Remy Ma: Brittney Taylor Assault Case Is A Waste Of Taxpayers' Money

(AllHipHop News) Reminisce "Remy Ma" Mackie is still dealing with an assault allegation by fellow Love & Hip Hop: New York cast member Brittney Taylor. Remy was in Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday as part of the ongoing case.
“Just more of a waste of the taxpayers’ money," expressed Remy Ma about the legal situation in a video posted by Page Six. The "All The Way Up" rapper has denied punching Taylor backstage at the “Pretty Lou Charity Concert” in Irving Plaza on April 16.
Mackie's lawyer suggested Taylor was lying. Attorney Dawn Florio asserted his client was at home during the time the criminal complaint claims the attack took place.
In June, Taylor was arrested in her own assault case. The alleged victim, Dina Khalil, is said to be a witness to the supposed Irving Plaza incident involving Remy Ma.
"There was a witness, but the witness got beat up by her and was pressing charges on her two months after that," stated Remy during an appearance on Hollywood Unlocked.
She added, "I don't know if it's still the same witness. I don't know if the witness is still agreeing to come, but I know two months after me going to jail the witness said she beat up the witness. The witness said, 'She bust me in the head with a phone.'"
Remy was arraigned on misdemeanor assault and harassment charges before being released on $1,500 bail. The Bronx native served six years in a New York state prison for assault, weapon possession, and attempted coercion. She has been off parole since August.
