Lil Scrappy’s “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” Paychecks Reportedly Garnished
Atlanta, Georgia rapper Lil Scrappy is the latest former major label hit-maker dealing with financial woes. TMZ.com reports that while Scrappy has a high-profile role on VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” series, the former Warner Bros. Records artist owes a booking agency called Heavy Rotation an estimated $108,000. The 2010 debt has escalated with interest and penalties, and Scrappy, who was formerly affiliated with G-Unit and DTP Records, is now reported to have his VH1 pay garnished to satisfy what he owes. In late 2010, Scrappy and then live-in-girlfriend Diamond were said to be facing home foreclosure, when documents surfaced to reveal that they were late on rent payments. Scrappy has appeared on both seasons 1 and 2 of VH1’s reality show.
