lauryn hill jail sentence

Lauryn Hill is thanking fans for supporting her as she serves a three-month jail sentence for tax evasion.

In a letter that her team posted to her Tumblr page, the singer also opens up about her experience inside of the Danbury, Conn. federal prison, where she lives in an open dormitory-style living quarter.

Her rep wrote on Tumblr: “Ms. Hill has received a lot mail, and would like to let everyone know that she is doing well. She also asked me to pass along this message:

“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”

Hill also listed the names of dozens of fans who have wrote to her, thanking them “for their words of encouragement and support.”

Her stretch began on July 8 for failing to pay about $1 million in taxes over the past decade.
