Lauryn Hill’s publicist addresses tax lien allegations


As we reported late last week, word on the street is that former Fugee’s star Lauryn Hill is facing some pretty heavy charges from Uncle Sam … again.

According to RadarOnline,

“Tax documents filed on January 14 and obtained by Radar, the IRS has served Hill with seven separate liens for a grand total of $866,868.05.

The IRS claims that in 2005, Hill failed to pay $422,008.26. For 2006, she owes $19,838.75; 2007, $61,158.50; 2008, $58,405.71; 2009, $30,370.91; 2010, $13,247.73; and 2011, $261,838.19.”

Add it all up and that’s another lien of $867,000!

Now, Hill’s publicist, Kathryn Frazier of Biz3 Publicity, has come forward denying all claims altogether. She states, “Contrary to media gossip (fact checking seems to be a dying art form) there are no changes in Ms. Hill’s legal status. Ms. Hill has finished her sentence, has been fulfilling her agreement with the IRS, and is taking care of all outstanding matters in regards to this situation. She is not in jeopardy of any further charges. The press is reporting on paperwork that had recently been filed, and has now become public record.”

Great news for Hill! Now let’s hope and pray that Hill can get her finances together. – ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie
