Lauryn Hill has written a letter to her fans from prison, thanking them for their unwavering support.

The former Fugees singer, who is serving a three-month sentence for failing to pay about a million dollars in taxes, also revealed in the post on her Tumblr account that it has taken time for her to adapt to her situation.

"I have known since very young to look for the purpose and lesson in everything, including the trials. Although it has taken some adjustment, I cannot deny the favour 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," she wrote.

The 38-year-old added: "Thank you for the letters of concern and well wishes that I receive in the mail every day. Although I may not be able to write everyone back, please know that they have been received, read, acknowledged, and appreciated." She signed off with: "With Love back, MLH."

Lauryn made special mention of 39 individuals by name for their "words of encouragement and support" on the blog post.

The singer, who has had hits with the Fugees and her solo album The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill, pleaded guilty to tax evasion in 2012 and was sentenced to three months in a prison in Danbury, Connecticut. She started her sentence earlier this month.
