Lauryn Hill Net Worth: Lauryn Hill is an American singer/songwriter, rapper, producer and actress who has a net worth of $2 million dollars. Lauryn Hill was born May 26, 1975 in East Orange, New Jersey. She is best known for being a member of the band the Fugees and for her subsequent solo career. She began singing at an early age and also played minor roles on television (As the World Turns and in the film Sister Act II: Back in the Habit). Her on-again off-again stint in the Fugees began at the age of 13, but was often interrupted by acting gigs and then by enrollment at Columbia University. The Fugees developed a local following then released a debut album, Blunted on Reality, which bombed and almost caused a breakup, but their album, The Score, went multi-platinum and garnered them international success. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (1998), Hill's solo studio album, was well-received. The album debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and sold approximately eight million copies. At the 41st Grammy Awards, the record earned her five awards, including Album of the Year and Best New Artist. She won numerous other awards and she graced the covers of several magazines. Soon afterward, Hill dropped out of the public eye, suffering from the pressures of fame and disenchantment with the music industry. Her last full-length recording, the new-material live album MTV Unplugged No. 2.0 (2001), sharply divided critics, and though certified platinum was commercially unsuccessful in the U.S. A subsequent reunion of the Fugees did not last long. Lauryn Hill has six children, five of whom are with Rohan Marley, son of reggae legend (the late) Bob Marley. In 2012, Hill pled guilty to tax evasion and in 2013 served a three-month prison sentence.
