Lauryn Hill has denied reports that she is being reinvestigated for tax evasion.

The former Fugees singer completed a three-month sentence for tax evasion and was released in October last year. She has since been on tour.

However, last week a report on Radar Online claimed that the IRS was investigating the singer again for tax evasions from 2005 to 2011. However, her publicist has now confirmed that this is false.

In a statement issued to Pitchfork, her publicist said: "Contrary to media gossip (fact checking seems to be a dying art-form) there are no changes in Ms. Hill's legal status. Ms. Hill has finished her sentence, has been fulfilling her agreement with the IRS, and is taking care of all outstanding matters in regards to this situation. She is not in jeopardy of any further charges. The press is reporting on paperwork that had recently been filed, and has now become public record."

In 2012, Hill pleaded guilty to failing to pay taxes on more than £1.16 million ($1.8 million) earned from 2005 to 2007. Sentencing also took into account unpaid state and federal taxes from 2008 and 2009, bringing the total earnings to around £1.5 million ($2.3 million).

Hill served her time at the minimum security prison in Danbury, Connecticut that inspired the hit Netflix series Orange Is The New Black.
