Ill No Mo': Foxy Brown Is Headed to the Slammer

8/22/2007 6:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that Foxy Brown is headed to Rikers Island, after a Manhattan judge ordered the three-months-pregnant rapper to serve time for violating her probation.
Courtroom sketch of Foxy Brown
We're told that just minutes ago, Judge Melissa Jackson remanded Brown to the custody of the state, and threw her in the clink until her next hearing Sept. 7. Brown had been on probation on assault charges, but two incidents in recent weeks violated her probation, thus leading Judge Jackson to send Foxy to jail.

A source tells TMZ that Foxy's face was "priceless" when the judge handed down her decision, and that Brown and her lawyer had not expected to see jail time. It has yet to be determined where Brown will be held, but Brown was booked at Manhattan Criminal Court and handed over to authorities.

In court, Brown revealed that she is three months pregnant, and that she plans to get married.

UPDATE: Stephen Morello of the Department of Corrections tells TMZ that Foxy will be housed at the Rose M. Singer Center, a women's jail on Rikers Island. We're told that, because of her celebrity status, she may be housed in a cell, as opposed to with other inmates, and could have an escort when she leaves her cell. She's in the facility right now and is undergoing the "intake" process, we're told.

AS for the people that say "who is Foxy Brown", she is arguable the best female rapper....EVER - next to Lauryn Hill. That may not mean anything to some, but in regards to Hip Hop culture...... you know the HUGE phenonmenon that is gripping the youth across america - the genre that is leaking into the coporate culture and impacting society in ways that NO ONE would have ever been able to grip - you know, the most impactful genre of music that exist today. well year.......... in Hip Hop she is a star.

A lot of the comments on here are unecessary, half of you probably aren't even familiar with her music. She is indeed talented. I'm sure the majority of your lives are not perfect and if they were to be exposed you'd look pretty pathetic as well. I agree new material from Foxy is long over due. She obviously has some maturing to do (she seems to have a major ego), but sometimes its hard to make self improvments when your constantly being judged. Let her, as well as the other regulars in the news, live and learn. A moment in time doesn't define your entire exsistence. She may be a great mother and accomplish great things in the future. Stop predicting her future, worry bout yours. DO YOU! I hope Foxy returns with greater focus and gives us some good music.

I used to work for her back in 97-98 and I'm sorry to say that she still has a lot of growing up to do.

Lock the STANK in jail and allow her to serve her required time. To often these so called artist think they are so untouchable and feel as they could do as they wish- NOT!!! Maybe being locked up behind a cage and being told what, where, and how will be a reality check as to how quickly it could all come to an end for them. I mean this phatt ass stank continues to get her self in trouble time after time-

Oh come on LiLohan will DEFINATELY do SOME time in jail. After all her charges have a mandatory minimun sentance.. IF she gets convicted. Granted it might only be 24 hrs.. with the rest of the time suspended if she completes the alcohol/drug program she will most likely have to take
