Memphitz Responds to K Michelle’s Abuse Allegations; Says He NEVER Hit Her … He Only RESTRAINED Her When She Attacked Him!

Last Monday on the season premiere of “Love and Hip-Hop: Atlanta” over three million viewers watched as singer K Michelle recalled her “abusive relationship” with her ex boyfriend, who she claimed “beat her a**” (her words) after spending up her seed money from the record label.

That so-called abusive boyfriend turned out to be Mickey “Memphitz” Wright, husband of BET reality star (and Lil Wayne’s ex-wife) Toya Wright, which K Michelle confirmed in a radio interview last week, saying that she didn’t mention his name on the show on purpose out of respect for him and his new wife.

On Monday (Jun 25), Memphitz called in to TT Torrez at iPower 92.1, and told his side of the story, explaining how he and K. Michelle met, their “relationship,” and how he has NEVER put his hands on her in the way that she alleged on the show. (He says he didn’t hit her … he only restrained her when she attacked him)

Check out the excerpts (via Necole Bitchie) below:

On mixing business with pleasure and getting intimate with his artist — K. Michelle:

I have to take blame. One on one time with this pretty girl, she do music and I do music and she was making me laugh. It was innocent and it was cool. It was my fault too. I can’t say K. Michelle just came and whatever, but yeah I shouldn’t have done that either, as a young CEO.

I was very very fond of K. I wasn’t in love with her like she seemed to be in love with me. She used to come over my house, I used to go over her house.

On the alleged fight and how it started:

I listen to music every day. We in Memphis. This guy, I don’t know him, people came to me and said, ‘this is the OG, he has something he wants you to hear’. I said, ‘Fine’. He got a girl. She singing. I’m sitting listening to the girl in the car, and [K. Michelle] says, ‘Oh hell naw! Cut that sh-t off. Ain’t no b-tch getting signed to this label. I’m the only b-tch on this label.’ I’m apologizing to people and I just got tired of apologizing to people.

This is the day I broke up with her in the hotel. I get back to the room. I was like “Yo for real? That was the last night.” This is after multiple times of embarrassing me in front of people, relationships I’ve made over the years from being an intern nobody knows in New York on my own from Memphis [type] relationships. My whole livelihood. I’m taking her places thinking, you’re gonna do what I told you to do when we were making the plan, just sing. Just sing! This particular day, after this situation happened, I go up to the room where she’s at […]My friends take her back to the room so I can finish having this meeting with the guy after I had to apologize severely for what just happened. I get up to the room and I’m like, “Yo for real that is the last time you embarrass me, I’m done!” That ain’t my swag, that ain’t who I am.

All of a sudden, I see it for the first time: the Tasmanian Devil, start swinging, throwing stuff at me. I’m like “What the f— is going on?” I’m trying to get to the door, blocking punches, I’m trying to explain to the housekeeping ladies, “Y’all call somebody,” ’cause she’s throwing stuff out the window. […] I grabbed her, grabbed her arm, I’m tired of taking a thousand swinging punches from a girl. Yes I grabbed her and held her arm down from hitting my a– again, and she was screaming and screaming. I covered her mouth because she was screaming so loud, people were knocking on the ceiling, I was like “Stop, what are you doing? Do you see yourself? Are you crazy?’

After the whole police thing, I just stopped talking to K. Michelle. I told her in front of the police, ‘I have never been in the same room with a female and the police at the same time, and this will be my last. I don’t get down like that.’

She was abused before, it just wasn’t me. I can’t be your muse anymore. You want to argue with me so you can go write a hit. You want to defame my character so you can get fans and write a hit. I can’t lay down for that one.

On the ‘I Made You’ comment he made on Instagram/Twitter:

I know that stung people. First of all, I will apologize to anyone who took that in an offensive manner. What I was saying was I didn’t create K Michelle. I did not give her her voice. It came from God […] What I’m saying is, when you got to me, you were very pretty, but once we started doing that thing I was saying, we were talking what should we do? We should fix that, and we should fix that […] Yes I put you together in a form for the industry, I put you together. […] I knew it was gonna sting, because look what you just said about me? That’s a lie.

