The premiere of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta this week contained a pretty surprising accusation on the part of one cast member, singer K. Michelle.
K. Michelle didn’t actually mention her alleged domestic abuser by name, but dropped enough hints that the Twitterverse was buzzing about who it was.
Mickey “Memphitz” Wright.
Memphitz is a music executive at Jive records and is also married to Lil’ Wayne’s ex-wife, Toya. He was also one of the hosts for BET’s show The Deal.
That show also starred Nicki Minaj’s DJ, Diamond Kutz. Anyway, K. Michelle said she was in a violent relationship with the man who signed her at Jive.
Specifically, she said “beat her ass.”
K. Michelle said he “blacked out” on her with physical abuse during their relationship, then blew her entire recording budget on toys and chains for himself.
For her part, Toya, who is currently in Paris with Memphitz celebrating their one-year wedding anniversary, re-tweeted a comment in defense of Memphitz.
She also calls K. Michelle a “hater.”
