Wyclef Jean Discusses Lauryn Hill's Tax Issues, Reveals Book In The Works
Wyclef Jean reveals he hasn't spoken to Lauryn Hill in "a minute."
Though fans have been waiting for a Fugee reunion longer than Dr. Dre has been promising Detox, the latest words from member Wyclef Jean are less than encouraging.
In an interview with Montreality, the rapper/producer discussed his former co-star, Lauryn Hill.
"Actually, you know, I ain't speak to Lauryn," revealed Clef, who famously had a falling out with Hill. "It's been a minute."
Clef also touched on Hill's tax issues. "I heard about the little drama she got in the news, wishing her better on that. You know? Actually, I was on the phone with Pras earlier. It's all good. Nothing but love for the Fugees."
Lauryn Hill currently faces three years in prison for intentionally failing to file taxes starting in 2005. Between 2005 and 2007, the singer earned $1.8 million, but chose not to file taxes.
Lauryn defended the decision, cryptically offering the explanation that it was "necessary to withdraw from society, in order to guarantee the safety and well-being of myself and my family."
Wyclef also revealed that he is working on a book. "First book's coming out in September. ...My first book is called Purpose. Because that's the first thing I did, right? I had to find my purpose. That's what a lot of us go through. ...It's like a biography of Wyclef."
