Brittney Taylor Arrested for Domestic Violence
As per TMZ, Afeez, who shares a 2-year-old and an 8-month-old child with Taylor, visited New York last week to meet his children. He was not on good terms with the reality star, hence maintaining distance from the family.
Afeez went to Taylor’s home with his mother and was leaving the place when the hip-hop artist said something that he ignored. She was infuriated at being ignored and got into a heated argument with Afeez, which soon turned physical.
The victim has told the police that he was punched in his face in the presence of the kids. He then left the spot, but Taylor followed him and whacked him with a bat which resulted in laceration and heavy facial bleeding.
Afeez had to be taken to a hospital, where he got stitches above his eye. Meanwhile, Taylor was charged with two counts of assault: for endangering the welfare of a child and for criminal possession of a weapon.
The Reality Star has been Released from Prison
Taylor seems to have been released after posting bail, as she was seen at the premiere of Teyana Taylor’s film A Thousand And One on March 27. After the event, she went to a club with her friends. The LHH star has not yet commented on the matter.
On the other hand, Afeez shared the photo of his injury on Instagram last week and talked about domestic violence without naming Taylor. “Domestic violence against men is real and should be taken seriously. I’ve been bullied way too long. This is one instance of what happened when I flew to NYC to see my kids….never again,” he wrote.
Taylor shot to fame with her appearance on Love & Hip Hop: New York in 2016. The series features a group of artists from the hip-hop scene as they juggle their life and careers in the highly competitive industry.
Taylor was Earlier Arrested in 2019
This is not the first time that Taylor has been arrested for assault. Earlier in 2019, she filed a complaint against her co-star Remy Ma for punching her in the eye. Remy was then charged with third-degree assault; however, the charge was later dropped. A few months later, Taylor allegedly attacked a witness in the case and was arrested herself.
“The arrest of Brittney Taylor does not in any way change the facts of the assault of Brittney Taylor for which Remy Ma is being prosecuted by the Manhattan district attorney,” her attorney Sanford Rubenstein said at the time. She eventually signed a dismissal deal with the woman, and the case was closed.
