Benzino Fired From “LHHATL” Over Death Threats?
Stevie J and Benzino’s longtime bromance ended last season on “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” after a vicious fight at the reunion taping in NYC. Stevie J’s “wife” Joseline attacked Benzino’s girlfriend Althea after a morning beef on social media.
Shortly after the events, Benzino and “LHHATL” producers had a falling-out over Althea’s role on the hit show and the couple were reportedly fired from the cast. According to Stevie J, Zino was fired because he made death threats against he and Joseline’s life after the reunion show beating.
“He said flat out he was going to kill us,” Stevie told TMZ. However, Benzino contradicted Stevie’s claims, saying “Stevie J is a habitual liar and VH1 has never given me a reason for being fired.” Whatever the case, Zino thinks he got the boot because “they wanted to keep the crackhead wh*re.” Rude!
Althea filed a lawsuit against Joseline after Joseline attacked her at the reunion. It seems like Stevie is just doing some damage control.
