‘Love & Hip Hop’: Former Star Tommie Lee Has a Bone to Pick With 50 Cent in Relation to ‘Power’
What is Tommie Lee most known for?
Lee, whose real name is Atasha Chizzaah Jefferson, was on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta for a few seasons, but she is arguably one of the most-talked-about cast members in the franchise history. Aside from this, she is also noteworthy as a one of the most popular stars in the franchise who joined in a later season. She was first a supporting cast member in season 5 of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta. After this, she became a main cast member for seasons 6 and 7. Outside of the main series, she also appeared Love & Hip Hop spinoff show Leave it to Stevie, which started Stevie J.
During her time on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, most of Lee’s storylines were centered on her volatile relationship with Scrapp DeLeon. She also had feuds with other cast members, such as Joseline Hernandez. Outside of this, she had storylines that included her trying to stay sober and trying to repair the fractured relationship she had with her mother.
However, if what her comments in 2019 are anything to go by, Lee doesn’t have any plans on coming back to the show. Lee stated last year that she would never return to the Love & Hip Hop franchise, saying, “that era is dead.”
She wrote on Instagram:
“No I am not nor will I ever return to love&hiphop so pls stop asking that error is dead! #tommies**t. I’m much happier to not be under that umbrella it was misery and depression there.”
At one point, it was rumored that she would be joining the cast of Growing up Hip Hop: Atlanta with Bow Wow, but this never came to fruition.
Tommie Lee calls out 50 Cent
Though Lee may not have plans to return to Love & Hip Hop, or reality television period for that matter, it sounds like she wants to may a foray into scripted television. She aired out concerns with 50 Cent recently about the fact that she was not on Power after expressing interest in playing Ghost’s girlfriend. The show currently has a new spinoff on Starz, titled Power Book II: Ghost.
A fan asked her on Instagram about her interest in starring in films or television series. “It’s not necessarily a movie. It’s a series. Everybody knows I love Power and I want to be on Power, but I absolutely hate 50 Cent,” she said, as reported by Madame Noire.
When she asked to be on Power, instead of just telling her no, Lee says that 50 Cent blocked her. She explained, “All I said was. I had DM’d him. All I said was, ‘I got a idea for Power. I could be Ghost’s girlfriend. I just wanted to throw that out there. That motherf****r blocked me. Such a a–hole and I think I would have done really good on Power.”
Perhaps 50 Cent will catch wind of her comments and we could see her on one of the several other Power series that are in development at Starz. You never know what could happen! In any event, Lee does have a role in the upcoming film, True to the Game 3.
