Maurice Scott and Kimmi Scott have been having disagreements over co-parenting.
“Love & Marriage: Huntsville” star Maurice Scott is currently receiving a lot of backlash on social media. During the recent episode, he had a very controversial conversation with Kimmi Scott. He, Kimmi, and Kiuwha Scott-Bonds had a sitdown to discuss Monster. He’s been struggling. In fact, he’s not really interested in his schoolwork or doing any of the house chores he’s been told to do. Maurice wants Kimmi to feel more comfortable when it comes to disciplining Monster. However, Kimmi thinks that the real issue is Maurice may not be spending enough time with Monster. So she has encouraged him to be more hands-on while she’s supportive as a step-parent.
Interestingly enough, Maurice said he felt like another issue is Kiuwha may have spoiled Monster while he lived with her and her husband. So Monster doesn’t really know how to do chores and be responsible.
Kiuwha eventually had a solo conversation with Monster to get to the bottom of things. He admitted that he doesn’t feel comfortable sharing his feelings with Maurice or Kimmi. So he prefers to talk to himself when he’s going through stressful situations. His face lit up after Kiuwha told him that she will start coming to Huntsville a lot more to spend time with him.
Some LAMH fans feel like Maurice has been a bit demanding and selfish while Kimmi has been fighting cancer. At the end of the recent episode, Kimmi and Maurice had a tense conversation. And he didn’t like it when Kimmi suggested that he and Kiuwha have their own therapy session with Monster. Kimmi’s reasoning was Monster may feel more comfortable opening up if he’s in therapy with only his biological parents.
So Maurice responded by suggesting that Kimmi has a one-on-one conversation with Kiuwha to hash out their issues. In response, Kimmi said they don’t have an issue and the tension they had is in the past.
Maurice then accused Kimmi of not really being over it and Kimmi demanded that Maurice specifically tells her what he thinks that issue was before the episode ended on a cliffhanger.

Maurice Scott thinks it is admirable that Kimmi Scott put his needs first during her cancer battle.
LAMH viewers accused Maurice of being passive-aggressive and gaslighting Kimmi during that scene. They were also critical of Maurice after Kimmi told a friend she faked “the Big O” on multiple occasions because she didn’t want Maurice looking for pleasure elsewhere while she was battling cancer.
Well, Carlos King asked Maurice about this during a recent interview. He said, “Are you that much of a sexual person to where despite what she’s going through right now, you still feel like there’s a happy medium in terms of her pleasuring you?”
Maurice answered, “There’s a difference between wants and needs. And I’m a person who actually needs sex not a person who wants sex. Now at times, I want it but I actually need it. Life throws us curveballs like what we’re going through right now. What Kimmi is doing is admirable as a spouse. To roll over and suffer through it, fakes it all for me because at that moment is something she completely didn’t desire. I look at it as her standing by me while I’m standing by her.”
He continued, “As difficult as it may seem, we should all feel that we would be better people and say, ‘Oh no, I don’t want or need sex for however long it takes for you to recover,’ but we then live in reality where that’s not true.”
Carlos later asked Maurice just how badly he needs sex, and Maurice responded with some fun shade.
“I need *** like Carlos needs mess.”
