Lauryn Hill's Landlord

SQUATTER?

We Hardly Knew Her!

4/19/2013 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0418-lauryn-hill-gettyGrammy Award-winning R&B legend Lauryn Hill is being sued for eviction ... the good news, she's probably going to prison so she won't need that place anyway.

Lauryn's been renting a South Orange, New Jersey mansion since 2009.  Things went south when she stopped paying rent last month, so her landlord ran to court and filed a legal ultimatum -- pay your rent NOW, or get out. 

Lauryn hasn't paid, so the eviction lawsuit is now full steam ahead.

Lauryn will be sentenced next week for tax fraud.  She pled guilty and now faces several years in federal prison.

Nothing like moving from a big house to the big house.

I don't understand why people think they can screw the government get away with it. I understand wanting to, but they'll find you, if it takes a week or 5 years and a week, you're gonna get caught. Extreme stupidity.

What else would you expect? These people are less than human, savages. Ever heard the expression, "****** Rich"? She spent it faster than she made it. Good riddance to bad garbage

Karma sucks huh? That's what she gets for saying she would rather let kids starve than have white peeps listen to her music. I heard her say it when I was a kid and I haven't listened to her ever since. No big loss there....obviously.

Everybody has trouble in their life at least once. Instead of talking about the lady like she was a persona non gratia we should be saying; I hope she get's herself out of the jam she's in.

Harvey Levin is the biggest idiot. He makes the same tired ass joke on People's Court. Anything that ends in "er" he adds "we hardly knew her!"
