Alexis Skyy in the ‘Love & Hip Hop’ franchise

Skyy has already been three different shows in the Love & Hip Hop franchise and is one of only a few stars to appear on more than two different series. She first appeared in the franchise when she had a cameo in a season 5 episode of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta and later guest-starring in a season 6 episode.

She officially joined the franchise as a supporting cast member on Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood in season 4. The storyline that season chronicled the feud she had with Masika Kalysha, as both of them were in a love triangle with Fetty Wap. For a short period of time, she also had a relationship with rapper Solo Lucci. She also got into a confrontation with the mother of his child, Sara Scott. Skyy left the show before the season four reunion.

She returned to the franchise as a supporting cast member for Love & Hip Hop: New York’s ninth season. Her storyline mainly revolved around her signing a record deal and dealing with being a single mother.

Her storyline this season should be timely and powerful

When she makes her Love & Hip Hop debut as a supporting cast member, Skyy’s primary storyline seems to be her going public about being a victim of sex trafficking.

Skyy posted a preview clip from the show on her Instagram, and in a lengthy caption, detailed her story.

She wrote in part, “for the first time EVER…in my life… I’m opening up about my tramatic [sic] human trafficking experience I went thru [sic]as a little girl…!!! l never in my life, planned on saying anything UNTIL one day, I mention part of it & SO SO SO MANY young girls reached out to me about them currently going thru the same thing & having similar stories!!!

LHHATL this season is a really BIG season for me, for the first time EVER…in my life… I’m opening up about my tramatic human trafficking experience I went thru as a little girl…!!! l never in my life, planned on saying anything UNTIL one day, I mention part of it & SO SO SO MANY young girls reached out to me about them currently going thru the same thing & having similar stories!!! It’s so sad & so important you talk to, love, guide & caress your children!! Everyday I’m attacked, judged & accused of lying… all because, I’ve never spoke on my story before, but what nobody knows is, I still to this day haven’t told my mom, my grandmother or none of my immediate family!!! I been so afraid for many years to talk about any of it, specifically in fear of a possible revenge, harassment & lord knows what else!! I was only 15 years old when I was kidnapped & forced into human trafficking by a guy 20 years older than me!! Every single day.. for 2 months… he would beat on me, threaten to kill me, my family & etc!!! Multiple times he held a loaded gun to my face, abused & raped me!! Also forcing me to have sexual intercourse who would pay!!! It’s so much shyt I’ve been thru as a young girl that nobody knows!! This season will be the first time my mother, dad & all my other family will hear about this!!! For so many years I didn’t know how to tell my family about this!! But after hearing so many stories similar to my own, I gotta be a role model to these young girls!! If it’s something I can say or do that will help or save some of these girls from making the mistakes I did & help bring awareness to the danger these girls face… I HAVE to face my fears!!! I was a very young girl who was taken advantage of & abused. Many nights I just knew the end was near… but by the grace of god I was saved & rescued from this man, from a guy I’ve never been able to see again or thank!! I don’t really wanna speak too much on it right now because I really want you all to tune into #LHHATL & get to understand me so much more! Understand my pain, my growth, & what I been thru… ❤️ I wanna give a HUGE thank u to Stef, Mona, Paris, Jacinda,
