Things are about to get interesting on Love & Hip Hop Hollywood.

The hit series returns for season two on September 7, and when it does, a gay couple will have joined the cast.

VH1 teased the following storyline in its Love & Hip Hop Hollywood press release:

This season of “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” will explore one of the most complex relationships in franchise history. Miles, a west coast rapper, who was raised with church values bravely faces his truth, when he realizes he’s in love with Milan, an openly gay man. The struggle becomes complicated for Miles because his best friend and childhood sweetheart, Amber, is still in love with him. The season follows Miles and Milan’s difficult and emotional journey as they deal with the stigmas often associated with intimate relationships between black men in the music industry.

Although Miles has been dubbed the rapper in their relationship, Milan Christopher also raps, and according to TMZ, cast members are refusing to film with him (Milan) because he’s gay.

Per TMZ:

The newest member of “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood” believes he’s being shunned by cast members because they don’t want to share the small screen with an openly gay rapper.

Milan Christopher has been filming for 3 weeks, but we’re told the majority of rappers on the show are shunning him. Rappers on the show include Ray J, Soulja Boy, Omarion and Mally Mall.

We’re told a number of the rappers are upset with producers for hiring Milan … not because he’s gay but because he has no cred in the rap game. They believe producers hired Milan as a “sideshow” and a “circus” to goose ratings.

Milan, who calls himself a rapper/model, has worked with big rappers, but mostly as a writer.

We’re told at least 3 of the rappers on the show have made it clear to producers … they don’t want to film scenes with Milan. They won’t show up to parties or other events where Milan is present.

The rappers say they want nothing to do with Milan because he’s a joke, but we’re told Milan’s made it clear to producers the other rappers have made their feelings about gay rappers obvious.

No word on whether cast members refuse to film with Miles as well.
