ILLUSTRATION BY ANDREA SHEPHERD FOR TMZ.COM

Rapper Remy Ma has dismissed allegations of assaulting a witness in relation to the shooting of a woman in July 2007, insisting the latest accusations are simply intended to turn the public against her. The hip-hop star was charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon after the shooting of 23-year-old Makeda Barnes-Joseph outside a New York City nightclub. One count of attempted murder was reduced to assault after evidence suggested the shooting was unintentional.
