I revealed to you last month that Marlo Hampton was going to be the new Atlanta “housewife” and also brought you the “7 faces of Marlo” last week in a Mugshot Mania post…
I received the following from her publicist on Friday…
Your site was the first to break the story about Marlo’s past. It is for that reason we would like to offer you the exclusive extended statement from my client Marlo Hampton. Please let me know if you will run.
You can contact me directly if you need more information.
[Sidebar: The statement sent was neither "exclusive" or "extended" but I appreciate Marlo's camp giving me props on breaking the story.]
At any rate, Marlo says she’s past all that, but blame her ghetto upbringing for the fact that she caught a case after she beat a b*tch.
She explains that it was her “hard-knock childhood” and experiences in America’s foster care system that caused her life of crime… she’s since found God and no longer writes bad checks.
Oh you fancy huh?
Read Marlo Hampton’s “extended” statement below:
We all have a past; and my hard-knock childhood in the Foster Care system is a reflection on a bigger issue we faced in America, a broken Foster Care system.
I remain deeply sorry for my actions and I will continue to work hard to contribute to a better community.
My present charge in life is to live with God in my heart and help young women, especially from the foster care system, avoid the challenges I faced.
I’m more than just what is being said of me and I look forward to telling my story and helping others.”
– Marlo Hampton
Cue Lil Orphan Annie….
or better yet, Jay-Z….
So… What do you think of Marlo’s explanation about her long “A”zz rap sheet?
