'Love & Hip Hop' Star

Paychecks Held Hostage

to Satisfy Debt

EXCLUSIVE

0412_lil_scrappy_01"Love & Hip Hop" star Lil Scrappy better have some "Money in the Bank" left over from his rap career ... because his TV checks are about to be garnished ... to help pay off a $100,000 debt. 

Long story short ... Scrappy was supposed to cough up $72,218.68 to a concert booking company called Heavy Rotation back in 2010 -- after he lost a legal battle in GA court. But according to HR, Scrappy never paid up.

The debt has since ballooned to $108,510.38 with interest and attorney's fees.

Tired of waiting for their loot ... HR requested to have chunks of Scrappy's "Love & Hip Hop" cash go straight to them first, until the debt's satisifed ... which the court signed off on.

Might be time to focus on that music again.

Too bad Erica Dixon didn't file to make him pay child support for their daughter, then he'd have to get a real job. That's what happens when "reality" becomes real.

Funny how someone can make a song called "money in the bank" but has none. Look for his next single "broke and uneducated in the welfare line"
