A judge in New Jersey has postponed the tax evasion sentencing of singer Lauryn Hill and scolded the eight-time Grammy winner for reneging on a promise to make restitution.

Hill pleaded guilty last year to not paying federal taxes on $1.8 million earned from 2005 to 2007. At that time, her attorney said she would pay more than $500,000 by the time of her sentencing.

It was revealed Monday in court in Newark that Hill has paid $50,000. U.S. Magistrate Judge Madeline Cox Arleo criticized her for relying on the promise of a recording contract to pay the tax bill. Hill left the court without commenting.

The South Orange resident got her start with The Fugees and began her solo career in 1998 with the acclaimed album "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill."
