Last year the reality TV star got into a mass of legal trouble seemingly due to her problems with excessive alcohol consumption. However, since resolving her child abuse case in May, Lee claimed she’s been completely sober. She took to Instagram on Tuesday and shared a now-deleted video of a TMZ employee asking her about her sobriety.
“Now I’m six months on a b–ch,” she playfully yelled at the TMZ cameraman while walking to her car. “What they gon’ do with me now.”
She added in her caption, “TMZ ran down ona b–ch had ta give em ah update really 7 months sober tell dem hoes dat 🙌”
Although Lee later deleted the clip, she was showered with a mass of fan support on her sobriety announcement.
“Yesss Tommie go head and let em know that you got this s–t! 😍”
“Yesss queen so proud of your sobriety journey 🙏 I’m rooting for you to win sis”
“Go head Tommie! Tell them b–ches to go run n tell dat! Dey stay wit dey name in yo mouth”
“Congrats sis I’m so proud of you. Continue to do ya thang 💘🙏”
The 35-year-old star left season 7 of “LHHATL” on shaky ground after being put on blast for her excessive drinking. At one point she was prevented from filming due to her violent outbursts. She did, however, reveal during the season that alcoholism runs deep in her family. She added that drinking helps her cope with a lot of hardships going on in her life.
“I don’t really have support,” she said during her confessional that season. “To deal with the thoughts of my mom not liking me, hating me, and the stress that I’m going through with my brothers and sisters like how big my heart is and open to everybody — they don’t feel the same way about me, so that kinda like hurts.”
She was allegedly fired from the show due to her legal woes and alleged substance abuse.
The mother of two just began her 10-year probation term stemming from her child abuse case. It reportedly consists of her abstaining from drugs and alcohol, including random drug and alcohol testings.
