It looks like Erica Mena and Kiyomi Leslie have two things in common. They both dated rapper Shad “Bow Wow” Moss and are no longer with him.
In the Monday, April 27 episode of “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta,” Mena and Leslie met up and discussed Leslie’s physical altercation with the “So So Def” rapper last year. The 29-year-old model and Bow Wow were caught on camera having a heated conversation at the child star’s luxurious Atlanta apartment complex. Authorities accused them both of assaulting each other, but Leslie claimed she was defending herself.
After the 29-year-old model went into more detail about the incident on the show, Mena told Leslie she was proud of how she handled the entire situation. When Leslie began tearing up and getting emotional, Mena sympathized and said she could relate.
“I can cry with you cause I’ve been there,” said Mena. In response, Leslie replied, “I feel horrible because everybody judges me.”
Despite the two women having a heart-to-heart conversation, “LHHATL” viewers thought it was ironic to have both of Bow Wow’s exes conversing about him.
“How ironic – both of Bowwows ex’s 😂”
“So Erica co-signing home girl is suppose to make us believe that they weren’t aggressors & beating up poor bow wow?? Yeah wrong co-signer Mona”
“Bow wow ‘s exes are a f–king joke I can’t believe they really linking up 😂”
“When your ex’s link up to talk about you. Kiyomi & Erica. Please don’t tell me they gonna drag that Bow wow storyline into this ☹️ we are tyaddddddddd”
“Erica want a story so bad she meeting up with her ex ex gf to tlk about man 😂😂😂😂😂 i canttttt !!! She rlly sign that kind of contract with Mona 💀”
In February 2019, Leslie and Bow Wow presumably called it quits after they both were arrested for domestic battery. Since both individuals sustained “visible minor injuries,” Atlanta officers could not determine a primary aggressor and charged both parties with battery.
Last July, when Leslie claimed the Ohio native punched her in the stomach and caused her to miscarry their unborn child, Mena co-signed on what Leslie said and indicated she too was abused by Bow Wow.
“I’m the tough girl so my story was never the truth but y’all see how round 4 played out,” said Mena.
Mena and Bow Wow ended their engagement in 2015. She apparently left the relationship because of the abuse.
