Brittney Taylor, 30, was busted early Friday morning for the alleged assault inside Dina Khalil’s West 42nd Street apartment near 11th Avenue, police and sources said Saturday.
Taylor began arguing with Khalil around 6:45 a.m., when Taylor allegedly scratched her, cops said. Taylor then allegedly followed Khalil to the lobby and threw a cell phone at her face.
Taylor was arrested at the scene and charged with assault. She appeared before a judge Friday, where she was released on her own recognizance, a Manhattan court clerk said.
The reality TV star and up-and-coming rapper claimed months ago she was attacked by castmate Ma, whose real name is Reminisce Smith. Smith allegedly slugged Taylor in the right eye at the “Pretty Lou Benefit Concert” at Irving Plaza on April 16, police said at the time.
Smith turned herself in on May 1 and was charged with third-degree assault.
But Smith’s civil lawyer, Eric Sanders, said the arrest raises concerns for the assault case against the rapper.
“Obviously this arrest creates a major credibility issue for the prosecution and [Taylor’s lawyer in the case] Mr. Rubenstein to contend with,” Sanders said in a statement to the Post. “Either way, we intend to continue pressing forward to ensuring Remy is totally vindicated.”
