"Love & Hip Hop" star Lil Scrappy recently spoke out about his violent confrontation with his reality TV co-star Stevie J and also addressed criticisms that the Vh1 Network heavily edited the scene.
During Monday night's episode 4, Lil Scrappy, whose real name is Darryl Kevin Richardson II, confronted Stevie J, born Steeben Jordan, over derogatory remarks that the music producer had made about the mother of his child, Erica Dixon. After exchanging a few words, a physical fight broke out.
"I put them hands on dude so bad, them fools were in the hospital that night! They went to the hospital, me and my baby mama we went home. They went to the hospital. That's why his eye is messed up, that's why Joselene … when I came, she ran because everybody got hands put on 'em that night ... everybody," Lil Scrappy told Atlanta radio station 107.9.
When asked about whether Vh1 edited the fighting scene, Lil Scrappy, 28, said that there was a lot that viewers did not see but maintains that the network has its reasons.
"Oh nah let me be honest with you cuz, I don't know if they tried to like ... Vh1 was getting a lot of flack for fighting and all that," Lil Scrappy told the station.
"Only thing [Stevie J] did was grab me, and I ain't understand why he grabbed me when ya'll see when I got up and I ran back over there to him I knocked (inaudible) from his face," he said.
Lil Scrappy claimed that Stevie J was more intent on touching him as opposed to fighting, which for him, raised questions about the renowned producer's sexuality.
"He was talking about man be cool let the ladies do that, let the ladies do that. I'm like I don't even know what the f--- is goin' on, you grabbin' me ... don't grab me," Lil Scrappy said in response to a question about what was said while the two were brawling on the ground.
"What I know is that he like touchin' men and I ain't tryna have him touch on me like that ... you feel me? Like grabbin' all on me and stuff. So I just went in on cuz they ain't show that part but as for him he did not hit me not one time. Fool kept trying to grab me that's why the second time I knocked his a-- out you feel me?" he said.
