From lovers to friends to enemies.
It may be a while before Darryl “Lil Scrappy” Richardson is reunited with his daughter, Emani Richardson, who he claims is being kept away from him by his ex-fiancée, Erica Dixon.
According to our sister publication, Bossip, an Atlanta judge granted Dixon’s request for a temporary protective order against Richardson after she claimed that the “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star committed family violence. Dixon claims that things got so bad with the “No Problems” rapper that she now fears for her life.
Apparently, the judge felt that the single mother provided enough evidence to the courts to grant her the temporary order. A hearing concerning this matter has been scheduled for August 12. It will be then that a judge will decide whether or not the order should be made a permanent one.
Reportedly, Richardson was served on July 22 with court-ordered documents informing him that he’s prohibited from coming near Dixon, or he will be immediately thrown in jail.
As previously reported, Richardson and Dixon are enthralled in a custodial/child support battle over their daughter, and Richardson has accused Dixon of keeping the girl away from him to be spiteful.
Interestingly, over a year ago Dixon all but called Richardson’s ex-girlfriend, Brittany “Diamond” Carpentero, a liar when the former Crime Mob rapper accused him of abusing her during their relationship.
“He was mentally abusive, physically abusive,” Carpentero told The Breakfast Club. “We fought, like you ain’t beatin’ my a**. Yeah, he got some issues. Some demons, he needs some help.”
Shortly after Carpentero’s interview aired, Dixon offered her two cents on the allegations made by the 27-year-old.
“I feel like she’s saying that because she needs a little shine,” said Dixon. “You get into little arguments and spats with your dude, but him just being outright abusive. I’m sorry. I was there before you and after you. Did I miss something?”
We hate to see domestic disputes get this ugly, especially when children are involved. Hopefully, something can be worked out between these two for the sake of Emani.
