Rapper Foxy Brown is not pregnant, her manager has said - despite her lawyer telling a US court she was.
Foxy Brown has announced the release of a new album
The performer was sentenced to one year in jail last week for violating probation terms stemming from a fight with two manicurists in a hair salon.
Last month, defence lawyers told the New York court Brown was three months pregnant.
But manager Chaz Williams said: "To the pregnancy rumours, this is the statement. She is not pregnant."
Mr Williams made the statement as he confirmed the release of a new album by the rapper, Brooklyn's Don Diva.
A new single, Don't Surrender, is being released to radio stations, her Koch Records label said.
Brown was jailed after being arrested in Brooklyn on charges of hitting a woman with a mobile phone when the pair fought over the volume of the rapper's car stereo.
Her other probation violations included leaving New York state without permission and dropping out of court-ordered anger-management sessions with a psychologist.
"This is just a temporary situation," Brown said in a statement.
"I made my bed and have no problem lying in it. My will is steady. What doesn't kill me will only make me stronger."
Mr Williams said he visited Brown the day after sentencing, and her spirits were high.
"I expected nothing less. I was in court at sentencing and she didn't blink an eye, she's a strong girl," he told the Associated Press.
Criminal Court Judge Melissa Jackson told the rapper at her sentencing: "I'm not going to give you any more chances."
But Mr Williams responded: "I'm sorry Miss Jackson, we're not impressed, and definitely not stopping musically."
