Tommie Lee is a highly-experienced and incredibly eccentric figure in the watermelon world. “He’s the kind of guy who makes you crack up,” said Bob Scott, Vice President of the Watermelon Research Station. “He’s gone into some of the most interesting nuances of the watermelon. He’s also an awful lot of fun to visit with.



Tommie Lee is an urban model, socialite and rapper. She has two daughters, Havali and Samaria, from previous relationships. Tommie has had multiple legal issues in the past and has been arrested at least once every year since 2003 for a variety of charges including disorderly conduct, identity fraud, forgery, shoplifting, theft and battery, including an incident where she hijacked a bus. She gave birth to one of her daughters while incarcerated.

Tommie is promoted to the main cast in season six. The season chronicles the launch of her wine line, Le'Don, which is complicated by her struggle with alcoholism. Her drinking problems continue into season seven, straining her already volatile relationship with her mother Samantha and sister Versace, and threatening to derail a potential rap career. In the eleventh episode, "Houston We Have A Problem", one scene shows an intoxicated Tommie Lee breaking the fourth wall and attacking a producer, as well as security. In an unusual move, executive producer Stephanie Gayle announced to the cast on camera that Tommie was no longer allowed on set, effectively firing her from the show. However, she returned to the show two episodes later, on the condition that she not drink on set. (Source: love-hip-hop.fandom.com)



In 2019, Tommie almost served time in jail for reportedly assaulting Havalli, who was in middle school at the time. After she pleaded guilty to one count of cruelty to children in the first degree, three counts of simple battery, family violence, and one count of disrupting public school, Tommie was instead sentenced to 10 years, with two years to serve and the rest on probation. The two years was suspended upon completion of a residential recovery program and 12 months of successful aftercare with a psychologist or psychiatrist.

Tommie, however, did not appreciate those who advised that she discipline her daughter by beating her. She wrote, “After reviewing some of these remarks, I feel compelled to speak on the fact that I’ve repeatedly thought about this incident and if it had taken a turn for the worse. [Most] of everybody who commented said I should beat my child and spoke as if they knew that that’s where my head was when I mentioned discipline. And to be honest, it wasn’t. My previous run-in with my child that was so publicly scrutinized was the second time I’ve ever had to be physical with her and both times I cried after. If you know me in real life, then you know this to be true.” (Source: bckonline.com)
