In Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 4, Episode 9, “Unlikely Duos,” NeNe Leakes went to lunch with Marlo Hampton to tell her the truth about her “relationship” with Charles Grant, but the gals ended up discussing something much juicier than former flames.

During the conversation, Marlo casually mentioned that she had been arrested seven times (five of them for violating her probation), and while NeNe was a tad surprised, she kept her cool and asked Marlo about her past.

Marlo explained,“Ten years ago I got into an altercation with a young lady in a club. I did six months county jail time. But at the end of the day that’s my past, I come from a mother who was abusive, on drugs, an alcoholic, straight from the projects, no father there. I know a lot of people come with that, and I know it’s not an excuse, but you don’t know my story until you walk in my shoes.”

However, Straight From the A is reporting that Marlo’s altercation in the club several years ago was much more serious than she let on, and ultimately had a tragic end.

Apparently, Marlo slashed open a girl’s face with a sharp object (possibly a razor) following an argument over a man. The young woman was so severely injured that she almost bled to death in the club, and was left horribly disfigured following the incident.

Marlo was then charged with aggravated battery with great bodily harm, and subsequently spent time in jail.

Tragically, the woman Marlo fought with that night committed suicide by jumping off of a bridge in 2005 — six years after the altercation — leaving behind a son and numerous other family members.
