During the season opener, Diamond, a former member of Atlanta rap group Crime Mob, made note of the issues she had in the past with Scrappy and his mother.
Her claims included abuse, infidelity and theft. Specifically, Diamond says Scrappy's mother, who goes by Momma Dee, stole her clothes and jewelry.

We wish Diamond well in all her future endeavors."
