Well here is a plot twist! The newly released ex-inmate Cyntoia Brown is married. According to reports, she got hitched while she was still behind bars serving a life sentence. Who did she marry?
According to EurWeb.com, Brown tied the knot with Christian hip-hop artist J. Long (born Jamie Long) while she was in prison serving 15 years of a life sentence. No word on how they met but Long has served some time himself. Long was reportedly jailed in 2004 for assaulting a public servant in Texas.
The couple was not allowed to have conjugal visits with her husband as it was prohibited in Tennessee state prisons. Long is from Texas and has a family with a musical background.
