27-year-old rapper Foxy Brown (whose real name is Inga Marchand) turned herself in to NYPD yesterday afternoon to be booked on felony assault, menacing, harassment and criminal possession of a weapon . She was arraigned and released on $5,000 bail.
Foxy knocked her 25 year old neighbor in the face with her Blackberry, very similar to Naomi Campbell's incident with her assistant (which led supermodel Naomi to do five days of community service this past winter at the NYC Department Of Sanitation just blocks from my home!).
Foxy reportedly knocked out the neighbor's teeth and busted her eye and lips with her Blackberry device on July 30, 2007 at their Prospect Heights, Brooklyn residence.
This incident comes after many arrests and court appearances by Brown, including one where she stuck her tongue out at the judge and was subsequently handcuffed and restrained for the duration of the court session. It also comes after Foxy's fake disappearance earlier this year and her beatdown at the Pink Houses projects in East NY, Brooklyn by three women who ripped out her weave, her hearing aid and allegedly stole her designer purse, etc.
Foxy was not nice or friendly when I met her in October 2003 while I was employed by MTV. She was very rude when I said hello to her, so these incidents by Ms. Inga are no surprise to me.
UPDATE 8/20/07: Foxy Brown is expecting her first child.
The rapper confirmed the news to the New York Post during a recent shopping trip. She also revealed that she plans to get married next month.
