Lauryn Hill Opens Up About Prison Life In New Letter
Lauryn Hill is a few weeks into her three-month prison sentence and naturally the adjustment to life on the inside is taking some conforming to. The song bird recently released a letter via her Tumblr page talking about the acclimation process and expressing her appreciation for the love and support she has received while incarcerated. In the letter, Lauryn said prison life “has taken some adjustment” but she has “encountered a warm reception.”
As previously reported, Hill is serving three months in the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, on tax evasion charges.

“I have known since very young to look for the purpose and lesson in everything, including the trials. Although it has taken some adjustment, I cannot deny the favor I have encountered while in here, and general warm reception from a community of people who despite their circumstances, have found unique ways to make the best of them. Thank you for the letters of concern and well wishes that I receive in the mail every day. Although I may not be able to write everyone back, please know that they have been received, read, acknowledged, and appreciated. With Love back, MLH”
