‘LHHATL’ Star Tommie Lee Back in Jail, Shares Inspirational Posts While Behind Bars

It appears that “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” alum Tommie Lee is back in jail after showing up to her court date intoxicated.

On March 14, the reality star was in court for her criminal child case, but ended up having to undergo drug and alcohol testing after she arrived looking visibly drunk. TMZ reports that she blew a .16 which is twice the legal limit and she was arrested on the spot.

She is currently being held without bond.

Although she is back behind bars, Lee seems to be in good spirits after someone from her team has been sharing inspirational Instagram posts on her behalf.

One post said, “The world might give up on you a million times,” Lee wrote on Tuesday. “Don’t give up on yourself.”

She continued in a separate post, “It doesn’t matter how many times you have to start over as long as you don’t quit!”

In October 2018, the “LHHATL” alum was arrested on charges of felony aggravated assault, battery and child cruelty after allegedly slapping her daughter and slamming the child’s head into a metal locker at a Cobb County middle school. She eventually posted a $27,000 bail, but was placed into custody just a few hours later after violating a court order that prohibited any contact with her daughter. During the interval between her two arrests within some 24 hours she racked up an obstruction-of-an officer charge after refusing to come to the door of her home when officers arrived, after which she was booked without bond.

Lee seemingly addressed the child cruelty case in a December Instagram post after being released from jail, saying that she’s “not a perfect Person nor do I pretend to be!! … Its an everyday struggle trying to keep my #Dreams from becoming #nightmares.”

Despite her legal woes, the mother of two with a record of some 30 arrests has been showered with a gang of support from fans and her social media followers.

“I don’t like how the media portray her to be,” one person wrote. “She seems like a nice person.”

“Y’all all judging her,& dont even no the situation. Mf”s feed too much into social media,& judge tf outta people without even knowing real facts,” another added. “Stop being quick to jump on people’s page judging as if y’all living perfect.”

“Everyone is mad at her but the girl who beat her mother from DR. Phil has deals and contracts… pick y’all poisons ,” someone else commented.
