The former Fugees frontwoman will spend a further three months under house arrest and nine months on supervised release once she is freed from federal prison. At a hearing on Monday (05May13), a judge in Newark, New Jersey, ordered Hill to report to prison by 8 July (13), reports TMZ.com. The ruling came just one day after Hill's lawyer confirmed the star had paid off more than 00,000 (£562,000) in tax debts and penalties. Last year (12), the singer pleaded guilty to three charges of failing to file her tax returns between 2005 and 2007. During the hearing, Hill handed a bizarre statement to the judge, in which she compared her situation to slavery. It read: "I was put into a system I didn't know the nature of... I'm a child of former slaves. I got into an economic paradigm and had that imposed on me. She added, "I sold 50 million units... (and) now I'm up here paying a tax debt. If that's not likened to slavery, I don't know what is." (PAW/WNWCZM/KL) Lauryn Hill performing at the '25th annual Martin Luther King Jr concert series' at Wingat

(MC/WNWCZM/KL) ** WENN PICTURE CAPTION 19 AUGUST 2004 ============================================= ========================= THE RE-INVENTION OF LAURYN HILL - FUNKY NEW LOOK FOR SOUL DIVA! ============================================= ============== Judging by the colour of her natty new slacks, it seems Lauryn Hill is set for a purple reign in 2005! The soul star - whose first big break came when she starred alongside Whoopi Goldberg in the movie Sister Act 2 - was most definitely 'Back in the Habit' yesterday as she strutted her funky stuff around New York's trendy Meatpacking district on the set of her new video. Sporting a cool new retro seventies image, she looks resplendent with flair-collared Mack, vivid make-up and an afro-hairdo. The ex-Fugees singer, who won two Grammys for her 1998 debut The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, has not released any new music since her live Unplugged double-album two years ago. Rumours have abounded of a Fugees reunion with fellow members Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel. Whilst Fugees fans may remain disappointed on that score, they will certainly

CHRIS BROWN BREAKS UP WITH GIRLFRIEND KARRUECHE TRAN OVER RIHANNA R&B star CHRIS BROWN has split from his girlfriend KARRUECHE TRAN so he can continue building a friendship with his ex RIHANNA. The Kiss Kiss hitmaker broke up with Rihanna three years ago after he infamously left her battered and bruised during an argument on the eve of the 2009 Grammy Awards. He was charged with assault, placed on probation, and ordered to stay away from his ex, and he attempted to move on from the troubled romance by dating model Karrueche Tran. However, Brown and the Umbrella singer have since reignited their friendship and the restraining order was lifted last year (11), prompting the former lovers to team up twice in the studio. They have both been in New York this week (begs01Oct12) and have been spotted hanging out together on three separate occasions, sparking rumours of a possible romantic reconciliation. The strongest sign yet came on Wednesday night (03Oct12) when they were photographed in the VIP section at Jay-Z's concert in Brooklyn, with Brown draping his arm around the back of the Bajan beauty's seat. Now it has emerged that Brown has called off his relationship with Tran, citing Rihanna as the reason for their break-up. In a statement to HollywoodLife.com, he writes, "I have decided to be single to focus on my career. I love Karrueche very much but I don't want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna. I'd rather be single allowing us to both be happy in our lives." Tran hinted at a potential break-up on Wednesday night with a cryptic Twitter.com post which read, "Bye baby". Rihanna and Brown have shown off their continued friendship over the past few months, with the two partying together during a vacation in France and sharing a quick kiss at the MTV Video Music Awards in September (12). Rihanna also called him the "love of her life" during a U.S. TV interview with Oprah Winfrey in August (12).

*file photo* * ROCK STAR HELM DIES THE BAND star LEVON HELM has lost his battle with throat cancer. The much-loved rocker died on Thursday (19Apr12) in New York, aged 71. Helm's longtime guitarist pal Larry Campbell announced the sad news in a statement to RollingStone.com, which reads: He passed away peacefully at 1:30 this afternoon surrounded by his friends and bandmates. All his friends were there, and it seemed like Levon was waiting for them. Ten minutes after they left we sat there and he just faded away. He did it with dignity. It was even two days ago they thought it would happen within hours, but he held on. It seems like he was Levon up to the end, doing it the way he wanted to do it. He loved us, we loved him. The multi-Grammy Award winner was born on 26 May, 1940, in Arkansas, and knew from the age of six he was destined to become a rock star after seeing Bill Monroe & his Blue Grass Boys live. By the time he was eight he could play guitar and he quickly progressed to the drums. Helm began playing in clubs at the age of 17 with his first proper band The Hawks, who became Bob Dylan's backing group for a short time. The Hawks eventually became The Band and they would go on to be known as one of the most influential rock bands of all time. The group split in 1976. While he was primarily known as The Band's drummer, Helm also played the guitar and mandolin and sang on some of the group's biggest tracks, including The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down and The Weight. He would rejoin The Band with original members Garth Hudson, Rick Danko and Richard Manuel in the 1990s. Helm was first diagnosed with throat cancer over a decade ago and was rendered speechless for a period, but he returned to music as a member of the Midnight Rambles. He also recorded several Grammy-winning solo albums and appeared in a number of films - Helm was the narrator in The Right Stuff and he played the father of country legend Loretta Lynn in the biopic Coal Miner's Daughter. News of the seriousness of his latest health crisis spread last month (Mar12), when Helm was forced to cancel a series of concert appearances. Estranged bandmate Robbie Robertson then offered his prayers to the drummer during a speech at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Saturday (14Apr12). Robertson put aside a 35-year feud with Helm on Sunday (15Apr12) and visited his old The Band bandmate in hospital. The rocker's wife Sandy and daughter Amy posted a message on his website on Tuesday (17Apr12) asking fans to send prayers and love to the stricken rocker as he battled through the final stages of the disease.

The ex-98 Degrees star and his TV presenter wife got married in a secret ceremony in July last year (11) and they announced on U.S. TV on Monday (05Mar12) that Minnillo is pregnant. Lachey tells Live! With Kelly, She was in New York and I was in the Bahamas. She went to the store and got a pregnancy test and it came back positive. We're having a baby!... This is the one thing that more than any other I've looked forward to, and it's overwhelming. Lachey said the couple has already discussed a name for the child, adding, If it's a girl, I think it might be Sophia. If it's a boy, I'm not sure. He also joked his wife's baby bump was initially blamed on too many calories, saying, It just looked like she had eaten a really big burrito for a while... She loves, she craves Mexican food right now. She could eat a burrito a day so you can imagine what our house smells like right about now. The baby is due later this year (12).
