Less than a week after Remy Ma turned herself into police, the rapper's legal team is speaking out to address the assault claims made by "Love & Hip Hop" star Brittney "Bri" Taylor.

As you know, Brittney claims Remy gave her a black eye backstage at Irving Plaza in New York City, where Remy Ma was scheduled to perform for a cancer benefit concert. Once the police started investigating, Remy was spotted wearing an ankle monitor around her ankle.

On May 1st, she voluntarily turned herself into police and was promptly released on a $1500 cash bail with a pending charge of a misdemeanor. The judge ordered a protective order, which means Remy can not have any contact with Bri. The judge also set an 8pm curfew for Rem. Remy's lawyers - New York Criminal Lawyer Dawn Florio and her legal consultant/New York Civil Rights Lawyer Eric Sanders - claim there's credible evidence that the assault accusation is nothing more than an attempt at a quick money come-up.

In a statement sent to us, Remy's legal team explains:

In addition to the fact that Taylor bypassed numerous police officers that were on the scene to post allegations on her Instagram page and hired a civil lawyer, who is known for high profile lawsuits, both of Remy’s lawyers assert there's credible evidence to support that this is a baseless case and nothing more than a money grab attempt.

As police investigated, Bri started building her own civil case against the rapper, asking Irving Plaza and the NYPD to hold on to any video footage, photos, investigative reports, and any other evidence in connection to her alleged physical altercation with Remy.

Florio pointed out that Bri made claims that the attack went down at 9:30pm, however, she said she has video proof that Remy was at home at that time.

The statement continues: 

Meanwhile, Remy remains focused on her family and taking care of her 4-month old daughter with her husband of 11 years, her new music being released and her clothing line ”Remy Ma By Vim Vixen” where each purchase drives her philanthropic efforts to support women & children impacted by incarceration, assisting with family reunification and career development for released women through The Remy Ma Foundation.

Remy’s only request is that her family be respected and she personally thanks all the fans fortheir unwavering love and support.

The "All The Way Up" rapper is still on parole and has approximately 85 days of supervision left of her 5-year post-release sentence. Her team argues that for the past 4 years and 9 months, Remy has been a model citizen by maintaining employment, completing all mandatory programs, staying drug free, adhering to all rules and has never even had a curfew violation.

Remy's homie/collaborator Fat Joe recently spoke out in support of Remy:

 

 

We'll just have to wait and see how this all plays out.
