Lil Scrappy and Dee’s mother was the trending topic Monday through Tuesday for their fiery confrontation during the show’s season finale – which was filmed in April.
The duo went head-to-head at a casting event after a heated phone conversation about Momma Dee telling everyone her son wanted a divorce. And Scrappy was not lenient with the queen. Instead, he admitted to giving her a “well-deserved” scolding.
“Yes, I kicked my mother out, you know what I’m talking about. Man, [she] worthy. I feel like Duchess Momma deserves it. I mean, she’s always messing with me and Bam, but at some point, that’s enough,” Scrappy shared. “You know this isn’t normal, just like normal mothers don’t do this. And after this, that’s going to be a really big line because I come from a broken family, and I’m trying to break the generational curse. “

Momma Dee and Scrappy argue it out in public
The heated exchange began after Momma Dee pulled Scrappy aside at an event for Spice’s Grammy nomination. He tells her that she hurts him every day when she says “lie” or things he didn’t say. Dee’s mother spoke with the tone and words he used with her in their phone conversation.
Scrappy alleges his behavior was no worse than what Dee experienced as a child. He describes a “difficult” parenting process.
My mom is a pimp, so me and my sister were raised around whores and crack pipes and this is what you see, this is what you find,” Scrappy said. gunshots are being fired. I think it is normal.
He warned his mother that she shouldn’t “Never try to manipulate every situation that f**k [his] children up,” – refer to divorce rumors. But, later, Scrappy shut her down when she had the right to speak on his behalf as his mother.
“You don’t tell my truth, you tell your own damn truth,” Lil Scrappy told Dee. “You don’t even know all my facts.”
He walks away and later tells Dee that she is a “strange mother” and a “strange person.” Bambi tried to calm her agitated husband, but the mother and daughter continued to exchange heated words from across the room.
“I didn’t do that to you. I’m not talking your mother’s king business,” said Lil Scrappy. “I don’t go out into the street and tell people who you really are.”
Overwhelmed, Scrap punches a cluster of nearby helium balloons. When Shekinah Anderson tries to encourage Momma Dee to calm down a “hurt” Scrappy, Dee counters that she’s hurt too. That caused Scrappy to burst across the room toward his mother.
“Are you hurt? Blame your mom, blame it on your dad! I didn’t do anything to you.” When Momma Dee interjected, saying she did the best she could, Scrap countered. back, “I’m your mother’s son**.”

Momma Dee Doesn’t Give Up: “I’m Not A Mess”
In a confession video, Momma Dee holds her ground when it comes to information she allegedly obtained from Scrap.
“Everybody on the team felt that it was my fault to tell Scrappy my business, but when it comes to my son, I say what I want, and if it’s a lie,” Momma Dee said. Guess what? It came out of Scrappy’s mouth. I’m just saying, I’m not messing around. “
In the form of Momma Dee, she tells her son’s wife and friends that she’s 58 years old, pays the bills, and can talk to anyone she wants. Bambi accused her of wanting to be “a socialite” rather than a mother to her son.
In the end, Scrappy rejoined his mother, calm and collected, and explained his point of view.
“My mother is my mother. This is my wife. I wouldn’t have anyone if you weren’t with me,” Scrappy told Momma Dee and Bambi. “I have no one. F**k all that’s saying sh*t, I need you all to show me. “
He then gives his full attention to Dee, warning her that she should support their marriage, not split.
“You have to stop because you don’t have one, which will make you support this more because you know I want someone. Like, I love this, all this stuff,” Scrappy said, gesturing to Bambi.
Scrappy opens up about his childhood condition
Now emotional again, he describes his upbringing and his sense of normalcy.
“I have seen your lifestyle, I grew up in a whorehouse. I grew up in a trap house, so that’s all I know. And I love you because you kept it down, you did what you had to do. But imagine… you never had to sleep with your mom 24/7 because you couldn’t get into your room,” says Scrap. “You never have to step into assholes doing dope. The way I was raised, I had to deal with that. All that happened, I had to deal with and I’m still working on it because no one came to take me away and not help me. I learned about that as I got older. This is real, this has been in my head all my life. “
Finally, Scrappy thanked his mother for helping him succeed in his rap career and expressed his love for BOTH the women in his life.
“I can’t even go to [Bambi], she is hard. I can not go with you, you hard. So I’m on concrete by my f**king self. He added, “And I’m not going to take anything from you because you put me there. You put money in my sh*t. You gave me sh*t to help with my rap career and all that. No one does it but you. So I love my mother and I love my wife.”
