* Not so good news for Love & Hip Hop Atlanta regular Nikko Smith (real name Londell Smith).

The reality star, who this season was involved in a controversial sex tape with his now ex-girlfriend Mimi Faust, has himself knee-deep in some legal heat.

Media partner, theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, Nikko has been slapped with a $1.1 million dollar lien, after losing a lawsuit which accused him and his wife of screwing over their music business partners. [Click here to learn more about Nikko's wife].

A music company named Supafly Entertainment sued Nikko and wife Margo Simms back in 2008.

Supafly explained in their lawsuit that they were working with a new band named Test Drive along with Nikko and Margo. However, the company says they fronted all the cash for the band to be paid to record an album — including promotions, studio time, song writers, production, website etc.

The company said that they then got an offer from Universal Music to sign the band, but Nikko and Margo started making questionable business moves behind the scenes to cut Supafly out of the picture and make a deal without them. For the full story, visit theJasmineBRAND.com.

Shay Johnson Addresses Relationship With Scrappy

Shay Johnson Addresses Relationship With Scrappy

* While she’s remained M.I.A. (missing in action) this season of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” Shay Johnson certainly still has something to say.

In an exclusive interview with media partner theJasmineBRAND.com, Shay shares the status of her relationship with Lil Scrappy now that she’s off the series.

“No I wasn’t on the show [this season] at all with Scrappy but I dealt with Scrappy off and on, the entire season. He still ain’t went nowhere.”

She also weighs in on Scrappy’s relationship with Bambi (“It’s not my fault she [Momma Dee] doesn’t like Bambi. I didn’t tell her not to like her—She don’t like her because she’s a nag and she’s a crybaby, and she whines over every little thing—I was told Bambi was always whining and crying because she always wanted that relationship with his family that I have“),  along with her response to allegations that she physically attacked a woman in an Atlanta night club.

On why we didn’t see her this season [of Love and Hip Hop]: 

Shay Johnson: I didn’t want to deal with certain drama on the show. I tried to go in a direction that’s best for me. I’m not saying I would never do the show. Its just the situation on the show and what was going on with Scrappy and I outside of the show, it was just too much going on. I didn’t want to be apart of it. I was exposed in a different light, first and second season, as if I was a sidepiece and I was not finna be like that. Its not like I have anything against Scrappy. Scrappy and I are actually still dealing with each other. We still do. We were dealing with each other throughout the show off and on. There’s a lot that goes on outside of the show that the public doesn’t get to see. No I wasn’t on the show at all with Scrappy but I dealt with Scrappy off and on, the entire season. He still ain’t went nowhere. At the end of the day with Scrappy and I will have is a friendship because that’s how it started. We didn’t start off dating or anything like that. We didn’t have any type of relationship on a personal level up until just before Love and Hip Hop season one. So, we were literally best friends, but you never know what can happen, I don’t predict the future, but it is, what it is, at this point.

On what her status is with Scrappy:

It’s definitely complicated. A lot of times I wish I never done anything sexual with Scrappy. No type of relationship on that level at all because it really destroyed our friendship. He would tell me everything, I knew everything that man was doing, but once we started dating, it just turned and it’s been destroying, to me, the friendship ever since. We tried to get it back but we’re attracted to each other and we did a lot more outside of just being friends. I do care for him; I have much love for him, forever. But being with him in the future, I can’t predict that. My focus is somewhere else. He ain’t going nowhere and I don’t care who knows about it.

On reports that she was allegedly in a fight with one of Joseline Hernandez’s friends:

It’s nothing to talk about. Certain situation gets fabricated. Everybody is thinking they know what’s going on and watching something that didn’t really happen. I don’t like to be bullied. It was a situation where I was bullied along with four other individuals, at the same night, in the same club, by the same individual. Sometimes you can’t keep bullying people because you’re going to run into someone who’s not going to be able to take it. And going to stand up for herself and that’s me, I’m going to stand up for myself, you can’t bully me. Yes I was in a bully situation, some body tried to bully me.
