Remy Ma Cleared in Assault Case with Brittney Taylor: ‘Its Over!’ [VIDEO]

*Remy Ma has been cleared of all assault charges stemming from an alleged incident with her “Love & Hip Hop: New York” co-star Brittney Taylor.

We previously reported… in April, Taylor claimed Remy assaulted her during the Pretty Lou Charity Concert at Irving Plaza. Remy eventually turned herself in to authorities the following month for misdemeanor assault charges.

On Monday (Dec. 2), Remy’s lawyers argued in a Manhattan courtroom that prosecutors couldn’t prove beyond a reasonable doubt the rapper had committed the crime, as there was no surveillance video capturing the alleged punch, and no one witnessed the altercation. Thus, a judge dismissed the case entirely, TMZ reports.

Remy was initially charged with 2 counts of assault, 1 count of aggravated harassment and another count of harassment in the 2nd degree.

The “Love and Hip Hop” star always maintained her innocence, saying she had evidence to prove she wasn’t even at the concert when the alleged assault went down.

Her attorney, Dawn Florio, tells TMZ, “Remy has always maintained her complete innocence as she never laid a hand on her celebrity-obsessed, clout chasing, credibility challenged accuser. Unfortunately, these manufactured allegations caused my client to suffer the indignities of having to wear an ankle monitor while having her freedom limited by travel restrictions and an 8:00 PM curfew.”

Adding “These restrictions have hurt my client’s ability to perform, causing hundreds of thousands of dollars of lost income. District Attorney Vance’s office should be commended for its exercise of sound judgment in agreeing to dismiss these unwarranted charges.”
