Tommie Lee is an American rapper, reality TV star, and urban model best known for her appearance on VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.” Lee, of African-American descent, was born in the United States on June 19, 1984, in Newark, New Jersey. She was raised by her mom, Samantha. Duby and Yani are her brothers, and Rayjasha and Versace are her two sisters — although Lee and her sister Versace don’t get along well.

Lee worked as a concert publicist before making her reality television debut. In 2012, she first appeared on reality television in the series “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.” She appeared in the first season as a guest at Rasheeda Frost’s listening event. She then enters season five’s supporting cast as rapper Scrapp DeLeon’s girlfriend. The season follows their rocky relationship as well as her violent feud with DeLeon’s baby mama, Tiarra Becca. After he is arrested for marijuana trafficking, the couple splits up. She then begins a bitter dispute with Joseline Hernandez, culminating in an off-camera incident in which Lee is accused of attempting to run Hernandez down with her car.

In the sixth season of “Love and Hip Hop,” Lee became one of the few cast members who were promoted to lead roles. Her exploits surrounding the introduction of her wine company were the focus of the season. Lee’s “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” reality T.V. career took a hit while she battled drinking. Her inability to control her drinking led to her dismissal from the show. She became inebriated on-site and assaulted one of the producers and the security staff. She was recalled and appeared in two more episodes, although she was not permitted to consume alcohol on set. In season one of “Leave It to Stevie,” Lee plays a supporting role, and in season two, she makes a guest appearance. She’s featured in the “Dirty Little Secrets 2” and “The Love Edition specials.”

Lee has a long history of legal troubles, having been arrested at least once a year since 2003 on accusations ranging from disorderly conduct to identity fraud, forgery, shoplifting, theft, and violence — including a bus hijacking episode. She has two daughters, Samaria and Havali; Samaria, her eldest daughter, was born to her when she was 17 and in prison.

In 2022, Lee served as a casting judge and is a producer for Zeus Network’s original hit series “Baddies West.”
