According to reports, Lauryn Hill has been sentenced to 3 months in prison for failing to pay taxes on about $1 million in earnings.

The Associated Press reports that in a statement to the judge, she expressed that she had the intention of paying the taxes, but due to a period of time where she wasn't involved with the music business, she was unable to. AP also reports that Hill had paid over $970,000 to satisfy state and federal tax liabilities, according to her attorney.

She has also been sentenced to 3 additional months of home confinement.
