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.
