  6. I’m not throwing shade, but… June 29, 2012

    I feel for the kids, especially the youngest one, 3 years without your mum would be harsh and the fact that your (the older kids) whatless dad is swirling it down with his new wife in europe when he couldn’t put a ring on your mothers finger….
    Anyway, i hope that she has a good network of people to support her through this time

  7. YALLDONEDIDIT June 29, 2012

  10. JoArmy&CarrieUnderwoodArmy June 29, 2012

    Aww, Dislike or w/e but im laughing at this…idk why i find it funny but i feel for her tho….poor lauryn.

  11. Alexander June 29, 2012

    She should’ve not endorsed Nicki Minaj, but the real news is she has taken a lesser sentence to avoid a 10 year stint.
    Damn what happened to all her money? She sold millions of copies of No Education CD.

    • BLAK JIGGA June 29, 2012

      Wbat the hell? Nicki Minaj? Yo Dont try to say that this is karma for L – Boogie. Do you know how many black stars get targeted by The IRS? White stars always get help when they mess up. They don’t go to jail like Weasley Snipes. God bless, Laurent.

      • BLAK JIGGA June 29, 2012

        Sorry, Lauren.

    • OpD2 June 29, 2012

      were you born d-mn are something i really think so.

  12. Ugh June 29, 2012

    Oh Damn

  13. Oggie ‘Singer’ June 29, 2012

    this is awful… 🙁 she has a family her poor children

  14. royalkev June 29, 2012

    This is devastating news. My heart goes out to her family and my prayers are with all of them. This year is turning out to be a bad one for so many good ones. 🙁

  15. POP ROYALTY ( Révolution) June 29, 2012

    oh s*** , someone help her.

    that s*** is sad. 🙁

  16. monstarebel June 29, 2012

    Why would I feel bad for someone who made millions not payin there taxes?….b**** its yo fault NEXT!

  17. MaZ June 29, 2012

    They’re trying to kill her slowly like they did with Michael & Whitney.

    They humiliate big name artists and kill them slowly, It”s part of their agenda.

    I feel Lauryn and Mary J. Blige are the next ones.

    • D June 29, 2012

      I just don’t understand why she thought she didn’t have to pay them. We all do! People with waaaay less than her have to pay them too. Sucks about the jail time. It’s like cant she just pay a large fine or something? But…you have to pay your taxes if you want to live here so. No one made her NOT pay them. That was her bright idea, and it didn’t work!

    • OpD2 June 29, 2012

      next time when you descide to leave a d-mb comment like that change your avatar pic.

      • MaZ June 29, 2012

        If you’re not happy with my comments and avatar pic you can pass to the next one b****!

    • mob June 30, 2012


      They have even resorted to tearing down the young ones! It’s a sin and a shame to witness! I said it in the past and I’ll say it again, TPB “assassinated” Michael & Whitney. The continuous systematic public ridicule and humiliation led to the conditions which caused their deaths!

      Ppl can say whatever but it’s true!

  18. TheUltimateShade June 29, 2012

    *Waits for stupid Illuminati comments*….

  19. Viciousss June 29, 2012

    Smh, I understand why she said she did it but honestly…no excuses. She has babies to care for and instead of having their mother she’s gonna be in jail under some back tax b*******.

    Celebrities need to stop f****** around and pay their taxes. You, me, and everyone else has to pay theirs or we know IRS will be on our ass and we sure don’t make millions.

    Sigh, what a waste. She’s an amazing singer and it sounded like she was ready for a comeback.

  20. Bitchiwilldraaagyou June 29, 2012

    Let face it…the illuminati set her up bc she wanted out. THATS JUST THE FACTS B******!!

  21. MISHKA June 29, 2012

    I want to feel sorry for her but I rather feel sorry for her kids.

    That letter she wrote did nothing to me, honestly. Just pay your dues, and keep it moving. We’re in 2012, artists should know how to keep their OWN life on track.

    What’s the point for us to stan for them if they can’t back their rich a**es up? Sorry, I can’t.

  22. TheUltimateShade June 29, 2012

    Wait…Hold Up…No shade? You always shade Lil Kim about her not paying her taxes..Yet Lauryn is actually going to jail for not paying her taxes but you don’t wanna shade her?

    • BLAK JIGGA June 29, 2012

      Kim made a deal with the IRS to clear up her debt. They could have let Lauryn a girl with mental issues clear her debt too. She didn’t mean no harm. The girl is really sick in the head. I said it before, folks got their issues. They just seem to be harder on black celebrities than white ones.

      • BLAK JIGGA June 29, 2012

        But the shade, Sam bullies Kim and has no respect for her. He probably wishes Kim was the one in prison for tax evasion. Unfortunately for Sam, Kim is paying her debt down. Sorry Sam.

  23. Alexander June 29, 2012

    Wyclef Jean stoled millions on Haiti relief, now why didn’t dude help her out?
    File your taxes and pay them, make plans to pay it down.

    • jamilaa June 30, 2012

      geezzzzz ALEXANDER!! its stole not stoled?? buhahahaha r u nigerian ?? cos u write like one LMAO

  24. DIGGER BEY June 29, 2012

    Poor Lauryn. I feel bad for her and especially her kids. Like others are saying, the IRS dont play about them taxes. For the life of me; I just dont understand why these celebs try to hide some of their earnings. They will always found out. Especially if ur wealthy. @ The Ultimate shade I noticed that too. Its never funny to make fun of someones money matters. Whether it b Lil Kim or Lauryn. We dont know what kind of problems theyre having. GOD dont like ugly! Look @ MC Hammer and TLC. Just because u have sold millions of records. That doesnt mean, everything is fine. This Lauryn, isnt the 1990s Lauryn, making a boatload of money.

  25. 12345 June 29, 2012

    shall the lord bless her and get her out of the devil circle

    • mob June 30, 2012


  26. BLAK JIGGA June 29, 2012

    I hope they cut her a break. She got little kids and I heard her man left her. I hope she got good people around her.

  27. mob June 30, 2012

    Okay, I am getting ready to break down and CRY FOR MY SISTER!

    Say what you will about her but this is a bad “sistah”! I would like to know the details of this case. Did she refuse to pay her taxes or did she put her financial trust in the hands of a crooked accountant? DAMN, DAMM, DAMN NOT L-BOOGIE TOO! 0_O….I’m gonna need ppl to just make music and stay the hell out of ail!

    *Long and sad face about this here! 🙁 *

  28. Iwishabitchwould June 30, 2012

    ILL-U-MIN-F******-ATI….IF America and the public as a f****** mass does not wake up…stop being stupid…and know that its not to far fetched to be true! Look at MJ, DMX, Tupac, Eminem, and the number of politicians that died because they were about to air out their dirty laundry of worldwide control. S*** IS TRUE PEOPLE! Wake the f*** up…I pray for lauren…if you dont do s*** their way…they control the media, court systems, etc so you against their plans of domination…you pay the price…#sad.

  29. -_- June 30, 2012

    Oh please!! Should have paid her taxes like the rest of us. What makes her so special that she thinks she cam refuse to pay taxes and get away with it? No sympathy from me, at all.

    • jamilaa June 30, 2012

      shut tha f*** up! EVIL B****! die nd rote in deepest path of HELL!
