So I was sitting around, feeling all badly for poor, knocked-up, jailed Foxy Brown. Images of that lady who gave birth on the prison floor a few months ago kept creepy into my mind. Remember that one? She was in the Lackawanna County Prison, and the guards refused to take her to the hospital. She kept pleading with them, telling them she was in labor, and all they did was put her into a cell with a camera and ignore her. She gave birth on the prison floor, and one of the female guards had to cut the baby’s umbilical cord with her fingernails! True story. I kept imagining Foxy Brown in that kind of distress. Which sorta amused me. I mean no! That’s horrible, not even Foxy Brown should be subjected to such atrocities. But if anyone should, it’d be her. Oops. Well it turns out that won’t be happening anytime soon, unless Foxy manages to get knocked up by a sexually ambiguous cellmate.
“It turns out that the only thing Foxy Brown is expecting to do in jail is promote a record. Contrary to the buzz set off by the Chyna Doll rapper’s own attorneys, Brown is not three months pregnant, according to her manager, Chaz Williams.
“‘And to the pregnancy rumors, this is the official statement: She is not pregnant,’ Williams said Wednesday. Brown is currently behind bars at Rikers Island on New York’s East River, her home for the next year for violating her probation in connection with her 2004 throw-down in a Manhattan nail salon.
“‘This is just a temporary situation,’ Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, said in a statement. ‘I made my bed and have no problem lying in it. My will is steady. What doesn’t kill me will only make me stronger.’
Brown has not formally addressed the pregnancy talk, but she was quoted by the New York Post’s Page Six on Aug. 20, two days before she was locked up, saying, ‘I’m getting married in September. I’m pregnant.’ And even one of her lawyers said that she was expecting.
“‘She’s getting married, she’s three months pregnant, she signed a record deal two weeks ago and she is in contract for a reality TV show’ New York State Senator John Sampson told Jackson on Aug. 22 to stir sympathy for the jail-bound entertainer.”

Oops! What are the odds the Foxy was misquoted at such a convenient time? Or that her lawyer was too? Pretty slim I bet. I guess there’s a chance that she was pregnant and had a miscarriage due to the stress of all the court stuff, but don’t you think she’d be blabbing about that, too? There’s really nothing Foxy won’t say or do to get her way. The rules apply to everyone else. Wanna make up a pregnancy so you don’t have to do time for your multiple crimes? That’s fine, you’re special. Really though, how did she think she’d get away with that? At some point there won’t be a baby, and I’m guessing people are going to put two and two together and start to get suspicious. She’s obviously allowed to lie to the press, but she could get in trouble for lying to the court. That would make me really, really happy. Especially if, someday when she does get pregnant, they make her give birth in a jail cell, as a retroactive punishment.
