NEW YORK — Rapper Remy Ma was charged with assault Wednesday after she turned herself in to police.
She allegedly punched reality television star Brittney Taylor in the face at Irving Plaza. Ma was also charged with aggravated harassment and harassment during her arraignment.
Taylor, who appears on VH1’s reality series “Love & Hip Hop: New York,” posted a video on Instagram with a black eye on Wednesday, April 17, with the caption, “It’s hard to even focus because of what occurred last night… I tried my best to cover it up with make up and move on but that still didn’t work.”
Calling out the Bronx rapper directly, Taylor’s Instagram caption concludes with, “My question is @remyma why did you really do this?”
Her lawyer, Sanford Rubenstein, said Taylor is fully cooperating with police.
“This arrest demonstrates how serious this matter is, it is real life and not reality TV entertainment,” Sanford said. “The victim Brittney Taylor has confidence in our system of justice and will continue to fully cooperate with the authorities.”
Bail was set at $1,500 cash or bond, according to the District Attorney’s Officer. A temporary order of protection is in place.
Ma is next scheduled to appear in court on May 24.
