Scrappy and Bambi’s Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta Journey
Bambi Benson came into Lil Scrappy’s life in season 3. Before that, he had a relationship with co-star and ex-fiancé Erica Dixon, with whom he shares a 17-year-old daughter named Emani Richardson. When Lil Scrappy and Bambi started dating, they could not comprehend how they felt for each other, which complicated things. Moreover, he kept returning to his ex-lover Erica from time to time, even while dating the latter.
When Bambi found out about Scrappy’s lingering feelings for Erica, she did not want to get into the middle of that and left. Surprisingly, he also wanted to be with her and gifted a puppy to her as a way of apologizing. Although Bambi initially hesitated and wanted Scrappy to sort his feelings clearly, the two got back together. Their hurdles concerning Erica reoccured a few times, which made their relationship unstable throughout their journey over the years.
Additionally, Bambi faced some challenges with Scrappy’s mother, Deborah Bryant, AKA “Momma Dee.” The latter constantly tried to create differences between the two and went back and forth in getting along with her son’s partner. Scrappy and Bambi went through several similar problems and even broke up a few times to focus on their careers.
Moreover, Bambi went on to date another guy while being broken up with Scrappy as she felt he did not make as much effort to support her career as she did for him.
