“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Lil Scrappy is making headlines this weekend after reportedly getting into a heated argument with a hair salon he planned on having a birthday party at for his daughter.
According to reports, Scrappy accused the hair spot of racism after being turned for a pre-arranged celebration.
“Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Lil Scrappy says his daughter was left in tears Sunday afternoon … after a salon owner refused to serve his family because they’re black. Scrappy tells TMZ … he put a down payment on a little girls salon outside Atlanta for his daughter’s birthday party — but when he and baby mama Erica Dixon arrived 20 minutes late to their 2 1/2 hour appointment, the place wouldn’t let them in.

Local law enforcement eventually arrived to the scene and managed to get Scrappy a portion of his down payment.
When Scrappy complained, citing the down payment they already paid … he says the people running the place — who are white — allegedly told him they didn’t want to serve “you people.” Cops were called — because Scrappy didn’t want to leave without a refund on his down payment — but officers got him half the money … and the salon agreed to mail the rest, so he left.

Last year, an attorney for the rapper revealed Scrappy would have a mentor guide him through a drug addiction.
Lil’ Scrappy’s attorney, Mawuli Mel Davis, tells RumorFix, “We are proud of the decision he’s made and we have identified a mentor who will help him with his new life when he has completed the program.” Rev. Run, who says he’s battled drug addiction, even offered himself up for support for the rapper/reality star. Lil’ Scrappy is scheduled to be in rehab for 30 days. (RumorFix)
Prior to those remarks, Scrappy acknowledged he would sacrifice time away from his family to get cleaned up.
Atlanta rapper Lil’ Scrappy said Wednesday he is headed to rehab. The musician, whose real name is Darryl Richardson, has had several court appearances in recent months. A few weeks ago, he failed a court-ordered drug test. “It is my hope that my time away from my family and especially my little girl, my daughter, will make me a better man,” Richardson said. He said it’s time for him to get help for marijuana addiction. A judge has granted Richardson a continuance in his probation battle, giving him time to attend rehab. (WSBTV)
