Really Ms. Hill? That’s the best you can come up with?!

With a judge expected to rule on her tax evasion case this month on April 22nd, the one-time Fugee member has come forth with a revelation as to why she hadn’t paid her taxes for the years of 2005-07, in which she earned $1.8 Millions Dollars.

The reason she decided to keep all of the money to herself, and not split it with good ‘ole Uncle Sam is because, “she withdrew from society at large due to what she perceived as manipulation and very real threats to herself and her family.”

She’s asking the court to consider a bunch of other factors before her sentencing, including her claim that she can pay off the debt much faster if she’s not behind bars.
