The majority of “Love & Hip Hop” New York cast have reportedly gone on strike and are refusing to show up to the set to film the trailer for the new season.
The scoop is many of the cast members are unhappy with their contracts, money, airtime, and the way they’ve been portrayed on the show.
Sources close to the show tell us, all cast members were supposed to be present Tuesday in NYC to film a trailer for the upcoming season, but only half of the cast showed up. The other half stayed home in protest because negotiations for their new contracts had gone sour.
We’re told the half that did show up then got upset … believing they too were entitled to revised contracts … and stormed off.
We’re told most of the cast members want more money — as much as double their last contract — but there are other problems too … some are pissed at how they were portrayed last season and they want more say in what footage gets aired.
We’re told emergency meetings have since been called with the angry cast members … and they’re hoping to get what they want by the end of the week.

The powers that be are fully aware of this…that’s why they’ve added K. Michelle to the cast in hopes of reviving the failed ratings.
At the end of the day, let’s not forget everyone signed contracts…some of those contracts are up to three seasons. The last thing the cast members need is litigation in their lives.
