'L&HH' Star Erica Mena Arrested with Boyfriend Near ATL

10/15/2018 11:03 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

'Love & Hip Hop' star Erica Mena was arrested this past weekend for weed, which becomes an afterthought when you hear her boyfriend was also arrested after allegedly kicking in a door to get to her during an argument. 

Erica and her BF, Clifford Dixon, were hauled off to jail Friday in Johns Creek, GA -- about 27 miles outside of Atlanta -- after someone called cops from their home to report an argument getting out of hand. Once cops arrived, they interviewed different people in the home and discovered Cliff and Erica had been fighting ... and that Cliff allegedly kicked through a bedroom door to a room in which Erica had locked herself.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, one of Erica and Cliff's roommates heard them fighting upstairs and apparently heard someone get slapped. Cops say they didn't see any visible marks on either person, but ended up busting Cliff when 2 different people reported he'd kicked through the door. He denied breaking it. 

Cliff was arrested for criminal trespass because Erica told cops the property was in her name. Meanwhile, Erica was arrested for possession of bud. 

Cops say Erica admitted smoking weed and that she had some inside her home. Cops say they found baggies of weed and possible THC wax in her bedroom and her kitchen. 

Erica was featured on season 7 of "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" ... but she'd previously been a main cast member on "Love & Hip Hop: New York." 

Cardi B's Sister Struts What Her Mama Gave Her ... at Milan Fashion Show

9/21/2018 4:11 PM PDT

Cardi B's gonna have to share the spotlight ... but she probably won't mind, 'cause it's with her sister.

Hennessy Carolina just hit the runway at a SUPER big fashion show -- the Philipp Plein Show at Milan Fashion Week. If you're out of the fashion loop ... Philipp Plein's a famous German designer who also has a stake in popular clothing brand Billionaire Couture.

Hennessy -- who has appeared on "Love & Hip Hop" with Cardi -- has done some shows here and there, but this is the first time she's gotten a chance to walk the runway in a massively important show.

Also at the show were Tekashi69 and Chris Brown. They were there to perform. But, no doubt the show belonged to Hennessy. Congrats!! 

'L&HH' Star Moniece Slaughter Files Police Report ... You Can't Throw Rocks, Princess!!!

9/10/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The raging feud between 'Love & Hip Hop' stars Moniece Slaughter and Princess Love has reached a new level ... cops have now gotten involved.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Moniece filed a police report after she and Princess damn near got into a brawl while filming scenes this week. Moniece alleges Princess threw a rock and a shoe at her. Sources close to Princess tell us she admits to chucking the rock, but insists it was Moniece who started the fight.

Our sources say Princess and Ray J were at a friend's party during filming when Moniece showed up and started trash talking Princess. S**t quickly hit the fan when Moniece threw cake at Princess, who then threw the rock.

Moniece took to Instagram and posted an injury pic on her Story ... showing her hand wrapped in a bandage. She captioned it, "When they can't match you w/ words. When they can't get to you so they throw stones instead but your ninja reflexes are on fleek."

Princess later took to social media and responded to Moniece saying, "I told this weirdo to meet me after the scene and she takes her sneakers off and runs through dirt in her socks right into securities arms."

Moniece and Princess have been beefing for years, and this isn't the first time things almost got physical. During filming for an episode that aired last month, Moniece had to be physically restrained from throwing a chair at Princess, who was very pregnant at the time.

Cardi B Throwing Shoes Is Just My Thing ... Video of Another Attack

9/9/2018 6:59 AM PDT

Nicki Minaj was not the first person to fall victim to a wicked shoe hurling attack from Cardi B ... the "Bodak Yellow" rapper has done the heel heave-ho before. 

Check out the clip, Cardi was on the Love & Hip Hop NY reunion show last year when she got into it with Asia. Cardi didn't like the explanation Asia gave when she was asked why she didn't like Cardi -- and without hesitation -- Cardi kicked off her shoe -- and a red one at that -- and chucked it straight at Asia.

As expected, a huge fight broke out. 

TMZ broke the story, Cardi went wild on Nicki Minaj Friday night at the NYFW Harper's Bazaar party. Cardi charged Nicki and her team -- cussing her out for shots Nicki's taken at Cardi and her family -- and when security intervened, Cardi took off her shoe and hurled it Nicki's way.

