Erica Mena has issued a public apology to Christy Mahone.
You may recall, after Erica and Safaree’s home was robbed in May, the “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star blasted Christy on Instagram and accused her of having her stolen property.
Erica posted a photo of Christy with the caption:
So this stripper “Christy Mahone” is now allegedly wearing my jewelry and has all my purses. She has involvement with one of the robbers, one being @Charleefamous.
Girl be smart and give up all my belongings. If anyone knows her please contact me. I got a cash reward on her as well. $10,000 in cash to anyone who can lead me to the arrest of this woman as well.
Christy took to social media to respond to Erica Mena, writing:
I WORK HARD FOR ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING I HAVE , I DO NOT HAVE YOUR JEWELRY NOR YOUR PURSES. I DONT GET DOWN LIKE THAT BABE . I DONT KNOW WHERE YOU GOT THIS INFORMATION FROM BUT ITS FALSE ASF !! TAG @iamerica_mena MY PAGE WILL REMAIN PUBLIC !!”
Erica deleted her original post, but the damage was already done.
On Tuesday, Erica issued a public apology to Christy writing:
Last May, after our home was burglarized and some of my property stolen, I was informed by a number of sources that an individual named Christy Mahone had been seen in possession of my stolen property under circumstances that suggested she know it was stolen, and I posted statements to that effect on my Instagram account.
I have since learned that the information I received about Ms. Mahone was not accurate and so I wish to now take this opportunity to restrict my earlier assertions concerning Ms. Mahone.
To be clear, I no longer have any reason to believe that Christy Mahone was ever in possession of property she knew to be stolen from me, or that she had anything at all to do, directly or indirectly, with the robbery of our home.
I apologize to Ms. Mahone.

This apology screams, “Please don’t sue me,” and it appears that may be the case.
Christy took to Instagram to respond to the apology writing:
I am aware of the apology from Erica, I have nothing to say.
Please contact my Attorney for any further conversation Lela Schmidt (770) 693 2067 . God Bless 🙏🏾🙌🏾

Welp. You can make public accusations like that about folks all willy nilly.
