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.

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.

First of all, anybody who's stupid enough to violate their probation by committing battery deserves to go to jail. Second, Foxy has been given chances to avoid jail by attending anger management classes, which SHE FAILED TO ATTEND. Third, Lohan hasn't even had a preliminary hearing yet, which is why she's still free-- but there's no doubt she's gonna serve time. The only question is how much. Finally, for anybody who believes white people don't go to jail for non-violent offenses, I have two words for you: Martha Stewart.

Rap and hip-hop completely sucks, and so does this chick. So glad the judge revoked her probation and tossed her in jail. Too funny. I would have loved to see the look on her piece of trash face when she found out she was going to jail.

Jesse Jackson should be on camera anytime now, playing the race card.

My wonderful state NY seems to have a track record of not playing around with these celebrities, on the other hand Cali is a joke. They are going to let the cokewhore Lindsay Lohan go and you guys elect Arnold Swazawhatever as governor. I am really happy I don't live there you guys are ridiculous. Everyone over there seems to have a cocaine addiction, pill popping dope heads. Wonderful Cali home of Anna Nicole, Nicole Richie, Paris Hiltion, Lindsay Hohan and on and on and on......

It DOES seem a little weird that LiLo is not getting charged with a felony and is doing yoga somewhere is Colorado and Foxy goes to RIKERS?! WHAT?!?! But I have to say, she dug her own grave. Is she so unable to control herself that she needs to whup the ass of anyone that looks at her funny? While on PROBATION!? While PREGNANT!? Just another celebrity (or...kinda celebrity) showing the restraint of a three year old. Lets just hope that a.) she doesn't unleash her wrath on her child and b.) the "street cred" FINALLY gets her some album sales.

Oh, Foxy, those beatdowns have finally caught up with you. This news made my week. I love that she looked surprised when they read the verdict, as if she feels she's above the law in some way. I'm sure she'll get quite the attitude adjustment in jail. What a trashy ho. Although, I really feel for her baby.

Please don't give credit to judge melissa jackson. She is as starstruck as anyone in LA. Check out her rulings against busta rhymes who repeatedly assaults people, runs red lights, drives on a suspended license and refuses to cooperate in the murder investigation of his bodyguard ( which he witnessed). Foxy had way too many chances. Remember she's also up on assault charges in Florida against a beauty parllor owner and a cop. East coast justice is no better than west coast. They need to get serious with all celebrities who think they are above the law.

Thank you IMAO AT CALI and agreed PB but I do still think that we are more efficient at jailing these so called CELEBRITIES ex: Foxy, Leona Helmsley (look her up young people), Old Dirty Bastard, etc. Nicole is prancing up and down here and in Cali and Hohan is doing yoga like someone else said. I think we have done it way more than Cali but you are right all of these judges need to get it together and stop being starstruck- it's just ridiculous!
