New York rapper Foxy Brown has officially been indicted for her alleged role in an assault case last month against a woman who previously placed an order of protection against the emcee three years ago.
According to reports, the "Ill Na Na" now faces 365 days behind bars if found guilty.
Rapper Foxy Brown has been indicted on charges of violating an order of protection stemming from a 2007 confrontation with her neighbor in New York City. The indictment announced Friday charges Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, with criminal contempt in the second degree. She could face up to one year in jail. A lawyer for Brown did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (Associated Press)
Earlier in the week, Foxy secretly testified in a New York court.
She may call herself "Don Diva," but the singer intends to ditch her in-your-face attitude and tell jurors that she's really just a mama's girl who's been trying to exorcise the nasty demons of her bad-girl past and now lives in her Prospect Heights brownstone with her mother, a source said. The sassy singer, whose real name is Inga Marchand, will flatly deny that a stare-down with neighbor Arlene Raymond escalated into a profane tirade and ended with her provocatively mooning the woman, the sources said. She faces felony charges from the July 21 incident. The latest legal case against the platinum-selling singer has already taken its toll on her creative energies, a source close to Foxy said. "Foxy can't even sleep at night. This is truly a nightmare," said the source. (New York Post)
In the past weeks, Brown has made headlines for an arrest and alleged fight with her manager.
New York's Daily News reported that the incident occurred after Brown was six hours late for an interview in which she was to discuss last week's arrest. The rapper reportedly became combative after building staffers asked her to be quiet, and then became combative with her manager and others. She reportedly fled the scene before police arrived. The paper's report was unconfirmed at press time. (MTV)
She is currently being accused of violating the terms of her probation against a Brooklyn neighbor.
Foxy's camp says she was minding her own business and "has never been more focused," but victim Arlene Raymond claims the rapper called her a "dirty b*tch" and then pulled up her skirt and mooned her while yelling "kiss my a**"! What does Foxy's lawyer have to say about that? "Foxy would never lift her dress, not in a million years." It's true, only classy ladies get charged with Class E felonies. (Gothamist)
