*Well wow, who knew? Former “Love &Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Benzino is dealing with some super serious legal issues and basically it’s been on the down low so almost nobody knows about it.

According to TMZ,  Benzino was arrested back in January 2017 and charged with felony possession of THC oil gummies (22 grams), felony possession of 6 MDMA pills and misdemeanor possession of less than an ounce of weed.

As far as legal documents, Atlanta police executed a search warrant at his apartment and found the drugs in drawers and on the kitchen counters. He was arrested and posted $12k bail. Benzino’s legal team argued the search was illegal, but a judge ruled cops searched the pad legally.

Benzino’s legal team will learn today, Wednesday, 12-12-18 in court when the case is headed to trial … which could be as soon as next month, if he doesn’t cop a plea.

If convicted, Benzino could face up to 15 years behind bars.

Couples Court” is in session and Hip Hop Media mogul Raymond “Benzino” Scott is serving up advice to a couple from New Jersey whose relationship is on the brink of decimation.

In the clip above from Thursday’s episode, Benzino admits to relationship mistakes, as his romantic life has been well documented. He and ex-fiancée/baby mama Althea Heart were one of ‘L&HH Atlanta’s most tumultuous couples.

Earlier this year, Heart scored a major court victory against Benzino when his paternity suit against her was dismissed “due to him not showing up to court and not continuing with his lawsuit.”

According to theJasmineBRAND.com, the conflict between the two first started when the former rapper sued Heart over their son, Zino, claiming he needed the court to find him to be the biological father of the child.

“I’ve been in situations where cheating has occurred,” he tells Couples Court.

Watch the clip above and hear what he says when asked what he learned about himself after getting caught.
