Fugees singer begins jail sentence...
Lauryn Hill

Lauryn Hill has issued a statement to fans, explaining that she is "making the best of" her time in prison.

Lauryn Hill has always been unpredictable. At times enduring trouble with the law, the one time Fugee was recently charged with tax evasion and faced a court case in the United States.

Found guilty, the singer began a three month jail sentence a few weeks ago. Publishing a statement on Tumblr, Lauryn Hill revealed that she was "making the most of" her time at the open style prison in Danbury, Connecticut.

"I have known since very young to look for the purpose and lesson in everything, including the trials" she wrote. "Although it has taken some adjustment, I cannot deny the favour 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."

Continuing, Lauryn Hill paid tribute to her fans. "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."
