Fans will have to wait a few months before “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” returns to VH1, but rumors about the season 3 drama have already begun.
According to MediaTakeOut, some the cast members resorted to violence during the opening of Benzino and Stevie J’s new bar Sleazy & Zino Bistro & Bar.
MTO reports that it wasn’t just one bout. There were “multiple fights” that allegedly left at least one cast member bloody and prompted another drawing a gun to protect herself.
The fight was the reported result of a love triangle. No, it wasn’t Stevie J, Mimi Faust and Joseline Hernandez. The threesome was comprised of Benzino, his new woman (fiancée?) Althea and Zino’s ex Karlie Redd.
Things had seemingly cooled between Karlie and Benzino during season 2 of the show, but if reports are correct, she wasn’t quite over the love affair yet.
After letting her emotions get the best of her, Karlie allegedly confronted Althea, who then knocked Karlie out. That’s when Erica Dixon jumped in to help her friend and bottles started flying, MTO reports.
However, Benzino advised his fans not to believe the gossip. “What brawl? Don’t believe the hype, OUR EVENT WAS AMAZING!!!” he wrote via Instagram.
While that pretty much negated the rumors, Benzino posted a photo that added fuel to the fire. It featured Karlie looking none too pleased with the caption: “U MAD B!tC#?”
Of course, Benzino might have just been rubbing his engagement in Karlie’s face.
“All my life I’ve been waiting for God to bless me with the strength to finally step up and be a MAN!! NO MORE GAMES,” he wrote. “I KNOW WHAT LOVE IS NOW!!”
Though the “love triangle” may have started the ball rolling, the madness apparently spread throughout the cast. Momma Dee reportedly pulled out a pistol and Shay Johnson got involved in a physical altercation, too, according to MTO.
