On “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” episode 7, we meet Karlie’s manager Malcolm Miles, who not only thinks Karlie has lost focus when it has come to her career, but believes that her relationship with Benzino might end up permanently damaging it even begins.

“What’s been going on with this Benzino guy?” Malcolm asks Karlie.
“What Benzino guy?” asks Karlie.
“Benzino…’Source’ magazine” replies Miles.
Reluctantly, Karlie gives up the information.
“We’re dating … We’re seeing each other. I like him. He loves me,” says Karlie.
“Shut up, Karlie,” Malcolm tells his artist.
In her confessional, Karlie then explains why it seems dating Benzino is such a big problem for her manager—and maybe for her career.
“As time went on, [Benzino] p****d a lot of people off. People don’t want to mess with him. People don’t wanna work with him,” Karlie tells viewers in this scene, which can be watched in VH1’s exclusive sneak peek for episode 7 of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta.”
“But I’m really digging [Benzino] now,” Karlie adds.
Even after Karlie tries to tell her manager that she’s not only dating Benzino, but hoping to work with him in the studio, Miles clearly still isn’t on board.
“If it’s somebody who’s hot and relevant, and going to put you in a certain light, then maybe,” he says.
“That’s so wrong,” Karlie says, laughing.
“But it’s the truth,” replies Miles.
“Every woman needs love,” replies Karlie.
“Well guess what…you want love or you want a career right now?” Miles tells Karlie.
Episode 7 of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” will also feature K Michelle, who writes and sings a song to Mimi–which of course makes reference to both Joseline and Stevie J.
