As entertaining as the latest season of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” was, the stories from the characters we have grown to love have caused a bit of controversy. K.

The filing of this suit is to compensate for the irreparable damage that has been done to my reputation and to deter these companies from doing such future harm to others.”
