Milan Christopher won’t be appearing on the new season of VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood,” and the model/rapper is not happy about it. Milan, who joined the show in Season 2, insists he doesn’t know why the network fired him but new details have emerged revealing what may have led to his exit.
Sources told the Jasmine Brand that VH1 and producers initially wanted Milan to come back for Season 3 and even offered him a contract, but said things went south when Milan supposedly asked for a pay raise. “He wanted WAY more money and felt like he brought so much to the show,” the source said. “Milan felt like he was one of the bigger stars on the show and brought most of the ratings to Season 2. This should have been leverage for him, but it didn’t.”
According to the outlet, producers also thought Milan was being a “diva” during the reunion, and was difficult to work with. The source said everyone “bent over backwards” for him so he could “share his storyline and his side of what went down … with him and Miles [Brock].”
In an Instagram post Saturday, Milan addressed his exit encouraging fans to reach out to VH1, “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” and show creator Mona Scott Young about him not being asked back for the new season.
Just because Milan won’t be on the VH1 show this season, doesn’t mean the model is completely saying goodbye to reality TV. In March, he announced that he had teamed up with “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss and her husband, Todd Tucker, for a show about his dating life.
In addition to Milan not returning to “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood,” Amber Laura (aka Amber Hunter) and Miles Brock also aren’t coming back. Hazel-E announced in September she was quitting the show, and Omarion and Apryl Jones revealed in December that they were also leaving.
“Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” Season 3 premieres Monday, Aug. 15 at 8 p.m. EDT on VH1.
