Remy Ma and son Jayson Scott (via Instagram)

Remy Ma has released a statement through her attorney about the arrest of her son, Jayson Scott, who has been charged with first-degree murder.

The rapper, whose real name is Reminisce Mackie, was strongly advised by her attorney, Dawn M. Florio, against speaking out publicly.

However, she wants to make it very clear that she stands by Jayson’s innocence and hopes the NYPD will conduct a full and thorough investigation to reveal the truth.

The full statement reads:

As many have heard Remy ma’s son, Jayson Scott was recently arrested and very serious unfounded allegations have been made.

Remy Ma wished to address this situation personally, but has been strongly advised by our office not to say anything publicly – as most people in this situation are, as the case, is still active.

To be clear, Jayson Scott is innocent and Remy Ma is committed to proving his innocence and fully supporting her child during this time. 

We stand by Jayson’s innocence and hope the NYPD will conduct a complete and thorough investigation to reveal the truth.

This has undoubtedly been a trying time for Remy Ma and her family.

While she sincerely appreciates the love and support she has received we kindly as that her privacy be respected as our legal team works to prove Jayson’s innocence. 

Thank you for your understand and continued support.
