Foxy Brown to be released from jail


NEW YORK -- After serving eight months at the Rose M. Singer facility in New York's Rikers Island, Foxy Brown will be released from jail April 18, according to her manager Chaz Williams.

"She did every single minute of her bid in jail, and she did it under the most severe conditions," Williams said. "They had her on continuous lockdown just because she is a celebrity. They were trying to break her spirit."

Williams revealed that Brown, born Inga Marchand, is in talks with a couple of television networks for a potential documentary and reality show on her life.

Upon her release, Brown will also prep for the release of her oft-delayed album, "Brooklyn's Don Diva," now due May 13 via Black Rose Entertainment/Black Hand/Koch. "She's going to get on top of her career again. She's ready to hit the ground running and do anything she needs to do to get her career back on point," Williams said.

As previously reported, Brown was sentenced on Sept. 8 to a year in jail for violating her probation after several arrests, including an altercation with two nail salon employees in August 2004 and assaulting a neighbor with a BlackBerry.
