Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s freshest face, Tommie Lee (real name Latisha Jefferson), says she’s not at all embarrassed of the plethora of mugshots that have went viral on social media.
In an interview with VH1, she addresses the mugshots, saying that she actually found the collage of mugshots entertaining,
I was dying laughing like, you just see question marks on that one mugshot. That b—- looked like she been drugged. Some of them sh–s is not even me. Half the time I’ve been on probation without going to prison. Half the time I was put on probation but I was still a badass. I still would violate probation. I wouldn’t do community service so guess that you get booked again and you got a whole new mugshot. People act like I’m just a real criminal out here. I’m not denying any of the s–t that I did but that’s not the life I live right now.
Tommie, shares how she handled her time in jail, saying,
The jail treated me so bad. I almost lost my first daughter and I was in jail for violating probation on drug charge her father had, and I didn’t tell on him. So I went to f—ing jail. I was only 17 and at 19 I was on probation. I had an evil probation officer. He was mad because I used to wear my stomach out because I was still sexy pregnant. He said “You don’t have no maternity clothes?” So I got smart with him one day. The next day he said, “Well, you don’t have a job.” And I said “I’m 8 months pregnant; I’m a liability, who the f— is going to hire me?” I had to get rides to Clinton County. So, he told me since I can’t find a job come up there at 8 o’clock every morning. Then I got up there one day at 8:05 he said, “Stand up and put your hands behind your back”. I was 8 months f—- pregnant.
She also reveals that she had her first daughter in jail.
Well, one day I was sitting in jail just leaking and I pressed the button like, please somebody, can I get checked? You know it’s hard to get medical attention in jail. Then they said if you press the button again you’re getting locked down. So when it was our time to get out, I called my mom and I was like “ma, some s—t is coming out and it’s just coming out every day.” Then the jail said if I press the button I’m going to get locked down. My mom was like, “Pee on yourself right now.” So, I pissed on myself. When I did, the whole floor was going crazy. Everyone was screaming “We ’bout to have a baby!” So then they took my to the hospital and it was no fluid around my baby. I had to have an emergency C-section. Yea, that saved my daughter. I wasn’t cuffed to the bed. The police were really nice. They let my family come in so it wasn’t like a horrible transition. Then I had to go back to the jail and they rushed me to court. The judge went off. He was so f—ing mad! I’ll never forget it.
And in addition to becoming a new reality TV star, Tommie is an entrepreneur,
Oh I do Tommie s—t, baby, I’m an entrepreneur. Right now I’m working with multiple sources of income. I put up money for shows. We just booked Future in the Bay. So I put in a lot of money with my promoter friend and that’s what we do. We split everything down the middle. Mo betta mo cheddar. We have houses and s–t around here that we own and we fix up to help college students out and stuff like that, kinda like a dorm. We have like five houses right now in the city of Atlanta. A lot of people that go to Clark [University] and Morehouse stay there. It’s fully furnished. You move in and you just pay your half of your room. It’s been going real good. Then I started taking more money and flipping it again with him on the promoting side of things and getting these artists. We booked Meek Mill for the fight in Vegas. That was real big. That was the most money we ever put into somebody, like $180,000. It was a good turnout. Right now social media is eating me up. It’s kinda like a weight off my shoulders so I can go on to positive s–t so I can go on and change me life. There’s no turning back now.
