AceShowbiz - Tommie Lee celebrated the Fourth of July with freedom. The "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star finally got out of jail on Thursday with her family throwing a welcome home party for the reality TV star.
Tommie, who was put in jail for beating her daughter at her school, took to her Instagram account to share a short clip of her inside a car seemingly on her way back home. She looked all glam in a plunging white-and-red outfit and a matching veil. "So thankful," she wrote in the video.
Another video saw her family and friends welcoming her at a party. the words "big sis home. celebrationns," flickered on the screen. Tommie, whose real name is Atasha Jefferson, later came to the screen before flashing a smile at the camera.
"I pray she comes home and focus on rebuilding herself and her relationship with her children," an Instagram user wrote in the comment section under The Shade Room's post. "Now don't get locked up again," another one added.
While previous comments saw people wishing her the best and being optimistic about her changing for the better, some others were the exact opposite. Assuming that she wouldn't have her freedom for so long, one critic said, "We'll see how long she can stay out this time. At this point im convinced she likes being locked up." One other wrote, "She going back in 3...2...1...."
The VH1 previously pleaded guilty to one count of cruelty to children in the first degree, three counts of simple battery, family violence and one count of disrupting public school. The terms of the probation restrict her from having any violent contact with a child, traveling outside the state of Georgia without written approval and attending work and promotional events where drugs or alcohol are present.
The star was also given an 11 P.M. curfew and must pay a $1,000 fine in addition to submitting to random drug and alcohol testing. According to the publication, the VH1 star has been attending the program.
Tommie was arrested last fall after she shoved her daughter's head in a locker when she went to the girl's middle school and disrupted the class. The indictment document further stated that she slapped her daughter on the hands with her purse strap and also slapped her across the face. She was charged with felony aggravated assault, battery and child cruelty. She initially faced 54 years in prison.
Last month, the reality TV star was arrested for appearing drunk in court for a hearing of the child abuse case. Issuing an apology for her behavior, she said in a statement, "I've been working really hard through my problems considering the challenges that's been set before me since I've been home. I've done all that I can do on my own shake my habits but I do realize that I need help and I am currently seeking treatment."
