As we told you earlier this week, things got extremely ugly at the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” reunion show taping. In addition to fighting with Benzino’s fianceé, Althea, Joseline has been accused of biting a VH1 security guard.Cast members have banned together and are asking that Joseline be cut from the cast behind her behavior. But it appears that this is not going to happen, as Mona reportedly went to Mr. Chows for dinner with the self-proclaimed Puerto Rican Princess after the taping. Now, Benzino is calling her out.
His caption reads:
“THIS WAS THE PIC THAT WAS TAKEN RIGHT AFTER THE REUNION! THIS WAS IRRESPONSIBLE ON MONA’S BEHALF! STEVEIE POSTED IT THEN ONCE MONA CALLED AND TOLD HIM TO TAKE IT DOWN HE DID! AFTER JOSE RUINED THE REUNION, THE ENTIRE CAST SAT ALL AGREED 100 PERCENT THAT JOSELINE NEEDS TO BE STOPPED AND SHE STARTED EVERYTHING!!
EVERYONE UP THERE DEFENDED ME AND ALTHEA AND SAID THEY DO NOT WANT TO SHOOT WITH JOSELINE, MONA NEVER CALLED ME, ALTHEA OR EVEN MIMI TO FIND OUT IF WE WERE OK! But she went TO MR CHOWS AND HAD DINNER WITH THE ANIMAL SMILING RIGHT AFTER THE REUNION!
SMFH, SOMETHING AINT RIGHT AND THE TRUTH WILL COME OUT.. #lhhatl #thisaintover HOW CAN 40 SECURITY GUARDS ALLOW JOSE TO RUN WILD AND NOT CONTAIN HER! I HAD ABOUT 7 ON ME ALONE!! ALTHEA NEVER ONCE THREATEND ANYBODY, IT SEEMS LIKE THE WHOLE THING WAS A SET UP, BUT TRUST, THEY F—ED UP.”
He also dedicated an entire post to airing out his disgust for Joseline.
“This is sad on so many levels, there are YOUNG girls who look up to this PROSTITUTE/JUNKIE and the powers that be ARE COSIGNING HER. she TRIED to attack damn near the whole cast but got LUMPED UP, ANYBODY WHO DEFENDS THIS ANIMAL, SHOWS WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU REPRESENT.
THIS DRUG ADDICT THREATENED TO BEAT UP ALTHEA IN 6 EPISODES PLUS POSTED IT ON HER IG THAT SHE WAS GOING TO TO WHAT SHE TRIED TO DO AT THE REUNION, ME AND ALTHEA NEVER GOT UP FROM THE COUCH WHEN THIS CRACK WHORE RAN OVE AND JUMPED ON ALTHEA.
IT WAS PREMEDITATED AND MONA AND VH1 SHOULD HAVE STEPPED IN LONG TIME AGO AND PREVENTED THIS BUT INSTEAD THEY LET HER RUN WILD, #thisaintover.”
We’re wondering what this means for Benzino’s future on the show.
During this season of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” multiple cast members claimed to have dirt on Benzino’s new fiancée, Althea Heart. Now, it appears that several skeletons from her closet are taking center stage. Yesterday, we told you that Stevie J leaked a photo of a nude Althea posing in a bathtub apparently preparing to give a man, who she later identified as Benzino, fellatio. Shortly after releasing the photos, Stevie expressed that there would be more photos to come. He even mentioned Benzino on Instagram, saying:
“Just chill bro. I’m going to show you a p—y soon. #patience.”
Althea took a screenshot of an exchange between Benzino and Stevie, where he accused Joseline of sleeping with several other men, and posted it to Instagram in response to the photo leak.
However, if she’s planning on lashing out each time a new image leaks, then she her work cut out for her. Baller Alert recently received some photos from an “anonymous” source and things aren’t looking so good for Althea. In one photo, she can be seen posing completely nude while bent over a kitchen counter.
And then, there’s the sex tape. The sender was sure to specify that the man in the video is not her current fiancé, Benzino. It’s currently unclear if Stevie is behind the video leak, but we wouldn’t be surprised to learn that he’s the culprit. As you may recall, Benzino took to social media to defend Althea against fans who were blasting her for her alleged promiscuous past. It’ll be interesting to see if he continues to stand by her with these recent developments.

