Lauryn Hill released from US prison
Lauryn Hill's attorney has said she has been released from federal prison after serving time for failing to pay taxes.
The singer left the facility in Connecticut today (October 4). Her attorney Nathan Hochman said he hasn't had a chance to speak to his client yet.
Hill pleaded guilty last year to not paying taxes on more than 1.5 million dollars earned from 2005 to 2007. She was sentenced in July to serve three months. Under terms of her plea agreement, she'll spend the next three months under home confinement. She lives in New Jersey.
Hill, a former member of the Fugees and winner of multiple Grammys, has said she stopped paying taxes after she dropped out of the music business to protect herself and her children, who now number six.
