Troubled rocker Foxy Brown remained behind bars as her bid for freedom was denied by a Manhattan Supreme Court justice Monday August 27th.

The Brooklyn native filed suit against the Correction Department on Monday, claiming that a judge's decision to lock her up for alleged probation violations was "arbitrary" and "unlawful." The New York Post reported Brown claimed in her court filing that she is "suffering greatly" at Rikers Island prison.

However, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Laura Ward denied Brown's application for release, about which the star's lawyer Ikiesha Al-Shabazz said "We're going to file an appeal."

Brown, who recently revealed that she is three months pregnant and engaged to be married, was ordered to prison Wednesday morning August 22nd by Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Melissa Jackson for violating the terms of her probation agreement. She will be held in jail until her next hearing on September 7th.
