Entertainment: Foxy Brown 'Totally Deaf' Says Her Attorney Black Habits Articles Everyone has heard the rumors and reports of rapper Foxy Brown's loss of hearing, but it seems that the news is worse than expected. According to various published reports, Brown is almost entirely deaf, said her lawyer in court on Monday.

Her attorney, Joseph Tacopina, revealed the new information after questioned to why he and his client were passing notes while sitting in a Manhattan Criminal Court for a 2004 salon assault charge.

"She's pretty much totally deaf now," Tacopina said to the Associated Press. "She can't hear me. We have to write things back and forth. Anything I have to communicate with her now has to be written."

Brown is expected to undergo surgery to hopefully reverse her hearing loss. She has refused to discuss the possible cause of the problem to the media.

Aside from the news about her hearing problem, Judge Melissa Jackson adjourned the rapper's case until December 23.

Brown is charged with misdemeanor assault, attempted assault and harassment, stemming from an incident in August of 2004, where she allegedly kicked and hit a nail salon manager after she refused to pay for a manicure/pedicure at Bloomie Nails in Manhattan's Chelsea district.

Brown pled not guilty to all charges back in April of this year, and continues to maintain her innocence.

According to the AP, Tacopina has stated that the nail salon workers, "don't want to proceed. This is a waste of their time, her (Brown's) time, and the public's time."
