Has the term “journalistic integrity” gone out the window? Well, that’s what Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Mimi Faust is claiming — big time.

According to Mimi, an article has surfaced online in which she is said to have admitted her sex tape with boyfriend/co-star Nikko (which was later distributed by Vivid Entertainment) wasn’t leaked at all. This, of course, is a complete and utter lie and Mimi’s urging fans to not feed into the libelous claims.

“This article that is floating around about me where they claim to have me quoted talking about the tape is completely and utterly false. I have never done such interview, nor are they my words. Please do not support such slander. It is sad that a news portal would post something fake and falsely quote someone. #MimiFaust” Mimi’s textgram on Instagram  read. The reality star then captioned her post, “When they aren't on the success level of other credited media outlets they lie.

Sigh. Hopefully the same lawyers Mimi wanted to send after Benzino over her image on the cover of Hip Hop Weekly will handle this messy situation before it gets out of hand.
