As fans eagerly awaited Lyfe Jennings newest album " I Still Believe ", few knew that he was dealing with the possibility of going back to jail. An argument with his former manager and ex girlfriend landed the singer 3 1/2 years in jail. Yesterday, September 22nd Lyfe Jennings released this statement online via twitter......
" This will be my last post. To everyone who gave me a chance, I'm forever in your debt. I've had a fabulous career because of you. All I can say, in parting, is that I've been honest with yaw. I didn't sugarcoat a word, didn't hold back a single syllable of my life from yaw. I've lived a hundred lives in these 6 yrs, so I not only won't, i don't have the right to complain. I would like to think that I've changed lives by changing my own, though I can't be sure. But one thing I am sure of, God gives and takes away in measure. He's fair, just, and forever. Amen from aman, Smile, it's contagious : ) "
He remains positive and is grateful for his music success. So what landed this celebrity in jail? Even the most violent criminals get off with less time.
In 2008, Jennings allegedly got into an altercation with the mother of his child. He later shot a gun and speed away from her house in his vehicle. Law enforcement was notified, and Jennings was later pulled over after being chased by police. He declined to take a sobriety test and was put under arrest.
His charges include: DUI refusal, discharging a weapon, carrying a firearm as a convicted felon, criminal trespassing and eluding a police offer.
Jennings rise to fame was after serving a 10 year sentence at the age of 19. Undoubtedly, this played a major role in the sentencing of the now 37 year old.
Jennings fans are being supportive, offering prayers and encouragement through twitter. It's not clear as to when he will begin serving his jail time but, It may be soon due to the cancelling of his tour that's all ready in progress.
