Remy Ma is currently behind bars. The New York-based rapper was arrested on Wednesday, May 1, 2019,  after turning herself into authorities over an assault case, according to News 12 Bronx.

The incident allegedly took place on April 16 and involved “Love & Hip Hop New York” star Brittney Taylor.

During the Pretty Lou benefit concert at Irving Plaza near Union Square, Remy Ma and Taylor apparently exchanged words and their disagreement allegedly turned violent.

Taylor told police that Remy Ma punched her in the face during their argument. The two had a history of disagreements during the filming of “Love & Hip Hop New York.”

Over the past few weeks, Taylor has hired lawyers and will likely file a civil suit against Remy Ma.

The “Lean Back” rapper maintains her innocence and will fight the misdemeanor assault charges in court.
