The singer described a different experience than Giudice in a letter she wrote to fans while locked up.

She said, "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."

Hill was locked up in 2013 and Giudice served time in 2015.

As previously reported, prosecutors accused Brim of being a high-ranking official in the Bloods gang.

The 5-9 Brims is a violent criminal organization that has terrorized residents of Brooklyn and Queens by committing brutal acts of violence in public places, trafficking narcotics on the streets, and defrauding victims through financial schemes,” prosecutors said.

Following her 2020 arrest, Brim said she cut all ties with the gang and turned her life around. She told the court she had joined the gang at 12 due to her rough childhood.
