‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’: Sierra slammed for 'assaulting' Karlie, fans say she should be locked up
‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta' star Sierra Gates’s legal woes might not end anytime soon. The reality star has found herself in the midst of an assault trial after her baby daddy Shooter’s ex filed a case against the ‘LHHATL’ star for assaulting her.
Sierra claims that she is innocent and wasn’t even near the woman on the day of the said incident. She asks Shooter to testify for her so that she won’t have to serve time in prison. Sadly for Sierra, her baby daddy refuses to set foot in the court but assures her saying he knows that she didn’t hurt his ex.
Thankfully for Sierra, her close friend and fellow cast member Karlie Redd comes to the rescue and agrees to help out Sierra by testifying for her. Karlie reveals that she was with Sierra that day and Sierra never laid a finger on the other woman. On the day of trial, Karlie couldn’t manage to make it to the court on time due to heavy traffic. Although the case hearing is postponed to a later date, Sierra feels betrayed by Karlie and decides to express it.
Later when Sierra runs into Karlie, she “mushes” her face for not showing up at the court even before Karlie had time to explain the reason for her absence. Fans were furious with Sierra for “assaulting” Karlie when she volunteered to help Sierra and couldn’t make it due to a genuine reason.
A fan tweeted, “Sierra assaults Karlie because she showed up late to her hearing for her assaulting somebody else??? #LHHATL.” Another fan wrote, “Take Sierra to jail. She clearly can’t keep her hands to herself #LHHATL.”
“First of all Sierra is already fight an assault case and gonna mush Karlie’s face? That’s another case DUMMY! And why her lawyer at the event allowing her to drink and jeopardize her freedom? Chile, I got beef with @MonaScottYoung for this raggedy a** storyline! #LHHATL,” pointed out an annoyed fan.
Fans felt that Sierra should be put away for her violent behavior, they also felt that her behavior towards Karlie was unacceptable. A fan commented, “Sierra just wanna have an issue with Karlie. Before she even asked her why she was late she was already believing rumors but that's supposed to be her best friend though. Karlie gave a valid reason for being late and she still had a nasty attitude #lhhatl.”
