Lauryn Hill to go to jail?

DESPITE being the only talented one in The Fugees (no-one remembers Pras and Wyclef’s obvious lack of talent is underlined in stealing his career off him), Lauryn Hill hasn’t been having a good time of it since making one of the best debut LPs in history.

Becoming something of a recluse, being accused of racism and generally looking a little erratic, Lauryn could now be going to jail.

It has been reported that Hill has been charged with failing to pay tax on more than $1.8m.

This is the first time a reunion has been suggested, but this time, producer Jerry “Wonda” Duplessis is weighing in, saying that they may be getting back together.

Why should we trust someone called Duplessis?
