Foxy Brown Addresses Her Hearing Loss

When you’ve got Kimora Lee Simmons on your side, your press conference becomes her press conference. The photos tell all.

The 26-year-old rapper was diagnosed with sudden hearing loss in May while she was recording her upcoming album, she told reporters Thursday.

“I ask only for your continued prayers and compassion as I embrace the blessings of my journey,” Brown said, her voice at times choking up and tears coming to her eyes.

She was accompanied by supporters including Russell Simmons and his wife, Kimora Lee Simmons, and Brown’s new lawyer, Joseph Fleming.

Brown’s former lawyer, Joseph Tacopina, disclosed her hearing loss last week. He had been asked why they had exchanged notes while waiting in Manhattan Criminal Court for her case to be called on an unresolved 2004 assault charge. The two parted ways just days later.

Brown’s former lawyer has questioned her deaf claim.
