LHHATL Tommie alias Atasha Jefferson arrest records and mugshots

Love and Hip Hop Atlanta Tommie

Earlier this week, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta fans were surprised by a report which appeared to detail a secret identity for Tommie, one of several new additions to the show’s cast. According to that report–none of which has been confirmed–Tommie’s real name is Atasha Jefferson, and the lengthy list of Atasha Jefferson arrest records includes alleged ties to a rumored forgery ring run by Karen “KK” King, another new LHHATL cast member.

Fameolous broke the story, which is based on an anonymous tip the site received. (The entire tip is too long to reprint here; you can read the whole thing in the original article.) According to their source, Atasha Jefferson–who is only an alleged alias for Tommie–”use[d] to work for Karen doing identity fraud,” and is “wanted right now in Minnesota” on forgery charges. Atasha apparently underwent plastic surgery in Miami, and paid for it with money stolen through the scams, but “the doctor who did it…also pressed charges against her for stealing.”


Again: we can’t confirm that Atasha Jefferson and LHHATL‘s Tommie are indeed the same person. What we do know, however, is that some of the claims the tipster made regarding Atasha Jefferson appear to be at least partially true. Atasha C. Jefferson–who in turn goes by the alias Atasha Chizzaah Moore–was booked into the DeKalb County (GA) Jail on May 2nd, 2013, on one first degree felony charge. Jefferson posted a $3,500 bail and was released four days later.

Before that, the Atasha Jefferson arrest records include an appearance in court in Gwinnett County Court (also in Georgia) back in 2010. In that instance, Jefferson faced three charges: one count of “Giving False Name, Address, Or Birthdate” on June 19th of that year; one count of driving while her license was suspended, on the same day; and one count of driving while her registration was suspended, also on the same day. Jefferson received twelve months’ probation on the first charge; she received verdicts of “Nolle Prosequi” on the latter two charges, though the reason why isn’t immediately clear from the court record.

Atasha Jefferson’s arrest records are longest in Fulton County, which includes most of the city of Atlanta, and Clayton County, slightly north of the city. She was arrested nine times in Fulton between 2006 and 2014, on a variety of different charges: three different counts of battery (one of which involves–for real–a bus hijacking); five counts of shoplifting; and, most recently, of the more general “Theft of Service.” (Note: If you follow the link above, you’ll note eleven different entries in Atasha Jefferson’s arrest record. Two of those are transfers from one institution to another, and not separate arrests.) And, as far as Clayton goes, Jefferson went to court on thirteen different charges there, several of which, again in 2010, involved forgery.

In addition, the most recent Fulton County record lists a Florida address for Jefferson. That would appear to sync up with the Fameolous article–but the only Atasha Jefferson arrest record we could find in the state of Florida involved a car accident, and not theft, as the anonymous tipster alleged. Court records indicate that Atasha was actually not even arrested after being charged with Leaving the Scene of a Crash on August 18th, 2014; she received a $50 fine and was released on her own recognizance.

It doesn’t look like there are any pending warrants or previous arrests for Jefferson in Miami. The claim that she is wanted for forgery in Minnesota, however, appears to have at least some truth to it. There is an outstanding warrant for Atasha Chizaah Jefferson (the spelling of “Chizzaah” differs almost from county to county) in the state, on the charge of a probation violation stemming from identity theft. The warrant is dated February 8th, 2013; it may be worth pointing out that 2013 was also the first year since 2007 that Atasha was not arrested in the state of Georgia.

So! To cap all that criminology off (phew!), here’s a collage of Atasha Jefferson mugshot photos from throughout the years, exclusive to Georgia, and assembled in a rough chronological order:


For her part, Tommie has denied any connection with the allegations in the original report. She’s made two references to them, though, both on her Instagram account–and it seems fairly clear she’s not sweating anything. The first, though, appeared to feature activity that could easily get a person arrested:

“Everybody talking,” Tommie wrote. “I feel like a trending topic #hashtag I bet yo mouth bigger than yo pockets!! And NO! We don’t #drink&drive.”

That update came two days ago, just as the story broke. Yesterday, Tommie reinforced her chill with a more relaxed update:

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta has only been back for a week, but, between the allegations against Tommie, the crazy criminal backstory involving Karen and sons Scrapp DeLeon and Sas, and the seemingly never-ending conflict between Stevie J, Joseline, and Mimi Faust, it feels like we’ve had a season’s worth of drama already!

You can catch new episodes of LHHATL Season 5 Monday nights at 8 PM on VH1.

    It’s totally her. Even if she didn’t look completely identical to the mugshots, just look at the comparison picture on the right. She has a little spot on her neck and then on the picture next to it looks like she has the same exact mark, just less noticeable.

    • Larry Davis

      Good eye….some of those pics clearly show she was a hooker & drug addict too

  • bambiglanville

    she’s giving Jenelle a run for her money.

  • Charla

    Ok so all of those mugshots are not the same person. The photo from 2003 is not the same person in the 2010. It still seems like this bird can’t stay out of trouble, though. Some people just don’t need to walk the streets.

    • mel

      girl come on. yes, it is her. the only difference is that in 2003 she had no eyebrows.

      • Charla

        I took a second look, and I think you’re onto something about her eyebrows. lol

  • Latoya Davis

    Shakira said “The hips don’t lie” well in this case the eyes don’t lie. In each page the eyes stay the same.

    I’m all about supporting woman who reprogram themselves and make changes for the better. However, Tommie pissed me off when she made the statement: “Can’t no other woman walk a mile in my shoes Blah, Blah Blah.” She says she’s from Newark New Jersey, had a baby in jail, went through 100’s of car accidents, and ran the damn streets. Is that so deserving? Baby you called your own shots! I hate when woman persuade the world in believing life was only bad for them as if struggle is a pigment of “our” imagination.. Honey we’ve all witnessed the worst, I live in Trenton NJ( the capital). Violent crimes-942, property crimes-2,093 Total- 3,035 / a population of 84,308. With that being said, my fiance lost 6 friends in the last five years, during the summer we have to sleep on he floor to avoid the shots fired. But you don’t see me and mines rallied in the mist of war screaming, “BITCH I”M DOWN FOR WHATEVA.”

      Did you just say “Pigment”???? Oh m lord.

  • The Opinionator

    That’s her. She thinks so hard because of her record but in half of the mugshots she’s crying. She so annoying! I hope they show the drama between Joseline and Tommie.

    • Brittney

      She wasn’t crying in any of her mugshots…. you must be dumb.

    • Brittney

      shows how much you know??

  • DontBeASheepleToSociety

    she’s so pathetic.. but what’s sadder is how LHHP is exploiting this crackhead… shameful. but hey that’s this good old land called junkieland…methtown….. oh oops.. america.. sorry.. sometimes i’m just too honest!

  • Vintage

    Jeez. She’s annoying as hell, ratchet as hell, uneducated as hell, whore-ish as hell. She has 0 self respect and dignity. The only things she seems to do is lay hands on everybody. They all the same person- TOMMIE. Just bcos you ain’t wearing makeup doesn’t mean your crackhead ass is unrecognisable.

    • Renee Yvonne

      I hope she got her life together…

  • Danielle Wallace

    Those that are saying it’s not her, you need glasses. That is the same woman in every pic. You people are the type who will get an innocent man on death row and let a guilty man go free. Blind asses.

  • H.C.

    Makeup does wonders!

  • Allie

    All y’all bitches talking shit while she’s sitting pretty getting paid.
