5 Reasons Lil Scrappy Is Slipping Right About Now!

--When Lil Scrappy first appeared on “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” he was sort of the good guy. Despite cheating on his baby mother,Erica Dixon, with Diamond in the past, he seemed like he was ready to settle down and put Erica first. And, why shouldn’t he? she supports him, has stood by his side through thick and thin, and carries herself like a confident working woman. Not to mention her beaming good looks and curvaceous body.

Scrappy’s intentions behind Erica seemed noble, in fact heroic at times, like when he came to her defense after Stevie J. called her a “b**ch.” Together, they fought the enemy side by side.

It’s sad that only the scene before, Scrappy admitted that he and his “best friend” Shay “Buckee” Johnson of the “Flavor Of Love” reality show were more than just compadres. Scrappy backed his confession with a delicate rub of Shay’s a** (just in case Erica needed to squirm some more).

This isn’t the first time Scrappy hurt Erica. He carried on a full public relationship with female rapper Brittany Nicole Carpentero, better known as Diamond. Only, Diamond wasn’t in it for the love. She later cheated on him with Soulja Boy… Karma’s a b**ch!

Scrappy, a man who has broken hearts before, had a real taste of the hurt he had once caused Erica, but still, that wasn’t enough to keep him from mangling her chest muscle again!

He pleaded for understanding when he wanted to move out of their home and clearly, the first chance he got, he filled his empty apartment with love from another woman.

What he failed to mention to Shay, was that he and Erica were trying to work things out and were still sleeping together. Like on the night he had the infamous asthma attack, that Erica had spent the night. Instead he worded it to a hypothetical situation asking what she would do if she had an ex in that predicament.

Using the excuse that Erica “left him for dead,” he ended things with his long-time “ride or die chick.” The next scene shows him dedicating himself to a relationship with Shay, who stakes her claim in a private confessional and throws shots at Erica for not being “needed.”

We don’t know the dynamic of Scrappy and Erica’s love but we can see right through Scrappy’s lies and manipulation on the show.

Lil Scrappy is slipping, here’s why:

His mother:

Lil Scrappy’s mother, Momma Dee, is a heavy influence in his life and one hell of a character. We love that he has a strong relationship with her, they say a man who respects his mother will (most-likely) respect other women.  The issue here, is that she is too biased. Having someone who acts as the mediator in certain situations is actually a good idea. Someone older and wiser, who has been through the same things can offer great advice. But, when that person can’t offer subjective information–it becomes a problem. In Momma Dee’s eyes, Scrappy can do no wrong. Yes, a mother should stand by her son, but the other side of parenting, is letting your child know when he or she is wrong. Momma Dee is Scrappy’s mother, but she is also a woman!

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
