Earlier this week we posted the season two supertrailer for Love And Hip Hop, and we could hardly believe the drama that’s to come. Punches were thrown between newbie Kimbella and Chrissy Lampkin, and there was a general vibe that s— is about to go down. Well, it would appear that things are getting just as heated off camera lately, because we just learned that the other new member of the cast, music manager Yandy Smith, has dropped Jim Jones as a client and Chrissy may be the reason why. Website TheYBF.com reports
“Yandy’s rep confirmed to TheYBF that she indeed recently dropped Jim Jones as a client after working with him for 7 years. The rep also said it was due in part to the on-going beef with Jimmy’s girlfriend Chrissy.”
They also report that Yandy and Chrissy came to blows at a party for Kimbella in Miami recently, though no reps would confirm the situation. We know from the supertrailer that Chrissy has issues with Yandy, but if these reports are all accurate, this is going to make an already explosive season even more heated.
UPDATE: Yandy has spoken to Parlour Magazine about why her professional relationship with Jim went south (she also compares Chrissy to Evelyn Lozada from Basketball Wives). She explains:
Whenever you’re a woman in the entertainment industry, you’ve got to deal with the wives and girlfriends of your artists. I’m cool with all of my other clients and their ladies but when women have insecurities or feel threatened by your career, they act bad and if they’re a hood chick, they’ll act hood…It got to a point where he wouldn’t answer my phone calls if she was in the house and we had business to do. He’s doing himself a disservice. I’m not trying to stop your money because the b*tch doesn’t like me.”
