‘L&HH’ star Lyrica Anderson files for divorce from rapper A1 Bentley
‘Love & Hip Hop’ star Lyrica Anderson has filed for divorce from A1 Bentley after over five years of marriage.
According to TMZ, the “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” star filed the divorce papers to a Los Angeles courthouse on Friday, January 7. Other details are currently not available, but the couple has been open about their marital issues.
The “Act a Fool” songstress and the record producer, who has written for high-profiles artists such as Chris Brown and Ty Dolla $ign, tied the knot in 2016, but it was plagued by multiple issues.
Their relationship struggles were often highlighted on VH1’s “LHH: Hollywood”, including when Lyrica was accused of having an affair with her co-star Safaree Samuels during season 5 of the reality series.
At the time of the cheating allegations, Lyrica was pregnant, but A1 and his immediate family demanded a paternity test. After it was confirmed that A1 is the father, he reconciled with her.
The couple welcomed their son, Ocean Zion Bentley, on November 30, 2018.
However, their marriage was once again thrown into turmoil in season 6 when A1 was accused of cheating on Lyrica with model Summer Bunni. Lyrica confronted them about the rumors of them sleeping together in an August 2019 episode of the show.
That prompted Summer to admit to Lyrica that she “had sex” with her husband “multiple times,” leaving her shocked and heartbroken. Summer insisted that A1 was the one who was at fault because “he came onto me.” She added, “He knows he’s married, too, so why is it always me? I came to you as a woman and let you know.”
Lyrica and A1 later appeared in a 2020 episode of “The Conversation” to discuss the marital woes they had following A1’s infidelity. “I did you wrong, made a mistake, cheated, you couldn’t get over it,” A1 told his wife.
Meanwhile, Lyrica admitted that she had a “hard time being with someone that I don’t think is going to be completely faithful.”
By the end of the show, it was obvious that Lyrica had made her mind up to end her marriage.
