Accuser sues Remy Ma for $80million

Remy Ma’s accuser has now upgraded her lawsuit from $20million to $80million. She’s wildin for thinking that she will even get a fraction of that, anyway back to the news. Makeda Barnes-Joseph maintains that Remy Ma shot her twice in the abdomen on the night of July 14th for allegedly stealing $2,000 out of her purse.

Via AHH:

“Universal Music Group and Sure Shot Recordings are are also named in the suit for helping cultivate Remy’s image.

Joseph’s attorney Lauren P. Raysor issued a statement to the Voice, which said, “Only by pursuing those who we believe are legally responsible for this vicious and callous act of violence, can we hope to put an end to this senseless cycle of violence that is glorified by Hip-Hop marketing.”

The wounds Joseph sustained from the shooting have resulted in three surgeries and frequent hospital visits.

Remy Ma’s lawyer said that the suit shows Joseph’s true motivation. Remy’s attorney Ivan Fischer told reporter Chloé A. Hilliard, “It strikes me that this is part of a publicity stunt. The claims she makes are inaccurate. She reaches into every conceivable deep pocket…It’s grossly irresponsible.”

This suit is an upgrade from a similar suit levied last month in the sum of $20 million.

Remy Ma has proclaimed in innocence in the shooting case.”

$80 million??? She’s grasping but then again if that really took place and she is handicapped from that then she deserves loot.

Remy Ma hit with $20million lawsuit by accuser

Remy Ma accused her longtime friend Makeda Barnes-Joseph of stealing $2,000 out of her purse on the night of July 14 after her and entourage left a party in New York city’s Greenwich Village in which the altercation ended in gunfire with Remy Ma allegedly shooting Joseph twice in the abdomen.

Via SOHH:

According to the lawsuit, Barnes-Joseph had hosted a birthday party for a friend, which Rem also attended. Outside, after the party, the rapper approached Barnes-Joseph’s car with a gun. Remy opened the passenger door of Barnes-Joseph’s car, pointed a gun at her and demanded that Barnes-Joseph dump the contents of her purse.

When Barnes-Joseph refused, Remy allegedly shot her twice and then rummaged through the bag herself, while the shooting victim bled. When Rem didn’t find anything, she threw the contents aside and fled without calling for help.

Remy Ma has pleaded not guilty to criminal charges filed in connection with the shooting and her lawyer chocked the claims up to no more than a publicity stunt.

“[The lawsuit] appears to be a publicity stunt consistent with the way Ms. Barnes and her lawyer have, together with their publicist, been attempting to claim 15 minutes of fame on account of a terrible accident,” said Rem’s attorney, Ivan Fisher.

But Barnes-Joseph says her injuries are real.

She had to undergo surgery and blood transfusions while recovering and she remains disabled, fearful, anxious and depressed and still unable to return to work, according to the lawsuit. The suit also claims that because her injuries will require continuing medical treatment, Barnes-Joseph is entitled to at least $20 million in damages.

Meanwhile, Remy’s feeling the affects, too. The rapper is hurting for show bookings and a would-be recording contracted has been put on pause until her legal woes are resolved.

Remy is currently free on $250,000 bail.”

Definitely an example of when keeping it real goes terribly wrong….
