Lauryn Hill -- Sued for Eviction

Grammy 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.
