She lists her occupation as ‘Cast Member” on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta and makes $3,250 a month along with $733 in social security for a grand total of $4,004 in income a month.

After she pays her monthly bills, she is left with a total of $1,163. The docs reveal Dawn received $708 in food stamps in 2015, $2,244 for 2014 & $5,604 in 2013 and she only made $12k from employment in 2015 and $15k the year prior.

Dawn began managing Joseline about six months before the hit VH1 show and was said to be like a mother figure to her client by teaching her the ropes of the industry, helping her find an apartment and booking her paid shows and appearances.

Things eventually turned sour between the two back in 2014. Dawn accused her client of canceling an appearance after her flight was delayed but refusing to return the deposit she was paid, which ended with the manager cutting ties with Joseline.

Dawn then blasted Joseline in the media by accusing her and Stevie J of everything from drug addiction, abuse to infidelity.

The rocky relationship between the manager and Joseline played out during season 3 & 4. However, the two reconciled earlier this year with Joseline even inviting Dawn to her music release party in Atlanta. Dawn has admitted to serving 5-years in prison for drug charges back in 2002.
