Las Vegas native Jessica married Maurice while he was in prison, apparently it never dawned on the couple to begin getting his parole transferred to Nevada before he was released. The giddy couple went straight to his parole office after he was released, and left scratching their heads when they learned that the transfer was not going to be done any time soon.
Love After Lockup: Jessica Can’t Hang In Compton
Now, the Love After Lockup couple is trapped in Maurice’s old hood, couch surfing at his relatives’ houses, waiting on a parole transfer that could take months. Jessica is so awkward in Compton, it’s uncomfortable to watch.
And, she spent the entire Love After Lockup episode whining that she couldn’t live in Compton. Mrs. Gipson was one bad edit away from saying something racist she couldn’t take back. How are you going to talk about your husbands’ hometown, where he grew up, with such disgust on national TV? Sure, Compton isn’t exactly the cushy suburbs where Jessica hails from, but it’s also where Maurice’s friends and family still live.
Jessica loves bragging that Maurice was a Compton Crip. But, she nearly peed her pants when someone drove past them throwing up gang signs and shouting that this was their hood. Maurice took Jessica to his baby-mama’s house to see his daughter and she sat in the corner pouting because no one was introducing themselves to her. It’s safe to say she’s not acclimating well.
