Love & Hip Hop Star Begs Mona Scott-Young & Producers To Release Her From Contract: It’s Sucking The Life Out of Me

Moniece Slaughter wants desperately to part ways with Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood. The VH1 reality star recently took to social media, asking Mona Scott-Young and other key producers on the show to release her from her contract. In a lengthy message, she says that the show has sucked the life out of her, she’s miserable, depressed and is suffering from anxiety. She says,

As I have a moment to reflect. Peace and quiet. Just me, by myself. There are a few things I wanna get off my chest. I want to thank @monascottyoung @stefateaser & @msrocc68 for this opportunity and platform. It’s allowed me to be able to financially provide for myself and my son. Secondly, I have to thank everybody that encourages me and supports me and has grown with me over the past 5 seasons. Since Season 1 until now. There comes a time when we (adults), have to be honest with ourselves. A while ago. I arrived at a place where I realized continuing to come back (when I felt myself slipping emotionally/mentally) was doing me more harm than good. But after being told no to a clean release, and not being able to pursue other avenues in television; I simply returned to ensure my son was taken care of.

Moniece goes on to say that learning that she couldn’t get out of her contract, cause her to have a breakdown.

At the top of this season, when I was told no to a release, I had a complete mental breakdown. I chose to intensive outpatient therapy and medication. But today, I’m in a place where I absolutely can not take any more. For any reason. I’m miserable. I have completely run out of steam. I have no more to give to this franchise. It’s sucked the life out of me. My depression. My anxiety. My sleep deprivation. My weight loss. Are at an all time high. And with a slightly teary stare, I am begging you. Humbly. Desperately. Please. Release me. I don’t know how else to drive it home. But I feel like I’ve run out of options. Just release me. Let me go. And let’s be thankful for 5 amazing seasons. But I need off this ride. For my sanity. For my son. For myself. I neeeeeeeeddddd to be released. #withlove??

theJasmineBRAND broke the story this spring that Moniece’s close friend – Masika Kalysha – left the show for Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta. Sources tell us that it’s extremely hard to be released from your contract and go to another show/network.
