Tokyo Vanity is brand new to Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta this season but she’s managed to build quite a following of fans and foes in a very short time.
As Tokyo maneuvers the shady world of reality TV, she made enemies with another newcomer, dancehall star Spice. There is no love lost between the two LHHATL newbies and their most recent conflict has a lot of viewers wanting to know more about Tokyo Vanity and what she was up to before being cast on the VH1 hit.
Tokyo Vanity is just 23 years old, making her one of the youngest Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta stars ever. In addition to being young, she’s also a virgin. That was a huge shock to the rest of the Atlanta cast this season, who still can’t seem to figure out what she’s waiting for.
Tokyo is from New Orleans East and before being cast by Monami Entertainment, she was still enjoying quite a bit of fame after releasing a popular bounce track, “That’s My Best Friend”. Tokyo’s song was released in 2015 and quickly went viral. Now, she’s looking at nearly 21 million views for the video just on YouTube alone.
In case you’re wondering how Tokyo Vanity might handle her latest LHHATL beef with Spice, the answer is that she’s never been afraid to stick up for herself. Fans learned that about Tokyo back when she released “That’s My Best Friend”. When Young Thug came right behind her and offered up his own track simply titled “Best Friend”, she called him out on it.
Tokyo took to Instagram, where she currently has almost a million followers, and told the world that Young Thug stole her song. She even showed fans a message from the director of Young Thug’s music video, asking her to be in it. Clearly, Tokyo turned that down and to this day says that the beef with the Atlanta-based rapper is not over.
“My song is copywritten and trademarked, b***h,” Tokyo said as she called out Young Thug. “I could sue if I want to, b***h. I will spit in y’all f***ing face. Keep telling me what the f*** I got. F*** Young Thug.”
Tokyo also proved that she’s not putting up with any nonsense recently when she packed up and walked out on Karlie Redd right in the middle of the Love & Hip Hop veteran’s gossip sessions. Karlie has been exposing everyone this season and when Karlie sat them down to talk about what Tokyo’s ex Tabius had been up to, Tokyo made it clear that she was over the whole mess.
Tonight on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, Tokyo Vanity is going to come face to face with Spice again. The two have been beefing ever since Tokyo found out that Spice was dating Tabius after she dumped him.
With both women headed to Houston for the grand opening of Rasheeda’s new Pressed location, sparks are going to fly between Tabius’s women. As we saw in the mid-season trailer, Tokyo becomes so enraged at Spice after a food-throwing incident that she tries to take her down.
In an effort to keep Tokyo and Spice from really fighting, it ends up taking multiple members of the security team to hold Tokyo back, proving that those who want to cross her better be ready because she’s not afraid to throw hands.
Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta airs Mondays at 8/7c on VH1.
