Music great Lauryn Hill has managed to secure a loyal fan base thanks to her first studio album, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” but she’s been getting called out for being late to some of her shows over the years.

And over the weekend, some even took to social media to vent about Lauryn showing up three hours late to a recent performance in Atlanta.

Apparently Lauryn was about three hours late to a show in Atlanta and fans were heated with the R&B singer for showing up so late and only singing three songs before getting shut down by the venue.

Yet, despite her notorious reputation for being tardy, it still didn’t stop thousands of Lauryn Hill fans from copping tickets to see their fav perform her hits at Atlanta’s Chastain Park Friday night. How did it go? About as typical as a Lauryn Hill show usually goes. Per pissed concert-goers, the former Fugees frontwoman showed up nearly three hours late, and was booed to hell because of it. What was even more disappointing was Ms. Hill only performed THREE songs before the venue cut off her mic due of their strict curfew.

“I’ve never been so disappointed in my life after a concert,” Holliwood20 tweeted. “Lauryn Hill had her supporters in ATL waiting almost 3 hours. On her 4th song, the sound went off because there’s a curfew at Chastain Park which has an 11 o’clock cut off. We work too hard for our money.”

The disappointed fan also demanded a refund, tweeting, “It’s not about Lauryn Hill being continuously late, we would love to be fully compensated for the product. Three songs for 30 minutes? Wow!”

So, why the lateness? According to the “Everything Is Everything” singer, it was all her driver’s fault. “My driver got lost. I can’t control that,” Lauryn says in a video of an angry fan confronting her. The fan said he saw Lauryn performing at soundcheck at 4pm and wondered why she didn’t stay, to which she replied, “I’m a perfectionist about what I do.” Except when it comes to time, obviously.
