Lauryn Hill just pled guilty to a major federal crime … admitting she intentionally failed to file several tax returns in the past decade — and now the former Fugees singer faces 3 years in prison.
Hill pled guilty today to three counts of failure to file tax returns for the years 2005, 2006, and 2007 — when she earned more than $1.8 million.
When the judge asked if Hill “intentionally and willingly” failed to file the returns, she replied, “Yes.”
In addition to the 3 years behind bars, Hill could be smacked with $75,000 in fines.
Hill was released on $150,000 bail. Her sentencing hearing is set for November.
I think he hit his peak and should just start directing. Honestly who wants to see a 6 foot 5 man running around the screen threading to bust someone’s @ss anymore lol! Granted ‘Good Deeds’ needed a Madea character in it. Anyways the film is supposedly getting not so great reviews. Below is an example of what is being said. By the way I didn’t even know Denise Richards is in this movie. Smdh…
Madea’s Witness Protection review: Protect us from Tyler Perry
As the incredibly awkward title suggests, Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Witness Protection is less a movie than it is an exercise in product branding.
It’s a product that has long passed its sell-by date, not that this matters to writer/director/producer Perry and his unaccountably loyal audience.
This is the seventh issue from the Madea franchise at Perry’s Atlanta film factory, wherein this 6-foot-5 male yet again dons fat padding, wig and glasses to play a sassy African-American matriarch.
Besides the title stereotype, Madea Simmons, Perry also plays her brother Joe, who lives and bickers with her in a large Atlanta home with unmown grass and pink flamingos out front. The unstoppable Perry also plays Joe’s son Brian, a federal prosecutor who’s just trying to do some good.
Any hope that Perry might be running out of ideas or steam is drowned out by the ka-ching! of his mighty Madea cash register, which has only its good nature going for it.
The sole inspiration he needed for this film was a news report about the arrest of Ponzi fund scammer Bernie Madoff. What if Madoff were put under the suspicious gaze of cantankerous Madea in her all-black neighbourhood?
Is it the lighting or was she always this light? I almost didn’t recognize her!
