Remy Ma's Court Date Postponed, Lawyer Calls Out Sick
Remy (born Remy Smith) was scheduled to appear for a pre-trial hearing today, after being accused of shooting long-time associate Makeda Barnes- Joseph twice in the abdomen. Remy maintains her innocence in the crime.
Barnes-Joseph was shot last July outside a New York club after she and Remy both attended a mutual friend's party. The incident was allegedly sparked when Rem discovered $2,000 missing from her purse and accused Barnes-Joseph of stealing the money.
In addition to Remy's criminal case, the shooting victim has Rem on the hook for $80 mil. in a civil lawsuit naming the rapper, Universal Music Group and others who play a major role in Rem's career.
Barnes-Joseph alleges the label is responsible for encouraging the rapper's violent behavior.
Barnes-Joseph originally filed the suit seeking $20 million dollars on Dec. 26, but has since upped the amount.
Fisher called the suit a publicity stunt and said Barnes-Joseph is looking for the deepest pockets she can find.
