From the looks of things, Benzino is still feeling the sting of being fired from VH1’s hit show, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. As you know, last season the rapper/reality star was asked not to return. To date, Benzino nor VH1 (which is customary) has not shared why he was fired from the show, but some speculate that it was either 1. because of his fallout with cast members Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez or 2. the alleged lawsuit that he was said to have threatened the network with.
In either case on Monday, he shared that he did not want to leave the show, writing on Instagram:
Just remember, I never wanted to leave the show, and the fans didn’t want me to leave either, hate it or love it, I was a major part of the shows success.
See his full message below.
And in other Love & Hip Hop Atlanta news, after missing the premiere episode, Joseline Hernandez has returned. This week, she came back to our TV screens after a brief hiatus.
No word on why she was MIA, but we ‘hear’ that she was suspended from the network after last season’s reunion brawl. In either case, the Puerto Rican Princess threw a few jabs on social media, directed at her new cast member Jessica Dime:
