Remy Ma and her team have spent the last week combatting allegations of assault from LHHNY Star Brittney Taylor after she claimed Remy punched her in the face at a benefit show in Irving Plaza. The rapper did turn herself in following an arrest warrant for the incident and has since been released on $1500 bond, but now, her team says they have evidence that could toss Taylor’s claims right out of the window.
According to TMZ, Remy’s legal team says there’s evidence that contradicts Taylor’s claim; home surveillance video that reportedly shows Remy at her residence during the time of the alleged incident. Remy’s lawyer Dawn Florio says the venue has no video or photographic evidence of Taylor’s injury from the alleged altercation. Reports state the incident happened around 9:30 p.m. but Remy didn’t enter the venue until after 10:30 p.m.
Remy has less than 90 days left of her five-year post-prison release supervision, and the Bronx native has remained focused on creating new music, all while promoting her various projects. Remy’s publicist issued a statement explaining the rapper’s situation and even called Taylor’s accusations into question.
The statement reads, “In addition to the fact that Taylor bypassed numerous police officers that were on the scene to post allegations on her Instagram page and hired a civil lawyer, who is known for high profile lawsuits, both of Remy’s lawyers assert there’s credible evidence to support that this is a baseless case and nothing more than a money grab attempt.”
The statement continues: “Remy is currently still on parole. She has approximately 85 days of supervision left of her 5-year post-release sentence. Nevertheless, for the past 4 years and 9 months, she has been a model citizen by maintaining employment, completing all mandatory programs, staying drug-free, adhering to all rules and has never even had a curfew violation. … Remy’s only request is that her family be respected and she personally thanks all the fans for their unwavering love and support.”
