This new season of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” has so far crowned Ms. Tommie Lee as the breakout star.
The controversial cast member, who broke the internet with her alleged 31 mugshots, recently sat down with VH1 to clear the air on which of the “31” mugshots are actually hers and which are not.
Some of them are, some of them ain’t,” said Tommie. “I was dying laughing like, you just see question marks on that one mugshot. That b—- looked like she been drugged. Some of them sh–s is not even me.
Half the time I’ve been on probation without going to prison. Half the time I was put on probation but I was still a badass.
I still would violate probation. I wouldn’t do community service so guess that you get booked again and you got a whole new mugshot.
People act like I’m just a rel criminal out here. I’m not denying any of the s–t that I did but that’s not the life I live right now.”
How many children do you actually have?
“I have two daughters, said Tommie. One is 12 and the other is 9. They done been everywhere. Every f— Christmas we go to aspen to make sure they have a white Christmas. These kids have been to Disney world, Disneyland in LA. They done been all over. They could tell you sh that adult can’t. That’s my only thing that’s going to get to me. When motherf—ers talk about my kids.”
Tommie also revealed that she gave birth to one of her daughters while incarcerated.
“Well, one day I was sitting in jail just leaking and I pressed the button like, ‘please somebody, can I get checked?’ said Tommie. You know it’s hard to get medical attention in jail. Then they said if you press the button again you’re getting locked down.
So when it was our time to get out, I called my mom and I was like “ma, some s—t is coming out and it’s just coming out every day.” Then the jail said if I press the button I’m going to get locked down. My mom was like, “Pee on yourself right now.”
So, I pissed on myself. When I did, the whole floor was going crazy.
Everyone was screaming “We ’bout to have a baby!” So then they took my to the hospital and it was no fluid around my baby. I had to have an emergency C-section.
Yea, that saved my daughter.
I wasn’t cuffed to the bed. The police were really nice. They let my family come in so it wasn’t like a horrible transition. Then I had to go back to the jail and they rushed me to court. The judge went off. He was so f—ing mad! I’ll never forget it.
On what she does for a living:
“Oh I do Tommie s—t, baby, I’m an entrepreneur,” said Tommie. “Right now I’m working with multiple sources of income. I put up money for shows. We just booked Future in the Bay. So I put in a lot of money with my promoter friend and that’s what we do. We split everything down the middle.
Mo betta mo cheddar. We have houses and s–t around here that we own and we fix up to help college students out and stuff like that, kinda like a dorm. We have like five houses right now in the city of Atlanta.
A lot of people that go to Clark [University] and Morehouse stay there. It’s fully furnished. You move in and you just pay your half of your room. It’s been going real good.
Then I started taking more money and flipping it again with him on the promoting side of things and getting these artists. We booked Meek Mill for the fight in Vegas. That was real big. That was the most money we ever put into somebody, like $180,000. It was a good turnout. Right now social media is eating me up.
It’s kinda like a weight off my shoulders so I can go on to positive s–t so I can go on and change me life. There’s no turning back now.”
On her kids not being on Instagram:
“My two daughters live with me. I don’t have a teenage daughter. I have a teenage little sister and a next door neighbor that I also take care of. Her mother passed. I love the kids. The only thing is I wish is that I didn’t take them off my Instagram because that really hurt me. My manager thought it would be a great idea to take my kids down so people don’t come after them.”
On her real name:
My real name is Latisha Jefferson. Tommie is my actual stage name. It was the nickname that I was called as a kid for being a tomboy. They called me Tommie or Tomboy so yea, that’s my stage name.
Tommie eventually took to Instagram to blast The Breakfast Club and Charlamagne Tha God for ridiculing her over her troubled past.
We respect Tommie for her realness, and actually like her.
