Erica Dixon Explains Breakup with O’Shea
When O’Shea Russell stepped into Love and Hip Hop Atlanta star Erica Dixon life, he possessed a lot of qualities that she appreciated, but when it came to providing for his woman, the model didn’t meet her expectations.
CelebNMusic247.com has got the tea on why Erica had to let O’Shea Da Model go. If you were watching Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, Erica revealed that O’Shea was in a car accident that left him unable to work for a while, but once his body healed, he seemed content letting her continue as the breadwinner in the relationship.
Erica told VH1.com:
“He broke his leg in three places and he had to get several surgeries and I was there to support him, but I just feel like once he got back on his feet, he just lost that drive and ambition to be a man and take care of his woman and his kids.”
“I’m definitely there to pick you up and help put the pieces all back together, but it was like O’Shea never wanted to put it back together,” she said. “It was like everything was on me.”
On a recent episode of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, Erica refused to give O’Shea gas money after the two argued and he attempted a dramatic exit from their residence. Unfortunately he ran out of gas and had to call her for money, but the two got into a fight because he wanted money for gas.
Erica said she didn’t have to worry about that when dating Lil Scrappy:
“At first you don’t really think about it because you’re in a relationship. Then, it just got to the point where it’s like, ‘Let me know beforehand and not after we’re out and we done had fun.’ Finally, I got to the point where I’m like, ‘You’re my man and you’re supposed to be the provider.”
The things Dixon appreciated most about O’Shea was that he did not drink or smoke like Scrappy, she adds:
“He didn’t have anything altering him that made him do something he wouldn’t normally do.”
Despite O’Shea’s redeeming qualities, it seemingly came down to the almighty dollar, and it was money that caused a rift between him and Erica.
“I definitely feel like a man should be the provider in a relationship.”
“It wasn’t just O’Shea. It’s O’Shea and his three kids and then it’s my daughter of course. I only have one child. I would’ve had four other kids to take care of, and I wasn’t ready for all that.
Would you date O’Shea if he was just a hot guy with no money?
