Can't do that
Love & Hip Hop star Althea Eaton doesn’t care who is watching ― and that includes the police.
She was recently arrested and booked for battery after smacking Benzino upside the head in front of police officers. According to TMZ, the Los Angeles Police Department was called to Eaton’s home in the San Fernando Valley on Sunday night. According to anonymous sources who spoke to the gossip website, Eaton wanted Benzino to get out and he was refusing to cooperate.
Apparently, things escalated from there and Eaton whacked Benzino in the head in front of several LAPD officers who quickly grabbed her and read her her rights. Her bail was set at $20K and she’s already back out. So, Benzino better keep his head on a swivel.
As fans of the show know, the couple has always had their ups and downs. Last we heard from the pair Benzino was making a spectacle of himself and publicly begging Althea to take him back after he was a dirty dog.
You see, Benzino was aired out by an ex who said that he was living with her while he was still in a relationship with Eaton. The woman brought all of her claims to light after she realized that she was a bit more of a side chick than she’d previously thought.
“Been quiet, loyal, ride or die for this n**ga for the past 2 years,” wrote Instagram user @mxssmalayla, along with photos of Benzino and herself cuddling and hooking up. “He’s been living with me for the past three months and has the audacity to text other b***hes. Been thru so much s**t behind him and this is how he repays me.”
“I guess a girl who is loyal, stays in her own lane and not sack chasing isn’t good enough,” she sadded. “Hope that b***h you were texting has a spare room for you.”
She also sent a message directly to Althea, just in case she might have somehow missed it.
“The reason he can’t send you money for your hair and nails and diapers is because he’s been taking care of me since April 2015,” she said.She continued:
“Remember when he would barely come home from LA? He was flying me out instead. Saw texts of him telling you he hasn’t been with anyone else, will always love you, blah blah. He’s been attached to me since we met and told me your box trash and you was musty sometimes. Guess that’s why he would pull up on me everyday when he was with you. You can have him back now. Damaged goods, you both are perfect for each other.”
TMZ ran into Benzino and Eaton shortly after the photos were released and she seemed ready to take the man back for a price. In a clip of Benzino begging outside of the restaurant Catch, Eaton can be heard requesting even more jewelry from the reality TV star.
There’s a reason the pair were on LHHATL from jump, and it’s messiness like this.
