Remy Ma is in police custody on a misdemeanor battery charge after turning herself in on Wednesday. The rapper was arrested after Love & Hip Hop co-star Brittney Taylor accused her of assault. The rapper might be headed back to prison after violating her parole stemming from a shooting incident outside a Manhattan nightclub in 2007.

Brittney, who starred in Love & Hip Hop: NY season 8, displayed a black eye in a video posted to her Instagram page after being attacked by Remy earlier this month.

Remy mocked Brittney by posting Instagram photos that showed her wearing an ankle monitor (above).

Brittney's lawyer was not impressed with Remy's jokes.

"This arrest demonstrates how serious this matter is," lawyer Sandford Rubenstein told a local ABC affiliate. "It is real life and not reality TV entertainment. The victim, Brittney Taylor, has confidence in our system of justice and will continue to fully cooperate with the authorities."

When asked what prompted the incident, Rubinstein said a dispute between Brittney and Remy's stepchild led to an argument. "A conversation did take place involving Remy Ma's stepchild. I don't have any details with regard to the specifics of the conversation, but that's what led up to the event."

Remy, 38, served time in prison for shooting Makeda Barnes-Joseph outside a Manhattan nightspot in 2007. She was convicted of the lesser charges of assault and illegal weapon possession in March 2008 and released from prison in 2015.

The judge noted that Remy, who was born Reminisce Smith, showed no remorse for the shooting since she rifled through the victim's purse looking for stolen money, after shooting the victim in the abdomen.

    Rem you kno/knew better!

    Brittney not as tough as she was when she was jumping up fighting on tv

    I dont like that outfit rem has on looks weird or maybe it the stance

    Do better Rem!

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Wtf was she on..A brand new kid..Did postpartum play a part in the dumbness of it all..or are you just as ratchet as the day u came out of living this supposedly do better life after prison?!

  • NewNew
  • Pamela

    Why does she insist on resolving issues with violence? She needs to be a good role model to her kids by acting right. Sheesh.

  • Judge Mental Will

    I believe Remy did this, if you looked at love and hip hop reunion, Remy bever cared for the care anyways. If I shoot everyone that stolen money from ne half of my family would be dead. Word on the street is Remy step daughter is a nasty sslluutt anyway.

  • BythegraceofGodIcanexplain

    She need some therapy.She's having PTSD on balancing from the gutta to the good. I can't believe this happened.What in Z h3ll was she thinking? Maybe she turned hersef in to explain her story. If this is a Pr stunt, I'm done.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    But who calls the police cuz you lost(obviously) a fight?!?! Where I'm from, you took the "L" and kept it moving. Internet Gangsta's ...and that's def what this little girl is...be doing the most but when its time to throw them hands they want cry foul. Remy should have known better, but with that being said ain't no telling what this child said to make Remy hit her. We all know it doesn't take much to set her off!!

  • MNjumpoffacliff

    After my stint in jail I would have to walk away from situations because of this result smh. Ain't no way....

  • 100milesperhour

    So the punch stemmed from beef between Pap's daughter & Brittany. The scene Pap's daughter was in on LHH, she was disrespectful to Remy w/a a slick mouth. She doesn't seem about nothing. I can see her being in stupid street beef.

  • luVn_liFe…

    If someone put's their hands on me Im Calling the POLICE first! If Remy put her hands on Brit then she Should be in jail. She needs to grow up,keep hr hands to her self and raise her daughter.

  • dontgetblocked

    When I was young, I was given very good advice. Don't put yourself in bad situations. If you don't like someone and might go the phuck off...avoid them. The consequences aren't worth it. Furthermore, it's ridiculous to put your hands on anyone ...unless it's self-defense. Then I'll beat your damn azz!

  • luVn_liFe…

    postpartum MIGHT be a good defense??

  • BythegraceofGodIcanexplain

    Knowing her, she's like peace out. I can tell on that talk show that she don't like how they make money now.She's like you all can have this ish. Blu Ivy will be making songs bout time she gets out. Noooooo Remy

  • dontgetblocked

    I'll call the police in a second. You can't hit folks nowadays. Most people aren't down with that street code. Imma snitch!

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Repeat after me, Remy and all the other reality folks who have forgotten/don't know the difference, "This is real life and not reality TV entertainment." Again. "It is real life and not reality TV entertainment."

  • dontgetblocked

    I had an old lady go off on me. 70 year sista talking about I ain't the one. I pullled out my phone and started recording while stating I was calling the police. That old gangster could have a knife or gun. Nope ...deal with the police...and in my town, they're bored and will be there in 30 seconds.

  • Chicagowise

    Isn't Remedy too old to be playing street games?