Cardi was booted from the party, and left without her shoes and a giant lump above her left eye.

Our sources say neither side will file a police report, and Nicki's unbothered by the whole situation. 

Safaree at VMAs Takes Shots at Nicki Karma's a Bitch

8/20/2018 5:49 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Safaree says he isn't worried about potentially running into his ex, Nicki Minaj, on the red carpet at the VMAs ... but he does have some advice for her.

We got the 'Love & Hip Hop' star Monday as he was heading to Radio City Music Hall in NYC to attend the MTV awards show when he took some clear shots at Nicki on the heels of their online beef ... not to mention all her other Twitter squabbles this week. 

As we reported ... Safaree claimed Nicki once tried to stab him with a knife in 2014 -- she called him a liar. Nicki also called out Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner over the weekend for working together to push his album sales past hers on the charts.

Safaree's got some thoughts on that too ... pick your battles, Nick. And grow with the times.

Our guy also asks if he beefed up security to avoid any nasty run-ins with Nicki on the red carpet -- like MTV brass is already doing to accommodate the feuding exes -- but he insists he's only rolling deep as a result of his robbery earlier this year.

As far as who should get top-tier seating between Nicki, Travis and Kylie ... Safaree's got a pretty hilarious answer ... and kind of an obvious one if you think about it.

Ray J on 'L&HH' What Had Happened With My Damn Moving Hat Was ...

8/7/2018 2:28 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ray J says the reason his beanie seemed to have a mind of its own this week on 'Love & Hip Hop' has more to do with Hollywood magic than any real hat trick. 

Ray broke down the 50 seconds of the episode everyone's talking about -- not for anything he or Safaree Samuels said, but because Ray's hat seemed to have a mind of its own!! In the brief scene, the knitted hat was in at least 6 different positions.

Fans of the show noticed, then made sure the Internet noticed. Viral video and meme hilarity ensued.

Ray gently put the blame on editing, as he revealed exactly how long they were actually shooting the scene. Hint: It's MUCH longer than what you saw on VH1 or the web. 

Considering the hat has stolen the spotlight, Ray tells us it could be getting a bigger role in upcoming episodes. As he puts it ... the hat's in negotiations.

It's so Hollywood, baby.

Faith Evans & Stevie J Already Talking Babies ... 'He Ain't Shooting Blanks!!!'

7/30/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

If Faith Evans knows one thing about Stevie J it's that he's good -- really, really good -- at making babies, and the newlyweds definitely have baby fever.

We got Faith and Stevie talking for the first time about their surprise Las Vegas wedding. They insist the hookup is NOT a publicity stunt, and explained why they decided to go all the way.

The R&B duo's heard some of the negative reaction to their marriage, but say they're ignoring all the haters. As we reported, some family members are pissed they didn't get a heads-up.

They got really excited though when we asked if they plan to have babies. You gotta see Faith declare her baby factory is open for biz. 

As she put it, we all know Stevie can make it happen ... with 6 kids of his own already.

Looks like they got in a damn good dress rehearsal while shooting the "A Minute" music video.  

50 Cent to Teairra Mari There's No Revenge Porn ... Everyone Posted Your Sex Pic!!

7/27/2018 10:01 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

50 Cent's going with the ole "everyone's doing it, Mom" explanation for why he posted a screengrab from 'Love and Hip Hop' star Teairra Mari's sex tape.

Fiddy filed his response to Teairra's revenge porn lawsuit, and in the docs he says the image he posted -- showing Teairra with ejaculate on her face -- was already all over the Internet when he reposted it. He says the fact others beat him to the punch protects him legally.

As for Teairra's argument he went beyond a basic repost by applying a black & white filter "to highlight the color contrast of the semen" ... 50 says even if that's true, he didn't change the nature of the photo.

50 also echoes a statement the judge made last month -- that the photo doesn't fall under revenge porn because it doesn't show genitals or a sexual act in progress. In flagrante delicto, in Latin.

He wants the case tossed. As we've reported, Teairra is also suing her ex-bf, Akbar Abdul-Ahad.

Safaree Samuels Armed Robbers Used GPS Device To Track Him Before Stickup

7/25/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Safaree Samuels was screwed from the get-go when he was robbed at gunpoint -- not only did he know one of the alleged assailants, but the dudes were tracking his every move before the hit.

