Arrest Warrant Issued For Foxy Brown

FOXY_BROWN.jpgFoxy Brown should have kept her promise when she got out of jail and head straight for the church! It seems she is in need of some right now as a New York Judge issued an arrest warrant for her because she failed to turn up in court to face allegations of assault, in relation to an incident last year.

According to starpulse Inga Marchand aka Foxy Brown is accused of hitting 25-year-old Arlene Raymond with her Blackberry cell phone in Brooklyn on July 30 when a heated argument between the two got out of hand. Raymond was taken to Brooklyn Hospital following the incident, and was treated for loose teeth and swelling around her lip and right eye. Brown was subsequently charged with felony assault, menacing, harassment and criminal possession of a weapon when she turned herself into police. She was released on bail and pleaded not guilty to the counts in October.

But Brown failed to show for her latest court date at Brooklyn Criminal Court on Monday, and, as a result, a judge has called for the star's arrest.

Brown's own defense attorney admitted he didn't know of her whereabouts and had not heard from her recently. Meanwhile, Raymond has filed suit against Brown for unspecified damages connected to the alleged assault.

The hip-hop star was recently released from New York's Riker's Island Prison after serving eight months of a 12-month sentence for probation violations.


Remy Ma Blames 'Biased Jury' For Assault Conviction

remy_MA.jpgRapper Remy Ma has lashed out at the New York jury that found her guilty of assault and weapon possession charges in March, blaming racism for her conviction.

According to Starpule Remy Ma is currently being held without bail at Rikers Island prison in New York until her sentencing on May 13. She faces up to 25 years behind bars after being convicted of shooting acquaintance Makeda Barnes Joseph in the abdomen following a row outside a club in the Big Apple.

But the 26-year-old, who is of African American origin, insists she expected the jury to return a guilty verdict, claiming they were biased against her skin color and chosen career path.

Still proclaiming her innocence, she tells DJ Kay Slay, "Just because 12 people say something, who weren't there, does not mean nothing. I'm not even mad at people.

I'm mad at money or what lack of does to people. It's really sad. Ain't (sic) nothing changed, because I'm on the Island...(I'm) still the Queen of NY. Don't be mistaken about a jury that was not my peers. There was no tan (or) dark brown, Black - nothing - on that jury. It's a whole conspiracy against rappers right now so I already knew what it was."
