The singer has been put in default in a foreclosure lawsuit over nearly $1 million in back taxes on her mansion in New Jersey.

According to Bossip reports, Rothman Realty LLC sued the hip-hop singer late last year to foreclose her mansion after the company bought the tax certificate on her suburban mansion.

According to the suit, Hill didn’t pay the taxes on the property back in 2003, and plaintiff Rothman Realty LLC bought the tax lien and began paying the tax bills, which swelled to a total of $993,901 as of April 2018, according to court papers obtained by BOSSIP.

The “Killing Me Softly” singer never responded to the foreclosure suit, so Rothman Realty got a judge to officially put the home in foreclosure, court papers state. Now, the realty company wants Hill out of the mansion and the complete ownership and control of the property.

The home is now set to be sold at Sheriff’s auction, and the proceeds will be used to pay Rothman Realty back, according to court papers.

Hill bought the 5,000 square foot mansion in South Orange for $430,000 in 1997 – during the height of her fame with the Fugees, according to public records. The property, set on half an acre, is now worth an estimated $1.06 million.

According to reports, Saudia Shuler, 44, was charged with six counts of wire fraud, one count of theft of government funds, and two counts of social security fraud.

“You can’t take what’s not yours,” said Beth Leahy, deputy chief of Health Care and Government Fraud for the U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. According to the indictment, the alleged fraud began in 2014.

Shuler allegedly applied for benefits from the Social Security Administration, claiming she was disabled and unable to work. After the benefits were approved, Shuler allegedly continued working, including operating her own restaurant. She’s the owner of Country Cookin’, a take-out spot near 22nd and Cambria that boasts long lines as soon as the doors open.

Prosecutors say the work and income were never reported to Social Security.

“She said that she was disabled and in terms of assets said that she only had $30 in her bank account,” said Leahy. “As far as quality of life, she said she rarely make food for herself and had a cousin that cooked for her.”

If convicted, she faces a maximum sentence of 140 years in jail, a period of supervised release, full restitution to the government of $36,785.67, a fine, and a special assessment.
