Foxy Brown’s Travel Request Denied

Troubled rapper Foxy Brown won’t be receiving treatment for her hearing condition anywhere other than New York’s Rikers Island correctional facility. Judge Melissa Jackson denied the jailed rapper’s request to travel to to the House Clinic in Los Angeles to repair a defective cochlear implant.

Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, complained of an ear condition in 2004, and experienced some loss of hearing in 2006.

Prosecutors argued that Marchand would receive the necessary treatment in New York, but her lawyers insisted their client needed the House Clinics’ specialists.

Marchand was sentenced in September 2007 to a year in jail for violating probation when she pled guilty to misdemeanor assault charges stemming from an altercation with two manicurists in August 2004. Read the full story.
