UPDATE: (4/19/19, 10:00 PM ET) — HollywoodLife reached out to the NYPDl, which provided the following statement: “There is a complaint report on file for Assault which occurred on Tuesday, April 16, 2019 at 2130hrs inside of 17 Irving Plaza within the confines of the 13th Precinct. A 29-year-old female victim reported to police that she was punched in the face by a 38-year-old female sustaining bruising to her right eye. The victim was treated at Mt.

Remy Ma, 38, is being investigated by police for allegedly punching Love & Hip Hop: New York‘s Brittney Taylor at a concert in New York City on April 16, according to a report by TMZ, which cites law enforcement sources. The site reports that according to their law enforcement sources, Brittney told police that she was attacked by Remy after she entered the backstage area at Irving Plaza for a Pretty Lou Benefit Concert and that the two “exchanged words” in the greenroom. According to TMZ, the following situation ensued backstage at the concert: The altercation was in relation to an attack on Remy’s stepdaughter, Dejanae, that occurred a few weeks prior, TMZ claims its law enforcement sources say. Brittney claimed Remy accused her of knowing information about the attack on Dejanae, and that was when TMZ reports Remy allegedly threw a punch at Brittney.
The law enforcement sources went on to say that Brittney went to a hospital for treatment and then filed a police report soon after. The same sources claim an assault investigation is open, which is a result of an altercation at the event, where a female was punched. No charges have been filed and no arrests have been made, per TMZ‘s law enforcement sources. Nonetheless, TMZ reports that sources close to Remy, who was reportedly scheduled to perform at the benefit concert, claim there is no validity to Brittney’s account.
Brittney took to Instagram, where she shared a video of her face, which her caption implies was caused by Remy. “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,” she wrote in the video’s caption. “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,” Britney continued, before she addressed the rapper directly. “My Question is @remyma why did you really do this?”, Brittney concluded. Remy has not yet spoken out about the accusations. HollywoodLife reached out to a representative for Remy Ma, as well as Brittney Taylor, and did not receive an immediate response.
