Now that Nikko has come out with the allegation that Mimi was fully in on the sex tape and in fact was the mastermind behind it, there’s an all-out war brewing on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Mimi denies that she had any part in turning their private bedroom activities into a hefty paycheck, but even her bestie Ariane is starting to doubt her, so we don’t know what to believe. That’s why we’re grateful to VH1’s The Gossip Table for trying to get to the bottom of things by going straight to the source, Steve Hirsch, the head of Vivid Entertainment. When asked to comment on who was truly responsible for the tape landing at his desk, Hirsch told The Gossip Table:
“I have no idea if both Mimi and Nikko were in on this together. What I do know is that a tape was sent our way and we subsequently made a deal with both Mimi and Nikko.”
We know Mimi can’t claim total innocence here — she signed a contract to make money off the tape, sure. But was she actually the mastermind? Only time will tell.