On K. Michelle’s “$2 million dollar deal” and her allegations that he spent all of her advance money:

Unless you have a substantial amount of heat on you in the streets, it is far-fetched to say any new artist receives 2 million dollars on a deal. She got signed for around $500,000. Then after re-forcasting, I said we have to fix this, this and this. (referring to upgrading her assets). I was given money to run my label but I never touch an artist’s situation. When they get the deal, a part of that deal is for recording, mixing and all of that. Another part of their deal is for them to take care of themselves. A&R’s don’t have access to the artist money, you submit a budget and the label gives you that budget if they approve it.

On why his label folded and why he no longer works at JIVE:

I was trying to be a one man show. It was certain things. Like K going up to the office and telling the label that I hit her…

Memphitz also said that the only reason K. Michelle didn’t say his name on TV was because he had his lawyers call up VH1 and told them unless K. could prove that he abused her, he would sue the show if his name was mentioned at all.

Whose side of the story do you believe?


  • Lextacy94

    i don’t know them, but i believe he hit her. he’s kinda stuttering. maybe not on that level? but…..he touched her.

  • sweepitup

    Helll YEEEEEEE!!!!




  • Teda Dean

    He didn’t hit her ass! She’s sprung and jealous! I’ve been in an abusive relationship and this is not a man that beats women! I believe his story! K. Michelle fall back! Truth is she’s mad

  • Sweetness

    I believe him. She upset he moved on, she already admitted that she was madly in love with him. Now she want to make a hit and what better way than to make people feel sorry for you. She has a pretty voice and should know she doesn’t have to disfame someone to get to the top.

  • amina

    i fell bad for k .Michelle

  • denise davis

    I think he’s telling the true.. he’s all about family values so I respect him for that….. http:/

    • People change to become a better person everyday. So just because we see him being nice, respectful and family oriented now doesn’t mean he was always this way. At first i assumed she was exaggerating but I’m not sure who to believe now…you just never really know

  • Bebe

    I believe there are some truths and some lies in what the both of them are saying.

  • Yodit

    I want to believe K Michelle,however not knowing neither one of them personally but judging from the image portrayed on TV,K Michelle is a ghetto unfabulous drama hood rat. She is a disgrace to any real woman with class. She has a nice voice but that ghetto mentality takes so much away from her natural talent. k Michelle take some classes in charm school.

  • blessed all the Time

    Are u serious. What man do u honestly will admit to putting his hands on any woman for everyone who’s making comments please take off the sunglasses. I believe he put his hands on her who wants to admit some (man ) i use that loosely has ruined you n the ground. Wake up people! !!!!

    • Teri

      What woman is honestly going to admit she lied, I base what I beleive on the history of the indivdual.

  • Fierce&Fabulous1

    K.Michelle is crazy!! look at how she acts on L?ve and HipHop…that broad needs to be committed. I believe Memphis

  • If he hit her police would have arrested him. If he beat her ass she would have marks on her, the way she said he beat her. Don’t believe her. she not a punk like she said on love and hip hop.

  • Esha

    I believe he didn’t touch her…he would’ve went to jail….she lookin for sympathy

    • babsfreedom

      that is a really bad and defaming way to get a sympathy vote for k. michelle. i feel that she is telling the truth because no one wants to be known as an abused person even when they have been abused. that is a hard thing to admit to to your family and friends and much less to the public. but if she is lying and doing this all for money, that is pretty sick. the whole situation is just down right pathetic. i hope we get the truth one day.

  • Visionary

    K. Michelle has proven on the show that she has no self control! She flys off the handle for any little thing, and I am more inclined to believe Memphitz because she does act crazy!

