Read the official “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood” Season 4 synopsis (via VH1 press release) below:
With a new deal at Epic Records and a major album in the works, R&B icon Keyshia Cole is determined to re-assert herself as an A-list artist and make peace with her famously precarious personal life. After years of on-again / off-again drama with her husband, ex-NBA star Daniel “Booby” Gibson, she’s officially filing for divorce, even as the two navigate an unusual co-parenting relationship that finds them living under one roof while attempting to lead separate lives.
Meanwhile, ten years after her blockbuster single “Girl Fight,” Brooke Valentine strives to mount her own musical comeback, but betrayals by her boyfriend, up-and-coming rapper/songwriter Marcus Black, prove a constant distraction. When a scorned Brooke seeks comfort in the arms of her longtime best friend Daniel “Booby” Gibson, emerging romantic feelings threaten to complicate their unique bond — and further undermine his already fragile relationship with Keshia.
Powered by her thriving business empire and the love of a younger guy, Hazel-E is back in Hollywood — and ready to stunt on all the haters. At the top of her list? Masika Kalysha, who’s also busy waging a social media war against Fetty Wap’s OTHER ex, Atlanta-based dancer and Instagram star Alexis Skyy. Roaring into L.A. on a mission to confront her online nemesis, Alexis instead comes face-to-face with relationship drama involving her new man Solo Lucci, a white-hot Southern rapper on the come-up.
After the dismissal of her high-profile assault case, Teairra Mari re-emerges on the Hollywood scene in a brand new relationship with producer Cisco Rosado. Conflict erupts as Cisco butts heads with Teairra’s close friends – including Nia Riley and Keyshia Cole’s stylist Zellswag who worry that he’s enabling her self-destructive tendencies.
With multiple chart-climbing hits and the launch of his own record label, A1 Bentley’s career couldn’t be hotter. His marriage is a different story, as wife Lyrica Anderson struggles to complete her debut album while spending too many nights alone. When Lyrica bans A1 from collaborating with other female artists, she sets in motion a passive-aggressive battle that exposes both of their insecurities.
Moniece is back, and she’s in love… with a woman. After an intense, six-month “instant relationship,” Moniece and her girlfriend A.D. Diggs have just moved in together… and they seem like an ideal couple. But while Lil’ Fizz supports Moniece’s evolving sexual identity, he’s less enthusiastic about getting caught up in all the drama when she inevitably sabotages her own best shot at happiness.
Ready to show the world that she’s more than the giggling blonde girl on MTV’s “RIDICULOUSNESS,” Chanel West Coast is making moves to shift her hip-hop career into overdrive. When their mutual friend Miss Nikki Baby suggests they work together, Safaree is down with the idea — drawn to Chanel’s ambition and big social media following. But her demanding, aggressive, outspoken personality could make for a short-lived collaboration.
Finally, after several months abroad, Ray J. and Princess Love return to Hollywood with a focus on starting a family. But when baby-making proves more difficult than expected, Ray J. diverts his attention back to music – specifically his raunchy collaboration with Bridget Kelly, a tough and sexy former Roc Nation artist who just moved to L.A. in pursuit of a rare second shot at stardom.
