Small Bite: @MsLaurynHill ‘s legal troubles get worse. #UglySituation

Full Platter:

They say, "mo' money, mo' problems," but what about "mo' money, mo' taxes, mo' problems"? As if Ms. Hill's legal troubles couldn't get any worse, the state of New Jersey is adding on to her legal woes with a claim that she failed to pay $440,000 worth of taxes to the state.

She recently pled guilty to tax evasion, a federal crime, and will reportedly face three years in prison. The civil judgement, which was filed on June 14, stated that Ms. Hill is responsible for $446,386 worth of state taxes. However, the kinda-sorta good news is that the new tax problem is not yet a criminal matter, keyword being "yet."

We'll see how this new bit unfolds.

In the meantime, leave your thoughts below and check out the full story here.
