Son to Late Bob Marley & Lauryn Hill’s baby daddy Rohan Marley may not be walking down the aisle anytime soon. Plus Lauryn pleads GUILTY to tax evasion and could be facing three years behind bars! More details below…………..
Rohan Marley and Isabeli Fontana have postponed their wedding. Apparently, the Brazilian model feels a wedding at this very point in time will ruin “their intimate & romantic moment” they’re having. Alrighty. Also, her two kids have still yet to meet Rohan’s umpteen kids. And it seems to be a point of contention.
The Brazilian model will only postpone the ceremony because she says the two are in an intimate and romantic moment and do not want to interrupt the sound stage.
Isabel has two kids, Zion, age 9, and Luke, 6. Although the model and singer is trying to get her kids to meet up with Rohan’s other children, they pretty much do not want a lot of contact with the new family. She said the boys just want to stay with friends.
Perhaps Rohan, who has an army of kids with Lauryn Hill, is also going to take some time to help Lauryn deal with her current tax and IRS woes. Or maybe not!
Speaking of lauryn…After the Feds put out notice earlier this month, via legal charges, that she owed them for three years of taxes, the singer has now plead guilty to tax evasion.
Lauryn’s lawyer, Nathan Hockman, blamed the government for “targeting her since she’s a celebrity” instead of taking responsibility for failing to pay taxes.
“There are many people in society who fail to file their taxes on time who only face civil liability. They chose Ms. Hill in particular because of who she was.”
Well that explains why she thought her lengthy posting as to why she didn’t pay her taxes–citing that she had “withdrawn form society” and let the government know already she wasn’t paying–was a valid explanation.
The New Jersey News described today’s hearing saying:
Hill spoke little at her hearing today and stood attentively with her arms crossed in front of her chest when the judge first addressed her. She appeared in a white button-down shirt, blue blazer and long coral skirt.
She did, however, take issue with two statements made by U.S. District Judge Michael Shipp that she discussed in whispers with Hockman at length.
Hill raised her concerns with Hockman when the judge asked her if anyone had forced her to enter a guilty plea either directly or indirectly, and again when the judge ordered her to undergo mental health counseling as directed by pre-trial intervention services.
Through her attorney, Hill asked the judge to clarify what he meant by the words “directly” and “directed.”
“Ms. Hill is very particular about language,” Hockman said. “Language is very important to Ms. Hill.”
Well I hope it gets handled without jail time being a resolution.
