To say Lil Scrappy and Erica Dixon‘s relationship has had it’s ups and down is a major understatement. We know that Scrappy left Erica for Diamond then came crawling back when Diamond left Lil Scrappy for Soulja Boy.
We watched as Erica and Lil Scrappy tried to work out their relationship on “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” and it seemed to crumble once again right before our eyes every Monday night. Then, a huge distraction by the name of Shay Johnson dominated Lil Scrappy’s attention making it easier for him to move on and leave Erica in his past.
After some self-reflection and looking at his child support balance, Scrappy made a move at the reunion show that shocked everyone. He proposed to Erica.
While everyone has to remain tight-lipped to avoid ruining the reunion show before it airs, Rolling Out magazine has the details of how the entire proposal went down. Read it below.
After Shay and Erica had a nonstop verbal altercation on the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” reunion program — to the point where Shay had to be carried off the set several times to prevent the two from fighting — Scrappy finally interceded and took control of the set. In the best way he knew how, he said that he loved the time (and sex) that he and Shay shared together but that he felt there was no long-term future between them.
Irate and brokenhearted that she had to find out that they were no longer lovers, Shay immediately began to tear up and screamed, “Then you need to take the stuff out of my name and put them in her name,” which drew loud choruses of oohs and aahs from the audience.
Scrappy then turned his attention to Erica. But as the hard reality of the situation settled in Shay’s mind, she suddenly cried out, “I can’t believe you did me like this,” and stormed off the set sobbing, never to reappear.
Scrappy didn’t seem too bothered by it at all. He addressed his mother, pleading for her to give Erica Dixon a chance. Erica, for her part, admitted that she had been holding a lot of her feelings back from him for fear of rejection and more hurt. Then, as if on cue, when Scrappy’s mother said that he needed to make that move to solidify the relationship between him and Erica, Scrappy reached into his right pocket and the audience let out a cacophony of gasps and screams.
When Scrappy turned toward Erica and got on one knee, the high-pitched screeches were so deafening, they could have stopped birds in mid-flight.
Scrappy asked for Erica’s hand in marriage as he slipped the ring on her finger. Both Erica and members of the audience were in tears at the total change of pace from relentless on-set fighting and arguing to one of affection and love.
Erica and her baby daddy/fiance Lil Scrappy recently had a cover shoot for Rolling Out magazine. Check out some of the behind-the-scenes photos below.
We wish Lil Scrappy and Erica the best. ♥
