Tensions fan high during the Season 4 reunion special of the VH1 reality show “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta.” Rapper Lil’ Scrappy and his ex-girlfriend, Erica Dixon, have been involved in a custody battle for their daughter, Emani Richardson. Naturally, things between the former couple weren’t pretty, and Scrappy’s current girlfriend, who is known by the mononym Bambi, added to the drama.
When Scrappy called Dixon a bad mother, Twitter users came to her defense.

Scrappy didn't have to go in on Erica like that. She's the mother of your daughter. #LHHReunion

Nobody is doubting he takes care of Emani. Erica said he's a great dad but he needs to pay that COURT ORDERED CHILD SUPPORT. #LHHATLReunion

Scrappy, however, maintained that he is a good father after Dixon claimed he owed $46,000. "I'm a full-time dad. I'm not no weekend dad. When the mom come tell me, you take care of the money when she's with you... if I ever needed some, I'll hit you and one day she come back and be like, 'You need to be paying me $40,000' and you'd be like, 'how is that possible?'" he said.
Scrappy said problems arose when Dixon said she wanted $5,000 a month in child support. He said they had agreed to $2,000. Dixon also claimed that Scrappy did not show up for Emani’s orthodontist appointment when she got her braces.
Scrappy’s mother, who is known on the show as Momma Dee, supported her son. "Listen, my son is the best dad I wish I had. I had a dad like my son [because] maybe I'd been a better person,” she said.
While Dixon said that Bambi is “irrelevant” to her, Scrappy’s girlfriend took some swings at his ex. She apparently called her “Wesley snipes” and shaded her hair:
I can't believe Bambi said Erica had nappy hair when she has a Trump comeover. Did she also call Erica, Wesley Snipes? #LHHATL

After Bambi’s insults, Twitter users generally sided with Dixon:
Erica just need to whoop Bambi
