In recent weeks we’ve heard a lot about Mimi Faust and her beef with ‘Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta’ co-star K.Michelle. If you’ve been under a rock, Mimi and K. Michelle are currently feuding over allegations K made about Mimi’s new boyfriend, Nikko. Yes that’s right, Mimi has gotten off the Stevie J bus long enough to fiind herself a new man.
However, K. Michelle alleges Mimi’s new man is on the down low and using her for TV. Although there have been some war of the words amongst the two ladies and the man in question, we were able to speak with Mimi’s new man, in his first sit down interview, to find out who is Nikko, his relationship with Mimi and K. Michelle’s allegations.
Ms. Toni of cottenkandi.com sat down with Nikko to speak on his relationship with Mimi and addresses K. Michelle.
Ms. Toni: Are you dating Mimi from Love And Hip Hop (2:24 mark)?
When did you guys meet and began dating?
We’ve known each other for about 12 years. We just started rekindling the new flames that we want to. We just saw each other at the VMA’s so about a good 4 or 5 months now.
So there’s no more Stevie J and Mimi, Joseline love triangle?
Absolutely. No more Stevie J.
How do you want to address rumors, allegations K. Michelle made about you being gay (2:59 mark)?
I want to address them by saying I’m not gay. I’m not bisexual and I’m not on the down low. I’m a straight man and heterosexual. Anybody who knows me and if you want to do your research you can check all this out. There’s a slew of guys that know me and know what I’m about. The way I raise myself is that I’m a street kid from Brooklyn. So anybody that knows me from Brooklyn they can tell you my resume.
Why would she [K Michelle] say something like that?
You gotta take it from a girl that really don’t have a man figure in her life and that has a lot of issues. Even on the show as a bully with everybody. She has a war with anybody, everybody. She don’t really know me. I met her twice so for her to make those rumors those opinions, that’s what it is, it’s her opinion. She don’t know anything about me. It was just something for her to get ratings or to take a blow at Mimi because Mimi’s happy. I see her as a home wrecker. This is what she’s known for and this is why she don’t have a man.
Her words don’t validate who I am or her opinion don’t really matter to me. Do I have a gay member in my family? Of course, I have a gay member in my family. I’m not homophobic at all….so for her to make those assumptions and those opinions that’s a strike at the gay community within itself. I don’t have anything against gay people. I’m not gay at all. That’s pretty much what it is.
Do you make appearances on the show?
What can we expect to see you doing? As Mimi’s boyfriend or Nikko the artist?
You’re gonna have to wait to see when the show airs.
