(AllHipHop News) Hip-hop star Lauryn Hill has scored a legal victory after suing a family member over an unpaid loan.
The former Fugees star slapped her cousin Gerald Hill with a breach of contract lawsuit in July for allegedly not holding up his end of a deal to repay a $65,000 loan within the agreed time frame.
Lauryn reportedly gave Gerald the money in June, 2017 and told him it would be interest-free if he paid off his debt in three months.
Their agreement also stated that if Gerald defaulted, he would be responsible for the loan, lawyer's fees, and other costs the singer would incur with having to take him to court.
Gerald failed to keep up with repayments, so Lauryn sued, and now he has been found guilty by default after ignoring the musician's lawsuit.
Gerald now has to repay the full amount of the loan and additional interest and damages.
