While Diamond doesn’t appear on VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta,” the Best Female Hip Hop Artist BET Award nominee sure gets her name thrown around a lot on the show. Lil Scrappy has openly talked about how Diamond broke his heart, and his overprotective mother Momma Dee has also had some disparaging remarks.
“I wish everybody the best. I feel like only one person can judge me, and that’s God,” Diamond told MTV News on Sunday on the BET Awards red carpet , hand-in-hand with her current boyfriend, Soulja Boy. “That’s my past. I’m in the future right now, and I wish everybody the best.”
Things began to heat up last year when it was revealed that Diamond was dating Soulja Boy. It’s unclear whether she cheated on Scrappy or if her relationship with the “Turn My Swag On” rapper came after, but whatever the case, Scrap feels slighted. Scrappy said he helped Diamond get her rap career on track, putting her needs before his own, and after their breakup, he felt used. “When that Diamond situation happened, it just taught me a real valuable lesson, ’cause I know, as I can see, I’m not a good judge of character,” Lil Scrappy said when he appeared on June 20’s “RapFix Live.”
“I ain’t never had my little heart broken before, but now that it happened, I don’t think it would happen for a long time,” he said. “But the good side about that is, you don’t put nobody before God, don’t ever put nobody before God, and I think I did a little bit of that trying to help her.”
Scrap said he has no beef with Soulja Boy, and SB is also taking the high road. “This is my baby, this is my girl, so anything said about her is basically they’re saying it about me,” he said, holding Diamond’s hand. “I’m backin’ her 100 percent, and we’re just focusing on the positive. Anybody talkin’ about her name on TV, that’s just bringin’ us up more. So salute to them, we wish them the best.”
