Love and Hip Hop star Mimi Faust has gone through quite a bit over the past couple of years. She thought she had found love with a man named Nikko. She claims that he was treating her much better than her former cheating partner, Stevie J. But she got quite the surprise when Nikko revealed that his luggage had been stolen and their sex tape, which had been in the bag, was now on the internet. Mimi was shocked, but she believed him.
Mimi Faust may have a different view of the situation now, as she is starting to think that the entire thing was set up. Even while filming Love and Hip Hop, Mimi’s friends were asking her to be critical as she evaluated her relationship with Nikko, especially since she is the mother of a young daughter. But even with everything she has gone through, Faust has a supporter.
According to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report, Love and Hip Hop star Mimi Faust is getting full support from Claudia Jordan, who has just joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Claudia knows that the women on Bravo tend to make big deals out of smaller issues, but she feels that Faust’s situation is clearly one that tests how strong a person is.
“Y’all know I love my girl, Mimi Faust. She is the epitome of Survivor- mistakes and all! Heart of gold and will do anything for her friends. Please go on YouTube and check out her 3 part Moment Of Truth interview she gave to Egypt! It’s very telling and heartfelt! Thanks!” Claudia revealed after watching a few interviews with Faust, where she opens up about her mistakes.
In the interview, Mimi explains that she was kicked out when she was just 13 years old, because she wouldn’t follow the Church of Scientology like her mother. Faust was forced to take care of herself from a very young age. Since she had no relationship with her biological father, she would look for love in all the wrong places.
Mimi said that the abandonment led her to “choose all the wrong men all the time.”
And it sounds like Faust may have learned her lesson with Nikko, who used her to get fame by selling one of their sex tapes. She admits that the entire relationship was wrong for her.
“I think he used me to get to where he wanted to be. I think he wanted to get his music out; he wanted to get his brand out there; he wanted to get himself out there and I was the platform to get him to where he wanted to be,” Mimi explains, adding that she has no concrete proof that he leaked the tape to Vivid Entertainment.
According to the Inquisitr, the sex tape has made financial sense to Faust. The tape hit record-high sales, and even beat out Kim Kardashian’s sex tape.
