Melody Holt and Destiny Payton had a controversial fallout.

Love & Marriage: Huntsville” returns in September. However, the drama between the cast members has not slowed down during the midseason hiatus. In fact, Melody Holt and Martell Holt have been in the headlines due to their custody battle. During an interview weeks ago, Melody revealed that Martell sued her for full custody. So it put a hold on her being able to change her name. Some LAMH fans were upset about this. So they created a petition urging Martell to be fired from the show. And they have accused him of being emotionally abusive. So far the petition has amassed thousands of signatures. However, considering Carlos King’s past comments, it doesn’t appear as if Martell will ever be fired from the show.

Interestingly enough, Martell isn’t Melody’s only source of tension these days. She’s also not on the best of terms with Destiny Payton. Destiny accused Melody of going cold on her after they wrapped up filming Season 3. However, Melody showed that they never stopped communicating through text messages. So she wasn’t here for Destiny questioning their friendship at the reunion. Then, of course, Melody wasn’t okay with people calling her a bad friend when she loaned Destiny thousands of dollars to pay her bills and divorce attorney fees.

Well, Destiny recently caused a stir with fans after she made some interesting comments on Instagram Live. She defended Martell amid backlash for his new wine business. And she seemingly insinuated that she believes Melody is fake and she’s tired of the comparisons.

  1. I don’t understand how Melody is fake when she has shared more about her life than Destiny has. Truth be told, LAMH wouldn’t even still be on TV now if it wasn’t for Melody and Martell’s choice to be authentic. LAMH wouldn’t even have made it to season 2. Those two are the reasons anyone even watches and the DC show happened.

    1. “I don’t understand how Melody is fake when she has shared more about her life than Destiny has.”

      Thank you!

    2. Destiny you need to 🛑 STOP. You are not liked. Melody make the whole Cast look STUPID. Can you see WHY all the Women surrendering themselves around Martell as well as yourself like Flies on Do Do cuz he was a MAN with Melody and all you Loose Un Marriage Women wants what Melody has. You head a BABY but we know you needed that 😜 to make your Story Line. You are TEAM Martell and we are know WHY. Destiny you need to STOP using the Black Card ♠️♦️ just do your JOBS

  2. Very anti-black comments from Destiny on the black business side. Suggesting that black people can’t properly create and run businesses without being raggedy is rooted in racism and anti-blackness narratives. Black people can and do create and run businesses efficiently. I do it, Melody does it, and Stormi does it. The problem is Martell has no idea what he is doing. Instead of enabling him, get him in touch with someone who can help. Do not expect black people to tolerate bad business practices because we’re black. I’ve never had an Amazon package be late. However, Amazon does have policies in place for late, damaged, and stolen packages. What are Martell’s policies for disgruntled customers? No one should have to stay on him to get the items they paid for. That’s unprofessional. And inconsiderate.

  3. Destiny acts like a pick me and I’m over it. She defends Martell all day long but has higher standards for the women she’s friends with. I don’t care for women like that.

  4. Is Destiny out of her mind? People work had as f-ck for our money. When we buy something online, we expect it to make it to our house in a timely manner and good condition. If you can’t do that, then don’t start a business. I’m tired of everyone including our own expecting us to have low standards about how we’re treated just because we’re Black. If you want a successful business, run it like you have some sense. D-mn.

  5. Destiny sounds jealous. Honestly a good bit of that cast is jealous of Melody and it’s pathetic. When someone is successful, study what they do and tailor it to make your own lane. She’s too busy shading Melody and defending Martell when she has her own business to run. Imagine caring about mess more than your own business. Makes no sense.

