According to her lawyer, Dawn Florio, Remy has security cameras stationed in her house that prove she was home at 9:30 p.m. on April 16. That’s the exact time her co-star, Love & Hip Hop: New York’s Brittney Taylor, alleges Remy punched her backstage at Irving Plaza.
Florio adds that prosecutors were “dumbfounded” in court this week when Remy’s team claimed they had the evidence. Florio is convinced Taylor’s case will be dropped and Remy will be cleared of charges once the home security footage is reviewed.
Florio maintains that there’s no surveillance footage from Irving Plaza that upholds Taylor’s claim about the assault taking place in the green room area. The lawyer also says she’s acquired a photo of Taylor from the night of the purported assault, time-stamped hours afterward where no injuries can be seen on her face. He asserts that before Remy arrived at the venue, she stopped by Target to purchase items for her baby and didn’t get to Irving Plaza til 10:45 p.m., 15 minutes before her scheduled performance.
In April, Taylor took to social media with claims that she and Remy got into an altercation backstage at Irving Plaza. According to Taylor, things quickly escalated, leading to Remy reportedly punching Taylor in the face. The rapper turned herself into the police on Wednesday and was booked for misdemeanor assault. Remy has been on parole since she was released from prison in 2014.
Remy's publicist released a statement saying Taylor wasn't invited to the Irving Plaza event, that there's "no credible evidence to corroborate Taylor's story," and that Remy's legal team is "vigorously protecting her legal interests and her brand and will aggressively pursue related legal actions as necessary. In addition to the fact that Taylor bypassed numerous police officers that were on the scene to post allegations on her Instagram page and hired a civil lawyer, who is known for high profile lawsuits, both of Remy’s lawyers assert there's credible evidence to support that this is a baseless case and nothing more than a money grab attempt."
The statement continues: "Remy is currently still on parole. She has approximately 85 days of supervision left of her 5-year post-release sentence. Nevertheless, for the past 4 years and 9 months she has been a model citizen by maintaining employment, completing all mandatory programs, staying drug free, adhering to all rules and has never even had a curfew violation. ... Remy’s only request is that her family be respected and she personally thanks all the fans for their unwavering love and support."
