Princess-Love-Ray-J-LHH-Hollywood-Reunion-Cover

Ray J has reportedly sent the producers of “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood” into a tizzy because he suddenly decided to leave the show.

According to TMZ, Ray J says the show’s conflict has messed up his relationship with Princess Love.

They’ve been having problems ever since her arrest in February and we’re told Ray J thinks they can’t solve their problems while he’s part of the show.

Our sources say Ray J offered to shoot scenes that were uplifting and free of strife, but producers weren’t interested, so on Monday he bailed.

We’re told producers will throw a Hail Mary Wednesday, meeting with Ray J and his manager, David Weintraub, in an attempt to change Ray J’s mind, but as things stand now … he’s done.

 

Joseline Hernandez Reveals Date of Stevie J’s Rehab Return (Watch)

Stevie-J-And-Joseline-Break-Up

Stevie J of VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” is currently in court-ordered rehab after testing positive for cocaine several times; and his wife Joseline Hernandez gave fans an indication of when he’ll get out.

She shared a video on Jan. 21, revealing that she and “Steebie” will be hosting a special party in Memphis, Tenn. on Feb. 13. She added the caption, “Memphis lets go!!”

Watch below:

Stevie J made headlines at the end of last year after he tested positive for cocaine a whopping ten times. He was ordered to 30 days in rehab at an inpatient treatment center.

He’s also in danger of serving time in jail after allegedly failing to pay more than $1 million in child support. The funds were supposed to go to two of his kids, a 17-year-old and 15-year-old boy and girl respectively.

According to Enstars, he is close to reaching a plea deal in the case.

 

Joseline Hernandez Suspended for Four Episodes Next Season of ‘LHHATL’

joseline-hernandez-reunion-1Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Joseline Hernandez‘s violent behavior is finally catching up with her.  She had been suspended from the show for the first four episode’s for season four.

Hernandez attacked her co-stars Althea Heart, Tammy Rivera and Mimi Faust during the reunion special — causing an epic brawl among husband Stevie J and others as well.

Both fans and critics called for her to be fired from the show, but months later VH1 is finally doing something about it.

Nevertheless, after the brawl Benzino and his fiancee (Althea Heart) were both fired from the show for allegedly threatening to sue and bad mouthing the show’s producer Mona Scott-Young and VH1.

According to a source who told Rolling Out, “not only will she sit out filming the first four episodes, but she also won’t be paid for them regardless of what her contract may have otherwise stated.”

Hernandez might be upset about the decision and losing a huge portion of her check, but Scott-Young can’t endorse violence on her shows — especially after firing Yung Berg for allegedly beating up his girlfriend Masika Tucker.

 

VH1 Fired Benzino for Making Death Threats After L&HHA Reunion Brawl

benzino-fight-lhhatl-season-3-reunion-0825-2-1

Benzino REPORTEDLY has himself to blame for being axed from “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.”

According to TMZ, the TV personality, born Raymond Scott, was let go by producers after making death threats following his involvement in the REUNION show brawl.

“He said flat-out he was going to kill us,” FORMER castmate Stevie J told the website, alleging that the 50-year-old terrorized him, his significant other, Joseline Hernandez, along with the show’s producers and staff.

It was announced late last month that the rapper, former co-owner of The Source, was fired from the VH1 series, but this is the first time a REASON for the termination has been revealed. Benzino, however, says the network has yet to give him a REASON for being axed.

“Stevie J is a habitual liar and VH1 has never given me a reason for being fired,” he told TMZ.

Benzino believes producers had to fire someone following the reunion ruckus, which resulted in CRIMINAL charges being filed against Joseline. Benzino says they chose to give him the boot and “keep the crackhead whore.”

 

Did Tiny’s Daughter Zonnique Get Permanent Eye Color, Too?

zonnique-pullins-tiny-harris

Now, all of a sudden, Tameka “Tiny” Harris’s daughter Zonnique has eyes the same color as her mama’s, and folks are wondering whether they are COLORED CONTACTS, or if she underwent the same surgical procedure to have the color permanently changed.

Zonnique, the 18-year-old daughter of Tiny and former boyfriend Zonnie “Zeboe” Pullins, debuted a new photo with lighter eyes on Instagram over the weekend. The eye color appears to be the exact same as her mom’s.


As previously reported, Tiny flew to Africa in October for the procedure (because it’s illegal in the U.S.). “They are ice gray. That’s the color I purchased,” Harris, 39, told ABC News’ Deborah Roberts in her first interview confirming the change.

Her mom Tiny posted this pic of Zonnique, from the same photo shoot…
