Stevie J. Confronts Benzino Over Hip Hop Weekly Magazine Cover! (VIDEO)
At the end of last week’s episode of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, Joseline Hernandez was extremely pissed that Stevie J..’s ex, Mimi Faust, was on the cover of Benzino’s magazine, Hip Hop Weekly, which featured Joseline as a pull-out centerfold. Now in this new sneak peek, Stevie takes his frustration out on Zino for putting Mimi on the cover and giving him one hell of a headache back home.
“Grigio, you did it again,” Stevie tells his friend. When Zino asks Stevie if he thinks the cover’s great, Stevie replies, “Actually I don’t love it.” Stevie tells his friend and business partner, “Actually, I thought as a partner in Hip Hop Weekly, I would get a text, a email, or anything about the cover.”
This is when Zino reminds Stevie that not only did he talk to the former Bad Boy producer about putting Mimi on the cover, they had a deadline to decide whether or not Mimi’s sextape would be featured in the magazine. Furthermore, Benzino tries to tell his friend of all the business Mimi’s sex tape scandal will bring to their magazine: “Do you know how much money we’re going to make off of that? Why is it bothering you? It’s a good look for you!”
However, Stevie’s not worried about the money; he’s concerned about the mother of his daughter being talked about for her sex tape, but Zino replies Mimi “already f—d that up. She did that. You ain’t got nothing to do with that.”
Is this the beginning of the tension that ultimately tears apart Love & Hip Hop Atlanta best friends Stevie J. and Benzino? Guess we’ll have to tune in to see!
A new episode of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 3 airs Monday, July 28, at 8 p.m. ET on VH1.
