Lauryn Hill has been granted court permission to tour

Lauryn Hill Leaves Her NYC Hotel Wearing A Long Dress.Lauryn Hill has been granted court permission to tour later this year, despite being on a three-month house arrest stint as part of her sentence for tax evasion.

 

The former Fugees singer – who was released from jail last week – was required to spend three months on home detention as part of her sentence for tax evasion, but sought permission from a judge to go on the road between November 15 until December 31, and her request has been granted.

 

However, the ‘Ready of Not’ hitmaker must get all the details for each show – including dates, cities and her hotel accommodation – approved by her probation officer.

 

After the agreed period, Lauryn must return home to complete her sentence, according to website TMZ.

 

Lauryn – who released a new single, ‘Consumerism’, ahead of her release last week – was jailed on July 8 after failing to pay taxes of more than $1.8 million for income she earned between 2005 and 2007.

 

Her sentence also took into account income and tax losses for 2008 and 2009, taking the total to approximately $2.3 million.

 

The 38-year-old singer’s initial sentence of a year in jail was reduced after she asked for leniency because of her charity work and estrangement from the music industry. She also paid off $970,000 of the $2.3 million tax bill before heading to jail.