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    Welp... that answers my question on who calls the police. Thank you for clearing that up, Hun. I guess I just come from a different era and area. I understand Remy is older and Im not condoning what she did. But if you're big and bad enuff to get in my face with some bullchit then you big and bad enuff for me to get you out of my face. If she was defending herself then it is waht it is. But I cant see her just hitting the little girl for no reason

  • dontgetblocked

    I want to punch the hell out of those smart mouth white girls and women I work with...but do I? No. It's a struggle to keep from stomping them into the ground. I use my brain instead...doing excellent work and making them look stupid. It's more satisfying.

  • Lisa Left Eye

    Remy is a dam fool. new baby new chance at life just to get caught up in same old b.s. Smh!

  • Lisa Left Eye

    Yea u definitely come from a different era. A dam stupid 1 no disrespect

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    How is it stupid to defend yourself or your family? If that was what she was doing. We don't even know what happened yet! Have you seen the videos this girl posts and how she acts even face to face with some of the other people on the show? Remy had to tell her at one reunion sit down and stop starting stuff with people because she was doing the most. And maybe you just come from an era where you think you can say anything to anybody and nothing happens. Which is also very stupid...NO DISRESPECT :)

  • BEANTOWN BULLI

    This bitch a rat???!!! Why she didn't throw them hands???!!! Her lil ass on reality t.v like she about that life???? Pap is pissed!!! Damn now imma have to write Remy!!!!

  • Blak

    Petty idiot. I gave her a chance but now I hope she loses everything...the man, career, money, kids, everything just done because she's a big idiot

  • Li-Wright

    I dunno....I wonder about these so-called rappers. Seems every black man/woman is calling themselves rapper. Is that code for "gangster" because I want to know how they make their money. On Atlanta, Paperboy makes his money not by rapping but by dealing weed. He's never held a job in his life, so everytime I see the word "rapper" I think of Paperboy.
    And for this woman to do anything half-way criminal having already served time....she should be a nun. She should be seen and not heard. And the victim is probably determined to send Remy back to prison.

  • speakinmymind

    GIRL bye! Unless Brit hit Remy first, then Remy had no legal justification to hit her. And even if Brit did hit Remy, then Remy should have called the police and filed charges, especially considering she is on PAROLE. You can only defend yourself if you were struck first or were in reasonable fear for your life. Further, even if you were struck first and hit the other person back the police can still choose to arrest one or both parties for simple assault/simple battery. The risk was too great for Remy to even be involved in the situation PERIODT!

    Folks better learn the law and stop worrying about dumbass street cred. FOH with this bird ass mentality.

  • A D N

    What kind of issues do you have with them?

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    Well if you go back read what I said..which waaaas I don’t condone what she did. I asked the question of who calls the cops when they get in a fight and lose? I also stated we don’t even know wtf happened yet. But just like with everything else folks jumping to conclusions and giving opinions on shyt they know nothing about. Reading is fundamental...but you got to use term bird mentality today so one up for you!

  • Renee26

    Swear!! ???

  • Clopretty

    That girl ain't gone ever make it in the business now lmao smh she just buried herself! Nobody knew the girl before now you're known as a snitch! smh ain't nobody going to work with a snitch. But this is the shit Papoose be talking about, putting herself in situations knowing she cant hold her anger! She should've called in reinforcements to handle her light weight.

  • Renee26
  • Lisa Left Eye

    The law of the land criminalizes PHYSICAL assault or direct implications of physical assault. Sh*t talking or running off at the mouth is not a crime. Is it morally wrong, unethical? Sure. But it's not a crime. Hood rules may govern the hood, but not mainstream America or society more holistically. When the hood gets its own constitution, prison, judges and laws, then u can apply those hood rules to others. Until then abide by the law of the land plz

  • Renee26

    She needs a bigger top

  • BythegraceofGodIcanexplain

    Lol.

  • Lisa Left Eye

    If she win the civil case she might come out better than she wud have being in the "industry ". These rappers, with some exceptions, aren't cashing any major checks

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    But isn’t this little girl hood too? Isn’t she from the streets also? Doesn’t she live by that ideology as well? That’s all I’m saying.. if you say you with the shyts then be about it and don’t go call the police cuz the lie detector (this fade) determined that was a lie. ?????

  • Clopretty

    You right! She might win some money but her dreams is to be a known artist....... that's fasho not happening now and i'm sure whatever little check she gets won't be enough to support her lifestyle for long lol

  • Alextra Ballard

    Remy,what in thee hell where yew thinking? ..yo dumb asz spent six years away from your son because yew were behind bars,now yew have a new baby and you’re byke behind bars again. Yew to old fa this dumb shidt.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I betchu she handles papoose as well

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Went to prison for some dumb mess, now allowing another hood rat to steal your time. Remy gotta grow up. She got a WHOLE new baby that somebody else gotta raise because she couldn't keep her cool.

  • NeverSurprised

    She's being repped by Sanford Rubinstein and he is extremely high profile in NY. He is known for getting VERY hefty settlements.

