Lauryn Hill has been in the media a lot lately and all the attention has been centered around her finances.
According to her Tumbler page, Hill shut down rumors that surfaced last week hinting that she was facing eviction from her New Jersey mansion after falling behind on her rent to the tune of a couple hundred thousand. She made the following statement:
“YET ANOTHER MEDIA INACCURACY…I’d like to set the record straight: I am not squatting, and I do not owe any money to my landlord. I have always stayed current on rent. I was raised in South Orange, which is why these allegations are not only false, but insulting. I am in talks with the town about resolving an unrelated issue, regarding how I use my home to work on my music, which has nothing to do with my financial obligations. Won’t it be great when real journalism returns to replace inaccurate tabloid harassment.”
Hill is also currently awaiting sentencing for a tax evasion case, we hope everything works out for her.
