Memphitz Suing Creators And Producers Of Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta Over K. Michelle Beatdown Allegations

Submitted by on September 5, 2012 – 11:30 amOne Comment

K. Michelle‘s domestic violence plot line on VH1′s Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta may end up costing the creators and producers of the show a lot of money. The R&B songbird spent most of the premiere season of the show putting her ex-boyfriend on blast for beating her down while they were together. Although she never named the ex-boyfriend on any of the episodes, it’s no secret that the ex in question is Mickey “Memphitz” Wright, who dated K when she was signed to Jive Records, where he worked as an executive.

Memphitz, who’s now married to Lil Wayne’s ex-wife, Toya Carter Wright, has denied the allegations on many occasions. But reportedly, the Tennessee native is taking things a step further by filing a lawsuit against the creators and producers of the show. Memphitz said in a statement (via Its Only Entertainment):

“My family and I have suffered tremendously while VH-1, Monami Ent., and the other companies provided a worldwide platform for K. Michelle to repeatedly assassinate my character. The filing of this suit is to compensate for the irreparable damage that has been done to my reputation and to deter these companies from doing such future harm to others.”

According to a statement released by MediaHunterPR, Memphitz “is suing the named Defendants for approximately one dollar per viewer per show for damages that stem from the defamatory statements and denigrating actions of cast member Kimberly Michelle Pate p/k/a ‘K. Michelle’”. Viacom International, Inc.; NFGTV, Inc.; and Monami Entertainment, LLC. will be listed as defendants in the lawsuit.
