The newest member of "Love and Hip Hop Hollywood" believes he's being shunned by cast members because they don't want to share the small screen with an openly gay rapper.

Milan Christopher has been filming for 3 weeks, but we're told the majority of rappers on the show are shunning him. Rappers on the show include Ray J, Soulja BoyOmarion and Mally Mall.

We're told a number of the rappers are upset with producers for hiring Milan ... not because he's gay but because he has no cred in the rap game. They believe producers hired Milan as a "sideshow" and a "circus" to goose ratings.

Milan, who calls himself a rapper/model, has worked with big rappers, but mostly as a writer. 

We're told at least 3 of the rappers on the show have made it clear to producers ... they don't want to film scenes with Milan. They won't show up to parties or other events where Milan is present.  

The rappers say they want nothing to do with Milan because he's a joke, but we're told Milan's made it clear to producers the other rappers have made their feelings about gay rappers obvious.
