Sad news for U.K. fans hoping to hear the soothing sounds of the lovely Ms. Lauryn Hill. Her scheduled show at London’s O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire venue this week has been canceled because the 40-year-old is reportedly banned from entering the U.K.

“I’ve been informed that I won't be able to enter the U.K. for a period of time due to my past legal situation,” Hill wrote on Facebook Friday. “For this reason I have to cancel my concert on July 15th. Know that I was looking forward to performing in London this summer, and that I appreciate all of my fans and supporters both in London, and throughout the U.K. I look forward to seeing you again as soon as I'm able to.”

Hill served three months in federal prison for an outstanding tax debt. The singer was released in October 2013 and has been touring ever since.
