The raunchy tape featuring the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star was intentionally leaked and a source shares that Mimi made $100,000 on Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta. Steve Hirsch admitted he knew the tape would be huge, but it was a "struggle" to get it released. “It would be against privacy laws [to release it without consent] so Steve had to talk to Mimi and Nikko,” Vivid’s press manager said. “We let them know that this tape was stolen from them along with the camera. He asked them if they wanted to cooperate and have us distribute or take a chance at that guy? They agreed to distribute!”

"Mimi has no shame, she and Nikko went in knowing what they were doing" and they “shopped the tape to he highest bidder,” a source adds. "Mimi and Nikko are shooting for the stars, and obviously, they aren’t concerned about how they’re going to get there. If people are going to hate, they’re going to let them."
Apparently this all part of Mimi's strategy to make a name for herself outside of reality TV, following in the footsteps of Kim Kardashian and Farrah Abraham who also leaked sex tapes through Vivid. "Mimi is trying to make a name for herself and become relevant and she’s riding this new wave of fame until it ends," the source explains. "No shade but she ain’t ever been talked about like this by mainstream outlets.”
"If you going to f**k on camera at least be a freak not a boring 45 year old lady. What they got this hoe under – granny porn?" Joseline tweeted. She even went so far as to post naked stills from the sex tape (and videos) along with scathing commentary too salacious for our Reality Tea ears to repeat!
K. Michelle was a little nicer, but barely. "I'll never wish bad on another woman, but the way those bitches in Atlanta treated me bad! I'm not perfect and I have my own skeletons, but a deserve this good laugh," she wrote on Instagram along with a video mocking Mimi.
However a source close to the show claims Mimi's co-stars are lashing out because they're jealous of her sudden attention! "Real talk, they’re jealous of the fame she’s getting off it but they don’t have the balls to do one themselves. This came out of left field. Like, Mimi dropped a bomb and it exploded big time," the source says of K. Michelle and Joseline.
In fact rumor has it L&HH ATL producers are glad the tape leaked because of all the attention the show is now getting. Which is allegedly another reason for K. Michelle and Joseline's jealousy.
Well, yeah… OK. Sure jealous of a sex tape. I've heard stranger.
