Rapper cries 'Oh my god' as she's led out
Remy Ma has been found guilty of assault by a jury in Manhattan.
The violent incident occurred in July 2007 when she fired a shot at friend Maekeda Barnes-Joseph in New York City’s Meatpacking District. Ma, whose real name is Remy Smith, accused the friend of stealing $3,000. She said the shooting was an accident.
Ma cried out ‘Oh my god’ after the verdict was given, and her brother yelled ‘This is bullshit!’ He was escorted from the courtroom.
As previously reported, Ma collaborator Busta Rhymes last week (March 18) was given three years probation for assault. Rhymes attended a party for Versace at Barney’s later that evening.
