Before joining the cast of ‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta‘, Rasheeda stood tall as an influential fixture in Atlanta’s thriving Urban music scene and supported the careers of newcomers who would go on to become globally recognised household name (see Ciara‘s ‘Goodies‘).
Unfortunately, recent years have seen her contributions to her culture diminished and overlooked by a new generation of spectators who know her primarily as being the long-suffering wife of fellow ‘Love & Hip Hop‘ cast member Kirk Frost.
This week she was forced to defend her marriage on social media when one concerned fan quizzed her on the union.
Full story below…
The drama kicked off when fans noticed that Rasheeda’s Wikipedia page explained that she has been married to Frost since 1999….the year he turned 30 and she turned 17.
The drama erupted on social media when one fan took to the rapper’s page to ask the couple to explain the large age gap.

She responded to the fan by explaining that she was not 17 in the year she wed with the entrepreneur and had no interested in being married at the time because she was still in high school at the time.
Unfortunately, this explanation led fans to believe that she lied about her age, and saw fans urge her to disclose her real age to protect her husband from the intense criticism he is currently facing from social media users who believe he targeted her when she was in the 12th grade.
Daaamnnn I didnt know Rasheeda and Kirk were 14 years apart in age. Wow!

I wonder if the age difference in Kirk and Rasheeda is ever going to be questioned… because he definitely got her pregnant when she was 17 and he was 30.

I honestly believe this is an R. Kelly & Azriel type situation. Rasheeda started making music in 1997 (age 15) in a girl group called Da Kaperz and I believe her mom allowed Kirk to adopt her for career purposes. https://t.co/6kCSLCJDi0
