A prison sentence is a harsh reality for any criminal. No one is above the law. Not even the celebrities who have thousands of fans all over the world are spared by the law. Far away from all the luxurious and the glam world, it is not easy for them to survive in the harsh circumstances of a prison. Here are 12 celebs who opened up about their prison experiences.
“I mean, there was mold in the bathrooms. There was not running water constantly. The showers were freezing cold… I mean, the living conditions were really horrible. It was — it was hell,” the Real Housewives star said.
The rapper revealed, “When I first got to prison, I slept so good for the first three weeks. I was greeted with open arms by a lot of wonderful, wonderful girls at FDC Philadelphia. I met a lot of good people in there who are still my friends to this day.”
“Life in prison was hell,” the rapper admitted. “People were dying every week. But I think it helped me to get to the point I’m at now. It gave me time to reflect, it made a lot of relationships that were toxic in my life just fall away.”
The singer explained, “Although it has taken some adjustment, I cannot deny the favor 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.”
“I was having so much sex that I was too tired to even go to the gym and workout I’d just stay in my cell all day,” the former heavyweight world champion who was never the same boxer after prison once revealed.
Paris revealed, “At first, I went through so many emotions. It’s a learning experience I’m going to grow from. Just being away from everything… you know, the craziness, the paparazzi. I’ve had a lot of alone time to think and read and write.”
The 39 years old said, “It was so cool. It was an amazing experience. I wouldn’t take it back for anything. I have a really good belief in destiny. It’s, like, if i’m gonna be killed in there, I’m gonna be killed in there. But people were cool”
“It was a watershed moment. It put me in a position of great humility, and I was able to make amends to friends and family and refocus my life on setting and achieving goals,” the actor admitted.
The rapper revealed, “I read a lot of books, got my GED while I was in there, and worked out every day. It kept me sane a lot of days when it was stressful, I didn’t get in any fights when I was there.”
The actress revealed, “You leave your cell for one hour a day, and you don’t go outside. The other girls in the other cells were in there for murder. The weirdest part for me was I finally had silence in my life.”
