Remy Ma’s 23-year-old son, Jayson Scott, also known as Jace Smith, has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of 47-year-old Darius Guillebeaux in Queens, New York, in June 2021. Scott was arrested alongside another man on June 19.

Reports indicate that Scott and his co-accused face additional charges, including two counts of weapons possession and reckless endangerment. Investigators are exploring whether the murder was a contract killing.

Details of the case remain limited, but an arraignment is expected soon in Queens. Scott gained public attention through his appearances on the reality TV show Love & Hip Hop: New York, where he appeared alongside his mother and her husband, Papoose. The couple also shares a five-year-old daughter, Reminisce Mackenzie.

Meanwhile, rumors are circulating that Remy Ma and Papoose are experiencing marital difficulties. These rumors are fueled by allegations that Remy Ma had an affair with battle rapper Eazy The Block Captain, who appeared to confirm the affair in an audio clip posted online in December.

Remy Ma has faced significant backlash over the alleged affair. In November, she shared a cryptic post suggesting she has kept secrets about those who have wronged her.

“You shitted on me & I still never exposed you. I know secrets about people I don’t fuck with anymore and their secrets will never leave my mouth. My character will never be questioned. It’s cool though.”
