Love and Hip Hop's Brittney Taylor filed a civil lawsuit against rapper Remy Ma earlier this month. Brittney claims that Remy punched her in the eye, while the two were backstage at a charity event at New York's Irving Plaza.

But now Brittney has been arrested and charged with attacking a witness to the alleged Remy Ma punch.

According to reports, Brittney is looking for a check from Remy. And she's not going to allow any "witness" to mess up her legal payday.

Word is that Brittney confronted a woman who planned to testify in favor of Remy in the lawsuit. And it turned violent.

Here's how Page Six is reporting it:

Brittney Taylor, 30, was busted early Friday morning for the alleged assault inside Dina Khalil’s West 42nd Street apartment near 11th Avenue, police and sources said Saturday.

Taylor began arguing with Khalil around 6:45 a.m., when Taylor allegedly scratched her, cops said. Taylor then allegedly followed Khalil to the lobby and threw a cell phone at her face.

Taylor was arrested at the scene and charged with assault. She appeared before a judge Friday, where she was released on her own recognizance, a Manhattan court clerk said.

The reality TV star and up-and-coming rapper claimed months ago she was attacked by castmate Ma, whose real name is Reminisce Smith. Smith allegedly slugged Taylor in the right eye at the “Pretty Lou Benefit Concert” at Irving Plaza on April 16, police said at the time.
