For three seasons on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, we have all got to watch the ups and downs of Benzino and Stevei J’s friendship. On the season three reunion things got overly heated and it looks like we may have seen the last of this bromance. Benzino found himself a new lady love Althea.
Things seemed to be good with them all, until Althea told Benzino that she slept with Stevie J before they had gotten together. Benzino confronted Stevie J, who denied it and word got back to Joseline. Things became rocky between Stevie J and Joseline and Josline had no love for Benzino’s new squeeze. Until the last episode of the season, Stevie J continued to protest his innocence. He was adamant that he did not smash the homey.
Through all the drama around the big question of did they or didn’t they, Stevie J and Benzino’s friendship seemed to be holding on, even if by a thread. Things took a turn for the worse when Benzino joined in on the Twitter war between Joseline and Althea.
Benzino felt the need to defend his wife by going at Joseline on social media. Of course that prompted Stevie J to defend his wife. And a twitter beef was born. The fighting did not stop on Twitter. On the season three reunion show things exploded.
Both couples sat on their side of the stage, whispering amongst themselves before the actually taping of the show began. Any one sitting in close proximity could tell that something was about to go down.
When Joseline and Stevie J complained of being hot, Benzino and Althea made comments about cocaine, which was said loud enough for Stevie J to hear.
Soon after the commercial break, Stevie J and Joseline jumped out of their seats and charged Benzino and Althea. Madness soon erupted and the security worked hard to clear the studio.
The foursome couldn’t even return to the reunion and did separate interviews after the fact. The time away to think didn’t seem to calm things down any. Benzino was accused of punching Joseline in the face and Stevie J was accused of hesitating.
Watch the video back. Stevie J stopped momentarily until security approached and then he continued to charge towards Benzino. He says it was to give his former friend time to stand but could it have been fear or maybe he hesitated because he didn’t really want to fight his friend?
Also, Benzino has taken to Twitter to share his regret for putting his hands on a female. So he has owned up to the fact that he did indeed punch Joseline. With everything that went down between the two of them, neither is taking a step to apologize or end the beef.
Is it possible that we have seen the end of Stevie J and Benzino? – One can only hope!
