Remy Ma is now a free woman after she turned herself in to the NYPD on Wednesday for allegedly assaulting fellow “Love & Hip-Hop: New York” cast mate Brittney Taylor. Taylor said Remy punched her at a Pretty Lou Benefit Concert, and as a result the rapper was slapped with a misdemeanor assault charge.
Since then, Remy’s longtime collaborator Fat Joe came to her defense on Instagram and said his rhyme partner has been a model parolee since being released from prison in 2014, so police should leave her alone.
Remy spent six years in prison for shooting a woman named Makeda Barnes-Joseph after the rapper accused her of stealing money.
“Family First PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE beware of the CLOUT CHASE is this Country truly ready for rehabilitation, are we truly FORGIVING,” wrote Joe next to a photo of himself holding Remy and Papoose‘s newborn daughter.
“Do we really believe in SECOND CHANCES,” he added. “Here we have a woman who did her time came home and has been a Model Citizen the only time she’s out her house is to work or in this case Donating her time with a FREE performance for CANCER RESEARCH.”
Joe also said there’s no way Remy could’ve assaulted Taylor, because there were a bevy of police officers at the concert and none of them saw anything. He also doubled own on his opinion that Taylor is clout chasing and lying about the assault just to advance her career.
“There were maybe thirty to forty Cops at the Cancer Charity Event not one saw ANY altercation in a world of everything is on CAMERA there’s no footage of any incident hmmmmmmmmmmm.”
“PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE beware of the CLOUT CHASE my sister will be just fine THIS TOO SHALL PASS God is Great,” he added. “@[email protected] love you and i will be by your side 4 life.”
Meanwhile, TMZ reports that since Remy is still on parole after her 2014 prison release, she could be in danger of violating it, which could mean more time behind bars. In fact, the New York State’s Division of Parole has launched an investigation to see if a violation was committed.
After Joe shared his post, a lot of folks said they admired how he stuck up for Remy and didn’t forget about her during her legal troubles.
“That’s real and that’s loyalty!!! Respect ✊🏾,” someone wrote..
“LOYALTY IS EVERYTHING 🙏🙏🙏,” a second person commented.
