Rapper Remy Ma's wedding to long-term partner Papoose has been called off after the groom tried to break his bride-to-be out of jail.
The hip-hop star - real name Remy Smith - faces 25 years in jail after she was found guilty of shooting a woman outside a New York nightclub last year (07).
But rapper Papoose - real name Shamele MACkie - was determined to proceed with their pre-planned nuptials and the pair decided to exchange vows in Rikers Island prison in New York on Monday (12May08).
But according to the New York Daily News, the ceremony was cancelled because MACkie tried to smuggle in a handcuff key to break his bride free from jail - and subsequently has been banned from visiting his fiancee until November (08).
A prison official tells the publication, "A wedding was scheduled today and a visitor to that wedding service was found to be in possession of jail contraband so the wedding was cancelled.
"The key that was found today easily opened handcuffs that we and other law enforcement officials use.
"The visitor was sanctioned by not being able to visit Rikers Island again for six months. He was asked to leave.
