New financial troubles have met the icon.
Ms. Lauryn Hill is one of the most beloved artists in the hearts of Hip Hop fans. When reports of financial troubles concerning the rapper arise, many of those hearts sink. A new report states that Lauryn Hill may lose her New Jersey mansion.
Hill has defaulted on her taxes once again, resulting in her home being set into foreclosure. Late last year, Rothman Realty LLC filed a lawsuit against Hill. According to this suit, the artist failed to pay taxes on her property in 2003. Rothman Realty LCC then acquired the tax lien and fulfilled the responsibility of paying the tax bills which totaled $993,901 as of April 2018.
The defendant did not respond to the foreclosure suit, so Rothman Realty LCC ultimately succeeded in getting a judge to make her mansion's foreclosure official. The property will now be placed for sale at a Sheriff's auction in order to repay Rothman Reality for the tax payments they have made to date.
Lauryn Hill had purchased her South Orange home in 1997 at the peak of her success with The Fugees. The 5,000 square foot mansion set on half an acre was valued at $430,000 at the time. The property is now worth an estimated $1.06 million.
