Remy Ma has been arrested and charged with assault. The 38-year-old rapper turned herself in to authorities with her attorney at her side. She was then booked for a misdemeanour.
The charges allegedly stem from an incident that took place at Manhattan’s Irving Plaza on April 16.
Brittney Taylor claimed that Remy Ma punched her in the face during an alleged backstage altercation at the Pretty Lou Benefit Concert. Taylor had been prepping a civil suit, but will now fully cooperate with authorities, according to her lawyer.
Following the dispute, Brittney Taylor, 29, went public with what had happened to her eye in a since-deleted Instagram post last month.
“So, here am I on my way to a very important meeting and it’s hard to even focus because of what occurred last night,” she wrote. “I didn’t wanna bring it to social media because It’s pretty embarrassing and not a good look tbh. I tried my best to cover it up with makeup and move on but that still didn’t work. My Question is @remyma why did you really do this?”