Both Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez have been accused of doing some pretty hard drugs in the past. While their drug use has never been confirmed, it appears to be a sore subject for the troubled couple. According to TMZ, Benzino made a joke about the duo using drugs at the recently taped “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” reunion and a massive fight broke out.
Witnesses are saying that Stevie jumped in Benzino’s face immediately after the joke was made, but security quickly intervened. While all of the attention was focused on the former friends, Joseline reportedly snuck up on Benzino’s fiancée, Althea Heart, and attacked her. That wasn’t the only brawl though. We also hear that there was an altercation involving Wacka Flocka’s fiancée, Tammy Rivera, and his mother, Debra Antney. Witnesses did not specify who Tammy and Deb were beefing with, but we’re guessing that it was probably Joseline, who seems to be fighting with just about everyone this season. Mimi Faust also reportedly got in on some of the violent action and sources claim that a security guard was also hit in the face during all of the fighting.
Police officers and paramedics were eventually called to the scene and at least three people were treated, witnesses say. Of course, the entire altercation was reportedly captured by VH1 cameras. However, we’ll likely only see a snippet of it when the reunion airs. Yesterday, we predicted that the reunion would be rather explosive after Stevie shared a nude photo of Althea on Twitter.
Watch a brief clip from the brawl below.

Stevie J took his feud with Benzino and his fiancee, Althea Heart, a step further last night when he shared a nude photo of Althea on Twitter. In the photo, a nude Althea can be seen in a bathtub leaning over the edge and looking up at a man who is standing in front of her.
“Lettuce anyone?” Stevie wrote in the tweet.

While Stevie tried to lead folks to believe that the man in the photo was him, Althea quickly responded stating that it’s actually Benzino who is in the photo.
“That’s me and Zino. What you want tickets??” the singer questioned.
“No, I already been to the zoo,” Stevie responded.
The real question should be how did the photo find it’s way to the Internet and end up in Stevie’s possession. We can only imagine what the reunion show will be like.

Well, some drama has definitely been played out on a public platform today, as Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez just had a public spat on Twitter. Earlier this week there was speculation that they had split, as their Love and Hip Hop Atlanta co-star, Benzino, put Hernandez on blast for doing his friend dirty. He said this yesterday in an Instagram post that he went on to delete:
“So the @baddestputa1 is still threatening #thi and still clowning me on #lhhatl but I noticed she was not at the awards with sleaze hmmmmm I wonder what happened, she S**TS ON EVERYBODY and tries to EXPOSE them WELL GUESS WHAT it’s her time to be EXPOSED stay tuned #lhhatl.
“I noticed @hitmanstevieJ_1 erased all pics of him and @thebaddestputa in Cali #betawards weekend hmmmm I wonder what LIL MISS INNOCENT DID? #staytuned #lhhatl.”
Benzino reportedly also jumped in the comment section of one of Hernandez’s posts to name off different men she cheated on Stevie J with, including Kevin Durant of all people. As for what Stevie J had to say about all this, on Twitter, he spoke as though he was a little heartbroken:
And just this morning the producer put his lady on blast:
Hernandez remained pretty quiet through all this, but this morning she decided to spaz out on Twitter. She posted messages talking about all the men she claimed to have had relations with, with while with Stevie, including Nelly and Drake (yeah right), and posted text messages between herself and the likes of Kevin Durant and Rick Ross. She also claimed to have slept with their driver, NBA star James Harden, given cunnilingus to women at the strip club (there were pictures) and had sex with some of Stevie’s friends. A lot of the messages (especially the images) were a little too explicit to share here, but she hasn’t taken them down yet from her Twitter page. And what is PG (I guess) that I can share is this:
Seeing as how Benzino and Stevie J keep saying “stay tuned,” I’m thinking this is all a big stunt for the reality show, and in a way, I also think Hernandez is just joking about this list of men she’s been with, and just talking crazy out of spite. But then again, it wouldn’t be the first time these people did the absolute most for VH1. But what do you think?
The year 1994 marked the beginning of Hot 97’s epic annual Summer Jam concert. Twenty years later, the concert featuring the biggest names in hip-hop and r&b is still going strong and continues to showcase the biggest names in music. Here’s a look back at some of the most memorable moments from Summer Jam.
The Notorious B.I.G.’s Only Performance At Summer Jam
The year was 1995 and Bigge Smalls was the king of New York rap. The year before he released his debut single Juicy and then followed that up with the platinum-selling album, Ready To Die. When he descended onto the Summer Jam stage in ‘95 as the headliner, the crowd went wild. Dressed like a dapper don in a three-piece suit, Big had the crowd on its feet for his entire set. That would be the first and last time the Brooklyn rapper would perform for the radio station’s mega concert. He was shot and killed nearly two years later.
Last week, we told you that “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” freshman Waka Flocka Flame secretly married his longtime girlfriend and co-star, Tammy Rivera. And for a little bit, it seemed like their decision to do away with a big fancy wedding and simply elope inspired another couple on the show.
A few days ago, Benzino shared a photo of himself in a white suit and his fiancée, Althea Heart, rocking a white wedding dress. They appeared to be in some sort of wedding chapel and all signs seemed to point to an elopement. In no time, secret wedding rumors began to swirl.
However, as it turns out, the two were just preparing to shoot a scene for Althea’s new music video “Ghetto Love.” Benzino cleared up the rumors yesterday by sharing a video collage of images from the video shoot, including the shot of Althea in the wedding dress. I guess it will be a little longer before Benzino and Althea say “I do.”
Are you feeling Zino and Thi Thi as a couple so far?
Judging by his portrayal on “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” Benzino is a fairly calm, cool and collected guy. But by the looks of a recent confrontation that he got into with a flight attendant, folks are probably better off staying on his good side. It’s unclear specifically what started the incident, but according to TMZ, the reality star was booted off of a flight in Chicago and went completely off as a result.
“You’re an idiot! You’re a f*cking idiot!” he yelled while making his way off of the flight. “F*cking racist bastard. You’re a racist bastard motherf*cker! You’re a racist mother f*cker!”
After dropping a few F-bombs, Benzino went on to exclaim that whatever caused the incident wasn’t his fault.
“I ain’t do nothing wrong, but sat in first f*cking class! Everybody on the plan said it wasn’t our fault! This is bullsh*t man! I want everybody’s names,” he threatened.
The video concludes with Benzino’s fiancée, Thea, grabbing their belongings and exiting the plane. Earlier today, the reality star discussed the incident on social media with fans.
“WE WERE QUESTIONED ABOUT OUR 3 BUSINESS CLASS SEATS THE WE PURCHASED. IT’S SAD THAT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS THAT THIS BEHAVIOR STILL EXISTS!”
Watch a clip from the incident below.
We’re back with another round of Hotness or Hot Mess with Kel Mitchell and this week the ladies are giving the thumbs up and plenty of thumbs down to Pharrell Williams, Future, Kevin McCall, Ralph Tresvant, Mark Wahlberg, and Benzino. Watch the hilarity in the video above.

