Benzino Reportedly Fired From "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" For Issuing Death Threats

(AllHipHop News) The reality show battle between former best friends Stevie J and Benzino apparently got so bad that VH1 had to fire Zino from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. At least that is the story Stevie J told TMZ. The music producer claims the network had to let Benzino go because he threatened to harm Stevie, co-star Joseline Hernandez, producers, and staffers.

“He said flat out he was going to kill us,” Stevie told the website.

It was announced that Benzino and his fiancee’ Althea Eaton were issued pink slips last month. The co-founder of The Source stated at the time he felt the show’s production team was merely taking the side of Stevie and Joseline. Benzino doubled down on that speculation with TMZ.

“Stevie J is a habitual liar and VH1 has never given me a reason for being fired,” Benzino stated. “They wanted to keep the crackhead whore.”

Both couples were involved in huge a melee during the taping of the reunion show earlier this year. The fight was partially sparked because Benzino and Althea made references to Stevie and Joseline being on drugs. Their ongoing feud was a main storyline during season three of the series.

    Bitch please. More coon ass shit. I don’t know who to believe because both sides are minstrel ass clowns.

    Stevie J and Benzino and their accounts/versions have as much credibility as Amber Rose or Kim Kardashian trying to advise a female on maintaining stability with a good man.

    But as I said before, this was Benzino’s last chance of getting any kind of small exposure because ain’t no one checking for his crappy music. I mean he fucked off his biggest accomplishment being the co-owner of The Source with his subpar or perhaps sorry ass rap career.

      I remember the old Source Mag being flooded with wack a$$ Made Men adverts. I was like who the f@ck are these clowns and why are they EVERYWHERE in The Source but nowhere anywhere else, then I found out that Benzino co-owned the Source and it all made sense.

    Getting fired from a minstrel show is a blessing in disguise. When you try to get hack on there that makes you a serious idiot.

    I never saw a single episode anyway.


    Doesn’t this mean that Stevie J snitched on Benzino? I mean, is that how men handle sh*t nowadays? Snitchin’?! Wow! And doesn’t this make Stevie J look like the b*tchiest b*tchy b*tch in the world?

    Benzino wasn’t the co-founder of the Source. He leached off of the co-founder to boost his own career and ended up destroying what was once known as THE hip hop magazine.
