Even after all the drama between Stevie J and his old friend Benzino was thought to be in the past — the saga continues. Apparently, Stevie has been going around telling folks that his former best friend was fired from Love & Hip-Hop after threatening the lives of himself, Joseline and the VH1 staff.
TMZ broke the story … Benzino got the ax right after the brawl on the reunion taping, which sent people to the hospital and resulted in criminal charges filed against Joseline Hernandez.. Stevie J tells TMZ … Benzino wouldn’t let it go … he went on a campaign of terror, threatening the lives of him and Joseline, producers and other staffers. Stevie tells us, “He said flat out he was going to kill us.”
However, Benzino tells TMZ: “Stevie J is a habitual liar and VH1 has never given me a reason for being fired.” He also went on to slander Stevie’s boo, “They wanted to keep the crackhead whore.”
There’s obviously no more love in this hip-hop story.
