Foxy Brown's former manager has spoken out about her client's "self-destructive behaviour", insisting the hip-hop star needs help.
The rapper flew into a rage earlier this week (beg03Jan11) and took to her Twitter.com page to publicly criticise her representative Bernadette Brennan, alleging she had been posing as her manager and releasing "fake" news about her career.
Brown - real name Inga Marchand - claimed to have contacted her lawyers to prepare a lawsuit against Brennan, over allegations she distributed a false press release about the star's musical plans.
Brennan has now spoken out about the accusations, insisting she can't understand Brown's motives and vowing to take legal action of her own.
She tells the New York Daily News, "It's always sad when an artist has everything they need at their fingertips but still displays such self-destructive behaviour. I hope she gets the help she needs. I was one of the few people in her corner."
Brennan tells the publication she plans to sue Brown for costing her more than $100,000 (£66,667) in studio fees, among other expenses.
