Jessica Dime is the latest Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star to be wrapped up in a sex tape scandal, as an explicit video of the reality television star reportedly hit the internet this week.
The video allegedly shows the new cast member along with a rapper/producer from Memphis named Lody Lucci (who goes by Lil Lody). It’s not clear exactly when the video was filmed, but Gossip on This reported that Lucci made it some time ago and “he’s been keeping the video on ice ever since, waiting for the right moment to ‘expose’ the stripper turned reality star.”
That moment could be a new high-profile relationship for Jessica Dime. She recently started dating NBA player Shawne Williams, and the report claims that Williams left his wife to be with Jessica D.
Gossip on This did not post the video itself and noted that some censored screenshots do not reveal the face of the woman featured in it. The person did have a tattoo similar to one that Jessica Dime has, but the report could not verify whether the sex tape actually showed the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star.
The alleged video has caused a stir online, going viral on social media including hundreds of posts to Twitter about the scandal.
Jessica Dime isn’t the only one in trouble in her relationship. Last December, Shawne Williams was arrested for DUI and leaving the scene of an accident after what police said was an incident of road rage in Memphis.
As WREG noted, Williams allegedly had two small children in his vehicle when the crash took place.
“Former University of Memphis basketball player Shawne Williams is accused of leaving the scene of the accident.
“When he came back about 20 minutes later, police said Williams pulled his pants down and said ‘I’m going to look the way y’all want me to look,’ according to police documents.”
It’s not clear if Jessica Dime was aware of the sex tape or its release, but she now becomes the third member of the VH1 reality show to be featured in an explicit video leaked to the internet.
Back in October, fellow Love & Hip Hop star Moniece Slaughter had her own sex tape leak, which became a major plot line on the show. As the International Business Times noted, Slaughter threatened to sue anyone who leaked the video. The video does not appear to have hit the internet yet, but Slaughter’s threats of legal action remain.
“Each and every person sitting in that room is going to regret it,” she wrote. “Beg for forgiveness, never! Outsmart you, always… #countdowntocourt.”
And two years ago, Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star Princess Love was surrounded by rumors that her own sex tape was about to hit the internet. The rumors came amid a split with singer Ray J, one so bitter that TMZ reported Princess Love actually tried to make off with the couple’s dog, Boogati. Ray J reportedly stepped in to stop her and keep his dog.
There has been some doubt about whether the Love & Hip Hop sex tape scandals are genuine or are played up a bit by producers to get people talking about a show that seems to feed off of real-life drama. The show thrives off feuds between cast members and even pulls from real life tragedies, like the recent death of the brother of Nikki Mudarris.
“My brother Omar passed away about a year ago from a drug overdose and it’s been really hard on my family,” she said (via Wetpaint).
For her part, Jessica Dime does not appear to have responded publicly to her alleged sex tape.
