Mona Scott-Young Seems Pretty Sad About Firing Berg: “He Was A Great Addition To The Show”
“Based on the severity of the allegations against Yung Berg, VH1 is terminating its relationship with him in connection with Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, effective immediately,” the network announced. “Yung Berg was arrested on November 5th and charged with criminal obstruction of breathing in connection with an assault on fellow cast member Masika Tucker. The arrest took place in a New York hotel several hours after the taping of the reunion special for ‘Love & Hip Hop Hollywood’ had wrapped.”
Many applauded the network and the show’s production team for letting the troubled rapper go, but it appears that the show’s executive producer Mona Scott-Young was a bit sad about his departure.
“Listen, like I said, I know that emotions get the best of them. I was not there so I can’t speak to exactly what led to that. I know that he does feel badly that it did happen,” Mona told Vlad TV of the incident.
“Unfortunately, the network decided that was an absolute position that they had to take. Berg is such a talented artist and I wish him all the best. I hope that the time that he spent on the franchise, he’s managed to leverage it and that it serves him. He was great. I will miss him…I loved his personality. I loved his sense of humor. I think he was a great addition to the show.”
