Why Has Foxy Brown Been Sequestered From Gen Pop?

(Between the “Daily Swarm keeps flogging the MBV reunion” thing and the “Jay-Z threatens to throw Rihanna out a window” nonsense that I saw on a few of the hip-hop blogs, it seems to be a good week for unsubtantiated rumors. And everyone certainly loves a Foxy Brown-related post, now don’t they?) XXL reports that crazy ol’ Inga has been forced to eat her prison gruel and thow the medicine ball around while separated from the other inmates due to “unknown security reasons.” And the results are apparently not pretty:

“She’s [alone] all day, every day,” inmate Donalay tells the NY Post. “They’re just keeping her away from everybody.” Teresa Pandolfo, an inmate who was placed in a cellblock near Foxy, also tells the Post, “Everyone who passes by looks at her. She’s usually sleeping or reading her books.” Pandolfo also says Foxy’s looks have taken a toll from her stay at Rikers. “Her hair looks like whoever did it ran,” she says. “That’s how much the weave is coming apart.” Through interviews with ex-inmates, the Post reports that correctional officers at Rikers have threatened inmates not to look or interact with Foxy. Regardless, “She’s friendly,” says Thomas. “She’s not uppity.”

But why? Did she shiv someone in the laundry room? Has another prisoner put a bounty on her rapidly fraying weave? Okay, it’s probably something boringly prosaic like “quasi-famous people get special privleges.” The Oz-esque scenarios I’m working out in my head are way better.
