Drugs Were Found In Gangsta Boo’s Room On Marriage Boot Camp: Hip-Hop Edition

Gangsta Boo, born Lola Mitchell, was never publicly known to have any struggles with drug addiction throughout her 20-year career. Speculations rose after a white, powdery substance was found in her and her partner Emmett’s room while they starred on WeTV’s Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition.


The show’s in-house therapist Dr. Ish confronted the couple about it and unfortunately had to kick them off the show. Gangsta Boo adamantly denied that the drugs were hers and even called Dr. Ish out on social media for his approach.

You would think that someone like @drish would have a better choice of delivery, when he is trying to be all ‘professional’. Not sure if he just a TV ‘Dr’ when the cameras are on or in real life when they are off. This is #mentalhealthawareness month so if you care so much about ppl health, with SO much ‘concern and sincerity,’ why did YOU noticeably allow ppl to be on prescription meds while drinking alcohol in front of you?? Everything was on camera. Don’t pretend like you didn’t know.  I wouldn’t recommend anyone to you. Even if they were desperate for therapy. You actually owe the ppl who suffer from these things in the dark A DEEP APOLOGY. It was a bit insensitive and wrong DOC.
