Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta Season 2 has yet to debut its first episode, but tons of dramafied tidbits about the cast are being spilled on the regular. The latest insanity to hit the circuit is a rumored fight that is said to have occurred between Erica Dixon and Shay Johnson. While the rumors weren’t really shocking, as any LHHATL head knows that the two are certainly not fans of one another, the outcome of the fight seemed a bit odd.
According to gossip blogger Funkey Dineva, both ladies made an appearance at a salon where their co-star Karlie Redd was hosting a launch party for her new hair weave line. The event was called “Redd Champagne and Weave” (no, that isn’t a joke) and after an exchange of words, the two women got into a physical altercation.
Media Takeout also reported on the fight, claiming that Erica pulled out a blade and slashed Shay in her face. Reps from both camps agree that this never happened. Erica also took to her Instagram account, expressing that she doesn’t need weapons to fight with Shay because her hands are sufficient.
Sources tell Dineva that Erica didn’t pull out a blade on Shay, but they did claim that Shay walked away from the fight bloody and disheveled. They’re also saying that the former Flavor of Love star “lost” the fight and stayed in the bathroom for a long time as the salon’s stylist attempted to salvage what was left of her ruined hairstyle.
Shay and her reps have come forward claiming that no one ruined her face and that the majority of claims circulating about the altercation are actually false. A rep told Hip Hop Gossip Site that the two reality stars did exchange words, but security stepped in before things got out of hand.
On the other hand, Erica’s reps seem to be saying that there was physical altercation and Erica simply did what she had to do.
“Ms. Dixon did defend herself as she was provoked but there were no such things as a blade or other materials that you may have heard [were] involved,” Erica’s reps told RumorFix.
Shay has since released photos of her face in an effort to prove that no harm was done to her.
Meanwhile, on the other side of town, Scrappy was busy rounding up Twitter followers for his pals. *Side-eye*
Chances are Love & Hip Hop:Atlanta cameramen were lurking around when the confrontation occurred, so we’ll more than likely see it all go down in the coming episodes.
