The Rumor: Foxy was accused of not paying her hairdresser $900 for a weave.
What Foxy Said: “What was alleged from this beast was something that’s never been attributed to my name. Ever.”
Why It’s Bizarre: We’re not sure who to believe after watching that convincing Instagram video of Foxy’s hair stylist ambushing the rapper over her unpaid debt. Foxy used the negative press to announce she’s releasing her own hair line in the near future.

The Rumor: Foxy and Jay Z had a sexual relationship in the ’90s.
What Foxy Said: “Niggas heard I fucked with Ross and had a nigga baby/They said I fucked with Nas and now they say it’s AZ, but on the low, the real nigga was Jay-Z”
Why It’s Bizarre: Even if those lyrics are true, Jay Z isn’t the type of guy you’d want to cross if he wanted you to keep a secret. Either way, Foxy has always publicly denied the long standing rumors regarding her relationship with Jay in the early stages of their careers. Smart girl.
The Rumor: Foxy was kicked off of Tom Joyner’s cruise ship for being too rowdy.
What Foxy Said: “Lying ass! It was absolutely nothing but LUV from my arrival to the day I left.”
Why It’s Bizarre: Even Tom Joyner later came out and tried to defuse the rumors about Fox being kicked off his cruise, but the damage was already done. The public media had already believed Foxy was a troublemaker so it was easy to accept Foxy was the one causing trouble that night.

The Rumor: Foxy claimed she was engaged to rapper Rick Ross.
What Foxy Said: “Ask Ross ’bout this 7 carat rock”
Why It’s Bizarre: When MTV did ask Rozay about it, he responded “The engagement is speculation. I’m married to the money.” Uh, awkward, much?

What (Foxy’s Manager) Said: “And to the pregnancy rumors, this is the official statement: She is not pregnant.”
Why It’s Bizarre: We’re not sure why Inga didn’t address this rumor head on like she usually does, but we haven’t seen any baby bump nor a child since then so we can go ahead and classify this as bogus.

The Rumor: Foxy was set to settle her long time beef with Lil’ Kim at the 2013 Summer Jam.
What Foxy Says: “Totally erroneous and buffoonish”
Why It’s Bizarre: At this point, the rap world should stop holding it’s breath for a reconciliation. These two chicks will never get along. Thankfully, the blatant jabs these ladies would constantly throw at each other are kept to a minimum these days.

The Rumor: Foxy Brown has beef with Nicki Minaj.
What Foxy Says: “What’s funny, I actually applaud Nicki… I think she’s doing an incredible job of branding herself. When you’re a boss bitch, you give it up. Send her a Chanel bag or something. If you’re winning, you’re winning That’s just how I see it.”
Why It’s Bizarre: It’s admirable to see Foxy handle this alleged “beef” like a grown woman. With the absence of female rappers in today’s hip-hop atmosphere, it would be beneficial for the ladies in the game to stick together and dominate instead of participating in petty cat fights on wax.
