Lauryn Hill pens prison letter
Lauryn Hill decided to use some of her time in lock up to reach out to her fans in a show of appreciation. The “Lost Ones” singer began her three-month prison sentence for tax evasion after failing to file her returns from 2005 to 2007.
Weeks after she reported to a Connecticut facility to serve her time, Lauryn posted a letter to her Tumblr page that thanked her fans and supporters for their daily “letters of concern and well wishes.”
“I have known since very young to look for the purpose and lesson in everything, including the trials,” Lauryn wrote. “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,”
She concluded, “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.”
