Benzino and Althea

According to a source, producer Mona Scott-Young shed a couple of dead weights to make room for rapper Da Brat and her girlfriend on popular reality TV series Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.

Da Brat

Frustrated by the sudden loss of his financial security, Benzino lashed out at a well-known blogger on last night. The 50-year-old wannabe rapper was spotted standing in line at the unemployment office in downtown Atlanta today.

From TMZ via

Production sources tell us the couple was given the boot Wednesday AM … with no explanation.

Benzino says it’s obvious he and Althea are being blamed for the fight between them and castmates Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J … a brawl that proved irresistible for other cast members.

TMZ broke the story … Althea sued Joseline, claiming she started the fight while she was high on crack.

Although Althea got her ass whooped … producers sided with Joseline, even though other castmates felt Joseline should have gotten the boot.

VH1 wouldn’t comment, but it’s pretty obvious. Joseline’s better TV, and that trumps everything.

Update: Da Brat responded on
