“It Kinda Felt Like A Competition”: Diamond Says Relationship With Scrappy Suffered Because He Was Jealous Of Her Success
Ever been with a man who you felt you couldn’t share good news with because he always tried to downplay your accomplishments? It’s not easy, and someone who knows that from experience is rapper Diamond. We all know about her relationship with Scrappy of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” fame, and we know that when they split after a few years together, things got ugly (and she moved on quickly to Soulja Boy). But the “Sisterhood of Hip-Hop” star shared on the show that a big reason their relationship didn’t work out was because she didn’t feel like the rapper was supportive. After cast member Siya spoke on her girlfriend not supporting the work she does by starting unnecessary drama, Diamond shared her story. Though Scrappy has had some hits (“Money In The Bank” and “No Problem” for instance), Diamond says that when she was focused on her career and started doing big things, he acted more jealous than encouraging.
“Sounds so familiar.
I was in a relationship with my ex Lil Scrappy. He was a bit jealous. So, it kinda felt like a competition.
You’re supposed to be with someone who is going to uplift and add to the equation. You’re not supposed to be dimming your light. That’s what I was doing with Scrap. All because I can’t come home and share accomplishments because you’re going to rain on my parade…then everybody else is your cot damn co-star.”
And on a side note, Scrappy was all in the video when Diamond was featured on Ludacris’ “My Bad Chick” remix.
As we told you recently, Scrappy said that when Diamond left him, he took it quite hard.
“Boy I’m going to tell you, I’m not going to lie to you. Man law! Your boy cried. You feel me, I cried.
You know let me tell you something when I cried like that I knew then I never been in love before. I thought I was in love with my baby mama. I never been in love before.”
You can check out her statements on Scrap’s jealousy around the 3:30 mark:
Erica Dixon and Lil Scrappy get on my nerves. Though I inadvertently gave up on “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” this season, they’ve always been my favorite couple. One, because their story, even though full of drama, seems to be the most plausible. And two because deep in my heart, I want them to be together–forever. I want them to stop playing, like yesterday.
And I say that knowing that Scrappy and his mother are not about the right. Scrappy is determined to keep slanging his penis all over town and Mama Dee is hellbent on sabotaging their relationship by any means necessary. Oh, and he’s currently dating Bambi.
But at the end of the day I really want them to be together. And apparently, I’m not the only one. Based on a VH1 poll, 85 percent of voters around the nation want these two to make it work. Duh! Everyone can see there’s still love there.
And after catching clips of the estranged couple flirting heavily with one another on camera, it didn’t come as much of a surprise that they were getting down and dirty behind the scenes.
Erica told one of the producers: Two weeks ago. We weren’t intimate. I just let him taste it. We didn’t have intercourse but it was oral, down there.
Erica even pulled out a hotel receipt on stage to corroborate her story because she knew Scrappy would lie to the cameras about their recent trysts. The hotel receipt was from a few weeks ago but before that, Dixon said Scrappy visited her at her house. They had a few drinks and badda bing, badda boom, Erica received an oral transaction.
But Scrappy denied it and the producers and Erica insisted he take a lie detector test.
Scrappy failed the lie detector test, of course and offered a pathetic, “I don’t remember” as an explanation.
And while such shenanigans might upset most girlfriends, Bambi seemed unbothered.
“Some days I don’t want to be with him. We just gotta ratchet situation. We’re dating. We have great times together, but I ain’t trying to marry this ni&&a.”
Whew! This is such a hot mess.
And while Scrappy lying on the mother of his child and double dipping should make me want better for Erica, I just can’t shake the idea that they were meant to be. I want Scrappy to grow up, I want them to figure out how to make it work and be one big happy family.
Is there too much mess to sift through though?

[Watch] Scrappy Admits That He Cried When Diamond Left Him For Soulja Boy: ‘I Knew Then I Never Been In Love Before’
Diamond’s relationship with Scrappy ended years ago, but she still appears to be somewhat relevant to the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star and his mother. Yesterday, Momma Dee’s reps told us that she would be taking legal action against the “Sisterhood of Hip Hop” star if she continues spreading lies about her. Earlier this week, Scrappy also spoke on his past relationship with Diamond during an appearance on Dish Nation and The Rickey Smiley Show.
First, he responded to questions regarding Diamond’s allegations that Momma Dee used to steal her clothes.
“[It's] impossible, you feel me, because my mama can’t even fit her clothes. Way taller. Way thicker, you feel me?”
He also addressed reports that Diamond was still living with him when she began her relationship with Soulja Boy.
“She was definitely living with me.”
And went on to admit that he cried when she left.
“Boy I’m going to tell you, I’m not going to lie to you. Man law! Your boy cried. You feel me, I cried.”
Scrappy also said that his reaction when Diamond left made him realize that he had never been in love before.
“You know let me tell you something when I cried like that I knew then I never been in love before. I thought I was in love with my baby mama. I never been in love before.”
Aw, poor Scrap.

