Lauryn HillĀ has checked into prison to begin a three-month sentence for tax evasion.

The former Fugees singer pleaded guilty to three charges of failing to file her tax returns between 2005 and 2007 last year and on Monday the singer was booked at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, where she will serve out her punishment, according to TMZ.

After completing her stint behind bars, the star will spend a further three months under house arrest and nine months on supervised release.

Meanwhile, the Grammy winner has already taken steps to rectify her financial problems – earlier this year she paid off more than $900,000 in back taxes to settle her debts.
