Jailbird Foxy Brown wanted to go to California to have her ears checked, but a Manhattan judge ruled she can have them treated right here in NYC.
Judge Melissa Jackson, calling the motion "desperate and frivolous," said Foxy "failed to provide proof" that a coast-to-coast trip was necessary.
Now she'll have to get the green light from the Department of Corrections -- and then the Department of Health -- to get her hearing treated in NYC.
Foxy's serving a one-year sentence on Rikers Island for violating her probation on assault charges from 2006.
