Monday night's Love & Hip Hop Atlanta reunion may have been sponsored by crack. TMZ reports that Althea Eaton has slapped co-star Joseline Hernandez with a lawsuit, alleging that their brawl was triggered by Joseline's crack use.
According to the lawsuit obtained by Access Atlanta, the complaint was filed Tuesday (Aug. 26) in DeKalb County court. It alleges Joseline and Stevie J had “instigated numerous public conflicts” against Benzino and “began making threats of physical violence against Plaintiff Eaton” earlier this year.
It goes on to say that “numerous witnesses and media outlets have reported observing Defendant Hernandez smoking crack cocaine out of a pipe backstage at the LHHATL reunion show, and Plaintiffs believe that Defendant’s intoxication was a contributing factor to her violent and unprovoked assault of Plaintiff.”
As a result of the cat fight, Eaton “suffered a black eye, abrasions to her face and arms, and extensive bruising to her arms and legs," according to the lawsuit.
Joseline is being hit with charges on assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Eaton seeks compensatory and punitive damages determined by a jury. See a clip of the attack below.
