Benzino and fiancee Fired from LHHA
Benzino and fiancee Althea Eaton think “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” should air on Animal Planet … because they think producers are making them scapegoats.
Production sources tell us the couple was given the boot Wednesday AM … with no explanation.
Benzino says it’s obvious he and Althea are being blamed for the fight between them and castmates Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J … a brawl that proved irresistible for other cast members.
TMZ broke the story … Althea sued Joseline, claiming she started the fight while she was high on crack.
Although Althea got her ass whooped … producers sided with Joseline, even though other castmates felt Joseline should have gotten the boot.
VH1 wouldn’t comment, but it’s pretty obvious. Joseline’s better TV, and that trumps everything.
Birdman To Tyga “Either You With Us Or You Ain’t”
It was only a matter of time before the head of Cash Money would have to speak on the feud between two of the artists signed to his label. During an interview with Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex, YMCMB co-founder Bryan “Birdman” Williams was asked about the current public spat between Tyga and Drake.
“I haven’t got to the bottom of none of that,” said Birdman. “I don’t really know what’s happening with all that.”
After giving high praise to Drizzy and saying he has no problems with T-Raww, Birdman then goes on to speak on Tyga’s position in the culture as compared to Drake. He also makes it clear either someone is with the Cash Money team or they’re not.
“Tyga knows where he stands in this game compared to Drake. That ain’t no secret. Numbers don’t lie,” added Birdman. “He might be in his feelings, and I got all the love and respect for Tyga, but my intake is I’m family orientated. Either you’re in or you’re out. If you’re out, you’re an outcast to me. If you’re in, we’re family… You with us or you ain’t. You gotta choose your side.”
Katt Williams and Suge Knight Arrested For Stealing Camera From Lady
Katt Williams and Suge Knight got busted today for allegedly snatching a camera from a female photographer in Beverly Hills.
The alleged incident went down back on Sept. 5 outside a studio … according to the L.A. County D.A.
Katt was arrested this morning when he showed up in court for an assault case — and Suge was picked up in Las Vegas. They were booked for robbery.
Both men have pretty lengthy rap sheets … and as a result the D.A.’s Office says Suge could face 30 years to life in state prison — while Williams could be nailed for up to 7 years.
TMZ shot video of the alleged victim talking to cops right after the run-in.