Sources connected to the case tell TMZ ... cops found a GPS device which had been installed on Safaree's car before he was held up at gunpoint in April and robbed in New York. We're told it's unclear when the device was planted, but cops believe it's how the robbers pinpointed Safaree.

Interestingly enough, our sources say this tracking technique is one that's been used by authorities in NYC as of late ... and they even think the perps picked up the trick from them. We're told these GPS devices have been getting used more and more in high-profile stickups. 

As we reported ... two suspects have already been arrested in the case, one of whom Safaree knows very well. A third man has also been arrested in connection with the crime. 

Safaree told cops the robbers took upwards of $183k in cash and jewelry from him. We reached out to his attorney, James Leonard Jr., who declined to comment.

'L&HH ATL' Star Karlie Redd Flashing $150k Engagement Ring

7/22/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Karlie Redd's recent engagement is very much the real deal and it was sealed with a $150k ring ... TMZ has learned.

Karlie got engaged last week to her boyfriend, Mo, during her single release party. Sources tell us the ring Mo used to pop the question to the "Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta" star was embedded with 18 carats in just diamonds alone.

Lots of people were surprised by the engagement, including Karlie who fell off a couch during the proposal, since not much is known about her fiance. They've only been dating for a few months. 

Karlie's brand manager, KD McNair, tells us Mo is a real estate investor/developer in the ATL area who leads a low-key life, but that's all likely to change on the next season of "Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta."

Teairra Mari's Ex Her Revenge Porn Lawsuit is Done If She Leaked Sex Tape

7/12/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Teairra Mari's revenge porn lawsuit against her ex-boyfriend is going nowhere fast ... according to the ex, who maintains SHE leaked their sex tape, and therefore has NO case.

Akbar Abdul-Ahad tells us, although Teairra's going forward with the lawsuit, she hasn't been shy about trying to cozy up to him for some, uh ... well, you have to see his description. Point is, he now firmly believes what Teairra's 'L&HH' costar Milan Christopher claims about her posting the explicit footage herself. 

You'll recall ... Milan said Teairra was acting strange the day the sex tape went public, accusing Akbar of leaking it before it was even posted.

Akbar believes the new info destroys Teairra's lawsuit against him, and seems to think it's just a matter of time before her attorney Lisa Bloom jumps ship.

Milan Christopher on Teairra Mari There's NO Revenge Porn ... She Posted the Sex Tape Herself!!!

7/10/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

'Love & Hip Hop' star Milan Christopher insists his castmate Teairra Mari's revenge porn case is NO case at all ... because he claims SHE, not her ex-bf, leaked the sex video behind the lawsuit.

Quick refresher ... Milan's the guy who was with Teairra when she allegedly smashed her ex Akbar Abdul-Ahad's car with a metal pole. She claims he posted their sex vid to humiliate her after she dumped his ass.

However, Milan tells us Teairra's claims just don't add up when he thinks about the timeline the morning she told him about the allegedly leaked video. He also has a theory about why she'd lie. Hint: it involves professional help.

As we reported ... Teairra sued Akbar, along with 50 Cent ... and her lawyer, Lisa Bloom, claims to have a significant piece of evidence implicating Akbar, who denies being the source of the leak.

We've reached out to Lisa about Milan's claim ... so far, no word back.

'L&HH' Star Tommie Lee Arrested Again ... For Disorderly Conduct

7/9/2018 10:45 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

"Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" star Tommie Lee must really want a judge to throw her behind bars 'cause she was arrested again.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Tommie was busted early Monday morning in Atlanta outside of the Royal Peacock club after a cop told her to get out of the roadway where he was directing traffic ... and she allegedly ignored his instructions and got belligerent.

The tipping point ... cops say Tommie struck a nearby valet working for the venue in the head, and that's when officers made their move to detain her. We're told the valet didn't want to press charges, but cops arrested Tommie anyway and booked her for disorderly conduct while under the influence. 

It's unclear what cops think she was on, but booze could spell big trouble -- as in, jail time -- for Tommie. Just 2 months ago a judge ordered her to wear an alcohol monitoring device, and stay out of trouble.

She's definitely failed on at least one front.
