: 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.
