Season 5 of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood Season 5 won't lack drama, as shown in the extended sneak peek trailer. Just about everyone on the cast is catching the heat this season. We've highlighted some of the biggest controversies to expect on LHHH when it debuts Monday.

Ray J and Princess Love combat rumors: After spending nearly all of Season 4 struggling to conceive, Ray and his wife Princess' prayers are answered when they find out they're expecting a baby girl. It doesn't take long for the couple's joy to turn sour when Moniece, Princess' biggest rival, starts spreading rumors that Princess isn't actually carrying her baby, but suggest Ray's sister—star singer Brandy Norwood—is serving as the newlywed's surrogate. Things only intensify for the couple when a six-month pregnant Princess starts questioning Ray's faithfulness later in the season.

Lyrica faces adultery rumors: Ray isn't the only LHHH star facing cheating accusations. Singer Lyrica is also in the hot seat with her husband and producer A1 when Brooke Valentine and K. Michelle start singing tunes of Lyrica's alleged "side [dude]," which may or may not be A1's longtime friend Safaree. We're guessing Lyrica's denial of the claims isn't enough for A1, who is featured in the trailer jumping on tables and starting fights with Safaree when he confronts him about the rumors. Of course, when Lyrica's mom—also named Lyrica—and A1's mom Pam catch wind of all the cheating allegations, only more fist fights and arguments will ensue.

Teairra Mari's private sex tape goes public: The new man Teairra believed was her prince charming turns out to be nothing but a frog after she learns he may be behind the internet leak of a few lewd photos as well as a video of her performing sexual acts. Only heightening her heartbreak, Teairra's new beau turns out to be a married man and has another female on the side. He claims in the trailer he "invests in women," including Teairra. "I add value to you. You been through all these broken relationships and look at you now," he tells her.

K. Michelle becomes Kimberly: After first gaining fame on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta in 2012, K. Michelle makes her grand return to the Love & Hip Hop franchise—but this time, she's the new and improved Kimberly. The singer's storyline will share her journey after having butt implants removed and follows her efforts to dispel the aggressive and combative perceptions people have about her. Although she's trying to be a better role model and stay out of the drama by uplifting women and spreading body positivity, her philanthropic dedication will be put to the test when she clashes with Lyrica.

Love & Hip Hop Hollywood Season 5 premieres on VH1 at 8 p.m. ET on Monday.
