Gypsy Rose Blanchard is just hours away from her parole… but she won’t be released amidst a lot of pomp and circumstance… in fact, quite the opposite.
The felon, who served a 10-year sentence for manslaughter, will be released Thursday from the Chillicothe Correctional Center in Chillicothe, MO… and we’re told it will be a secretive process.
Karen PojmannCommunications director for the Missouri Department of Corrections, tells TMZ that no one will be entering the grounds for the upcoming release of Gypsy, meaning there will be no media, fans or spectators.
The car park is also off-limits… and we’re told it’s all about protecting prison staff, ensuring prison security and protecting the Gypsy’s privacy.
Gypsy’s exact time of release is also being kept secret and she is not interested in talking to the media during her departure… even though she is giving interviews from prison ahead of her high-profile release.
We’re told Gypsy wanted her release to be very quiet… and the prison is keeping things close to the vest around here because of her notoriety.
Gypsy released on parole in September and is released three years early. In 2016, she was sentenced to ten years behind bars after being convicted of her mother’s murder. The prison says its release process is a year in the making… with officials taking their time to make sure all the i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed.
Once Gypsy leaves prison, we’re told corrections officials hope she can continue to be successful and live a normal life.
During Gypsy’s seven years in prison, we’re told she took photography and videography classes, became involved with the media team and explored higher education options.
Now that Gypsy is out on parole, we’re told she has a plan for where she’ll live and how she’ll stay in touch with her parole officer.
As we reported… one of the gypsies first business assignments is to try to meet each other Taylor Swift this Sunday during the Kansas City Chiefs football game.
