Even though we have to wait until Monday to see how it unfolded, the most talked about reunion fight in VH1 history now has a lawsuit attached. As first reported by TMZ when they taped the Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta reunion a few weeks ago it suddenly turned into Joseline v. The World, as she initially started the fight with Althea, then ended up in separate battles with Mimi, Tammy and Ms. Deb Ms. Deb obviously defending her daughter-in-law.) Eventually, 911 was called and VH1 stopped filming for the day and rumors have been circulating that the whole cast has demanded that Mona fires Joseline.
The lawsuit was filed in Dekalb County on Tuesday and it alleges that Joseline and Stevie J “Instigated numerous public conflicts” against Benzino and began making threats of violence against Althea, including on social media. The night before the reunion Stevie J. posted a nude picture of Althea, in what looked like to be Althea in the mist of preforming oral sex. Althea jumped on twitter that same night and claimed that the pic was of her and Benzino. I’m still trying to figure out if that was the case, how did Stevie J. get it in the first place?
Althea also claims that Joseline was high on stage (well…duh) leading up to the fight on stage. Althea says that they were tons of witness who saw Joseline smoking crack/cocaine out of a pipe backstage at the reunion before filming.
Althea is suing Joseline for assault and battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The amount that she is suing for has not been disclosed. Althea IS NOT suing VH1 or Monami Entertainment, even though Benzino has publicly said her feels as if the fight was a setup, since he doesn’t understand how security could not tame Joseline.
Crackheads are strong… I’m just saying. *cues Momma Dee’s I Deserve
