The inescapable struggle that was the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta Reunion has already prompted legal action to be taken against one of the more enigmatic cast members.

The fact that there was a no-holds brawl surprises no one. It’s the alleged trigger behind the rap royal rumble that will have the masses puzzled.

Althea Eaton is accusing Joseline Hernandez of firing up a glass of crack rock and using its mythical powers to provoke everyone into throwing blows.

Reports TMZ:

A vicious “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” brawl has triggered a lawsuit … which now alleges one of the stars was smoking crack cocaine at the reunion show.

Althea Eaton has filed suit against Joseline Hernandez, who is caught on tape punching Althea in the face and dragging her to the ground … then hitting and scratching her for good measure.

In the suit, Althea claims eyewitnesses allegedly observed Joseline smoking crack cocaine out of a pipe backstage during the show. Althea believes Joseline was high as a kite when she attacked.

It’s interesting … Althea is NOT suing the show or the network, which means one of 2 things:

1. Producers didn’t orchestrate the fight

2. They did but she needs the job
