Lyrica was still in her hospital bed as she updated us on all the scary things that started happening to her after the birth. The list is long and, honestly, might act as birth control for the squeamish.

Safaree's finally getting cozy with someone post-Nicki Minaj ... the rapper was spotted out and holding hands with Erica Mena.

Sources close to the 'Love & Hip Hop' stars tell TMZ ... Safaree and Erica recently started dating and ... were seen walking hand-in-hand IN MATCHING FUR COATS at the Jazz-Nets game Wednesday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

We're told there were immediate fireworks ... and while they're not officially boyfriend/girlfriend yet, they're well on their way to that status. Safaree had been hinting for a while now about finding love ... posting clues on his Instagram story he's riding with a new chick.

Erica also took to Twitter before the Nets game ... professing she's finally finding true love.

Our sources say Safaree and Erica's new connection will be featured on 'L&HH' at some point.

Clearly, these 2 kids seem to be riding high on Cloud 9 ... a far cry from their previous relationships. As you know ... Safaree's on-again, off-again relationship with Nicki Minaj ended terribly, to say the least. He most recently accused her of trying to kill him.

As for Erica's previous relationship ... that was no paradise either. But, she's off to greener pastures ... enjoy the ride!!!

EXCLUSIVE

'Love & Hip Hop' star Lyrica Anderson finally put a monster rumor to rest over whose baby she's carrying, and now ... she's ready to spill the rest of the tea(l) with mommy shots.

Here are Lyrica's first maternity photos after a rough season of 'L&HH: Hollywood' -- where she faced accusations of cheating on her husband, A1, with Nicki Minaj's ex, Safaree Samuels. A1 and his immediate fam demanded a very-preggo Lyrica take a paternity test, which was revealed in last week's reunion episode. Turns out ... A1 IS the father. OHHHH!

Safaree doubled down during the reunion episode, denying he'd ever slept with Lyrica ... despite seemingly admitting to Ray J earlier in the season that they had, in fact, smashed. Those words never actually came out of Safaree's mouth, but he let Ray put 'em there for him without protest.

'L&HH' Star Amara La Negra 100% Behind Spice Going White Face!!!

10/25/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Love & Hip Hop: Miami" star Amara La Negra is totally behind Spice's decision to go white face for her album, because she believes Spice had a noble purpose and executed it brilliantly.

Amara tells TMZ, the haters who have lashed out at Spice are all wet for attacking Spice over a photo that was designed to mock those who believe light-skinned African American women are more beautiful than their dark-skinned counterparts.

As we reported, the imagery goes hand-in-hand with Spice's track, "Black Hypocrisy" on her mixtape that includes the lyrics, “(‘Cause) I was told I would reach further/If the color of my skin was lighter/And I was made to feel inferior/Cause society said brown girls prettier.”

And THAT right there is why Amara's in Spice's corner ... 'cause Amara herself has clashed with others trying to define her beauty. You'll remember "Love & Hip Hop: Miami" cast member Young Hollywood was on the receiving end of death threats after suggesting Amara get "a new look."

In short ... Amara says she gets it and supports Spice, because sometimes you gotta shake people to call attention to your cause.

Mission accomplished.

Breaking News

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Spice has a lot of people talking the day she's pushing out new music -- but they're not talking about her singing -- it's her white face.

Spice posted a pretty shocking image of herself with super light skin Monday along with a message about her new mixtape. 

A rep for Spice tells us there's a track on the mixtape called "Black Hypocrisy" -- thus the look. 

Spice also deleted all her other posts ... which puts the spotlight on the new pic.

Fans were clearly not digging it, saying, "Wow I can't believe this, Spice! What the F**K have you done?" Another wrote, "Girl you look crazy af."

'L&HH' Star Tommie Lee Busted Again for Stalking Daughter After Child Cruelty Arrest

10/18/2018 6:55 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Tommie Lee got her dumb ass hauled into jail Wednesday night for stalking of her own daughter ... just 24 hours after Tommie allegedly slammed the child into a school locker the day before.

The "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star outdid herself, even by her own low standards, by getting arrested TWICE within 24 hours. The first bust came Tuesday night when she was booked for battery, aggravated assault and child cruelty. Cops say Tommie unloaded on one of her daughters at the child's middle school in Cobb County, GA.

Tommie posted a $27k bond and was released Wednesday morning at 4:40 AM -- but she was also slapped with a court order to stay away from the daughter.

Apparently, she just couldn't stick with that program. She violated the order by making contact with her daughter within 3 hours of getting out of jail.

Tommie was back in handcuffs Wednesday night, and she's currently being held without bail.

'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.
