Hip Hop & Lawsuits
Is Mama Dee suing Lil’ Scrappy’s ex Diamond for slander? That’s the question everyone wants to know. Tuesday night, the new Oxygen T.I executive produced reality show “Sisterhood of Hip Hop” debuted as the highest viewed freshman show in the Oxygen Network history. The cast includes some new and some familiar faces in female Hip Hop community such as Siya, Brianna Perry, Bia, Nyemiah Supreme and Atl femcee Diamond, who once dated rappers Soulja Boy and Lil’ Scrappy.
With that being said, when you’re on the newest/most talked about reality show on tv I guess lawsuits come with the territory. During the premiere episode made references to old issues she had with Rapper Lil’ Scrappy and his overbearing mother, Mama Dee. She claims Lil’ Scrappy abused her, cheated on her and stole from her. She also alleges Scrappy’s mother, who goes by Momma Dee, specifically stole her clothes and jewelry. Well Mama Dee didn’t take too kindly to Diamond dragging her and her son’s name through the mud on national tv.
Momma Dee’s publicist issued the following statement.
“It is unfortunate that Ms.Carpentero aka Diamond continues to slander my client and her son in the press. The relationship between my client’s son and Ms. Carpentero ended years ago yet she continues to talk about Momma Dee in a negative light, most recently making false claims that my client stole property. We are not taking such accusations lightly and will use the appropriate channels to handle the defamation of character should Ms. Carpentero continue to make said claims. We wish Diamond well in all her future endeavors.”
Lil’ Scrappy decided to throw subliminal and not so subliminal shots at Diamond via instragram with a posting that reads “Fake people have an image to maintain. Real people, just don’t care” and a snippet of his new record “Build A Bitch”. Sidenote: Who’s checking for new music from Lil Scrappy? lmfao
