The first step to recovery is admitting that you have a problem. After failing a Georgia court-ordered drug test today, Lil Scrappy is revealing that he’s addicted to marijuana. TMZ reports that Scrappy’s urine test came back positive for the psychoactive drug. Scrappy’s lawyer, Mawuli Mel Davis, told TMZ that the “Love & Hop Hop” star will check into a rehab facility before his next court hearing in June after acknowledging that he’s indeed an addict.
This isn’t Scrap’s first problem with weed. Last month, Scrappy was in hot water with the court after failing to take a drug test and turning in what appeared to be a bad sample (or someone else’s) per TMZ.
Scrappy is also battling personal issues at home. This week on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, Scrappy and girlfriend Erica continued to fight after she accused him of infidelity. After finding questionable texts on his phone, Erica worried that Scrappy was regressing and cheating on her once again. She removed her engagement ring and said that she wanted to slow down their walk to the aisle. “Once you go looking for something, you’re gonna find it,” Scrappy affirmed, to which she responded,“I think we need a break.”
