Reality Star Erica Dixon Accused Lil Scrappy Of Attacking Her; Final Protective Order May Nix Rapper’s Chances Of Getting Custody Of Daughter
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Erica Dixon is making her baby daddy Lil Scrappy pay for his alleged attacks on her.
A judge Wednesday signed a “family violence” protective order, barring Lil Scrappy from being within 100 yards of Dixon for the next year after she told the court he assaulted her as they filmed Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.
Under the order, Dixon got temporary custody of their daughter, Emani, 10, and Scrappy, who was born Darryl Richardson, has to enroll in a “family violence intervention program” within the next three weeks.
Dixon said in court papers seeking the protective order that her child’s father “aggressively attempted to attack me and had to be restrained on several occasions. During a scheduled work related filming, the respondent became enraged during a conversation while attempting to attack me and further throwing an object at me.”
The reality starlet told the judge that she’s scared of what Scrappy might do.
“Although we meet to exchange custody of our daughter, I am extremely uncomfortable doing so after his erratic behavior,” Dixon said in court papers, adding that she believes Scrappy will hurt her if he finds out her new address.
The couple is also in the midst of a child custody battle, with Dixon asking that the court award her sole custody of Emani and require Scrappy to have a court-approved monitor in order to spend time with the girl. Dixon also wants Scrappy to get tested for drugs and alcohol and go to rehab.
Scrappy said in his own custody filing that Emani lived with him for the last two years and was scared of Dixon. He said Dixon has dissed him in front of the girl, often won’t let him speak to her when she has her and has refused to co-parent with him.
A Georgia Superior Court judge is set to rule on changing their child custody agreement next week.
