The mayhem didn't end in Vegas -- days after Floyd Mayweather locked horns with T.I., Floyd's friend Benzino got kicked off an airplane in Chicago ... and in the process, the "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star unleashed the loudest torrent of f-bombs we've ever heard.
It's all on video -- Benzino (the same guy who was partying with Floyd at the strip club early Sunday morning) goes OFF ... calling a flight attendant "a racist motherf*****" and a "racist bastard."
Eyewitnesses tell TMZ, Benzino was asked to leave the plane during a stopover in Chicago on his flight from Vegas to ATL.
The details surrounding the blowup are hazy -- we're told the flight attendant questioned Benzino about his seat and next thing everyone knew ... Benzino was screaming.
We're told Benzino left the plane without further incident and police were not called to the scene. Calls to Benzino and the airline were not returned.

Beef Up Security ...
Decrease the Ratchet
5/4/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" producers are making cutbacks on bloodshed by increasing security during shoots, and Lil Scrappy can testify ... it's already saved him from brawling with a FEMALE co-star.
Sources close to production tell TMZ ... Scrappy and a new cast member named Erica Pinkett had to be separated by the new security force after she threw wine in his face during a dinner this week.
We're told producers have added security -- it's now one guard for every cast member --- on all shoots to keep things from getting "too ratchet."
We're also told it isn't just cast-on-cast violence they're guarding against ... it's also civilians trying to attack the show's stars.
As one cast member put it ... "That s*** gets ratchet and now the bodyguards shutting that s*** down."
Words to live by.

Lil Scrappy & Momma Dee:
Diamond's Lying Through Her $20K Teeth
4/22/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lil Scrappy and his mother, Momma Dee aren't taking kindly to accusations made by his ex-GF ... Scrappy tells TMZ Diamond is a "lying industry ho" who's as fake as her phony teeth and butt.
Diamond gave a radio interview Friday blasting Scrappy -- accusing him of physically abusing her -- and claiming Momma Dee stole her Louis Vuitton purses and ruined her credit by trashing a condo Diamond helped her buy.
Scrap tells TMZ Diamond lies like a rug ... saying he was never abusive and never once put his hands on her. Scrappy says she's trying to make herself relevant by throwing shade ... even though he gave her a start in music and bought "her $20K teeth and her fake ass."
He says Diamond's story of Gucci Mane slapping him down in a club is all BS. Scrappy insists they had a shoving match, nothing more.
And Momma Dee tells TMZ she never got anything of value from Diamond because "Diamond ain't never had s***."
Momma says Diamond's a "lying chamber maid" who's mad because she's not banging the prince anymore ... and says Diamond will never have any money unless she gets a "douche deal for her stank-ass p****."
BTW ... sources close to Diamond says her ass is real and she paid for her own damn teeth.

NATIONAL SHOWER ROD SHORTAGE

Demand is going through the roof for gymnastics-strength shower rods -- all thanks to "Love & Hip Hop" star Mimi Faust's sex tape acrobatics -- and Home Depot, Lowe's, Target, and Walmart are struggling to keep up.
We called employees at each of the major retailers (from Georgia to Cali) and we're getting the same story -- ever since the trailer for Mimi's sex tape came out, people have been racing to purchase their own super-strong shower rods to recreate the Mimi experience.
And supplies are running out -- a customer at one Home Depot in Georgia tells us, they were totally sold out of Mimi-strength shower rods.
This is a real thing -- a Twitter search for "Mimi shower rod" shows an endless list of people trying to get their hands on one. There's even a Twitter account dedicated to it (@MimiShowerRod). And don't even get us started on the Vine videos.
We reached out to officials at Home Depot, Lowe's, Walmart, and Target -- no word back so far.

Former "American Idol" finalist Nikko Smith wants the world to know ... he is NOT the Nikko Smith who stars in a sex tape with "Love & Hip Hop" star Mimi Faust -- but he's not exactly embarrassed by the mistaken identity.

'AI' Nikko says he's never dated, or even met Mimi Faust -- but adds he's cool with being compared to her boyfriend -- mostly because sex tape Nikko's hung like a moose.
He tells us, "There could be worse things linked to my name. At least the guy didn't murder someone."

Well, that didn't take long ... a huge fight broke out on the FIRST day "Love & Hip Hop L.A." started shooting -- and TMZ has video which shows Ray J was in the middle of the mess.
The brawl went down between Ray J's GF Princess Love and singer Teairra Mari inside a nightclub.
Check out the video ... Princess goes wild when she sees Teairra standing with Ray J.
Sources close to production tell us Princess demanded to know why Teairra was with her man ... and also claimed she saw photos of them together.
We're told Teairra simply said, "I don't care" ... and then it was on ... with Princess throwing the first punch.
Our sources say landing Ray J for the show was a huge score ... he had originally turned down offers to join the cast.
But hey, money talks -- and while we're told he's getting a ton of it ... Ray J's presence is already paying off for producers. Let's face it ... "Love & Hip Hop" loves a good fight.
