Rapper Foxy Brown was viciously attacked yesterday by three women, allegedly at the prompting of her ex-boyfriend, whom Brown had broken up with only a short time before. Reportedly, Brown became angry with the unidentified boyfriend after finding out he was a pimp, and jettisoned him during a heated 5:30 am exchange in Brooklyn. The boyfriend then allegedly called some of his "girls" to get after Foxy. An eyewitness gives their account of the ensuing ass-whupping:
They beat her bad. They ripped out her hair weave. Her hair was a mess - and that seems to be what she cared about most.
The three women also allegedly tore out Foxy's hearing-aid (she suffers from a sensorineural condition), and stole her handbag plus $500 in cash. Brown drove around with police after the incident, and pointed out an individual identified as Roshawn Anthony, who was arrested and charged with assault. It is not clear yet what role Anthony played in the beating, though TMZ is in fact identifying him as Brown's boyfriend. Brown's reps reportedly arrived on the scene shortly after this, and Brown at that point ceased cooperating with police.
Foxy, whose real name is Inga Marchand, has had her own run-ins with the law. In 1997, at the age of 17, Brown spat on two hotel workers in Raleigh, North Carolina, and subsequently missed a court appearance - which resulted in her receiving a 30-day suspended sentence and 80 hours of community service. In 2000, she was arrested for driving with a suspended license after crashing her Range Rover; and in Kingston, Jamaica in 2002 she was arrested for an altercation with a policewoman, and was kicked out of the country forever after again missing a court appearance. In 2005 Brown was charged with misdemeanor assault over a 2004 incident in which she attacked a pair of manicurists after refusing to pay a $20 bill. During a court appearance related to that case, Brown had an incident with the judge which led to her being handcuffed to a bench. The judge ultimately sentenced her to probation. Then, early this year, there was another incident in a beauty salon: Brown was informed that the establishment was closing but she refused to leave, and threw hair glue at an employee. She then allegedly spat on a man who was trying to call 911. A police officer arrived at the shopping plaza, but when he tried leading Brown away she struggled with him and the officer was forced to wrestle her to the ground. She was charged with battery and released on bail. When she failed to make a court appearance (again) a warrant was issued for her arrest. She finally did appear before the judge, and a trial date was set for June. She continues to be on probation over the 2004 manicurist attack, and has been threatened with a one year jail sentence if she violates it again.
Tore out her hearing-aid - ha ha.
