Days after New York radio host Funkmaster Flex was arrested for allegedly assaulting his wife, Monica Joseph-Taylor has now discussed the incident.

Remaining mum on the situation's details, Mrs. Joseph-Taylor asked for the public to respect their privacy.

The dolled-up wife of DJ Funkmaster Flex put on a smiling face a day after she had her husband locked up for allegedly shoving her to the ground. "We're doing okay," Monica Joseph-Taylor said Saturday outside the couple's upscale home in Westchester. Asked for details about the Friday-morning marital fracas, she grinned and teased a News reporter. "You'd have to buy me dinner," said Joseph-Taylor, dressed in a black leather jacket, dark jeans, knee-high tan boots and a leather print scarf. Flex and Joseph-Taylor wed in 2000 and have a 9-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son. Saturday, Joseph-Taylor requested privacy before driving off in her silver BMW coupe. "I would love everyone to respect the privacy of my family - for me and my children," said Joseph-Taylor. After she left, a bouquet of yellow roses and white lilies arrived at the couple's home.

Flex also reportedly addressed what went down last week.

At a gig in New Jersey Friday night, the New York native admitted getting into a tussle with his wife. "Yes, we had words," Flex said. "Yes, there was an argument. Yes, there was a phone broken. Yes, there were police called. "I love my fans, and I encourage all of them to work things out in their own marriages." (New York Daily News)

Details of Flex's arrest landed across the Internet last Friday.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... cops responded to a domestic violence call from a 40-year-old woman in home in Westchester early this morning. When cops arrived, Flex was nowhere to be found ... but the woman insisted he went ballistic on her and left. Cops managed to locate Flex a short time later -- and arrested him. (TMZ)

Flex eventually posted bail and is due back in court later this month.
