As Biggie Smalls once said, keep your family and business completely separated!
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Lauryn Hill is currently in a legal battle with her cousin, Gerald Hill, over an unpaid loan. Lauryn reportedly lended her cousin $65,000 in June 2017. When no payments were made Ms. Hill filed a lawsuit in June 2018.
"Per the deal, if Gerald repaid the entire loan by September 2017, he would pay no interest. If he paid after September, the debt would grow with 10% simple annual interest until paid off," according to The Blast.
A judge ruled in favor of Lauryn and has ordered quite a lump sum to be paid back to the singer.
“Judgment is hereby entered in favor of Plaintiff and against Defendant in the amount of $72,886.62 consisting of $71,228.95 in damages, including contractual interest, attorneys’ fees in the amount of $1,401 and costs in the amount of $256.67," said the documents obtained by The Blast.
The case is ongoing.