  • tia

    Oh wow...if you listen to Remy you can tell she has a short ass fuse and doesn't take crap. But there comes a time in life where we put those old things behind us. She has a beautiful marriage and brand new bouncing baby girl. Especially, when you already been in the pen, you dont have screw ups like this. When you know better you do better.

  • speakinmymind

    Girl please, if she garners a YouTube hit or gets the attention of industry execs who think there's money to be made off her, fukk some damn snitch shyt...money trumps everything. Producers look for ANYBODY they think they can make money with.

  • speakinmymind

    Question: I asked the question of who calls the cops when they get in a fight and lose?

    Answer: A person, in this case Brit, who was assaulted. The legal term(s) for a fight is physical altercation, simple assault, simple battery, etc. One or both parties can report the crime to police or police can decide to arrest one or both parties involved in the altercation if they are called to the scene. Remy will give a statement to police and the DA will decide how to move forward. Remy's mere presence and/or involvement in any way could result in her parole being revoked, whether they both fought or only Brit was assaulted.

    Those are the facts. #RIF

  • Wile E. Coli

    I wonder how many years it would be if you added up all the prison time so-called 'rappers' do.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    Thank you for clearing that up.

  • Keke

    I still don't understand why she wasn't charged with attempted murder on her 1st charge, she got lucky, she pretty much got away with shooting someone, she should've sat her big azz down and count her lucky stars, but no she had to go and punch somebody knowing that chick was only waiting to send her back to jail.
    #areudumb

  • PrettyNetty28

    Truth.

  • NeverSurprised

    And she was lucky enough to have been able to resume her career after being locked up for 7 years. Not just resume it, but increase her profile and fatten her bank account with a tv series. Husband, family, career, new baby, and she is willing to risk it all just because she can't control her temper.

  • speakinmymind

    ???

  • Bashi22

    I swear Remy does have mental issues

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Off topic: I was forced to delete Lil Yachty's mom's post because of some negative comments. See, this is why I can't do anything nice for y'all. ?

  • DroneRivers

    I actually felt bad for her cuz I read the comments under her black eye Instagram post and she was getting threats left and right! Random people saying stuff like "If Remy gets in trouble for this, I'M gonna black your eye next!" and "You gonna get punched in your face every week for this"

  • Neicey

    Dang. ?. They didn't mean it. Well they probably did. We sorry Auntie.

  • And then there is that!

    Remy definently knows better and shouldn't have put her hands on ol girl. With that being said the internet, and reality t.v. has people thinking they can be mad disrespectful with no consequences. I think it is wack of anyone to provoke a fight, get an ass whooping then call the police. I don't care what anyone says. Take that "l" and keep it moving. Nothing in me tells me this chick is innocent. I can't see Remy putting her freedom and family at risk over nothing.

  • Ghost

    I feel sorry for the baby! Babies need their mother. She’s got to learn how to control that temper...Hope everything works out and she learns a lesson behind this madness! Smh

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    What negative comments most the comments I saw folks were talking about how nice it was

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    I said the same thing he know she crazy so he don’t even try her

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I deleted the worst ones.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Oh wow

  • NeverSurprised

    Thank you! Acting like a damn middle schooler waiting to fight someone in the playground.

  • Coy little wink

    Remy shot her friend over 3K...she is a savage. What else is new...

  • NeverSurprised

    I dont even consudsr it "snitching." If you assault someone, the police are the logical entity to be called. Now, Rubenstein is also going to see to it that the girl takes ALL of Remy's hard-earned money. Watch.

  • Chicagowise

    She needs to have several senior citizen priority seats!

  • dontgetblocked

    What? I liked that post. Her house was gorgeous. Let her spend her money on what she wants. A bunch of haters!

  • dontgetblocked

    The usual tattle telling, lying, trying to find problems with your work. Loud and frantic...when they're off their meds. A white woman with a little power is a total wreck at work. Most don't know what they're doing and landed the job because they're minorities.

  • Allihave2say

    So if you deleted the worst ones there was no need to delete the post. Let the haters hate. Meanwhile you started posting on the Kardashians again, that's the problem with your posts.

  • dontgetblocked

    A good blow to the face equals a big payday. I've got 911 on speed dial.

  • Allihave2say

    This trick was cancelled when she spoke against women securing child support for their children. Remy is a sociopath who duped and deceived Papoose.

  • Strappyheels

    EXACTLY

  • Bashi22

    Papoose must be mishandled by her every day. She needs intense angry management along with mental illness. She savage she shoots her friend for $3000.00

  • Jussjess25

    Wow, this women will forever be a convict. Didn't she just have a baby.. smh she is forgetting she is black with a rap sheet, they will put her ass in jail over something small as this smh.

