Karlie Redd Blasts Her Ex, Lyfe Jennings
Life is weird — and so are some of our exes. Just ask Karlie Redd!
The Love & Hip Hop Atlanta veteran spilled all of the beans on her relationship with longtime bae Lyfe Jennings during a recent interview.
Reflecting on her first date with the R&B crooner, Karlie shares her suspicion Lyfe may have been “using” her for publicity.
“I’m telling you it was weird. He told me to get dressed and we had a f–king photoshoot in front of his car," she recalls. "He had a photographer. So that’s when you know like… wait, were you using me?”
She went on to detail the nature of some of their convos throughout their "open relationship," saying Lyfe had a “weirdo philosophy.”
“I didn’t even want to call him cause I would have conversations with him and when you talking to your man you wanna know how you’re doing, can I cook for you, can I help you with your businesses, can I help you grow? His s–t was … hey, I saw the atoms and the molecules today. Weirdo… weird–f–king-do!” she continued.
Karlie also speaks more about the botched proposal that literally made her hit the floor during Season 5 of L&HHATL.
“When you’re fake from the get-go you can’t even afford to buy … it wasn’t even a bubble gum ring. He’s a fake person so I expected a fake ring.”
On her multiple relationships and marriage proposals, Karlie reveals she tried to warn Benzino’s now estranged bae, Althea Heart, about her “sloppy seconds” before she got in too deep with the Hip Hop Weekly CEO.
“I got that good-good, that’s all I can say and I feel bad that I gave that good-good to Lyfe because he wasn’t 'bout s–t anyway and Benzino … I wasn’t ready for his crazy ass. He’s mental, he’s crazy.”
We’re sure we’ll be hearing more about Karlie and Lyfe’s tumultuous relationship on next week’s reunion special.
Part 2 of the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 5 reunion Monday, August 8 at 8 p.m. ET on VH1.
