Are Erica and Lil Scrappy engaged? Rumors and reports have been popping up all over the urban gossip blogs suggesting that Lil Scrappy and Erica are engaged, back together, and days before walking down the aisle. Although we recently spoke to a source who denied that Lil Scrappy proposed to Erica at the Reunion show, we also got an email from another person who stated that Erica and Lil Scrappy never broke up. In fact, this person even suggested that the couple faked their entire break up for the cameras, and Shay Buckeey Johnson was paid to pretend to cause drama for them as Lil Scrappy and Erica worked on rebuilding their “broken” relationship. The same source even said that Shay Johnson has a photographer boyfriend and hasn’t dated Lil Scrappy since 2011, after he and Diamond broke up. This report sounds more plausible since Erica and Lil Scrappy were caught doing a photo shoot together, where Erica was photo’d wearing an engagement ring. We’re thinking people in the Love and Hip Hop Atlanta camp are denying the proposal due to contractual agreements and to keep the Reunion show full of surprises. But at this point, it’s clear that Lil Scrappy and Erica are together.
As usual, both Erica and Lil Scrappy spill a little too much tea on themselves on their Twitter accounts. After reports broke that Lil Scrappy and Erica did a photo shoot with Rolling Out Magazine as newly engaged couple, both Erica and Lil Scrappy initially played coy about the engagement in their tweets. However, Erica might have accidently confirmed the reports that the storyline for Lil Scrappy and Erica was scripted, and that she and Lil Scrappy never broke up and were together throughout the entire taping of the show.
Peep Erica’s suspect tweet:
In addition to that tweet, Erica and Lil Scrappy have been spotted together and even photo’d together in Atlanta. And both are acting very much like a couple. I think the more and more things come out about Erica and Lil Scrappy, it’s very plausible that our reader was right when she said that the break up was scripted, and Shay was nothing more than an ex girlfriend paid to keep these two from being kicked off the show.
