Is Benzino Quitting Love & Hip Hop Atlanta? He Says…
The tension between Love & Hip Hop Atlanta co-stars Benzino and Stevie J. reached its boiling point towards the end Monday night’s Season 3 reunion special. Fans caught a glimpse of the fight between Stevie; his wife, Joseline Hernandez; Zino; and his fianceé, Althea Heart that would ultimately become the reunion show brawl. While fans are dying to see what happens next for the sheer entertainment of it, Benzino doesn’t think it’s fun at all — so much so, that he’s even contemplating leaving the show!
During a recent inty with Atlanta’s radio station, Hot 107.9, Benzino said that he was uncertain of his future with Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. The rapper appeared optimistic to the idea of returning “if the producers want me back in a position where I can show the positivity … where we can show progress and we can show our love.” But he later added, “If it’s going to be anything but that, who knows.”
“I know there’s a Season 4 coming, and I don’t know,” he also said, stating, “We’ll just have to wait and see. I know I want to do a lot of things, you know what I’m saying? I just don’t want to be caught up with drama. Especially with people I consider to be my brother and women and girls.”
However, Benzino leaving the show just may not be up to his discretion. Moments later, Zino revealed, “We supposed to start shooting Season 4 in two months, and I haven’t even got a call yet, so to be honest I don’t even know if I’ll be on the show. I don’t know if they want me back or not.”
“We’ll never know that,” he said, adding, “it’s hard to speculate.” He continued on with his retraction, saying, “We would not like to think that someone’s putting the battery in [Joseline’s] back to cause all this confusion, but at the end of the day, just like in the real world … you got people who are instigators, you got people who love misery loves company, so I stop speculating.”
