B - Lauryn Hill Denies Squatting Rumours

R&B star Lauryn Hill has taken to her blog to clear up allegations she has been squatting in her New Jersey home.

Last week (19Apr13), it was reported the former Fugees frontwoman is facing eviction after she was hit with a lawsuit from her landlord over claims she has failed to pay rent for her house in South Orange.

Hill has since taken to her Tumblr blog to deny the accusations, writing, "I'd like to set the record straight: I am not squatting, and I do not owe any money to my landlord. I have always stayed current on rent. I was raised in South Orange, which is why these allegations are not only false, but insulting.

"I am in talks with the town about resolving an unrelated issue, regarding how I use my home to work on my music, which has nothing to do with my financial obligations. Won't it be great when real journalism returns to replace inaccurate tabloid harassment."

Hill is currently working to resolve her financial problems, and has been given until next month to start paying back tax debts amounting to more than $1.6 million (£1 million).
