Benzino wants the world to know that his lady Althea has genuine talent, unlike some of his “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” co-stars who have to rely on eyebrow-raising behavior to garner attention.
Without naming names, Benzino seemingly took shots at Karlie Redd and Mimi Faust who he believes are less musically gifted than Althea.
“She really has talent,” he told Big Tigger about his girl. “There’s no need to be sucking on fingers on TV or swinging from rods or nothing like that. She’s just talented. When you got God-given talent, you ain’t got to do all that other foolishness.”
“LHHATL” fans likely remember Karlie sucking on boyfriend Yung Joc’s finger a few episodes ago when the two were arguing about Karlie’s friendship with singer Jeremih. As for the “swinging from rods” comment, it’s no secret that Mimi’s porn tape featured a scene in which she grabbed onto a shower curtain rod while having sex with boyfriend Nikko.
Though he may have been throwing shade at Karlie, Benzino assured that he’s moved on from his ex and Althea’s shiny engagement ring helped validate that claim.
Although she almost got into a physical altercation with Karlie in a recent episode, Althea said she’s not threatened by Benzino’s ex.
“I’m not worried about Karlie,” said Althea who admitted that things can be awkward when the three meet. “It is uncomfortable because I’m with him and she is his ex, but I’m not worried about her.”
According to Benzino, there’s no reason why his fiancée should be worried.
“I have moved on and I should hope that she moves on,” he said. “That’s what adults do.”