  • Lisa Left Eye

    I don't watch lhh so I'm not familiar with her outside of this fiasco. I can only assume she doesn't subscribe to the law of the hood which is y she called the cops

  • Lisa Left Eye

    He need to get me a settlement then. I fell on Walmart's wet floor a couple months ago

  • Coy little wink

    She too old she like 40! Put a kimono on lose the midriff tops and cheesy 2 piece jogging suits. I can't with these old hoes....

  • Rhyme and Reason

    See this is what happens when you believe your own hype! Everyone was just celebrating her diss track on Nicki Minaj, things were going well! But, Remy is who she is, and this was so unnecessary!

    Meanwhile everyone claiming and hoping for Nicki’s demise are watching others unravel like Remy and Cardi!

    Lock her up! She's an animal

  • JENNYJONES1

    YOU'RE RIGHT B/C SHE WAS ALWAYS POPPING OFF, BUCKING, ALWAYS TRYING TO FIGHT ON LHH WHICH I'M SURE SHE WAS DOING AT REMY'S STEP DAUGHTER BUT GOT REMY'S FIST INSTEAD OF THE STEP DAUGHTER'S.........JENNY JONES!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    IF REMY HAS ANY TYPE OF LAWYER THEY WILL PULL ALL OF BRITTNEY'S FOOTAGE FROM L&HH WHERE SHE IS AGGRESSIVE, TRYING TO ATTACK PEOPLE, JUMPING ON TABLES, ETC TO SHOW HER REAL CHARACTER OF BEING A VIOLENT PERSON TO CLAIM A SELF DEFENSE CASE FOR REMY..........JENNY JONES!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    NOT IF SHE'S DEFENDING HER KID. SHE AND PAP ARE SERIOUS ABOUT THEIR CHURREN AND BRITTNEY HAS DEMONSTRATED HER VIOLENT TENDENCIES ALL L&HH WHICH WORKS IN REMY'S FAVOR.........JENNY JONES!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    THIS IS ABOUT MONEY FOR BRITTNEY. SHE DOESN'T WANT JAIL FOR REMY JUST SOME MONEY B/C SHE'S STRUGGLING BAD WHICH SHE CRIED ABOUT ON THE SHOW B/C SHE HAS NO CAREER AND IT'S NOT LIKE SHE'S A BIG CHARACTER ON THE SHOW SO I'M SURE WHATEVER CHECKS SHE GETS AREN'T BIG. REMY OFFER HER SOME MONEY AND SHE'LL CATCH AMNESIA FORGETTING HOW TO GET TO THE COURTHOUSE.........JENNY JONES!!!

  • bemetoo

    She sure looks like one

    I thought it was 1k she’s a bum dumb bih

  • bemetoo

    It was $1000

  • bemetoo

    Remy is herself a hood rat with a couple dollars

  • NeverSurprised

    Rubenstein represented Amadou Diallo when he was assaulted in that police precinct bathroom years ago. He got him $8 million . A couple of years ago he got a $60mil settlement from a hospital for a client who lost a leg or something. He doesn't play. He is sooo well connected in NY legal circles that it isn't even funny.

  • Coy little wink

    I wonder why no one has called her about that. Where is the outrage like with Cardi B robbing men? I mean Remy tried to kill that woman...plus has shown no remorse

  • oshh16

    This is why I am not a fan. Like what kind of person does that and if I am not mistaken the woman that was shot needs a colonoscopy bag for life.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Wait, I’m certainly not defending Nicki or blaming Remy or Cardi for her career falling off because I most definitely feel she’s had a great run, and is set for life!

    Also, I don’t know how or what she will do next...stank attitude and all!

    My point is when others (fans, Stans, or haters) wait or dig graves for others, or await for their demise, watch what happens!

    And, I stand by that!

  • NewNew

    That's true, but she was also tried, convicted and has served her time. The outrage regarding Cardi is that she's admitted to a crime and has gotten away scot free.

  • Daffanyrose

    I’m glad I can’t stand this ghetto bish

  • WiseGui

    Remy is proving to be a ghetto hood rat that belongs in a slammer. Did she. Or learn her lesson the first time??

    She just came out of prison and just had a baby and is back to doing the things that got her in the pen in the first place.

    She clearly needs counseling to deal with her anger issues because the next time she has a run in it might land her a life sentence. What is a mother of grown children and an infant doing fighting at a whole 38 years old?

  • Society has changed

    You can’t fix stupid!!!

  • Daffanyrose

    Yes she do and I hope they lock her ash up for the next 10yrs. She think because she’s a celebrity she’s above the law

  • Coy little wink

    no comparison to me. Remy disregarded that woman's LIFE. Cardi's victims were criminals...paying for sex. They lost money and maybe dignity but I doubt they even had that to begin with...

  • NewNew

    It's all bad, to be honest. I'm certainly not defending either woman's behavior, but at least one of them has faced some consequences (albeit she clearly didn't learn from them).
