    Where are the big guns Jay-Z, Diddy, Wil Smith,Rihanna, Beyonce, Oprah. These people are making big money and could afford to help without putting a dent in their monies.

    That probably made the judge even more certain that she deserves to go to jail. Some of us are poorer than she’ll ever be and dont have a host of celebrity friends.

    And what exactly did those letters say?

    “Dear Judge, I know Ms. Hill made millions of dollars and didn’t pay her taxes but you see she’s a great artist and she makes beautiful music so please don’t lock her up”

    Sorry, no sympathy. If you choose not to pay then be strong enough to accept your punishment. There’s 0 confusion here and all the mysterious talk from Lauryn doesn’t change anything.
