Brown's Fired Manager Hits Out At Album Comments
LATEST: Rapper FOXY BROWN's former manager CHAZ WILLIAMS has hit out at the star's accusations he compiled her new album "without her approval" during her time in jail - stating he didn't listen to the LP after it was recorded.
The star - real name Inga Marchand - claims she had no control over the content of Brooklyn Don Diva which was compiled during her eight-month spell behind bars and is due for release next month (Jun08).
And the rapper insists she had to terminate her working relationship with Williams after she was "riddled with grief over an album that was seemingly so carelessly orchestrated".
But Williams, the CEO of Black Hand Entertainment, refutes Marchand's accusations, insisting he only heard the album's material during production, and never gave the record a final listen.
He tells U.S. radio show Lip Service, "To tell you the truth, I didn't listen to the album after it was (recorded). I don't even have it."
Marchand claims she was so upset by the LP, she would normally of considered filing legal action but has decided to refrain from taking Williams to court after her recent legal woes.
The rapper was sent to prison in September last year (07) for violating her probation, stemming from a 2006 assault conviction for attacking two manicurists in 2004. She was released from New York's Rikers Prison last month (Apr08).
And Williams warns his former client her decision not to seek legal action against him is a wise one, saying he is "prepared" to take her on in court.
He adds, "I just want you to know that in times of peace you prepare for war, and you better bet I'm prepared, so I would advise as a cautionary measure, a caveat, don't even do it."
Following Marchand's release from prison she was sentenced to three years probation after pleading guilty to attacking a woman with her cellphone last year (Jul07).
