Foxy Brown separated from fellow inmates

Rapper will spend the next 76 days alone in prison

Foxy Brown has been put in punitive segregation at Rikers Island prison after getting into a fight with a fellow inmate.

Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, is serving a year in prison after she violated her probation.

The rapper was on probation after assaulting staff at a branch of Bloomies nail salon in New York City.

She was later involved in a fight with a staff member of a beauty shop in Florida, was arrested for traffic violations in New Jersey and accused of assaulting a Brooklyn neighbour with her mobile phone.

Punitive segregation means that Brown will be isolated in a cell for up to 23 hours each day.
