Mimi Faust Reveals Relationship Status with Nikko & Puts Joseline in Her Place
By: Taren Vaughan
Did Mimi Faust and Nikko break up? Mimi Faust became an instant reality TV star after joining the cast of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. And it took no time at all for the drama to start up for Mimi as it was revealed that her daughter’s father Stevie J. was doing more than putting down tracks in the studio with Joseline Hernandez. Though Mimi and Joseline have both had their separate relationships with Stevie, Mimi couldn’t escape the pesky rumor that she had a bedroom fling with Joseline and Stevie, a claim that Mimi said was a lie, Mimi Faust and Nikko breaking up being another piece of gossip surrounding her. In an interview that she did with StupidDOPE, Mimi talked about how she handles Joseline being disrespectful towards her and reveals her current status with Nikko.
Mimi was asked if her and Joseline ever run into each other off the set of the show and how she reacts when they do cross paths. While Mimi says she doesn’t say anything to Joseline when she sees her out in the streets, she says that Joseline is just as disrespectful towards her off camera as she is on camera. And as far as Joseline’s “Molly Maid” comments, Mimi thinks it’s all very silly as she does own her own business:
“I mean, it’s ridiculous. I’m an entrepreneur. I’m a business owner. I’m these things. The only thing that she runs is her lil’ nasty crotch! So, she’s just ridiculous calling me a maid. I make a living in owning business. I get checks. You running around… on your back. Stop it girl! She’s young and immature so we have to give her a pass sometimes.”
Before the second season kicked off, it was revealed that Mimi had a new man in her life, Nikko, who will be seen later on in the season. Yet whispers suggested that Mimi’s new found romance with Nikko was already over. Mimi says though that is not the case:
“Me and the new guy, yes. We’re still good. You know in any relationship you have your good days. Your bad days. You fuss and fight, so that happens. It happens in real life and it happens on camera.*laughs*”
On the subject of relationships, Mimi was asked about her friendship with K. Michelle and how she is able to maintain a bond with the singer as K. has gotten into it with the majority of their other cast mates. And she says that it’s because her and K.’s personalities are so different that they keep each other balanced. And she adds that prior to filming for the show, Ariane was the only cast mate that she actually knew and had a relationship with, although she knew Rasheeda and Kirk too. Though Mimi and K. Michelle have patched things up between them, Mimi admits that she was not happy with how K. behaved at her housewarming party:
“I’m just disgusted and in awe and everything you can possibly imagine. First of all, that was my new place, so not only are you throwing hot wax on Rasheeda, you’re throwing hot wax on my new furniture, my carpet. It was just… Who does that??? But you know K has a habit of picking up things and throwing them. That’s her ‘go to’ thing. I’m gonna pick somethin’ up and I’m gonna throw it.”
Mimi also talks about the things that she is trying to do outside of LHHATL:
“My aim is of course to expand. I’m also opening up a home accessory line that has to do with my cleaning business. I have a children’s apparel line that I’m working on right now. I have so many things on my table. That God for Love and Hip Hop because it opened so many doors for me. I’m so thankful. I could go on and on. I have so many things on the table, I don’t wanna tell you about EVERYTHING but, oh my God. It’s been an amazing ride.”
Mimi isn’t fazed by Joseline’s “maid” comments and won’t pass up the chance to remind Joseline that she is getting a cut of the money she is making as Stevie’s artist either.
Joseline uploaded a picture to her Instagram account of a handbag that Stevie bought her with the caption:
“Thanks Daddy for getting me my new @louistewart I love Her!!!”
To put Joseline in her place, Mimi uploaded a photo of her holding a similar bag full of cash to her account with a caption of her own:
“Thanks for making that money for daddy so he can bring it to momma! #LHHATL”
