Love & Hip Hop: New York star Brittney Taylor has been arrested for allegedly assaulting her children’s father with a baseball bat.
According to a report from TMZ on Tuesday (March 28), the altercation between Brittney and her boyfriend Afeez happened earlier this month. After a warrant was issued for her arrest, she turned herself in last week.
The pair share a 2-year-old and a 8-month-old, but had been estranged and were living in separate cities. The report states that Afeez had flown into New York to see the kids at the time of the incident. After picking them up and exiting Brittney’s apartment with his mother, the reality star reportedly flew into a rage after he ignored something she said.
In his criminal complaint, Afeez told cops Brittney then punched him in the face in front of the kids, then followed him out and hit him with a bat when he tried to leave. It reportedly left him with a laceration and “significant facial bleeding” that required stitches.
Brittney has been charged with two counts of assault, one count of endangering the welfare of a child, and one count of criminal possession of a weapon.
Back in 2019, Brittney Taylor accused her L&HH co-star Remy Ma of assaulting her at a concert at Irving Plaza. She alleged that the Bronx rapper had punched her in the right eye amid their ongoing issues.
Prosecutors filed charges against Remy and hit her with four misdemeanors for the matter – two counts of assault in the third degree, one count of aggravated harassment in the second degree and one count of harassment in the second degree.
However, all charges were dropped months later when it was determined that prosecutors couldn’t prove Brittney’s allegations.
“(An) unaffiliated witness remembers seeing the defendant the entire time the defendant was in the green room at Irving Plaza, where the assault purportedly occurred,” they said in a statement, according to ABC 7. “This eyewitness never saw the defendant and the complainant interact in the time she observed the defendant.”
