Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Tokyo Vanity has been boo’ed up with fellow Atlanta rapper Ferrari Tru for a few weeks now. Earlier today, Ferrari got the full Safaree Samuels treatment, when a brief (but prominent) clip of Ferrari waving his eggplant around leaked on social media. The timing of the two occurrences has LHHATL fans wondering if the Ferrari Tru dick vid was leaked intentionally, in order for Ferrari to improve his chances of joining the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 8 cast.
Before going any further, we should point out that we can’t actually embed the Ferrari Tru dick vid in the article. However, the intrepid tea spillers over at Best Reality Blog have the full clip, which you can see for yourself by clicking here. We *can* tell you that the short video depicts a pantsless and open-shirted Ferrari showing off his goods, and at one point laughing and saying “Hold my dick like a joystick.”
And here’s probably the only vaguely SFW screenshot we can share:
So far, we haven’t been able to track down exactly where Ferrari’s vid came from, let alone figure out the context in which it was filmed. It might be worth pointing out, though, that Ferrari’s official Twitter account is currently suspended. (His Instagram page is up and running.)
Tokyo Vanity, who dealt with allegations that she’s actually gay all season long during her LHHATL Season 7 debut, went public with Ferrari in mid-June, though the two had been working on music together for some time before that. The photo at the top of the article is a screengrab from a studio session the two participated in last month; another, from the same session, is below:
If you’re wondering where you’ve heard the name Ferrari Tru before, it’s most likely because Rob Kardashian believed Ferrari to be man with whom Blac Chyna cheated when Blac and Rob’s relationship was falling apart a couple years back. Per The Black Loop, Ferrari Tru — whose real name is DeJanel Carter — also found himself in headlines over an unrelated paternity scandal involving “a popular Atlanta socialite named Bonita4Real,” who alleged that Ferrari was the father of her then-unborn baby. That particular controversy ended when Ferrari took a DNA test, which proved that Ferrari was Bonita’s baby daddy.
(Mona, if you’re reading this, we’d like to point out that Ferrari agreed to take a test way, way sooner than Kirk Frost. This would seem to suggest that he’s more decisive in general — and as far as we’re concerned, the LHHATL cast could use someone like that next year.)
At this point, it seems like the leak of Ferrari’s nude video could have been a mistake just as easily as it could have been someone close to him doing a bit of dirty work to try and improve his chances of making it onto Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 8. We’ll update this article when and if we find out more about the video & the circumstances that made it public.
