The 48 year old and 12 time Grammy Award-Wining Gospel artist Kirk Franklin on Sunday revealed in an Instagram post that his sister will be heading back to prison for a 30 years term.
Though the reason for her current incarceration is yet to be specified, but it is believed that it might be connected with the previous dramas surrounding her life, as Kirk had been open about his sister’s addiction with drugs sometime in 2015.
“For ten years my younger sister was incarcerated in a facility here in Texas. She was in love with a young man who was a drug dealer. He introduced her to not only selling drugs, but using it as well. When he was arrested for drug trafficking, she was arrested along with him. After she served her time, she was brought before the review board who determined she was ready to be released and brought back into society. The documents were signed and she was set free….but only on paper”. Kirk explained.
“After a few months back into the free world, it became obvious to me rather quickly that my sister was still in prison”, Frank continued. “It’s what they call being institutionalized. She quickly started using again, becoming very reckless with her body, which turned into her using it as a means to pay for her habit”.
In one of his latest post on instagram, it seems the Award-Winning artist who has won the heart of many through his heartwarming tones is really laden by the weight of the sister’s plight.
