The last few weeks for Benzino have involved nothing but drama!
His complicated relationship with his daughter, Coi Leray, has been front and center —and now allegations are circulating that he was celebrating her low album sales. Taking to social media, Benzino shut down the claims that he found it funny that Coi Leray’s album sold much less than expected.

In a series of lengthy tweets, Benzino had some things to get off his chest while making it clear that he would never laugh at Coi Leray:
“My legal team is about to go hammer time on anyone who has defamed my name and legacy. You the Tasha K situation right? Ok watch this. Have fun now, pay later. Oh yeah and why would I laugh at Coi? She’s one the best things that I am. I very proud of her and her accomplishments.”
The former Love and Hip Hop Atlanta star clarified who allegedly made the controversial comments.
“I lost @iambenzino a year ago on IG. I lost 1.3 million followers. They must have shut my page down then put the name back out there. I been reported that page months ago on benzinos_legendary which they just shut down days ago @benzino.scott is what I’m using now. 2 all you goofy mf in internet land, Instagram took down my @iambenzino page a year ago. Then the last 2 months someone else pops up with @iambenzino. They’re even clowning me on that page. All you mfs who came at me cause you thought it was me keep that same energy when I see u.”
The “Benzino” account responded to the news that Coi Leray’s debut album, ‘Trendsetter,’ only sold 11,000 copies in its first week, which many industry insiders say is far below expectations for the project.

As we previously reported, Benzino and Coi had a vicious war of words on social media earlier this month when she claimed he was threatening her mother and calling her out because she spoke about his financial situation during her interview on ‘The Breakfast Club.’
