It looks like one Love & Hip Hop Atlanta couple has kissed and made up. On Thursday, news of an engagement between Lil Scrappy and Bambi Benson started making rounds. It looks like the LHHATL stars aren’t talking about a possible engagement but everyone around them is buzzing.
After years of on-again, off-again dating, Lil Scrappy dropped down on one knee and asked Bambi to marry him. This was a bit surprising for Love & Hip Hop Atlanta fans, who have watched the couple argue and fight after they were supposedly broken up. Scrappy even debuted a new girl, but then ended up dumping Betty Idol pretty quickly after Bambi said something about it.
It was Bambi’s BFF, Tammy Rivera, who initially broke the engagement news. Tammy posted a picture of Bambi holding Scrappy’s hand while modeling her huge new ring. The post has since been deleted but not before plenty of screenshots were taken.

Bambi’s cousin also posted a picture on Instagram that proved Lil Scrappy proposed to Bambi recently. That @Goonzwitdiamonds account has since been made private, but according to VH1, not before a picture of Lil Scrappy down on bended knee was posted and screenshotted for everyone to see. The caption said, “I WAS SUPPOSE TO BE THERE @reallilscrappy you gotta do it over for me!!!!! @adizthebam I Looooove you guys so much Betta keep my cousin Happy foEvvvvvvvvaaa.”
Neither Scrappy or Bambi have confirmed their engagement yet. It’s pretty obvious that the LHHATL couple is back on. On Thursday, Bambi posted a video to Instagram of herself and Scrappy getting ready to eat together. Just a few hours before that, he posted a photo of the happy couple hamming it up in the car.
Many Love & Hip Hop Atlanta fans are wondering how this will all play out on the current season. Right now, Scrappy is supposed to be living the bachelor life in the apartment he shares with Yung Joc. It looks like the bachelor life is over but who is moving where?

News of Bambi and Scrappy’s engagement comes just days after his baby mama, Erica Dixon, responded to a dig that Bambi took on the most recent episode of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. While on a blind date with Tammy Rivera, Wocka Flocka, and his good friend, Chaz, Bambi learned that her romantic hopeful had kids. She asked about baby mama drama and then commented that she’s had plenty of that already and doesn’t want any more. That’s when Bambi commented that if she hadn’t liked the kid, she would have popped the mama.
Bambi didn’t call Erica Dixon out by name, but it was pretty obvious who she was talking about since Lil Scrappy is all she seems to have on her mind. Erica doesn’t seem to appreciate anyone bringing her up now that she’s no longer on the show and she quickly responded to Bambi’s diss.

When one fan tweeted at Erica and asked when she’d be back, apparently to confront Bambi about what she said, Erica replied, “Tuh, I’m waiting.” While Dixon has hinted around at having other TV projects, it doesn’t look like she’s in a hurry to run back to Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.
Now fans are wondering if Lil Scrappy and Bambi will last this time around. The couple have split up and got back together more times than anyone but Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J. Do you think the LHHATL couple will make it to the altar and beyond, or will they call off the engagement and split up?
