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 get why she just won't do another album. That'll be a way to at least pay your bills! Why does some sort of outside influence have a say in whether or not you're making music. Especially if that's what you love to do! I don't get her!

I guess The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill wasn't just the title of an album...

Illuminati wanted her but she refused, that's why her career went south.

It's not like she's months behind on the rent so it's no big loss for the landlord. He had a good tenant for 4 years. He's lucky.

This is a house she used as a studio. The city denied her permit to use the property as a studio last year. They have her in violation of city code; therefore, the have been trying to evict her.

This is not her residence. She was leasing this house to use as her studio and to house musicians she worked with. She was denied a permit to use the house as a studio last year. They have her in code violation and have been trying to evict her.

Useless t w a t. She helped to foist on the music industry talentless singers who try to bleat like a billy goat, like her. Glad she'll be out of commission. Hopefully her clones will follow her. F,g bitch.
