DeAndre Cortez Way, better known by his stage name "Soulja Boy," has reportedly been confirmed as a new cast member of "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" along with his girlfriend Brittany "Diamond" Carpentero.

The couple, who began dating in 2011, will reportedly join the Vh1 reality TV show in season two starring alongside Diamond's ex-boyfriend Lil Scrappy, whose real name is Darryl Kevin Richardson II, according to MediaTakeOut.

Lil Scrappy, who recently became engaged to his baby's mother Erica Dixon during the season one reunion special, infamously left her for Diamond it was revealed in season one.

Diamond, who is a 24-year-old Atlanta based rapper, eventually left Lil Scrappy, 28, for Soulja Boy, 22, prompting Lil Scrappy to return to Dixon.

The bizarre love triangle was regularly infused as a plot line in season one of the hit reality TV show, and Lil Scrappy previously opened up about getting his heart broken.

"When that Diamond situation happened, it just taught me a real valuable lesson, 'cause I know, as I can see, I'm not a good judge of character," Lil Scrappy said during his appearance on "RapFix Live."

"I ain't never had my little heart broken before, but now that it happened, I don't think it would happen for a long time. But the good side about that is, you don't put nobody before God, don't ever put nobody before God, and I think I did a little bit of that trying to help her," he went on.

Diamond, who was asked about constantly being talked about by certain cast mates on the reality show, said that it is unfair for people to judge her based on her past but wished them both well.

"I wish everybody the best. I feel like only one person can judge me, and that's God," Diamond told MTV News at the BET Awards, adding, "That's my past. I'm in the future right now, and I wish everybody the best."

While some viewers may be expecting a confrontation between the two couples, it appears that Soulja Boy is taking the high road when it comes to his differences with Lil Scrappy.

"This is my baby, this is my girl, so anything said about her is basically they're saying it about me," he said while holding Diamond's hand.

"I'm backin' her 100 percent, and we're just focusing on the positive. Anybody talkin' about her name on TV, that's just bringin' us up more. So salute to them, we wish them the best," he added.
