#MixxViews: Yung Berg fired from Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood

By  |  0 Comments



“Love & Hip Hop” execs and VH1 have had their fair share of  scolding when it comes to their lackadaisical approach against violence on the show, but it seems the network has finally put their foot down and it has landed on Yung Berg.

After his recent arrest and allegations that he physically assaulted girlfriend/co-star Masika Kalysha, VH1 announced that Berg has been fired by the network. Yung Berg was charged with criminal obstruction of breathing last week after allegedly grabbing Masika by the neck, dragging and hitting her.  As a result of the attack, Masika sustained numerous injuries including multiple lacerations and bruising. According to cast members, Berg was drinking heavily that night, following the taping of the season 1 reunion show.

“Based on the severity of the allegations against Yung Berg, VH1 is terminating its relationship with him in connection with ‘Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood,” effective immediately,” read a statement from the network.

Though many were shock by the nature of Berg’s arrest, he’s not the only “Love & Hip Hop” star that’s become violent while the cameras are rolling. “LHHATL” stars Benzino and Althea Heart were recently booted from the Atlanta cast after the two were involved in a violent fight with Joseline Hernandez Jordan and Stevie J during the reunion taping last season.

Cast member Lil Scrappy, of “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta,” and Peter Gunz, member of the original New York series, are also known to have a temper on them when it comes to the ladies. Scrappy was filmed having a heated argument with cast mate, Ericka Pinkett, and when she threatened to slap him, his response was “That will be the last time ever slapping a n*gga in real life.” Pinkett threw a drink at Scrappy then cameras faded to black leaving audience members plenty to speculate. Gunz lashed out last season when he threw dishes at co-star, Erica Mena, after a meeting turned sour. But the madness doesn’t stop there.

Recent interviews have surfaced with LAHHH member, Morgan Hardman, allegedly claiming fellow co-star and former employer, Ray J, beat the ex-assistant in front of her son this past June and has also become physical with girlfriend Princess Love.

It looks as if the franchise has had enough of the mayhem. Hopefully the network has instituted a much needed no violence policy, and if that’s the case, Berg is the first casualty.
