Who is Bobby Lyte’s father?

Bobby’s father’s name is unknown, however, we do know that growing up, his father struggled with drug addiction, ended up in prison multiple times, and that he does not have a close relationship with him.

His father is currently in prison, and during the trailer for the next episode of Love & Hip Hop, we see a conversation with Bobby Lytes where he is told that the prison is letting inmates out who have committed non-violent offences.

Bobby is told to get a lawyer, to which he questions: “If I get a lawyer? First of all, lawyers are expensive.”

LAHH fans react to the scene

The Love & Hip Hop: Miami clip has got fans talking…

There has been some hate and speculation towards Bobby, as to why he would not pay for a lawyer for his own father.

On Love & Hip Hop’s Instagram comments for their latest trailer, many users have a lot to say on the topic.

One commented: “That’s crazy he said that, lawyers are expensive indeed but no price [is too] expensive to have my father free.”

However, others have stuck up for Bobby. A viewer said: “Bobby probably says the thing about the lawyer cause he felt like his dad wasn’t there for him so why should he pay for the lawyer.”

Another fan added: “We don’t know how close he was with his father for us to be speaking without info.”
