not, and now this. It all makes me SMDH. I hate this for her still and I pray for her. While she was honest with why she hadn't paid her taxes, this is the same excuse Wesley gave. I once owed the IRS $800 and they acted like I owed them 800 million. Needless to say I paid that $800 and vowed to do my best not to owe them, but have them owe me!
yall get on my nerves. she aint the only one who hates the system shes just one of the few who is brave enough to fight the system. lauryn hill could step in the game and take over but she aint wit that industry life nomore, listen to her unplugged album she was tired of being a soulless puppet for the white man. they just mad cus she aint making them millions these days. and besides, shes saved now so she feels like she cant lose... no matter what they do
Keep Ya Head Up!
Well hopefully she'll take the time to write some new music while in jail....
Wake uuuuuuuuuuuuuup! She has a point (although I do PAY my taxes) where do you think the tax money collected by the IRS (private corporation) goes (Federal Reserve), and who do you think owns the Federal Reserve, Ill give you a clue its not the Federal Government (private bankers) whom our government borrows money from (you cant borrow money from yourself). A lot of people do not agree with the practice of tax collection because they KNOW excuse me think (big brother is watching) it is ILLEGAL (meaning-There is NO law on the books for american workers in the private sector to pay a tax on their labor and compensation for services). It is a big SCAM Sheeple!
Do Your Research!
-The worse type of enslavement is not knowing that you are in a state of enslavement.
@SuperNegra: I agree with you 100% I also believe that ever since Rohan dumped Lauryn and got engaged to another woman publicly;Lauryn sounds scorned and is extremely bitter about her life right now. I feel that if she don't like America,she need to pack up herself and her beautiful kids and move out. Its unfair we have to pay taxes and Lauryn got nerve to justify her refusal to do sobshe need to pay up!@Ransomed:I agree with you too! Esther Rolle does look better than Lauryn. She may also be suffering from postpartum depression as well. IMO Lauryn seemed to allow Rohan drag her way down after he split from her. I hope that she get herself together.
Well if you believe in something si strongly,than NO ONE,I mean NO ONE can tell you different.She's willing to go to jail for her beliefs,than KUDOS!!
As the old people say...laughing is catching. My heart is saddened for her. We all make bad choices in life and obviously this was a very bad choice she made. Very unfortunate ***.
***, that picture is rough. Will she be going to a men's or a women's facility? Ugh!
Anywho, she SHOULD get some time. I''m sure she'd be crying holy hell if people got militant and protested their 'right to survival' by never paying to attend her concerts and buy her music.
Don't drop the soap!
Maybe she will give us another classic.afterwards.. @datsthatish Instagram/Twitter. I fb. Atl bound

I am in agreement with your statement, but at the end of the day, taxes must be paid--plus God said to give Ceasar what he is do. Also, if I am not mistaken, the disciple Matthew was a tax collector way back then (sic).
Lauryn is beautiful. White men go crazy over black females who look like Lauryn--they broke their necks getting at Grace Jones.
This is a very big shame to see since she has all those children and mummy going to jail will be damaging for them. What do these arrogant rich and famous lot think they're above the law? Pay your *** taxes. Everyone else has to. You're not special
3 things in life are unavoidable, Death, Taxes & Unpaid Student Loans.
I'm so sick of the nazi elite taking our people down and we don't have a clue. They only going after her, because she spoke out against the zionist control matrix and since she resurfaced for summer jams they want to either kill you/blood sacrifice/ridicule you or lock you up. I'm tired of us letting them destroy our people they did it with big,pac,Mj,whitney and many others.
ya'll dumb as f.uck... She already said that she didn't pay her taxes as a protest....
Ok I'm a need her to stay up outta jamaica!!! She looks just like a jamaican school girl..lol love her but her *** cray!!! @darkadaberriluv I follow back
I hate to hear that for ol' gurl but "*** Uncle Sam" will lock ur *** up if you don't pay him his money. The IRS is one entity you don't wanna owe; after them, student loans.
who that used to b someone admits their broke now she knows she is look at the outfit she wore to court instead she makes government excuses for not paying and that does not keep u outa jail she knows that to shes not relevant anymore and would have payed if she could
You either pay uncle Sam or big Ricky
I'm balling in America on a WNBA budget. Visit YouTube and search for me, WURUNGA.
its crazy how all these artist have money but dont pay taxes -___- follow me on twitter @KobeBecford
What's wrong with you idiots!Why are you worried about how someone looks!Everyone should be proud she's standing up for her beliefs.Probably even willing to die for them.America as a whole should develop a backbone and fight the racist eletist 1percent (aka uncle Sam) who unfairly *** half or more of our hard earned money.It takes a very strong person to fight the GIANTS who unfairly stomp on the poor.WAKE UP AND STAND UP..
