“Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star, Benzino, 50, is talking about the reunion brawl, the creator of the show and regrets over his friendship with co-star, Stevie J. The former rapper has been using social media to get some things off his chest.
On Tuesday, Benzino posted an Instagram message regarding his failed friendship with Stevie J. The message captioned:
“Sometime I wonder why I fall too fast, crash too hard, forgive too easily and care too much.”
The former BFF’s and business partners ended their bromance after Stevie J’s wife, Joseline Hernandez charged and sucker punched, Benzino’s fiancee, Althea Heart during the taping of the reunion.
Benzino also has some thoughts on who’s responsible for the reunion melee. The reality star says, Mona Scott Young, creator of LHHATL is to blame for the reunion fight. He claims Mona set up the perfect conditions for a brawl to occur. Furthermore, he claims that Mona showed no concern for the people who were attacked in the brawl. On Instagram, he posted a picture of Mona and Joseline together that captioned:
“THIS WAS THE PIC THAT MONA SCOTT YOUNG WAS TAKEN RIGHT AFTER THE REUNION! THIS WAS IRRESPONSIBLE ON MONA’S BEHALF! STEVEIE POSTED IT THEN ONCE MONA CALLED AND TOLD HIM TO TAKE IT DOWN HE DID! AFTER JOSE RUINED THE REUNION, THE ENTIRE CAST SAT ALL AGREED 100 PERCEN THAT JOSELINE NEEDS TO BE STOPPED AND SHE STARTED EVERYTHING!! EVERYONE UP THERE DEFENDED ME AND ALTHEA AND SAID THEY DO NOT WANT TO SHOOT WITH JOSELINE, MONA NEVER CALLED ME, ALTHEA OR EVEN MIMI TO FIND OUT IF WE WERE OK! But she went TO MR CHOWS AND HAD DINNER WITH THE ANIMAL SMILING RIGHT AFTER THE REUNION! SMFH, SOMETHING AINT RIGHT AND THE TRUTH WILL COME OUT.. #lhhatl #thisaintover HOW CAN 40 SECURITY GUARDS ALLOW JOSE TO RUN WILD AND NOT CONTAIN HER!”
Benzino was not done, he went on to post a screengrab from MTO and condemned the people who praised Joseline’s violent behavior.
“This is sad on so many levels, there are YOUNG girls who look up to this PROSTITUTE/JUNKIE and the powers that be ARE COSIGNING HER, she TRIED to attack damn near the whole cast but got LUMPED UP, ANYBODY WHO DEFENDS THIS ANIMAL, SHOWS WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU REPRESENT, THIS DRUG ADDICT THREATENED TO BEAT UP ALTHEA IN 6 EPISODES PLUS POSTED IT ON HER IG THAT SHE WAS GOING TO TO WHAT SHE TRIED TO DO AT THE REUNION, ME AND ALTHEA NEVER GOT UP FROM THE COUCH WHEN THIS CRACK WHORE RAN OVE AND JUMPED ON ALTHEA,,IT WAS PREMEDITATED AND MONA AND VH1 SHOULD HAVE STEPPED IN LONG TIME AGO AND PREVENTED THIS BUT INSTEAD THEY LET HER RUN WILD, #thisaintover.”
