In a recent appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, Remy Ma revealed that she never actually shot anyone or that the woman was her friend.
When asked by Wendy Williams about her time in prison, the Love & Hip Hop star told the host that the information circulating about what transpired when she got locked up in 2007 was not accurate. In fact, Remy disputes the claim that she shot her best friend. Instead, she says she didn’t even know the woman, Makeda Barnes-Joseph.
“Do y’all really think every time the DA, the judge, the jury got it right every single time? No. They didn’t,” she said. “Did not know this girl, wasn’t my best friend, all of these things that was said over these years were not true, but once you’re in prison, no one cares. I didn’t shoot anybody!”
It was initially reported that Remy shot one of her good friends over missing cash. The rapper maintained her innocence but was still convicted and sentenced to eight years in prison on charges of intentional assault, weapons possession, and attempted coercion. She served six of the eight years and was released in 2016.
