“Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Myha Thi “Lovely Mimi” Luong was recently apprehended in North Carolina on charges of drug possession.
The 28-year-old mother of two starred on season 6 and 7 of the VH1 series, but fans apparently haven’t heard much from her until she made headlines a few days ago. According to arrest records reportedly obtained by Trappalachia, she was arrested Thursday, June 6, by tribal police after dropping an unspecified amount of ecstasy on the floor of Harrah’s Cherokee Valley River Casino in Cherokee County. She was charged with a felony possession of a schedule 1 controlled substance.
Detention officers in the North Carolina county reportedly told the news source that the television personality was handed a $1,000 bond by a magistrate and has already gotten out of jail. If the reality star is convicted of the charge, she could be looking at 3 to 12 months behind bars.
Since being released from jail, Lovely Mimi has set her Instagram account on private. Her 2.2 million fans and followers are the only ones who have access to her funny vlog videos and clips on social media.
While Lovely Mimi could possibly be given time for her charges, it seems her former “LHHATL” co-star Tommie Lee dodged time in the slammer after facing as much as 54 years for her child abuse case.
Lee, 34, pleaded guilty last month to one count of cruelty to children in the first degree, three counts of simple battery, family violence and one count of disrupting public school after assaulting her youngest daughter at the child’s middle school in October. She was sentenced to 10 years of probation and court-mandated time in recovery programs.
She’s been ordered to attend a residential recovery program, and after her program is completed she must spend nearly a year in aftercare with licensed professionals.
Despite Lee’s ongoing legal woes, fans continue to shower her with a stream of support.
“Rooting for you ❤️💪 . U got this Tommie I been there to …Luv you ur style an ur not to be played wit.”
