Foxy Brown has been ordered to jail for violating her probation, police said Thursday

Brown (real name: Inga Marchand), 27, was remanded to state custody and ordered to jail by Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Melissa Jackson after two recent brushes with the law, the Associated Press reports. Brown has been ordered to remain jailed until a hearing on Sept. 5.

Last week, Brown surrendered to police on charges that she assaulted her Brooklyn neighbor with her BlackBerry device.

Then, just one day after her surrender, police in Mahwah, N.J., pulled the rapper over after she was spotted talking on her cell phone while driving her 2007 Land Rover.

Officers cited her for talking on the phone and failing to stop at a stop sign.

In addition, Brown gave police officers a false birth date and a variation of her name. Forced to admit her real identity, police reportedly learned that the musician was driving with a suspended license, the Associated Press reported.

Her Land Rover's registration also had been suspended.

Arresting officers took Brown to a station, where she was issued seven traffic tickets and released.

The Il Na Na rapper's probation stems from a 2004 argument in a nail salon; at the time, she pled guilty to misdemeanor assault charges.

Yet despite all of her legal troubles, Brown has made headlines of another sort: She apparently announced that she's pregnant, the New York Post reports.

According to the paper, the rapper was seen shopping at a New York City Bed, Bath & Beyond, where she said, "I'm getting married in September. I'm pregnant."

New York's local ABC station also reported last week on its Web site that Brown is three months' pregnant.
