When will Mona Scott-Young learn that these “Love & Hip Hop” reunions never end well? Last night, during the “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood” reunion taping, Ray J’s girlfriend Princess Love attacked his former assistant Morgan Hardman, who was reportedly accusing him of abuse — a claim she also made a few weeks ago on Instagram. According to TMZ, Princess hauled off and socked Morgan in the face — sending her crashing to the ground. Paramedics were called.
In case you haven’t been keeping up with “LHHH,” Ray fired Morgan after she took a job with her friend/ cast mate Yesi Ortiz (“Power 106”) which is when Morgan first alleged that Ray abused her.
Back in October, she wrote this on Instagram, “Tell the real reason I don’t f*ck with you and why I don’t work for you because you put your hands on me in front of my child talking about you gonna have me killed. Wow all in front of my son you drunk a** ni**a. Go get some help cause I’m not the only one UR beating on … hows that for some (tea). 10 years of book loyal to the wrong F**k boy.”
Morgan’s friend Yesi, who’s known as the “Voice Of L.A.,” chatted with us about the incident and has a completely different version of what’s being reported about the reunion brawl.
“Let me clear that up right now. I was right next to Morgan. It was me, Morgan, Mona, Ray and Princess. It looked like [Princess] came at [Morgan] hard because she was the one who came up and charged, but Morgan was the one who really swung at home girl. And then security came. No one was knocked out. Morgan really got the best hit in it all. She came forward and Morgan just…”
Morgan posted this video on Instagram, clarifying that she was not knocked out. “They love to lie and I’ll keep killing them with truth. Let’s go,” she wrote. In another post, she wrote, “Lol now we all know ray j relationship with TMZ he can have anything posted lol laid flat out lol 😂 good one make sure everyone checks out the real story on the breakfast club tomorrow morning the truth behind my son and every other lie they tell I will keep telling the truth and keep praying for this man to get help.”
By help, Morgan is most-likely talking about Ray’s addiction. Yesi considered Ray a close friend after helping his career when no one else would and thinks his addiction is what’s causing his reckless behavior.
“I feel really disrespected by Ray J. I was seeking a public apology as a professional colleague — why he would come at me the way he did. And as a woman why he would come at me the way he did,” she said. “If anything I’m more disappointed.”
She continued, “I think he does have a problem and is afraid to admit it. I’m coming from a friend who cares about him. When Whitney [Houston] passed I reached out to him and said ‘Let’s get your mind out of Hollywood’ because if you’re stuck in that world, you need balance […] I think it’s hard for him to level-headed when people around him aren’t level-headed.”
As for the abuse accusations, Yesi revealed that Morgan confided in her about they way she was being treated by Ray. “Morgan is my friend so, she had told me some things in confidence. One of those things had been how Ray treated her — verbally abusive and things like that. As far as physical violence…I don’t want to speak on her behalf with that but you’ll see on the reunion, when it comes out that she throws out some allegations. Whether or not they decide to keep it on air.”
Morgan and Princess weren’t the only “LHHH” stars who ended their night on a sour note. Yung Berg was arrested after choking his girlfriend Masika. TMZ reports, Berg and Masika went out to dinner when his credit card was declined. He allegedly stormed out of the restaurant and Masika paid for the meal. When she confronted him about it, he lost it and grabbed her neck. According to reports, he dragged her by her hair then ended the assault by choking her.
Yesi didn’t witness the disturbing altercation, but said it’s “out of character” for the super producer. I knew Berg for years and we have a song together. It’s always been cool, fun, turn up. I’ve never would have imagined. But ya know, the reunion — the taping there was a lot of negative energy on stage. There was a lot of smack talking, crying, anger. And when you add alcohol to it, people were drinking and smoking — whatever the situation. I consider myself to be the nicest person but if someone says ‘Good day’ to me, because it was that energy.”
She added, “At the end of the day, I hit up Masika to see if she was OK. I’m definitely at a loss for words.”
