A US judge has dismissed charges that rapper Foxy Brown violated a court order by mooning at her neighbour.

Prosecutors claimed that Brown broke the order by baring her buttocks at Arlene Raymond and screaming at her, in July 2010.

Brown was issued the protection order in 2008 after pleading guilty to harassing Raymond with her mobile phone.

She became famous in the 90s as a Jay-Z protege, and has released four albums.

In recent years she has attempted a series of come-backs but a jail sentence in 2008 and problems with hearing have hampered her efforts.

Her last album was a mixtape released in May 2008.

Foxy Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, also rapped in the hip hop group The Firm which featured New York rapper Nas.
