Cyntoia Brown spends first weekend of freedom with Christian rapper she married while in prison
Cyntoia Brown, 31, was jailed for nearly half her life and served 15 years of a life sentence for the 2004 murder of a Nashville real estate agent
Cyntoia Brown was seen celebrating her first weekend of freedom with her husband Jaime Long whom she had married while she was in prison.
Brown and her husband who is a Christian hip hop artist were seen smiling at each other in an adorable picture that was shared on the musician's Instagram page.
Brown, 31, is seen wearing a white dress and a massive ring while Long rocked a blue suit in the heartwarming pictures.
Brown was released from prison on August 7 after 15 years.
She was jailed for nearly half her life and served 15 years for the 2004 murder of a Nashville real estate agent Johnny Mitchell Allen who bought her for sex when she was 16.
She was granted clemency by then-Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam in January.
A day after Brown was released from prison, a rep for the couple confirmed that they had tied the knot.
Not many details are known about the couple and it is unclear when or how they had met or when they tied the knot.
A spokesman for Long, Wed Yoder, spoke to The Tennessean and said, "They will tell the rest of their story later this fall."
Under the artist name 'J. Long', Long has been active in the music industry since 2009.
Long who is a native of La Marque, Texas comes from a family of musicians.
His uncle Harvey used to be a vocalist and guitarist for 'The Ink Spots' which was one of the USA's most influential all-black vocal groups which rose to fame in the 1930s.
During an interview with Emcee magazine in 2017, Long shared, "It was like I was destined to be in music. I can remember falling in love with the drums when I was about two years old. Everyone in our family played instruments or was a singer. I loved everything that had something to do with music."
Long does not really know about life in prison and was only jailed once in 2004 for assaulting a public servant in Texas.
Ever since conjugal visits were banned in Tennessee state prisons, Brown has not had conjugal visits with her husband.
However, a bill was passed in March which created a conjugal visit policy. It will only be made effective in 2020.
MEAWW had previously reported that Brown's case has been fought for with celebrities like Rihanna and Kim Kardashian backing her for clemency.
"I look forward to using my experiences to help other women and girls suffering abuse and exploitation," Brown said in a statement after her release.
