Singer Paulini facing bribery charges and potential jail time

Singer Paulini has allegedly been caught bribing a NSW government employee and if the charges are proved she could potentially face up to seven years in prison.

NSW police allege that Paulini Curuenavuli, who performs under her first name, bribed a NSW Roads and Maritime Services employee with $800 to give her a fake, unrestricted NSW driver’s licence, despite not being qualified to drive.

The police say they have CCTV footage of the singer at the Roads and Maritimes Services office in Mount Druitt, and allege that she later transferred money into the account of the officer.

The employee was already under investigation by police for distributing fake drivers licences.

Paulini shot to fame as a contestant on Australian Idol and has sustained a successful singing career over the last decade.

She is currently starring in the stage musical The Bodyguard, taking on the lead role made famous by the late Whitney Houston It’s Brisbane season will wrap this weekend.

The singer is due to appear in a Sydney  court next week to answer the charges.
