Bow Wow's Not Alone: 7 Rappers Who Dated Reality TV Women
It seems like Erica Mena will do anything to remain relevant, even if she has to date Bow Wow to get there. The Internets were ablaze when news leaked that Bow Wow and Erica Mena weren’t only dating, but now engaged to be married. We don’t know how, or where these two met, but we can be sure that Mona Scott Young will have her iPhone 6 ready to capture any footage along the way. In honor of their pending nuptials, here are 8 other rappers who dated members of reality TV women.

The Rapper: Drake
Dated: Catya (The Bad Girls Club)
Before Drake and Rihanna were rumored to have feelings for each other, the likes of which the world has never seen, The Great Canadian Hope had a thing for women who worked in waffle houses and small screen ragamuffins. Catya was going around thinking she was going to be Mrs. Aubrey Graham, but when she told the world he was a “Phenomenal Peach Eater,” she was on the next Bolt Bus back home.
The Rapper: Stevie J
Dated: Joseline Hernandez (Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta)
If you wanted to compile a list of your favorite 90’s songs into a soundtrack, chances are Stevie J produced about half of them, and sadly that’s the last thin he’ll be remembered for. He has entertained audiences with his trademark rat faces, and his relationship with “The Puerto Rican Princess” Joseline Hernandez. While his child’s mother MiMi claimed that they were together for thirteen years (which doesn’t make sense because he dated Eve for a strong two of those years) he made sure his presence was known everywhere. He claimed that he wasn’t interested in MiMi but two seasons later, fist fights and countless amounts of tracks being torn off of unsuspecting heads, the couple is rumored to have troubles with drugs, alcohol, and housing.
The Rapper: Yung Joc
Dated: Karlie Redd (Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta)
What do you do when no one cares about your career? You link up with someone else equally irrelevant and try to make some club appearances. When Karlie Redd dissolved her relationship with Benzino, she took some time to herself but was later linked to Yung Joc, who was married all the while. And you guessed it; Mona Scott Young was there so that we could watch the whole thing unfold. We’ll let Yung Joc slide on this one because “Buy You a Drank” will forever be the jam.