“This Is Some Racist A** S**t”: Lil Scrappy Accuses Another Business Of Racism After Going HAM At Waterpark [Watch]
Momma Dee, who spoke to the staff member immediately after to express her disappointment with the way Emani was being treated, told TMZ that Scrappy told the woman, “You need to pick my daughter. This is some racist a** s**t.”
According to the site, the person who shot the video of Scrappy confronting the host/staff member agrees that resort was being a little bias (aka, only picking white children), however, the resort says that’s just not true. A rep told TMZ that they don’t discriminate…but that children must “follow specific protocol.” Whatever that means…
Emani didn’t end up participating in the activity.
This isn’t the first time Scrappy has publicly accused a business of being discriminatory in their practices. Just last year he had issues with a salon in Atlanta after he paid to have a birthday party for Emani there and the business cancelled it after they were 20 minutes late. Scrappy says that when he confronted staff about everything, they allegedly said that they had no interest in serving “you people.” Things got so ugly that the cops were called. But that business claimed that they cancelled Emani’s party because Scrappy and co. were TWO hours late, not 20, and other guests were waiting. The owner said they did return the rapper’s full deposit to him.
Either racist stuff always seems to happen to Lil Scrappy…or somebody’s lying. Either way, I feel bad for Emani. Check out the video from Scrappy’s confrontation with the host below.
Sometimes how you get with a person is how you lose them. After being the “other person” in the relationship, these sidepieces turned main chicks found out what it felt like to be cheated on.
If “Love & Hip-Hop” is nothing else, the reality show is beyond messy. In season four we were introduced to former rapper Peter Gunz and his artist Amina Buddafly. The chemistry between the two was obvious and it was clear Gunz was dipping out on his longtime girlfriend and mother of his two sons, Tara Wallace. But we soon found out afterwards that Gunz and his artist were actually married. And when Tara found out about their union, her on-and-off relationship with the “Uptown Baby” rapper, which actually began when with her being the other woman, was over. Amina is currently pregnant with her manager’s baby.

Even though the fights may be behind Love and Hip Hop Atlanta’s high ratings, producers may have had enough. TMZ reports that the show’s producers have decided to increase the security during shoots to not only protect the cast against each other, but from civilians as well.
There will allegedly be one security guard for each cast mate and apparently they hit the ground running keeping cast members Lil’ Scrappy and new cast member, Erica Pinkett from killing each other earlier this week. Pinkett allegedly threw wine in the rapper’s face during an argument.
One cast member commented on security’s performance saying:
“That s*** gets ratchet and now the bodyguards shutting that s*** down.”
Well as viewers familiar with the show probably already know, security will have plenty to keep them busy. In February, a free for all erupted when the cast attended an opening of a restaurant. The fight was said to be started by a girlfriend of fan favorite Joseline Hernandez and resulted in Karlie Redd being knocked out and Momma Dee being hit in the face with a bottle.
In a previous season of the show Lil’ Scrappy put them paws on Stevie J. after word spread that he disrespected the mother of his child, Erica Dixon.
There was an altercation between singer, K. Michelle and rapper, Rasheeda at one point in which a candle gets thrown at Rasheeda before security shuts the catfight down.
It makes us wonder: Will Love & Hop Atlanta be the same without drama and trash talk escalating into cliffhanger altercations? Or will the show actually focus on finding some solutions and more compromise between the cast members? Either way, it appears with security in full force, cast members may have to find other ways of working out their problems that don’t involve bruised knuckles, bloodshed and battered weave.
Do you think the show will be better without all of the fighting?
At the start of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” Lil’ Scrappy led viewers to believe that his ex-girlfriend, Diamond, abandoned him during a time that he needed her the most. However, according to Diamond, the reality star had been physically abusive to her during her relationship, which is what pushed her to leave.
“He was mentally abusive, physically abusive,” the former Crime Mob rapper recently told The Breakfast Club. “We fought, like you ain’t beatin’ my a**. Yeah, he got some issues. Some demons, he needs some help.”
“He has bad spending problems,” she continued. “I think you, you know, people go through phases. I think we’re better off as friends. I don’t want to try to continue to be in a relationship and we end up not liking each other; hating each other. I just want people to know we’re not together.”
Unsurprisingly, Diamond admits that she bumped heads with the two women who probably play the biggest roles in Scrappy’s life: his mother and his daughter’s mother, Erica. While there are rumors that Erica and Diamond got into a physical altercation at one point, Diamond says they never actually hit one another.
“Nah, we got into it before but we never fought.”
As for Momma Dee, the “Sisterhood of Hip Hop” star blames her for ruining her credit.
“I got his mother an apartment—that she trashed and messed up my credit at one point in time, terrorized. I co-signed for her a condo.”
Considering all that she has been through with Scrappy, Erica and Momma Dee, her addition to the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” cast would’ve made for extremely interesting TV. However, Diamond says she could tell from the beginning that appearing on the show wouldn’t be a good look.
