Foxy Brown’s Former Assistant Drops Charges
Rasheeda Ellis, the former assistant to Foxy Brown who sued her over alleged threats, today agreed to drop her complaints against the Brooklyn rapper. According to the Associated Press, Ellis decided to drop the charges against Foxy, which included an allegation of “terroristic threats,” in exchange for a mutual agreement stating that the two parties would not have contact with each other nor discuss the case with the media. Ellis originally claimed that the rapper refused to pay her a week’s salary and made threatening phone calls to her after she attempted to collect the money. Throughout the short trial, Foxy has maintained that she has never had a problem with Ellis and that she had no idea why she was being dragged into court. Foxy unsuccessfully requested that the judge bar reporters from taking her picture, and was subsequently ordered to remove her sunglasses in the courtroom. Neither she nor Ellis commented after the hearing.
