Lauryn Hill Denies New IRS Trouble

It was rumored last week...
Pitchfork reports that Lauryn Hill has denied a report from Radar Online that claimed she was in trouble with the IRS for $866,868.05 for tax evasions from 2005 to 2011. She previosuly spent three months in prison for the crime last year after she didn't pay on about a million in earnings. After being released in October, she has been on tour.
Hills publicist Kathryn Frazier of Biz3 Publicity says that the paperwork Radar Online reported on was old. She said: "Contrary to media gossip (fact checking seems to be a dying art-form) there are no changes in Ms. Hill's legal status. Ms. Hill has finished her sentence, has been fulfilling her agreement with the IRS, and is taking care of all outstanding matters in regards to this situation. She is not in jeopardy of any further charges. The press is reporting on paperwork that had recently been filed, and has now become public record."
