Lauryn Hill Faces Eviction as her Sentencing Nears

Things are not looking good for The Fugees member

If Lauryn Hill ever records another album, the title of this one should be ‘The Misfortunes of Lauryn Hill’ as the troubles continue to mount for the troubled artist.

According to South Orange Village Counsel Steve Rother, Lauryn Hill was due in tenancy court earlier this week as she faces eviction from her South Orange mansion. This is just the latest in several reported miscues for the former Fugees member.

She had reportedly earned more than $1.6 million between 2005 and 2007, yet never paid taxes on that amount. The 37-year-old Hill entered a guilty plea to three counts of tax fraud last June after admitting she intentionally failed to file tax returns for that time period.

She is scheduled to be sentenced in her tax evasion case April 22 where she faces up to a year in jail and a $100,000 fine on each count.

    Lauryn Hill won’t be homeless. The couple that rents her the million-dollar mansion in South Orange have filed eviction proceedings against her, but another lawsuit filed against Hill by the town reveals that she doesn’t actually live there.

    Hill is accused of using the Irving Avenue mansion for rehearsals and to house visiting musicians, a violation of zoning ordinances.

    The town filed the lawsuit in Superior Court in Essex County against both Hill and her landlords, Phillip and Diane Faillace, in November for allegedly running a business out of a home, which is a zoning violation, according to town lawyer Steven C. Rother.

    The lawsuit may have been the trigger in the other lawsuit filed against Hill by her landlords. reported today that Hill stopped paying rent last month, which led the couple to begin eviction proceedings. Court records show that the Faillaces, who now live in England and purchased the Irving Avenue mansion in 2003 for $950,000, filed a tenancy case against Hill March 5. Lawyers for Hill and her landlords could not be reached for comment.

    The town alleges in its lawsuit that Hill, who owns two other homes in South Orange, rents the Irving Avenue property but does not live there. Neighbors have reported that musicians rehearse in the home “all hours of the day and night,” and the lawsuit says the driveway is used as long-term parking for other performers and personnel.….m edium=twitter
