Lauryn Hill Eviction Lawsuit: Star Settles And Agrees To Vacate New Jersey Residence

After being issued an eviction lawsuit from her New Jersey landlord in April, Lauryn Hill has reportedly responded to the dispute by vacating the property.

According to TMZ, the eight-time Grammy Award-winning singer has reached a settlement by agreeing to pay $7,000 in rent and move out of the South Orange residence by May 31.

The 38-year-old was originally sued, along with her landlord, by the North New Jersey suburb for breaching a zoning violation for allegedly running a business from out of the home. However, since Hill has agreed to leave the premises, a South Orange lawyer tells the New Jersey Star-Ledger that the town is now dropping the suit.

Hill is expected to begin serving her three-month prison sentence for tax evasionon July 8.
