Reports have been going aroudn that state Foxy Brown was getting celebrity special treatment while she was serving her prison sentnece last year, but now a corrections spokesman has denied the claims. Stephen Morello recently replied to the stories that Foxy Brown was allowed to wear her Gucci sneakers in jail and even got media interviews.
Morello said yesterday (June 21) that Brown's 2008 jailhouse interview and photo shoot with a hip-hop magazine, her sporting Gucci sneakers and a Fendi scarf in the prison, and purported extended visits in her cell with a chaplain fell within normal guidelines. "Inmates were entitled to wear their own clothing," he explained. "That's her choice. The interviews were approved by the [Department of Correction's] Department of Media Services. We do it as a matter of routine." He noted that The Post has conducted many interviews in city jails and that Brown's lasted for about one hour, which is standard procedure.
