TMZ reports that the 38-year-old entered the Federal Correctional Institution — a "minimum security type facility" in Danbury, Conn. — at 11:15 am ET and that she'll be in among the prison's general population.
She was sentenced to the jail term in May after pleading guilty to tax evasion. The former Fugees singer was charged with failing to file returns for her $1.8-million income between 2005 and 2007.
Lauryn is best known for her rendition of "Killing Me Softly" with the Fugees and for her solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill — which included the hit "Doo Wop (That Thing)."
She has six children between the ages of 2 and 15, all but one of whom she had with Rohan Marley, son of Bob Marley.
