American rapper Foxy Brown has been jailed for 12 months after breaching the terms of her probation.

The 28-year-old was told by a New York judge that she had acted as if her celebrity status placed her above the law.

Brown – real name Inga Marchand – was found to have missed anger management classes and failed to have stayed out of trouble since assaulting two nail salon stylists three years ago.

At a hearing last month, Judge Melissa Jackson jailed the singer until yesterday's court appearance, and the rapper told the court: "Being in jail humbled me in a way I never imagined. I realise that this is not where I want to be."

But Judge Jackson countered that her apology came as "too little, too late".

"Probation is a gift that is given to the defendant and I feel very strongly that I gave her the chance to do what she wanted with her life," she continued.

Earlier this year Brown – whose album Chyna Doll in 1999 became the first from a female rap artist to top the Billboard 200 – was accused of assaulting her neighbour in a row over the volume of her car stereo.

She will be eligible for parole in eight months time if she behaves herself in jail.

At August's preliminary hearing, defence lawyers noted that their client was three months pregnant, but no mention of her pregnancy was made in court yesterday.
