Shooting Victim Sues Remy Ma, Universal Records

The woman who says Remy Ma shot her in the abdomen in front of a Manhattan pizzeria last July, filed suit against the rapper and Universal Records on Friday (December 21). According to Reuters, Makeda Barnes-Joseph’s suit, filed today in Manhattan federal court, claims that Remy “wilfully, wantonly and maliciously” shot and injured her, causing “severe physical harm and mental anguish.” The suit also names Universal Records and Sure Shot Recordings, two of the rapper’s record labels, claiming that they encouraged her to engage in violence as part of her image. Barnes-Joseph is seeking $10 million in damages. Just yesterday, the judge in Remy’s criminal trial denied her request to travel outside of the country for a European tour. Her attorney argued that his client desperately needed the $35-40,000 that the trip would have earned her.
