Foxy Brown Ditches Gig Over Diva Demands

10/9/2010 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Notorious troublemaker Foxy Brown left a NYC nightclub in the lurch earlier this week when she showed up for a gig nearly 4 hours late ... all because she didn't like the car they sent to pick her up.

Foxy Brown

Foxy was scheduled to perform at Splash Bar New York in Manhattan on Wednesday night, but the promoters of the gig tell TMZ they got an angry call from Foxy's people that night when the car they sent to pick her up arrived. Seems Foxy had requested a 2010 model SUV, but instead she got a 2009. It's odd she would care about what year the car was ... since she hasn’t had a hit since 1998.

We're told Foxy eventually gave in ... but showed up at the club only 30 minutes before closing. Foxy never took the stage -- claiming the promoters refused to pay her the other half of her $1,000 appearance fee.

A rep for Foxy tells us, “They promised they would give her the rest of the deposit and balance due when she arrived, but did not! Foxy was disappointed that the deposit and rider requirements were not met, that was all.”

The club's promoters are currently “discussing their legal options."

$1,000?? You'd think she would've paid THEM not to disclose such an embarrassing figure. Oh well. A girl's got to keep herself in skanky clothes, hoochie nails and horse-hair weaves, somehow. Such a shame. The Il Na Na had talent. Never understood why she (or others) felt the need to be so skanky. Her and Lil' Kim's "slut war" of '97 pre-dated the Britney/Xtina "slut war" of '03. Women blazin' the trail for modern feminism! Thanks for that, gals. Classy.

Note to Foxy: Next time, use your energy to negotiate a better fee instead of arguing over an '09 SUV. Too much pride, too little gray matter.

Let's see...Xtina's latest album tanks due to resting on her laurels, Britney's a looney, Lil' Kim makes Michael Jackson look au naturel and "Oxy" Foxy Brown's taking a grand per show. Get your sh*t together, ladies. Most of us can only dream of the opportunities you've been gifted.

Bitch, then take your 1996 Kia to the gig. I still have no clue who this tranny is (or thinks she is). $1,000 for appearance, she makes less the cheapest Kardasian....

So she gets a 10th of what Chloe Kardashian would get to appear at a club, but she actually has to perform unlike the Kardashian who gets to hang out and drink? WHAT A DEAL!!!

I wouldn't have paid her the rest of the money either. She didn't show up until the place was about to close! Why does she think that you can NOT SHOW UP and still get paid? She's a nobody, HAS BEEN.

Dear Foxy::

Your career has been on OVER.COM since the end of the nineties. How dare you make demands for an SUV when you know you can't even afford a Metrocard to ride the NYC subway! C'mon boo, just do like the rest of the hood bitches from Brooklyn and get your ass a job at the checkout line at PathMark and call it a day. SMDH @ this ho!
