Grammy-winning singer Lauryn Hill has been sentenced to three months in prison for failing to pay taxes on about $1 million in earnings.
She was also sentenced Monday in Newark to three additional months of home confinement.
The 37-year-old South Orange resident pleaded guilty last year in the case.
Before the sentencing, her attorney had said Hill had paid more than $970,000 to satisfy the state and federal tax liabilities.
Charlie Sheen supports a decision by child protective services to remove his twin sons from the custody of his ex-wife and have them live temporarily with another of his exes, actress Denise Richards, his spokesman said Friday.
Larry Solters wrote in a statement that Sheen will participate in court proceedings related to ex-wife Brooke Mueller’s custody of their 4-year-old sons. Mueller and Sheen were married in 2008 and divorced in 2011.
He knows Max and Bob are safe and in a stable, loving environment with Denise and the boys’ sisters, Solters wrote. Charlie will fully cooperate and fully participate in all proceedings.
Sheen and Richards have two daughters from their marriage, which ended in 2006.
‘Queen’ not amused
Silence for the queen, please.
A troupe of street drummers got a shock when Helen Mirren, dressed as Queen Elizabeth II, emerged from a London theater to berate them for disrupting her show.
Mirren is starring in The Audience, a drama about the weekly meetings between the queen and Britain’s prime ministers.
Outside noise became too much for the actress to bear during Saturday’s performance. Mirren acknowledged to the Daily Telegraph newspaper that she used less-than-royal language in her rant.
