Another LHHNY blind item!
Looks like love is in the air for one of the ladies from “Love & Hip-Hop NY!” BOSSIP sources tell us that a romance is heating up between WWE and Japan Pro wrestling champ “MVP,” also known as Antonio Banks, also known as Montel Vontavious Porter also known as Hassan Amin Assad.
The lady in question was pretty unlucky in love during her debut season on reality TV, but our sources say this new relationship is a real spiritual match. After watching homegirl catch fade on TV it should be refreshing to see her catch feelings instead.
Think you know who she is?
Hit the flip for the answer.
Our BOSSIP spies tell us Raqi Thunda enjoyed a visit with her new wrassler boo thang Montel Vontavious Porter over the weekend while he was in town for his Wrestlemania Hall of Fame induction. The pair were seen at Caroline’s comedy club where Hot 97 Morning Show co-host Peter Rosenberg was emceeing. At one point Rosenberg was joined onstage by MVP and the gentlemen called Raqi to the stage for a hug and kiss.
Like Raqi, MVP also has roots in Islam, having converted during a nearly decade-long prison sentence (after being convicted for armed robbery/kidnapping at only 16-years-old) but he’s now an atheist. The pair actually met several years ago through childhood friends in Miami (where she was partly raised).
“They’ve been friends for a long time,” an insider tells BOSSIP. “But it looks like the timing is finally right.” Our source says things took a romantic turn last summer but MVP has been wrestling with the Japan Pro league until recently, when he opted to come back stateside. He’s now in talks to return to the WWE, where he’s won both tag team and individual world championships in the past. Ironically enough, Monday Night Wrestling is about the only show to regularly defeat “Love & Hip-Hop” in TV ratings.
Our source tells us MVP is also exploring a rap career, so we’re guessing we can look forward to seeing him on next season…
He’s got a new song called “Ghetto Strong Style”.
