AceShowbiz - Remy Ma has been released after being arrested for allegedly attacking her "Love & Hip Hop: New York" cast mate Brittney Taylor. The rapper is currently free on a $1,500 bail which she posted on Wednesday afternoon, May 1.
Captured on TMZ's camera when leaving the court, Remy remained silence on the accusations, mumbling the word "What?" as if she was confused when asked what made her turn herself in to police. Joined by her husband Papoose who held her hand, she said that she's "okay" though.
Meanwhile, her attorney Dawn Florio claimed the accusations made by Brittney are a lie. Sharing the details, the attorney said that Brittney claimed the attack happened at 9:30 P.M., but there's a video that proves Rema was at home at the time. The attorney added it was suspicious that Brittney lawyered up with a civil attorney immediately after the attack.
Per condition of her release, the judge ordered a protective order which bans Remy from having any contact with Brittney. The 38-year-old hip-hop star will also have an 8 P.M. curfew.
Remy is accused of punching Brittney at Pretty Lou Benefit Concert hosted by Remy's longtime friend and collaborator Fat Joe inside New York's Irving Plaza in April. It was reported that the raptress, whose real name is Reminisce Smith, punched her "LHH" co-star in the face after a misunderstanding regarding an incident involving Remy's stepdaughter Dejanae.
Brittney told the New York Daily News Remy didn't believe when she said she was protecting Dejanae from a man, instead of attempting to attack her during a spring break to Miami. "She was like, 'That's not what I heard,' and she punched me in the face," Brittney said. She was allegedly treated for minor injuries, including a bruised right eye.
Remy turned herself in to the 13th Precinct detective squad in Manhattan earlier on Wednesday and was booked for misdemeanor assault. Brittney's attorney Sanford Rubenstein insisted this is real and stressed that Brittney "has confidence in our system of justice and will continue to fully cooperate with the authorities."
