lauryn hill taxesLauryn Hill’s tax evasion struggle just revealed a new twist in her musical career. While in court today it was revealed that the former Fugees singer has a new record deal.

Reports TMZ:

Lauryn Hill just bought herself a couple weeks of freedom.

The R&B legend was to be sentenced to prison today after pleading guilty to blowing off her 2005-2007 tax returns … but the sentencing was moved to May 6 to give Lauryn a chance to repay a chunk of her $968,000 tax debt.

Hill’s attorney said the singer recently signed a million-dollar recording deal with Sony … she was also planning to take out a $650,000 loan to put toward the bill.

Hill faces several years in prison … but her attorney is hoping for probation.

A pricey new record deal would certainly help her cause to pay Uncle Sam. Late last year she hit the road with Nas for the “Life Is Good/Black Rage” tour.
