Former Fugee Lauryn Hill could be facing jail for failing to pay her taxes, again.

The singer was due to be sentenced for charges dating back to 2005-07 yesterday however she has been given an extra two weeks to pay back some of the $968,000 outstanding.

Following the success of her standalone single 'Black Rage' last year and an extensive US tour with Nas, reports suggest Hill will be signing a new deal with Sony worth around one million dollars, with the star taking out a loan of $650,000 to begin paying back just some of what is owed in order to avoid a custodial sentence.
