Following the alleged altercation, the “LHHNY” star reportedly sought treatment at Mount Sinai Hospital for her injury. She reported the incident to the police the next day; she apparently was too embarrassed by the incident to report it to police at the scene of the concert.

Remy, whose real name is Reminisce Smith, has not been charged or arrested for the supposed assault, but police are investigating.

She was scheduled to perform at the Irving Plaza event that night, but there’s no word on if she did or not. She has yet to address Taylor’s allegations or the current NYPD probe.

Taylor took to Instagram on Wednesday with a clip of her black eye and wrote, “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 Its pretty embarrassing and not a good look tbh. I tried my best to cover it up with make up and move on but that still didn’t work. My Question is @remyma why did you really do this?”

She also acquired attorney Sanford Rubenstein to represent her.

“She wants Remy Ma prosecuted for what she did to her,” Rubenstein told the Daily News.

In 2007, Remy served six years behind bars for shooting a close friend of hers in the chest over a money dispute. Although she was released from prison in 2014, she’s still on parole for the incident until the first of August.

The alleged crime has sparked a mass of reactions from fans and supporters of both Remy and Taylor.
