Cyntoia Brown married a Christian hip hop artist during her time in prison and kept it a secret until the announcement of her memoir.
According to the Tennessean, the publisher of Brown’s memoir, Atria, confirmed the marriage in a news release. However, Associate Director Of Publicity Yona Deshommes did not disclose when did the couple get married and the release referred to Brown as “Cyntoia Brown-Long”.
“For the first time ever, Cyntoia shares the details of her transformation, including a profound encounter with God, an unlikely romance, and an unprecedented outpouring of support from social media advocates and A-list celebrities which ultimately lead to clemency and her release from prison.”
The Daily Mail revealed that Brown’s husband is Texas-based Christian hip hop artist Jaime Long.