“They was using our names for ratings. I had a meeting. I wanted to see what it was about, you know as a businesswoman. It wasn’t really going with the whole plan of my music career. I don’t think it was a good look for me. I wanted to focus on what I had going on in my life currently, they wanted to focus on what happened in the past.”
Contrary to popular belief, Diamond also revealed that she and Soulja Boy are no longer together.
“I’m single. We been broke up. Y’all need to catch up. Kimora Lee Simmons and Russell hang out together all the time. We do business together.”

You know how it goes with Erica and Lil Scrappy. One minute the “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” couple is on and the next they’re not. And since their split last season both of them have been in publicized relationships. But now…the two are simultaneously single. So of course folks are speculating that they might be getting back together. And recent pictures are adding fuel to that rumored fire.
Yesterday, Erica posted this picture of Scrappy and their daughter Emani asleep in bed with this caption.
Why they sleep though? #waittilltheyseethis @emanirichardson is really gonna be mad. #morning #familyandfriends #teamnosleep
Immediately, folks started rumors. A fake Erica Dixon posted this picture with the following caption on a fake Facebook page.
Erica was quick to get on Twitter and let folks know that she didn’t write that. But she did post the picture. After this one she posted pictures of she and Emani on vacation in Florida, so perhaps Scrappy joined them. If that is indeed the case, that would have been nice. Erica and Scrappy are often a hot mess together but you can tell they’re both invested in raising their child the right way and I respect that.
On another note, I know I may be in the minority here but I really like Scrappy and Erica together. It always seemed to me like a majority of their problems stemmed from Mama Dee’s meddling behind… Oh and the fact that he was probably cheating. Yeah, he’s been dead wrong. Sigh. Who knows. We’ll have to see how this all plays out.
Do you think there’s a chance that Erica and Scrappy would get back together? Do you like them together?
Emani Richardson, daughter of “Love & Hip Hop” Atlanta stars Darryl “Lil’ Scrappy” Richardson and Erica Dixon, turned nine today. But instead of basking in the glow of her fabulous birthday party, which was scheduled to take place yesterday evening, she’s forced to remember how her big celebration came to a screeching halt.
According to TMZ, Scrappy put a down payment for a small 2.5-hour celebration at a girls’ salon, which is located just outside of Atlanta. However, when he showed up to the venue with Erica and Emani 20 minutes late, he says the owners refused to let them in.
Of course shutting down a children’s party for such a simple matter seems a bit harsh, but Scrappy says their tardiness had nothing to do with it. According to the “Love & Hip Hop” star, his family wasn’t granted admission into the venue because the owners and employees are “racist.” He went on to say that when he’d argued that he already made a down payment for the party, he was told by the people running the venue—who are white—that the establishment had no interest in serving “you people.”
Cops were later called to the scene because Scrappy refused to leave without a refund. Once they arrived, they were able to recover half of Scrappy’s down payment and the venue reportedly agreed to mail him the remaining balance.
Poor Emani. Hopefully Scrappy and Erica are able to throw another party for her.
Erica Dixon Speaks On Possibly Reuniting With Scrappy And “Going Across The Street,” Aka, Dating White Men
I know I can’t be the only one who really likes Erica Dixon out of all the out-of-order and confuzzled (how I say confused) cast of characters on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. She’s quite the beauty and seems most concerned about her role as a mother, and doesn’t take crap from anybody (including Lil Scrappy’s mother, Momma Dee). Since the show has been on break, Dixon has been on the low low. We knew that she was seeing a handsome male model named Oshea Russell, but according to the LHHATL star, they’re done. So is there a possibility that she could reconnect with Scrappy soon now that he’s done with Bambi (but not necessarily Shay)? In an interview with Big Tigger at V-103 in Atlanta, she didn’t sound too confident about all that, but in the end, she says never say never…
Big Tigger: “Rumor has it, you don’ left the old dude and you and Scrappy are back together and he left Bambi. What’s going on?”
Erica Dixon: “Erica Dixon is single [laughs]. Notice I said I am currently single. Yes. And I’m living, I’m working, focused on my daughter and focused on my [line of dresses]. That’s what Erica is doing right now. If something comes along, then okay.”
Tigger: “In your heart of hearts, do you ever see a path that might lead back down Lil Scrappy’s street.”
Dixon: “Well I’ve always been told you always look forward and move forward. You don’t go backwards. That’s what I’ve always been told.”
Tigger: “Do you believe in what you’ve been told?”
Dixon: “Yes, I definitely do. But at the same time people do change and evolve for the better, you know, so you never know what the future holds but currently I am single.”
Tigger: “You are single. Fellas pay attention.”
Dixon: “I like white boys too [laughs]”
Tigger: “You goin’ across the street!?”
Dixon: “Yes, I’m going across the street.”
Tigger: “How dare you cross the street! [laughs]“
I’ve never heard of the phrase, “cross the street.” The more you know…By the way, you should check out Dixon’s site for dresses, called Klass6. They’re a bit too bodycon-ish for my taste, but they’re not bad.
But anywho, do you think Erica and Scrappy should reunite?
