Lyfe Jennings Reveals Jeffrey Dahmer Asked Him To Sing 'Pretty Brown Eyes' While The Two Were In Prison Together

The 44-year-old singer shared the "fun fact" on Instagram. 😬

R&B singer Lyfe Jennings shared news nobody asked for over the weekend.

The 44-year-old Grammy-winning crooner posted a "fun fact" to Instagram on Sunday that he was asked to sing by deceased serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer while the two were in prison together.

"I could tell yall some weird stories... don't believe it? Look it up.. 1992 recieving, my number 268192 his 227501. Gonna tell one story on a reel tonight.. sh*t gonna trip u out. Tonight at 12."

Jennings posted two videos detailing the weird exchange. He revealed that while he was in prison, he was a "porter" inside the Wisconsin jail.

"Like I said, I was a porter. In case you don't know, a porter is a cat who cleans the railings, the floor, mops and sweeps."

"I was real young then, so they let me out to do my thing," Jennings continued explaining. "One particular day, I walked past, and Jeffrey said, 'Hey, hey, hey, is that you down there singing?"

"And he was asking me, 'You would never guess what song he asked me, did I know. "Pretty Brown Eyes," so I sang that record. He beat it on the door and all this stuff, man."

Jennings' ditty didn't go over like he thought it would.

Comments under the post appeared to call him out for "clout-chasing." Others called the singer Dahmer's next victim.

"This is so weird and giving clout chasing. The folks eager to hear this mess are just as weird," one person wrote.

"This is crazy. He would killed you, too, if he had the chance. Not the homie🤣," another person wrote.

From 1992-2002, Jennings served ten years in prison for arson.