  • its easy for people to sit there and say he didnt do it and that shes lying…..but only k.michelle and memphitz know the truth. The only thing anyone can do is speculate. Truth be told, NO man likes to be known in the public eye as an abusive man. So OF COURSE he will deny it to the end. But like i said, i dont know whos telling the truth so i rather not even say shes telling the truth or hes telling the truth cause honestly, only k michelle and memphitz will ever know the whole truth. Theres alot of judgmental people assuming sh*t they have no clue about.

    • babsfreedom

      NO woman wants to be known as being abused. So, I really can’t believe she is lying. Also, if it weren’t true, he can sue her for at least slander and he is not. There is something there that just doesn’t seem right. She can’t be making this up because if she is she deserve an Oscar for her great acting.

  • Tracye

    I really don’t know what to believe. But u can’t tell a woman beater like that. My exhusband looked like he wasn’t like that. But I was wrong about him. He was crazy. And K. Michelle is a little nutty but I like her. So I’m really on the fence.

  • blsmooth23

    Only those two know the truth. You can’t judge K because she has a temper and acts crazy… maybe she just became that way because of what happened to her and that’s her way of coping with it.

  • ladylove

    first off let me say that all people talk about is how not to be judgemental but thats all yall seem to be doing now let me pointt this out when u talk about o how not to b judge mental and then turn around and say yea cuz she crazy is judge mental point blank now no one can say she was or she wasnt but something happen shes too emotional for it not ,but we will never know the truth when its one against the other u cant help but to understand where shes coming from when your on the other side telling that same all you who say he did or didnt shut the fuck up because in reality you really dont know

  • ladylove

    when your in the industry you really cant trust no one so when you are there with your boyfriend and he spend up all yo money and you dont even have enough to make yo career happen after he leaves that means he left you with nothing just fucked you ova and left at that point its not about being crazy its about being pissed and i think every body knows what being pissed feels like

  • TayTay

    His ass did it i dont give a fuck what anybody said you can tell he lien by the way he talk he make no damn sence he cant even tell his story right so fuck that nigga he a woman beater poin blank

  • donnelle

    I was not there, so I am not taking sides, but every story has three sides, your side, my side and the truth. His side sounds credible because from what I see portrayed by K.Michelle on the show, she is always loud and aggressive, looking to start something. I don’t like her at all because of this. She never wants to discuss anything coolly, always loud, aggressive and arrogant.

  • Vanessa John

    Sorry but she is not in it for pitty… Serioulsy you think she will make up this story , emotional and all. She don’t need fame and all of that.. And Memp.. is not that hot for her to be sprung. I personally was married at 18 got abused from him and left. But i am scared because i usually try to hit him… because of me being in that situation….of my husband .. So it’s her scares.

    • Teri

      Lawd…………. Have you ever heard of a hurt woman, who has no fury. K Michele is hurt you can see it in eyes

  • Guest

    I believe him. He should sue her for lying on him and slandering his name.

  • Teri

    I beleive Memphitz, I love K Michele, but she is a fire cracker ready to explored, she does get into fight alot on the show with everybody.

  • Teri

    If Memphitz did what K Michele claims why did`nt the police arrest him????

  • Rayshawn

    I love k Michelle and I believe her and everybody that don’t can kiss her ass bitches

  • Did anyone else notice the tone of how he said you’re gonna do what I tell you to do?If he had his friends take her to the room where were they when she was throwing punches?If he got to the door to tell housekeeping to call somebody why didn’t he just leave?He was at the door.If she is hitting you then why are you covering her mouth to keep her from screaming?I read another interview he gave and there is no mention of his friends being around.He also said they never lived together and then turned around and said she stayed with him in Atlanta.I wasn’t there,but his story keeps changing and hers seems to be consistent.

  • kaniya

    yall shouldnt leave comments cause yall wasnt there

  • k michele fan

    For all the people who are saying if he hit her then the police would have arrested him. If he is saying that she hit him and was throwing things out of the window why wasnt she arrested. Women do go to jail on dv charges too. Ijs
