Rapper Foxy Brown Kicked Off Cruise — Because of Fingernails?!

Foxy Brown is no stranger to crazy nail salon antics. In 2004, she faced assault charges for allegedly beating up two nail salon employees. And in 2007, she was again accused of beating up a beauty salon employee.
Now the rapper’s alleged anger issues have once again landed her in “hot water.” According to celebrity website TMZ.com, Brown was kicked off a Royal Caribbean cruise after flipping out after missing her manicure appointment on board the ship.
Passengers on the cruise told TMZ that Brown showed up for her nail appointment three hours late and when the salon employees told her they couldn‘t accommodate her, she went “completely ballistic.”
According to sources, security had to remove her from the salon and she was supervised until the ship dropped anchor in the Cayman Islands two days later. She was then removed from the ship and escorted to a flight home. 
Brown’s people are now saying she was always scheduled to get off the ship in Grand Cayman, after fulfilling contractual obligations to perform on board as part of a radio station promotion. They also told the syndicated news program Inside Edition, “She did receive a service on the boat and it was to her satisfaction.”
Royal Caribbean has since stated, “There was a situation in the spa. Ms. Brown was late to her spa appointment twice and was not happy to have to be rescheduled each time. However the staff were eventually able to accommodate her and completed the service she needed.”
There is no way this is acceptable behavior — in a salon or anywhere else for that matter. What would you do if you had a client like this? Have you ever had to deal with angry (and possibly abusive) clients? Leave us a note in Feedback.
