K.Michelle went into detail about the night she and MeMpHiTz Wright got into a brutal fight.
The "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star dropped by "The Breakfast Club" on Power 105.1 to chat it up with the crew, and it was no surprise when MeMpHiTz’s name popped up in the conversation.
Lately, K.Michelle has been trading jabs with MeMpHiTz’s wife Toya Wright, and the singer understands why she’s fighting so hard for her husband. What K.Michelle did suggest is that Toya keep her comments to herself because they are somewhat uninformed. "It’s okay to be ride-or-die for your man, but you gotta know what you’re riding for. You wasn’t around me," the singer said.
On the premiere of "LHHA," K.Michelle dropped the bomb that she had been beaten by an unidentified ex-boyfriend. The public later surmised that MeMpHiTz was the attacker in question, but up until now, details were limited. K.Michelle simply said that he beat her, while MeMpHiTz has admitted only that he restrained her.
This morning, though, K.Michelle gave a blow-by-blow of their battle. When she first got with MeMpHiTz, she didn’t want to admit that they were dating to others in the industry because she wanted to stand out for her talent alone, but she was very excited about the relationship and what it meant for her career.
"I’m like, ‘Yeah, this is it. I’m on my way. This is my Tommy Motola. It’s time to go,’" said K.Michelle, who was reminded that things didn’t exactly work out for Tommy and Mariah either. "At least Mariah got a Grammy first before it fell apart."
At first, K.Michelle thought MeMpHiTz was her knight in shining armor, but things went left when they started to bump heads about what she needed to do to make it.
"It got so intense. Honestly, I never was saying that he was a bad person. I knew he had anger issues, but at the same time I also knew his background," she stated, adding that some of those issues stem from the fact that he has no clue where his murdered father was buried.
But, as K.Michelle remembers, he went off when they locked horns about a gig that she was holding up because of some technical problems.
“We were having a normal argument and it would get more and more intense. We were fighting about a performance,” K.Michelle recalled, explaining that she at one point refused to get on stage until a sound issue had been fixed. “He’s the boss, I’m already big-mouthed and it just got, ‘Okay. I’m tired of this b**ch.’ You gotta be real about it. I wasn’t sitting there innocent. I never said that, but I didn’t hit you first."
As K.Michelle recalls, MeMpHiTz didn’t just smack her. “I was smothered with a towel. You smothered me, you hit me in my head with a [water] bottle, I was bruised up.” she revealed. "It was nothing small; I was bruised up, I was bleeding. I think what shocked me the most was the smothering. I was climbing, crawling to get out the door.”
She said that she had nearly escaped when MeMpHiTz pulled her back into the fray. "He did it again. He yanked me. I had carpet burns," K.Michelle said, adding that the executive had blacked out during the beating. "I was looking at him in his face, and it didn’t look like him."
After that fight, things got even worse as he continued to harass her while she was making the promotional rounds to get her name on the national radar. She even accuses MeMpHiTz of going so far as to threaten to kill her son.
