Another fake boyfriend scandal is rocking The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s upcoming eighth season now that Amiyah Scott has been accused of exaggerating her relationship with hairstylist Kellon Deryck.
The transgender model has been gushing about her relationship with Deryck on Instagram for months -- even before her name was recently added to the list of possible RHOA Season 8 cast members!
Deryck accompanied her to the launch party for Kenya Moore’s haircare line on August 17, where she spotted hanging with the RHOA ladies for the first time.
But according to reports, Deryck is actually just Scott’s best friend and they aren’t really romantically involved.

The reports added that Scott asked her bestie to play as her boyfriend in order to make her story more appealing to the show's producers.
Talk of Scott’s reported relationship fakery isn’t a surprise though, seeing that Moore is also facing claims that she is faking her romance with Eugene Casciaro.
Moore has yet to respond to the talk she may have cast a new boo for RHOA’s Season 8. However, Scott appeared to slam the questions regarding her love life when she gave Deryck a loving birthday shoutout this week on Instagram!
