Remy Ma, Papoose Nuptials Called Off After Jail Officials Find Illegal Item On Visiting Rapper
Instead of saying “I do,” Remy Ma and Papoose appeared to have uttered another two-word phrase instead: “Uh oh.”
According to the New York Daily News, the two rapper’s Rikers Island wedding plans were cancelled yesterday (May 12) after prison officials discovered what appeared to be a handcuff key in Papoose’s possession.
Law enforcement officials escorted the Brooklyn lyricist out of the jail. Now Papoose won’t be able to visit his Bronx bride-to-be for another six months, the newspaper is reporting.
“A wedding was scheduled today and a visitor to that wedding service was found to be in possession of a jail contraband so the wedding was cancelled,” an official told the Daily News. “The key that was found today easily opened handcuffs that we and other law enforcement officials use.”
Hot 97’s Miss Info, however, is reporting DJ Kay Slay informed her Papoose entered the prison willingly for his nuptials and gave his personal items to a guard upon entering the building. The guard apparently looked over the rapper’s property and found his keychain to be in violation of the jail’s terms and identified it as a skeleton key. He was then jailed afterward.
Papoose’s mother told XXLmag.com today outside of the courtroom that she was present during the time and did not understand why officials were detaining her song. She said he displayed the same personal items he always does when he visits Remy Ma. “Why would he do anything different and disrespect his own mother like that,” she said. According to the Brooklyn rapper’s mother, her son and Remy Ma weren’t even able to see each other yesterday. The ceremony will still place Remy Ma’s attorney told the press today outside the court house.
Papoose stunned the hip-hop community recently when we announced his plans to marry the imprisoned Remy Ma. The two were rumored to be an item, but the rappers kept hush regarding their relationship. So it was a surprise when Papoose not only revealed he and Remy Ma were a couple but that they would also soon be husband and wife.
Remy Ma is currently being held behind bars after she was found guilty on multiple counts of assault and weapons possession. The Grammy-nominated rapper got into a scuffle and shot a former friend last year after leaving a party of a mutual person. Remy Ma is scheduled to be sentenced May 13. –Jayson Rodriguez
