Another one bites the dust on VH1’s Love & Hip-Hop.
After being arrested earlier this week for choking and dragging his girlfriend and fellow Love & Hip-Hop Hollywood castmate Masika Tucker, VH1 has decided to cut ties with Yung Berg. In a statement posted to the network’s blog yesterday (Nov. 6), it was confirmed that Tucker was indeed the victim, and that the incident occurred following the taping of the show’s reunion special:
Based on the severity of the allegations against Yung Berg, VH1 is terminating its relationship with him in connection with Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, effective immediately.
Yung Berg was arrested on November 5th and charged with criminal obstruction of breathing in connection with an assault on fellow cast member Masika Tucker.
The arrest took place in a New York hotel several hours after the taping of the reunion special for Love & Hip Hop Hollywood had wrapped.
Previous reports indicated that the altercation between Berg and Tucker occurred after the rapper/producer’s credit card had been declined. Berg reportedly stormed out, and Tucker paid the bill, after which they got into an argument. These claims have not been confirmed by either party involved.
Another brawl also occurred during the taping of the reunion show, which has not been given an official air date as yet.
