Lloyd Bishop/NBCLauryn Hill has announced bad news for her overseas fans. The singer has cancelled a concert scheduled to take place in London due to her “past legal situation.”
The singer, who was scheduled to play London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Wednesday, offered an explanation via Facebook: “I’ve been informed that I won’t be able to enter the UK for a period of time due to my past legal situation. For this reason I have to cancel my concert on July 15th.”
She continues, “Know that I was looking forward to performing in London this summer, and that I appreciate all of my fans and supporters both in London, and throughout the UK. I look forward to seeing you again as soon as I’m able to.”
In 2012 Hill was charged with tax evasion and eventually spent three months in prison for failing to pay taxes on approximately $1.5 million earned between 2005 and 2007.
While it is currently unclear if she will be able to perform in the U.K. at a later date, Hill has lined up a replacement concert in France at La Citadelle in Saint Tropez.
