Jail officials will not need to make maternity accommodations for Foxy Brown — her manager says the rapper isn’t pregnant, despite her lawyer’s courtroom contention that she was.
The revelation came Wednesday as her manager and Koch Records announced that Brown would release a new album while serving a one-year jail sentence.
Brown, who hasn’t released an album since 2001’s “Broken Silence,” was sentenced Friday to one year in jail for violating probation that stemmed from a fight with two manicurists in a New York City nail salon three years ago.
In August, defense lawyers told the court that Brown was three months pregnant. But in a statement released Wednesday, her manager, Chaz Williams, said: “And to the pregnancy rumors, this is the official statement: She is not pregnant.”[Source]
Remy Ma is in even deeper legal manure today, after allegedly having her heavies put the beatdown on the boyfriend of a potential witness in her earlier assault case.
TMZ has learned that Remy (real last name Smith) was at Players Club in the Bronx on August 19 when a tussle went down. At the club, Remy saw the boyfriend of a possible witness in her earlier case — in which she’s accused of the July 14 shooting of a friend she accused of stealing $2,000 from her purse — and allegedly had her posse rough him up, fracturing his face. A friend of the man was also injured, requiring hospitalization for a week.
In addition to the multiple assault and weapons charges she’s already facing for the July 14 incident, Manhattan DA spokesman Edison Alban tells TMZ that Ma is now facing charges of gang assault, tampering with a witness, intimidating a victim and third-degree assault. She was released on $250,000 bail, had to hand over her passport, and will be back in court September 20 to review her bail privileges.
MG Says: I am glad that Tyra is branching out, but she seems like the next celebrity to take Britney Spears place. Meaning she’s may not be playing with a full deck, and I see a meltdown in the future. Maybe that’s just her personality, but she seems more wacky each time I see her.

Sarah Chapman spoke with Sandra Rose, and had a few errors she wanted to clear up that was printed in Essence magazine in an interview with Kim Porter.
Sarah’s response to Kim’s assertion that she didn’t know her: “A lot of what you said is true about me and Kim. There’s so much more to the story than that. She definitely knows who I am,” said Sarah. “Yes, it’s true, we’ve had words. [Kim] knew about my pregnancy prior to her getting pregnant. In fact, Kim and I met [Sean] at the same time.”
Sarah stressed that she doesn’t seek out the spotlight: “That’s not for me. I don’t enjoy that. I’ll let Kim have that”
She also talked about the rumors that surrounded her pregnancy last year: “There’s been rumors out there that [Sean Combs] offered me a million dollars to not have the baby, said Sarah. “If he gave me a million dollars I wouldn’t be calling him every month for child support,” she joked. “I mean, he pays me on a monthly basis, but there’s rumors that he offered me a million dollars hush money.”
About her longterm relationship with Sean, Sarah said, “He and I are friends, we’ve always been friends. I’ve known him for a long time – 13 years exactly. Sarah adding that they dated “on and off” over those years. “I know it sounds very cliché, but we really are friends. It’s never been a situation where I’m trying to step on top of [Kim] or I’m trying to be in her position.”
Sarah expressed surprise that Kim dropped her name in the Essence interview. “She threw my name in that [expletive],” said Sarah, raising her voice slightly. Regarding Kim’s revelation that Kim didn’t speak to Sean Combs about Sarah’s baby until after her twins were born, Sarah said, “the scary part is that any woman can be with a man and not even mention to him ‘oh, I heard you got another woman pregnant’ – that’s really scary. For the longest time she never mentioned my pregnancy to him. She kept it a secret to herself so it wouldn’t take the shine off of her,” said Sarah. “I thought [Sean] was lying, but he said Kim never mentioned my pregnancy to him.”
