Back in 2017, soon after fans and the star herself learned that she wouldn’t be on LHH, she posted a video that revealed Love & Hip Hop‘s then-undisclosed story lines:
“So since Love & Hip Hop franchise don’t want me no more, it’s all good. Hey, Stephanie Gale. Hey, Mona. I still f–k with y’all, but I’m bout to f–k all y’all shit up. Since y’all wanna get mad at me because this muthaf–ka went and threaten me. I didn’t even tell nobody I was on the show, look like I’m not now. I don’t give a f–k if y’all fired me cause I’m doing three other TV shows. I’m about to air out errybody’s airline. Um, um… storyline.”
She started with Shauna Brooks exposing Stevie J and ends with telling Kirk’s alleged baby mama to stop making her daughter lie about being Kirk’s daughter. (All of which ended up coming true.) Then, she threatened to sue them.
This was right after Stevie J started up a whole new beef with Jhonni.

Jhonni was a newbie on Love & Hip Hop just a few years ago, but she took a step back from the show in 2015. During her time on the VH1 series, the Rich Dollaz artist fooled around with Stevie J, which is what likely led to the beef. While some say she should have seen it coming before messing around with him, Jhonni is probably regretting her decision to sleep with the “Come Here Party” artist these days.
She may not have known it at the time, but according to Stevie, he has a tape of the couple getting it on. For reasons still not revealed, he threatened to release the video and get Jhonni blackballed from Love & Hip Hop.
Jhonni and Stevie exchanged heated text messages, in which Stevie threatened her. “I play with guns,” he wrote. Jhonni, fed up with the producer and his antics, posted the text messages on Instagram. She then posted text messages from her father responding to Stevie’s threat. He wrote:
“He play with guns please ask him who showed him his first gun keep acting like he don’t know. And tell him to keep acting like he doesn’t know ask him who checked on his a– when Big got killed at daddy’s house studios while Ronald Isley and Angela Windbush where there. And he play with guns, OK.”
The star’s father is clearly not one to be messed with — and apparently the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Jhonni hopped on Instagram herself, daring Stevie J to play with her. The star wrote:
“Post any video that you want to. I don’t need TV. TV need me. Remember that Stevie J. I’m not these girls that you can punk over. I got a real live manager. I have a real, real live manager. So if you wanna play, play like you want to, you know where I be at. You can post the video.
You can post anything, cause you was just asking me to come to your house just a minute ago. What four days ago? Don’t play with me. Don’t play with me. Please don’t play with me. Don’t. You can’t say I have any STDs or nothin, cause all my papers with me. I can post em. I’m not these girls, but I’ll be the right for you. I’m the real danger zone. And I’m not even signed to you. How you a boss and you can’t even make your artist a boss? Play with me if you want to. Play with me if you want to. Please do.”
Before that, he was pitting two women against each other. Back in August of 2017, Stevie blamed Joseline Hernandez’s alleged jealously of Cardi B for why he couldn’t see Bonnie Bella.
The producer said in an Instagram video, “Apparently, since Cardi B winning. Joseline won’t let me see the baby.” Stevie also claims that the reason Cardi B is successful is that she did what she was supposed to do and didn’t piss anyone off. (He could be referring to the recently released “Run Me My Money,” an alleged dedication to Mona Scott-Young.)
He signs off the video, saying, “Hats off to Cardi B. Guess I’ll see you in court.”

Cardi never acknowledged Stevie’s claims, nor did she shade Joseline. Who she did do was call out a former LHHNY co-star.
Though the Invasion of Privacy artist is on a performance hiatus, she’s far from out of the spotlight. According to up and coming artist Nya Lee, who Cardi has known since her Love & Hip Hop days, the mommy-to-be is as loud as ever.
Lee posted screenshots of Instagram direct messages, where Cardi was… less than cordial with her.
“You know I spent hours fighting with myself on whether or not to even address this,” Lee began in the caption of the post. She ultimately decided to share because she’s assumably tired of “the media often times [brushing] things under the rug for their favs.”
The screenshots, which are dated April 7 of this year, shows Cardi messaging Lee after “peepin the funny s**t.” However, Lee’s post didn’t give any indication as to what lead to the heated message, leaving viewers a little confused.
“I find it so funny how you be on my dms Trina get close but you be doing shady s**t. EAT A D**K hating a** b***h,” Cardi wrote. “I peepin the funny s**t keep the same f**kin energy when you come around me.”
In response, Lee snapped right back. “Girl bye ain’t nobody shady,” Lee wrote. “You deserve what you have because [of] your consistent hard work.
“I DON’T LIKE YOUR FLOW AND DELIVERY and i have the right to my own f**king opinion,” Lee added. “So get out of your pregnancy hormones b***h CAUSE YOU KNOW IM FAR FROM THE ONE TO PLAY WITH.”
“I’ve never hated on you and still don’t,” Lee went on. “Your success ain’t EVER stop or detour my grind so like i said carry on ….. you was sucking my video guys d**k while he was editing my videos back in the day saying how dope i was so miss me with the bulls**t b***h.”
“B***h you was always trash and you still trash that’s why you still at where you at,” Cardi clapped back. “My delivery sucks but you beg me to do a song with you and kashdoll.”
“Idgaf say less and i want all the smoke,” Cardi added.
According to the screenshots, the exchange went on for quiet some time. Lee threw Cardi’s ghostwriting rumors in her face, before Cardi reminded Lee that she “begged” her for a feature. It ended with Lee telling Cardi that “time will show who the real underdog from NYC was.”
Stevie J’s track record with females hasn’t been… the best. In March, a women named “MizJelly” on Instagram claimed that she was pregnant with the music producer’s baby. According to her, she didn’t plan on taking care of her child by herself.
After breaking the pregnancy news under a promo video for the second season of VH1’s Leave It To Stevie, she sent Stevie a… personalized message.
“They round here advertising this s**t, they need to advertise the fact that Stevie J has a baby otw and is running from his responsibility,” the alleged expecting-mom wrote. “He can ignore all he want […] he gone take care my baby.”
After making her Instagram private, she told the internet exactly what she thought of her supposed baby daddy.
“You are a old a** fraud. All you do is pimp b***hes. You take b***hes’ money. You a muthaf**kin broke a**. You ain’t got s**t. You ain’t got no muthaf**kin money. You broke,” she said in a video.

Referencing the father-of-six’s recent child support case, MizJelly added, “That’s why you behind.”
“Let’s be clear b***h,” she continued in another video. “You can block me all you muthaf**kin want, but guess what n***a… I could still find yo a**. Okay?” The mommy-to-be went on to say that she knows where Stevie lives and how to contact him.
