Miss Info: As we tweeted this morning, the “Welcome Home Remy” reports are a bit premature.
Remy Ma was expected to walk out of the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility today at 8am. She’s spent past 6 years in prison after being convicted of shooting a former friend in 2008. Her husband Papoose, managers, family members, friends, fans and camera crews stood outside for hours waiting for the 34-year old Reminisce Smith, with an assortment of fancy cars to take her home. But according to sources on the scene, around noon, prison officials came out and spoke to Papoose personally, and soon after, he and his crew left. In a strong show of restraint, Papoose was reportedly calm despite the news.
While it’s unclear why her release has hit a roadblock (parole officials would only confirm to Revolt that she’s still in custody), we were told that Remy Ma spent what was supposed to be the last week of her incarceration in solitary confinement. Her team did not believe it would delay her release…and she has club bookings and events waiting for her availability. While it’s unknown if officials were put off by the crowds outside, or if there was just a paperwork snafu…It’s clear from the photos (below) that Remy’s colleagues, friends, fans, and family are anxious to see her home.
Update: Remy was released at 3PM on Friday (Aug 1). Only her husband, Papoose, went to pick her up to avoid any other further complications. After the disheartening snafus yesterday, her whole team actually waited nearby just in case prison officials cleared up their issues with her alleged “phone violation”. When they finally got the good news today that she could leave, her husband Papoose went to pick her up without the crowds, cars, or camera crews to make sure officials had no excuse to complain…
