She said 'yes' when asked whether she 'intentionally and willingly' failed to file federal returns in between 2005 and 2007.

Lauryn Hill has just pled guilty to evading taxes. The former Fugees singer was charged on three counts of failing to file federal returns for the years 2005, 2006 and 2007 despite an income of more than $1.8 million.

Hill admitted to "intentionally and willingly" failed to file the returns. Facing up to 3 years behind bars and $75,000 fines, the singer was released on $150,000 bail and is due to be back in court for her sentencing hearing in November.

Hill responded to the charges earlier this month in a lengthy statement, saying hat those years were the time when she "removed herself and her family from society, in order to keep them safe, healthy, and free from danger."

Hill had a gross income from the recording and film royalties of around $818,000 in 2005, around $222,000 in 2006, and more than $761,000 in 2007.
