    With news still sinking in about Lauryn Hill’s impending 3 month jail sentence for tax evasion, the question that everyone started asking was, “Who else has been in trouble with the IRS and had to serve time?” While that question on its face was enough to ponder, an even deeper question started to be asked; “How many caucasian celebrities have we heard of going to jail for this crime recently?”

    According to CFO Daily News, the following entertainers or people of note have been in some type of trouble with the US Government for tax evasion:

    1. Martha Stewart
    2. Wesley Snipes
    3. Nick Cage
    4. Marc Anthony
    5. Annie Leibovitz
    6. Darryl Strawberry
    7. Sophia Loren
    8. “Joe The Plumber”
    9. Ronald Isley
    10. Arnold Schwarzeneggar
    11. Toni Braxton
    12. Tom Daschel
    13. Stephen Baldwin
    14. Pamela Anderson
    15. Duane “Dog” Champman
    16.   Sinbad
    17. Willie Nelson
    18. Joe “Girls Gone Wild” Francis
    19. Chuck Berry
    20. Richard Pryor

    To this list, we add;  Beanie Sigel, Ja Rule and now Lauryn Hill.

    Of the celebrities listed only a few actually went to jail for those tax-related crimes: Richard Pryor, Richard Hatch, Chuck Berry, Ronald Isley, Beanie Sigel, Ja Rule, Wesley Snipes, Sophia Loren and now, Lauryn Hill.


    There seems to be some type of difference between the two lists, no? Oh, what could it be? Might it be that one list exhibits a bit more color than does the other?
