Tommie Threatens to Quit “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” Over Alcoholic Claims By Dancehall Artist Spice

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta fan favorite Tommie Lee is known and loved for her carefree and sassy attitude, but those same personality traits are the reason why she finds herself in so much trouble.

On last week’s episode, Tommie was confronted by her fellow castmate, “LHHATL” newcomer and Jamaican dancehall artist Spice, after she showed up to a music video shoot three hours (or, in the words of Spice, “tree howuz”) late. However, Tommie claims the whole thing was set up by producers, and she doesn’t know if she’ll be coming back next season because she’s tired of them portraying her as an alcoholic.

Spice and Tommie were working on a song together until things went sour between the two. Spice alleged that Tommie was always late to their studio sessions, and when she did finally show up, she was drunk as hell.

On the show, Spice was seen arguing with Tommie at the video shoot for the collaboration, and at one point during their confrontation, a clearly agitated Spice took Tommie’s drink out of her hand and tossed it, even after Tommie tried to apologize for being tardy to the party.

“You need to stop drinking,” Spice told Tommie, “And you need to sit the f**k down and get yourself together!”

“I got mad love for Tommie, and I think she has a lot of talent,” Spice said in her green screen confessional, “but she’s gonna make her love for alcohol get in the way of her love for the music.”

But, according to Tommie, all of that is bullsh*t. She told fans on Facebook that she was actually on time for the shoot, and production knew what was going on, and they basically set her up to look like she was late all for a storyline.

“Some of these chicks on this show I’m on find it very easy to do sneaky sh*t and then pin it on [me] because according to them I’m a ‘drunk’ and [an] ‘alcoholic,’” the reality star explained. “I was never late. Anything that pertains to my career I’m never late to. I was in the parking lot taking pics and production came to me. Spice knew what was going to happen in that scene, so I don’t play that bull about Tommie is late because she was drinking. I’m really debating on whether or not to return next season.”

Tommie also let it be known that not only was she always on time, but she also paid for the sessions. She also said she went out of her way to introduce Spice to industry contacts to help her cross over from the Dancehall genre.

As for their collaboration, Tommie says that’s been canceled, but she urged her fans to listen to “Cheat On Me,” her new single with Blac Youngsta. “[To] all you people that were expecting the Spice track … that’s over so keep streaming Cheat On Me,” she wrote.

Also, according to Tommie, her pet pig Gucci, really was sick the morning of her video shoot with Spice. “Gucci the pig was sick though and I haven’t really had pets like that so I got scared,” she said.

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. on VH1.

Was Tommie Lee Fired From Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Over Her Alcoholism?

Tommie showed her whole entire A-S-S on last night’s episode of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, leaving many fans of the show wondering whether or not she was fired.

Viewers watched as Tommie’s alcoholism reared its ugly head and she had an insane meltdown in one of the most explosive moments in the show’s entire 6-year history. I mean, we’ve seen Joseline go crazy, but this was a whole ‘nother level of crazy that made Joseline’s antics look tame compared to Tommie’s

It all started when Rasheeda wanted her girlfriends to fly out with her to Houston for the grand opening of her new Pressed store. But this won’t be your ordinary trip, Rasheeda says, because she plans to take the ladies (and some of the men) to a dude ranch while they’re there. How fun!

Spice made it a point to mention that she’s down for the turn-up, as long as Rasheeda doesn’t invite Tommie’s pig—a direct shot at Tommie for being “TREE HOWAS LATE” to their video shoot, which caused her to have to cancel their launch party due to Tommie’s negligence. This obviously didn’t go over well with Tommie, who was drunk as a skunk by then, and she didn’t appreciate Spice trying her (and her pig) like that.

When Spice tries to explain to Tommie why she’s upset with her, Tommie starts laughing in her face, which pisses Spice off and creates one helluva awkward moment for everyone one set. Then Tommie herself gets pissed off when a producer in the background tires to get her to change the subject why telling her to “tell them about Scrapp.” And from then on, Tommie went into full meltdown mode and went all the way AWF on the show’s production.

Tommie’s bizarre behavior culminated when she started yelling out insults that made absolutely zero sense, but you could hear her saying she was going to “shut y’all whole house down because you know I know where y’all live at” and how she’s “gotta go to jail tonight.” (Sidenote: Tommie did, in fact, go to jail that night after turning herself in for that mall employee beatdown situation).

At this point, everyone’s looking at Tommie like…

After security finally escorts her out, viewers were treated to on-screen text that read: “As Tommie was escorted out, she became increasingly agitated. She tried to return to confront Spice, and was stopped by security.” They weren’t able to capture video footage, but they did get the audio as she tried to rush back on set to “confront” Spice. The whole thing was just a big ol’ mess, and producers had basically wiped their hands of Tommie at this point.

Later, after everyone gets to Houston, the episode concludes with LHHATL executive producer Stephanie Gayle announcing to the cast that production has made the decision to no longer film with Tommie due to her erratic behavior fueled by her alcohol abuse. Without going into too much detail, Stephanie explained that Tommie had been breaking a lot of the rules, including attacking security, and production generally just wants to help her… off-camera, of course.

And with that, folks are now wondering about Tommie’s future on the show. Was she fired or is she just taking a temporary leave of absence? Based on Stephanie’s explanation, it doesn’t sound like she was given the boot COMPLETELY, but it does seem like she’s treading on thin ice, meaning that if she continues to act this way, she’ll be out of a job.

Hopefully, Tommie can get her sh*t together before she has to “part ways” with the show, a la Joseline Hernandez.

As you all may or may not know, a judge has ordered Tommie to wear an alcohol monitoring device in lieu of going to jail. According to TMZ, the device—which costs about $500 from Tommie’s pockets—detects whether or not any alcohol is in Tommie’s system through her sweat every 30 minutes.

A number of photos Tommie recently posted on Instagram shows that she’s wearing the device right now, so, fingers crossed, she’s learning how to cope with life’s ups and downs WITHOUT having to turn to a bottle.
