Rapper Foxy Brown and her reps want answers that no one seems to be addressing on the status of her missing luggage, reportedly containing over $100 thousand worth of merchandise, that disappeared from LAX Airport last weekend.
Foxy Brown, real name Inga Marchand, posted on her Instagram a sad and tragic account of what took place just hours before her scheduled Gay Pride Festival performance in Palm Springs, CA on Friday, May 13.
According to the Instagram post, the Ill Na Na rapper was violated when she went to the American Air baggage claim to retrieve her luggage only to find that it wasn't there. The Brooklyn rapper is referring to the incident as a "heist" as it was all caught on security footage, and reported to detectives but nothing has been solved, the accused thief has still not been found and the incident has been reported to detectives.
ATTENTION FAMILY, you know I'm an exceedingly strong woman and have endured what would've flatlined most; but I need to air out a very personal, disturbing VIOLATION (which we plan to address further publicly). Fans saw my performance at the PALM SPRINGS, CALI GAY PRIDE FESTIVAL last FRIDAY but what you guys didn't know...(trusting the investigative process takes it's course) is that I was ROBBED hours before the show (luggage stolen on videotape) at LAX AIRPORT for over 100K worth of my most valuable, LUXURY possessions at the @AMERICANAIR BAGGAGE CLAIM. Still, (filled with ineffable fury) I could NOT disappoint my LGBT FANS; mustered the strength to perform and lit the stage! Airport security was immediately alerted and we've spoken to Detectives, but the THIEF who's on CAMERA FOOTAGE is still on these streets!!! Material things can very well be replaced, but some items are true FOX VINTAGE and we're horrified that a week later we have NO answers. We intend to vigorously pursue until JUSTICE is served and my possessions found. My ABIDING FAITH IN CHRIST kept me thru my most vicious storms, so to THIS just know I'm SUITED UP IN HIS ARMOR watch him MOVE! Not just the "protocol" of the AIRLINE but the slow feedback from law enforcement shocks the conscience. I'm definitely NO "conspiracy theorist" but we were there the night my close friend BIGGIE was murdered and more often than not, HIP HOP stars are blatantly targeted or their plights swept under the rug. Cut from the cloth of the "go hard" who, (before FOXY BROWN ever existed) chose not to retreat but go hard, so every young black boy and girl is afforded swift justice when VIOLATED, gives us the fight to find this bastard. Thank You @TMZ_TV & HARVEY LEVIN WE JUST WANT ANSWERS! #WatchGOD @rachelnoerd

A rep from Brown's camp reached out to TMZ to report the theft and named some of the expensive personal items that were in her luggage. According to the site, Fox traveled with "Birkin bags, diamond jewelry and 8 pairs of high-end shoes." Even the luggage itself was reportedly an expensive high-end "Gucci suitcase."
In the Instagram post Brown mentioned how she is aware that "material things can very well be replaced" but she feels ignored by authorities who, at the time of this article, had yet to make any arrest or locate her luxury possessions that she describes as "Fox Vintage." The rapper is seeking justice and plans to pursue this violation until something is done.
Despite the turmoil at the airport, the 37-year-old still managed to show up for her gig in Palm Springs and give the crowd what they wanted -- a great show.
