K. Michelle Responds To Memphitz Lawsuit, Plans To Take Him To Court


K. Michelle could care less about her ex-boyfriend, Mickey “Memphitz” Wright Jr., filing a lawsuit over allegations that he abused her. While the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star was not named in the legal documents, Wright is seeking compensation from the show’s producer Mona Scott-Young’s Monami Entertainment company, Viacom International, VH1 and other parties involved for allegedly slandering his name.

In response to the suit, Michelle told TMZ that she is sticking by her story. “I’ve always been told that the truth shall set you free. I stand behind my story 100 percent,” she said. “I came on the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta show mainly because I wanted to give a voice and bring light to a very serious issue.”

Throughout the season, Michelle spoke on being physically abused, but never mentions Wright by name.“I am very grateful to VH1 and Monami Ent. for the opportunity to tell my story, and touch lives worldwide,” she continued. “I look forward to having my day in court and finally having the truth of my story confirmed in a court of law.

“Hopefully others will not have to go through this and then have their stories challenged to this degree because people now want to try to salvage whatever reputation they may have had.”

Michelle has intentions of taking Memphitz to court, and has hired attorney Matt Middleton.

  • WOW K.MICHELLE …I hope you saved your RECIEPTS!

  • honeybhustle

    Okay was she abused ? Was she in an abusive relationship ? Was she a battered woman ? Or was it a one time incident where he tried to leave her, she got aggressive and he beat her up and left ?

    • I think she was in a abusive relationship and when he tried to leave he beat her up because in his interview he stated that she was constantly being embarrassing in meetings and all she was suppose to do was what he told her too which was to just sing. So I think when she didn’t he hit her…

  • oh STFU. was you there? was any of your asses there? ok so then stfu. please.

  • This article was posted 09/05/2012 and Memphitz supposedly filed a lawsuit on 09/04/2012. K. Michelle didn’t just start telling what happened. Defamation of character lawsuit is only admissible if what the plaintiff is alleged of isn’t true. Why wait so long to file suit? Money can’t be why because he could’ve still sued her and just let her be in debt.
