Ms Brown, violated her probation after she assaulted her Brooklyn neighbor with her Blackberry phone back in July during a altercation with another woman.
"[Foxy said]: sometimes God has to humble you in order for you to realize who you actually are," Senator Sampson told reporters following the hearing. "When you get away from the glitz and glamour, you can find inner peace within yourself."
Sampson’s assessment of Brown’s demeanor is strikingly different from those of close family friends, who frequently visit Brown on Rikers Island.
According to family friend Geoffrey Davis, Brown only trusts her mother and her manager.
Last week, he told The New York Post that Brown has not changed at all.
"If they release her today, she'll be back in a week..," Geoffrey Davis, a family friend, told The New York Post last week. "I love her, and I have her best interests at heart, but I think she needs clinical help with anger management.”
Foxy Brown’s new album Brooklyn’s Don Diva is slated to hit stores on February 5.
