NEWARK, N.J., June 29 (UPI) -- Lauryn Hill Friday pleaded guilty in a Newark, N.J., court to intentionally failing to file U.S. tax returns in 2005, 2006 and 2007, records show.

The former Fugees singer faces three years in prison and $75,000 in fines, TMZ said.

Asked if she "intentionally and willingly" failed to file the returns, Hill told the judge, "Yes."

Hill was released on $150,000 bail and her sentencing is set for November, TMZ said.