    1. DESTINY IS JEALOUS AND BITTER! I REMEMBER WHEN DESTINY DIDN’T LIKE KIMMY, TISHIA, NOR TIFFANY!!! IT SEEMS LIKE HATRED AND JEALOUSY OF MELODY COMBINED THE FRIENDSHIP OF LAMH CAST! THE SCOTTS TURNED ON HER FOR NOT BEING A PART OF THE COMEBACK GROUP, AND DESTINY GOT MAD AFTER SHE COULD NO LONGER GET MONEY WITHOUT EVER PAYING HER BACK. IT SEEMS DESTINY KEEP FUELING THE FIRE OF HATRED AND JEALOUSY TOWARDS MELODY AND MARTELL’S FUELED BECAUSE HE CANT LURE MELODY BACK! A BUNCH OF HYPOCRITES!!! SMH

  6. Destiny should have never lied about not hearing from Melody. Melody was there for her. She really doesn’t have a storyline without Melody or Martell. She lied about getting a ppp. She’s really just a liar

  7. Hate and jealousy will block your blessings. When you learn how to be happy for people and focus on yourself, that’s when the blessings start to pour in. Destiny needs to do better. I miss the confident and loyal friend and boss she used to be on the show.

  8. That “give me grace because I’m a black business owner” mindset is a guaranteed way to not stay in business very long. No one cares. They expect great customer service regardless. Martell better straighten up before the Better Business Bureau gets involved.

  9. Sigh…I am so disappointed in Destiny. She threw a genuine friendship away for absolutely no reason and her loyalty to Martell will never be reciprocated. Notice how he wasn’t trying to help her pay her bills like Melody did.

  10. Melody is not a nice person. She seems stuck up. I can understand why DESTINY feel like. Melody fans need to get over themselves. 🙄

  11. It’s so funny to see Destiny so mad and pressed that Melody has so many fans who love her. All it does is make us support her more. I appreciate that Melody spends time on her socials talking about God, entrepreneurship, manifestation, and how to pray. It’s always good vibes when I watch her lives. It’s unfortunate that she gave Destiny all that money and support and it still wasn’t good enough. That’s how I know Destiny was never a real friend. And that’s okay because Melody’s life has been better since she left Destiny and Martell alone. Cut the deadweight in your life and you will prosper. Keep your head up Melody. We love you! You’re beautiful, successful, smart, and kind even to those who don’t appreciate it. But that’s okay because God continues to favor you. 💕

  12. Melody is a confident and gorgeous woman so she’s going to have haters. I can understand why she now only sees these people as coworkers. The jealousy is crazy. I feel bad for the people who bought Martell’s wine. He should treat his customers better. Melody took her products with her when she went out of town so they would be shipped to her customers on time. You have to go above and beyond when you own a business. No excuses.

  13. The day Melody leaves this show is when my desire to watch it will die. I love black women who are bosses. They inspire me. Stormi is very impressive as well.

  14. I don’t even understand why Destiny is on the show. She has had no storyline since she has been on the show. Just because you dating Letisha’s/ Wanda’s family member you started hating on Mel. She has been more of a friend to you than you, to her. She stopped fooling with your ex.

  15. I think Destiny needs to educate herself more on business. She doesn’t have the right mentality and I believe that’s why she’s been having so many problems with her beauty supply store. No one who wants their business to succeed and expand has this viewpoint. You can’t sustain any business with unprofessional practices. Customers shouldn’t have to DM someone 100 times to get what they paid for shipped to their house. They shouldn’t have to DM at all. Once payment goes through, the shipping process is supposed to begin the next couple of business days. Amazon wouldn’t be what it is today if they started off not actually sending people their packages on time. It would have folded the first couple of years. Jeff was in his garage getting those packages out. His work ethic and passion to succeed was evident. Read about him.

  16. Nah. Great customer service from day one will make any business a major success. It makes people want to continue to support your business. Destiny sounds silly here. I know Martell is her friend but this take ain’t it. Martell won’t be in business long if he doesn’t get it together.

  17. Why is Destiny on the show???? What storyline does she have besides Melody?!?!…She no longer have a husband because he left and didn’t want to be on the show in the first place…and I don’t see anything she’s doing!!!! I’m just sicka her!!! Just go SAT down somewhere and do something with yaself!!! And ain’t nobody FAKER that her azz!!!
