Joe Budden appeared in court on Thursday hoping to get closer to the of a case that resulted in him being charged with felony assault and robbery in 2014.
The whole incident happened allegedly because the Budden saw images of his ex on Instagram with other men. She charged in publications that he removed her from a restaurant in Manhattan and took her phone. She then maintains he assaulted in his New Jersey home her after forcibly taking her to his New Jersey home.
Budden has denied the charges and seeks to have the whole case dismissed, according to his lawyer.
Nami Amiri, Budden’s lawyer, said the New Jersey rep simply wants to move on.
“Joe, at this point, is anxious to get this resolved,” Amiri told Bossip. “And by resolved, I mean dismissed.”
Despite their wishes, the Judge ordered the case to a grand jury in December. On top of it, the order of protection between the rapper and his ex was extended.
