K. Michelle, Memphitz: Singer Points Finger at Abusive Music Executive
Singer K. Michelle, once an artist signed to an Jive Records deal, has opened up about an abusive relationship she experienced while dating a music executive. Though she doesn’t name the man who “beat her ass,” the “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star hints that she was dealt blows by the hands of former Jive Records A&R Mickey “Memphitz” Wright.
In the premiere episode of the reality show, K. Michelle gives details on her $2 million record deal with Jive, which she landed through her lover’s help. However, the high sum was spent fast when her boyfriend bought himself jewelry and paid for her breast implants using the money.
With little money left, the chanteuse admits the music exec became abusive and left her for another woman. She eventually found herself with nothing, saying the man had become abusive and left for her for another woman.
The woman in question is reportedly Lil Wayne’s ex-wife Toya Carter, who is now married to Memphitz.
