Singer Lauryn Hill has agreed to vacate her home to settle a dispute with her disgruntled landlord over unpaid rent.

The former Fugees frontwoman was recently threatened with eviction from the house in New Jersey after the owner accused her of squatting.

Hill has now agreed to hand over up to $7,000 (£4,516) in back payments, and was ordered to move out of the property by Friday (31May13), according to Tmz.com. It is not clear if she has vacated the premises.

The rent saga is the latest in a long line of financial woes for the star, who will start a three-month prison sentence for tax evasion in July (13).
