Judge Denies Remy Ma’s Request to Travel to Europe
A Manhattan Supreme Court judge on Thursday (December 20) denied a request by Remy Ma to travel to Europe for a five country tour. According to the Associated Press, Justice Rena Uviller shot down the request even after the rapper’s lawyer claimed she desperately needed the money the tour would bring in. Attorney Ivan Fisher told the court that his client has had trouble booking shows and a recording contract has been put on hold since her arrest for allegedly shooting Makeda Barnes-Joseph on July 14. The tour, which was to kick off in Paris on December 31, would have brought the rapper $35-40,000 according to Fisher. On December 5, Justice Uviller ruled that Remy must stand trial on additional charges of witness intimidation and gang assault after she allegedly asked two men to beat up a witness in the shooting case. The case has been adjourned until January 22 pending the results of DNA evidence taken from the clothing Remy was wearing on the night of the attack.
