Lauryn Hill Saves New Jersey Home From $1 Million Tax Foreclosure

You know you’d better, WATCH OUT! The talented singer/songwriter, Lauryn Hill just saved her 5,000 square foot home in New Jersey by settling her nearly $1 million tax debt. In 2018, Hill was sued by Rothman Realty LLC for non-payment of the tax bill for her suburban home. By April of last year, the total swelled to $993,901!

Hill never responded to the foreclosure suit which gave Rothman Realty rights to begin the foreclosure. As of now, Rothmans Realty and Hill have settle their tax debt and were able to make a deal out of court, according to Bossip. The site reports,

Rothman Realty asked the judge to dismiss the case, because the company and Hill were able to make a deal outside of court. Lawyers for the real estate company said in court papers that the matter was “amicably adjusted,” however did not detail what the terms of the settlement were.

Hill originally purchased her South Orange home for $430,000 in 1997 during the height of her career with the legendary group, Fugees. The property, sits on half an acre and is now worth an estimated $1.06 million!

The year of 2018 was not the singer’s best year, as we previously reported, Lauryn pulled another late stunt in November. Hill took to Twitter to apologize to her fans in Brussels and Paris, blaming the curfew, time difference and other matters for her tardiness.

“Dear Brussels and Paris, we apologize for the late start. We’re working through the kinks and moving he productions to Europe, with time changes and curfew restrictions, we’ve had a few challenges in these shows. With deep gratitude I come on stage to perform an album that means so much to so many. Every day we push past inertia to present something sincere. Thank you for coming, supporting and of your patience and understanding. We’re excited about this entire European run, and looking forward to the show tomorrow!”