Benzino Says He Knows Why His Nephew Shot Him On Way To Mom’s Funeral; Nephew Says He Did It In “Self Defense”
We told you on Sunday that Love and Hip Hop Atlanta star, Benzino, was shot during a funeral procession for his mother in Massachusetts. Sadly, as the story goes, the gunman was his own nephew, Gai Scott, 36. Benzino, born Raymond Scott, 48, was riding in a Dodge Charger near the funeral procession, and his nephew was in a Bentley. At some point, their vehicles came side-by-side and Scott opened fire. Benzino was reportedly hit three times, including in his back and in his bicep. The tension between Benzino and his nephew had been growing for some time and obviously boiled over on the way to the funeral.
Now, in an interview with WXIA in Atlanta, the LHHATL star claims that the attack on him by his nephew could have had a lot to do with the fact that Benzino confronted his sister, Maureen Scott, and her son in the past about taking advantage of his mother (whose funeral the family was attending on Saturday).
“In the past I felt like, yes, my sister and my nephew was taking advantage of my mother. Yes. I spoke up about that, I don’t know what it caused now, but I did speak about it years ago. There were some loans taken out of her house.”
He also told The Boston Globe what he saw when he was fired upon on Saturday:
“I looked over, there was a car, and all I saw was a gun shooting at me.”
Benzino is home from the hospital today, but his nephew was arraigned this morning in court. He has been charged with armed assault and intent to murder.
Surprisingly, according to The Boston Globe, the nephew’s lawyer, Jon Ciraulo, says that he shot Benzino in self-defense and he has filed a not-guilty plea for his client. Ciraulo is also a lawyer for Benzino’s sister and says that Benzino has lied on Gai and is just seeking attention at this time:
“When the dust settles, this case will be shown to be self-defense.
My client and his family, including Maureen [Scott] vehemently deny any accusations that Benzino is making. I would suggest that he [the uncle] has an agenda in utilizing and self-promoting at this time.”
But Benzino’s long-time attorney, Martin K. Leppo, says Gai’s behavior was anything but in self-defense:
“Six shots into Ray Scott’s car, and he chased him on the highway. That doesn’t sound like self-defense to me.”
The drama continues, and we’ll keep you posted on new developments.
