Remy Ma appeared in criminal court on Wednesday to post bail for a misdemeanor assault charge, one month after she was accused of punching “Love & Hip Hop” co-star Brittney Taylor in the face.


The 38-year-old rapper turned herself to NYPD on Wednesday, almost one month after the alleged assault took place backstage during the Pretty Lou Benefit Concert at Irving Plaza near Union Square, on April 16.


Remy was charged with misdemeanor assault and released on a $1,500 bond. She appeared in court with husband Papoose, who held her hand as they entered the courtroom and stood by her side as they left.

According to TMZ, the judge also established a protective order, meaning Remy is not to have any contact with Taylor. Remy will also have an 8 PM curfew.

“This arrest demonstrates how serious this matter is, it is real life and not reality TV entertainment," Taylor’s lawyer, Sanford Rubenstein, said in a statement to the Associated Press. "The victim Brittney Taylor has confidence in our system of justice and will continue to cooperate with the authorities fully."


Remy’s lawyer, Dawn Florio, is denying the accusations, explaining that his client wasn’t even at the concert venue at the time Taylor alleges the attack took place.


“The complainant (Taylor) is a liar, and my client did not touch her," said Florio, vowing to fight the charge with witnessed and video surveillance evidence.

Taylor initially accused Remy of assaulting her while they were in the green room during the concert. She posted a now-deleted picture on Instagram showing off her bruised eye, adding in her caption:

“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. 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?”


This isn’t Remy’s first encounter with the law. She’s currently on her last three months of parole after spending six years in jail for shooting former friend Makeda Barnes-Joseph in the abdomen during a dispute in 2007.


Taylor’s accusations have spurred parole officers to tighten Remy’s parole conditions, requiring her to wear an ankle monitor and setting her curfew earlier.

Remy is set to appear in court again on May 24.
