Former Fugees singer Lauryn Hill was released Friday from a federal prison where she served three months after pleading guilty to failing to pay taxes, The Associated Press reported.

"She was released several days early based on a number of factors the Bureau of Prisons takes into consideration, including good behavior. She will now start today a one-year period of probation with three months of home confinement during that year," Hill's attorney, Nathan Hochman told the AP in an email Friday.

Hill failed to pay taxes on more than $1.8 million earned between 2005 and 2007, as well as unpaid state and federal taxes in 2008 and 2009, according to the AP.
