Lyfe Jennings Reportedly Sentenced To Three Years In Jail

R&B singer Lyfe Jennings is heading to jail for three years, according to reports. The artist was due to perform in Seattle on
Tuesday, but the show was abruptly canceled before Jennings was
sentenced to three and a half years in Atlanta on Wednesday (September
22), according to Seattle Weekly. The sentence stems from an altercation Jennings had with the mother of his child in 2008.

The singer kicked down the door of a house in Smyrna, Georgia, in an
attempt to find Joy Pound and later fired a gun outside. Smyrna police
saw a red 2005 Corvette fleeing the scene, and Jennings was caught after
a high-speed chase that ended when the singer smashed the vehicle. He
refused a sobriety test. Jennings was handed misdemeanor charges of
criminal trespass, discharging a firearm near a public highway and
refusal to take a DUI test, in addition to two felony counts of
attempting to elude an officer and possession of a firearm by a
convicted felon.

Jennings' label offered no comment by press time

On Tuesday, Jennings posted a vague message on his Twitter account announcing he would no longer be writing on the micro-blogging site.

"This will be my last post. To everyone who gave me a chance I am forever in your debt. I have had a fabulous career because of you. All I
can say in parting is that I have been honest with yaw. I didn't
sugarcoat a word didn't hold back a single sylible of my life from yaw,"
Jennings said. "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, tho I can't be sure. But one
thing I am sure of is God gives and takes away in measure. He is fair,
just and forever. Amen from aman... Smile, it's contageous:)"

Jennings was sentenced to 10 years for felony arson before gaining acclaim after his wins at the famed amateur night at New York's
Apollo Theater. His 2004 debut, Lyfe 268-192, went platinum, and he's known for hits like "S.E.X." and "Never Never Land." He released his latest LP, I Still Believe,
in August, a project he dubbed his "final" album. In a press release
for the album, Jennings explained that the title reflects his resilience
despite his personal trials.

"It's tragic; I think I have a horribly charmed life," Jennings said. "But I think God puts me through stuff and keeps me there so I can
talk about it."

Wow, I can't believe he is going to jail. I really enjoy his music and I hope he comes back with another HIT Album. Still yet, we must learn from Jennings mistakes by taking the time to really think about what we're doing rather than just reacting based on our emotions.

Keep your head up! With a name like lyfe you can't help but survive these trials! Never say never man. Empty yourself of yourself and fill yourself with the word of God or whatever your higher power is!

One love Bigg Wreck

I really hope this is not true. Once we reach a peak in our life or reach our dream,we have to remember what roads we went down and through that walk was some challenges, heartache, some stand stills. There's nothing or no one that important were it kill what we work hard for, No Man or Woman. Lyle Jenning did time came out to show you can still go on with your life in a positive way. Black Men! We Must Let Go Of That Attiude That Going To Give Us Time Away From Our Families,Friends and Fan. If you have Kids now thats not really doing them Any Good. Wake Up Everyone!
