On this weeks episode of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta Jessica dime meets up with Tierra to catch up and meet a new man. She tells her “I have a friend coming.” Jessica says “I didn’t want to be the bearer of bad news, but now that I know that Tierra is moving on from Scrapp Karlie can find her own way to tell Tierra about pushing up on her baby’s father.” Tierra’s new man J Nick shows up and tells Tierra “The fellas are having a daddy day and I want you to consider letting King come.” Tierra says “No. Scrapp was supposed to set up a meeting between his mother and I and he hasn’t lived up to his end of the deal so why should I reward him?”

Joseline goes over to K Michelle’s house and D Smith is there. They talk about some issues that have arisen and K Michelle says “I have invited everyone to my listening party whether I like you or I hate you.”

At the father and son gathering Joc, Kirk and Scrapp are there, but Scrapp’s son King is not present and Scrapp is really upset. The men all get together and are talking. Joc asks where King is and Scrapp tells him “Tierra won’t let him come because of the issues she has with my mom.” As the guys are talking and comforting Scrapp Tierra walks in with their son. When Scrapp sees King he is so happy he nearly starts to cry and thanks Tierra for allowing him to come.

Rasheeda, Arianne, Bambi and D. Smith all meet up at Cress. D tells them that K Michelle has asked her to be a stylist on her tour. When the ladies hear that D is going to the party they are shocked and tell her to watch her back.

Scrappy and Joc have been evicted so Scrappy is moving back to his old house. Scrappy says “I didn’t want to live there because of all the bad memories. I found out that Bam has moved on and that Rasheeda knew about it and didn’t tell me.” Joc tells him “Maybe she did that for you.” The guys ask J Nick what’s going on. He tells them “I am thinking about moving on from Amber because she is tripping about all of the girls on my Instagram. If Amber can’t get it together then I am going to move on to Tierra.” When the guys hear this they are shocked because they all know that Tierra has a son with Scrapp. Joc tells J Nick “That’s dirty to move on to Scrapp’s baby’s mom.” J tells him “They aren’t seeing each other anymore so why not?”

Scrapp has gone to meet with his lawyer to see what is going on with his case. She tells him “The DA refuses to reduce the charges from marijuana trafficking to possession with the intent to sell.” She also tells him “This charge carries a sentence of thirty years, but he is willing to plead you down to five.” Scrapp is devastated to hear this, but the bad news is not over yet. The lawyer then tells him “Everyone in that courtroom expects that you will be sent away immediately.” Scrapp is devastated and says “My family is going to fall apart.”

Jessica Dime goes to meet up with Scrappy. Scrappy is hoping to learn more about the altercation between her and Bambi. Jessica tells him “Bambi came for me and I had to put her in her place.” Scrappy continues to flirt with Jessica. He challenges her to do five push ups. She tells him “If I win you are going to take me on a date. Don’t take me anywhere cheap because I like nice things.”

Scrapp asks his family to meet up so that he can tell them about what is happening with his case. When he tells them he is looking at a five year sentence KK imeadiately says “Who is your lawyer?” Tommie is also upset and says “Everything has just gotten so real.” Scrapp asks his mother to, once again, sit down with Tierra and try to make peace. Sass agrees with Scrapp. After a minute KK says “It is going to take everything in me, but I am going to give this to you son.” Scrapp is relieved.

Scrappy goes out with Joc and Kirk for a guys night out. Amber is working and flirts with Joc. Joc is not interested in her. Scrapp talks to the guys about his situation with Jessica and Bambi. While Scrappy is talking Amber continues to flirt with Joc and eventually she makes her way over to their table and sits down. Joc says “I would totally get with her if I wasn’t sticking to the bro code.”

The night of K Michelle’s listening party arrives and she is sitting with Arianne talking to her about Mimi and the rest of the girls. Arianne says “I am here to support K Michelle, but I am not going to entertain the jabs about my friends.” She tells K “The girls are all doing well for themselves. This is a dress from Rasheeda’s store.” K says “It’s nice, but don’t put it in the washing machine because all of the beads will fall off.” K Michelle gets up and announces that her record label has allowed her to sign artists. As she is sitting at the table talking to D Smith she mentions her manager and D says “I won’t deal with him. He is shady and I don’t like him.” Joseline asks if it is possible for them to have a conversation and D says “Absolutely not.” D’s friend Betty Idol interjects to give her opinion and says “He is shady. He called me to talk and I told him that he couldn’t leak the record because it wasn’t his.” K tells Betty “You should be on broadway because you are just so dramatic.” Betty and D take offense and an argument is sparked. Betty decides to say “I know I should be on Broadway because I am that fabulous.” K Michelle tells says “The one thing that you won’t do is come for me at my own event.”

Bambi enters the room and is really uncomfortable when she sees D and Betty. She tells K “I am not feeling really comfortable in this situation.” Arianne says “I would have never brought her over to meet D had I known these two girls had beef with each other.”

Scrapp, KK and Tierra meet up to make arrangements so that his son will have both sides of his family while he is in jail. KK immediately starts in on Tierra. Tierra says “She hates me and I hate her, what if when I go to pick up King she tries to fight me?” KK says “Why don’t you fight your baby’s father’s mother?” Tierra says “I’m not going to fight you because I know what you’re capable of.” KK smiles evilly and says “I’m glad you know.” Scrapp says “I just want KK and Tierra to come to a common understanding while I am locked up.” Scrapp is upset as KK and Tierra are screaming at each other. KK tells her “Come across the table.” Tierra screams back “I will come to your house KK.” Scrapp realizes that nothing will be accomplished and says “I’m really disappointed with the outcome of this meeting. It’s just best for these women to go their separate ways. All they understand is screaming and sniping at each other.”
