Remy Ma, 38, surrendered to cops on Apr. 30 and has been booked for misdemeanor assault for allegedly punching Love & Hip Hop: New York star Brittney Taylor, 24, law enforcement sources told TMZ. Brittney accused the rapper of punching her in the right eye while backstage at a Pretty Lou Benefit Concert at Irving Plaza in New York on Apr. 16 and was getting ready to file a civil lawsuit against her during the police’s investigation into the situation.
