No He Didn’t! Memphitz Responds To Abuse Rumors By Reminding K. Michelle He ‘Made’ Her

In response to K. Michelle’s accusation that Memphitz abused her while they were dating, the music executive took to Instagram and indadvertedly lended a serious amount of credibility to her story.

In case you have no clue who these people are: K. Michelle is a singer and castmember on VH1’s new hit show “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta”. Mickey “Memphitz” Wright is a music executive and just celebrated his first wedding anniversary with Toya Carter Wright (Lil Wayne’s ex-wife and the “Toya” of BET’s Tiny and Toya). 

As we explained yesterday, “the back story is K. used to date Memphitz before he married Toya and though K. Michelle didn’t name names, she did disclose on the premiere that she used to be in love with a man who helped her get a $2 million dollar record deal but said he eventually ‘beat her a**’ and left her with nothing.”

Memphitz was celebrating his anniversary in Paris when the show aired, but they don’t call it the World Wide Web for nothing. As Bossip reported: the music exec responded to the accusations via Instagram posting a photo of Pinocchio and saying:

As I was installing the Teeth, T**ties, & A** you’re Flaunting, I forgot to tell you about the Growing Nose I threw in Pinocchio. Lol. @kmichelle I made you. -Mr. Gepetto

To which K. Michelle responded via Twitter (of course):

A persons true colors will always show. Never fight a battle that God already won for u. I’m still standing.

First of all, someone needs to tell Memphitz that telling a woman you “made” her makes you sound like a psycho, woman beater. Granted, K. Michelle could have let sleeping dogs lie, but her past is part of her story and she is free to talk about it. Domestic violence is serious and instead of Memphitz showing any type of remorse for what he did, he so arrogantly continues to dogg her on a public forum. Who does that? K. Michelle definitely took a road higher than most by skipping the opportunity to insinuate that Toya is with the same Memphitz she was. But with a response like that, it’s hard to believe he’s changed very much.

What do you think about the K. Michelle/Memphitz situation?

Like K Michell said he can only pretend for so long. l pray for Toya God keep her.

  • cakke it

    I think diss is so childish people stop worrin about other peoples buizzness and grow up

  • cakke it

    I dont believe k.michelle she look like a lying i think she jealousy cause toya ot the ring before she did.

  • ronzell.wilkerson@yahoo.com

    I been hit by a boyfriend b4 it’s nothing to lie about.These situations are embarrassing K probably held it in so long,and feel she finally doing things on her own in she’s at a point. In her life where she know who she is.I think she’s brave letting it out Memphis felt he made her/owned her,,,,living proof she shamed the devil…..Keep yo head up K…. abuse is embarrassing.

  • Jbobbb

    From what I have seen of KM on love and hip hop I can see KM going ape on someone too! We really don’t know their story.

  • Jbobbb

    That’s not fair to put down Toya because of the situation! What we know is that this Memphis guy wants to have the floor!!! For hIm to say what he did about K M he spent have respect for his arriage. He should have kept quiet!!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Tiffanie-MadameGigglez-Thomas/665285721 Tiffanie MadameGigglez Thomas

    I mean her story says so much more than anything… i agree with K… and STILL she is standing. *boo-boop*

  • MrzB

    I DONT REALLY THINK TOYA KNEW ABOUT ALL OF THIS TILL RECENTLY, SOME GUYS WON’T TELL ALL THINGS AND THERE’S NO TELLING WHAT HE HAS TOLD HER ABOUT THE SITUATION SO PPL CAN’T REALLY SAY TOYA HAS BAD JUDGEMENT OR SHE’S STUPID BC WE ALL ARE HUMAN AND NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE. SHE’S BEEN THRU ALOT SO WHO ARE WE TO EVEN HAVE AN OPINION ABOUT SOMETHING WE DON’T EVEN ALL THE DETAILS ABOUT.

  • Disgusted male

    I am a successful businessman and I really don’t follow many artist. I came across this as a back story. I do feel for that young lady, but I know she is telling the truth. No man responds with such arrogance and no man responds in a fashion in which he does not call her a liar, just uses insinuation. Ladies who are reading this please stop dating idiots, success in the business world does not equate to morality or being a decent man.

  • Kia

    Does she has any proof that he beat her? Wery there any marks on her? There is always two sides to a story and if she was going to tell the story she should of said his name but she couldn’t because his lawyers put a stop to it. If this man beat u why wait to now to air all this out this is something that should of been out!

  • BabaPuppe

    What’s so weird is, she never even mentioned his name or gave specifics on him so he would’ve been the last person I figured she was talking about… Until he posted that disgusting message on instagram. Memphitz is just terrible, but he’ll get his. K. Michelle seems like a sweet woman and nothing she said — In my opinion, was out of line or wrong. She concealed his identity better than I would have, because I’d be telling it all and letting people know who I’m talking about.

  • lela

    A man should never put his hands on a female but men dont care n k. Michelle should of tryed her best to leave him no woman should be treated like that but love hurts but k. Michelle is a bright beautiful woman n she can make it on her own she needs to worry bout k. Michelle n not worry bout him

  • Angelee

    Great answer K. Michelle!

  • SickOfRidiculous

    BET headline reading: “Lil’ Wayne’s First Baby Mama, Toya, Beaten By Husband Memphitz” in 5, 4, 3, 2….

  • Mizz Murdock

    I thought that she was talking about him, being from Memphis kinda made me have that Hhmmm thought, like is she talking abt who I think she talking abt? It’s just sad.

    Now if this was the first time that she’s talked about this then yeah, I’d say she’s just trying to use his name to make a come up…however that’s not the case here. That episode wasn’t the first time she’s talked about it and this story is years old…so I believe her. And maybe its just me but I REALLY hate when men say they “made” a woman. To me that’s equivalent to them saying they owns that woman!

  • sammi_lu

    His response sounded eerily like some Ike Turner isht.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1098637409 Pearl Stillsmiling Goodwin

    sound to me like Toya should be very careful. I know he has the right to defend himself when being accused of something but degrading and down talking someone instead of addressing the accusations makes him look soooooo guilty… get it together Memphitz

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=8210721 Joy Kamille

    She certainly has a career if she keeps playing the bigger person. She can also sing and is HUMBLE. People will continue to like and support her.

    • msnaimah

      Best comment on here. She is virtually getting no credit for taking the higher road. I do hope she has all the peace in the world because being in a violent relationship is the pitts (unfortunately I know) and everyone is not able to become a whole and happy person again after the abuse.

  • seek2027

    I know for a fact that he is not going to put his hands on toya because he knows wayne will handle that in a heart beat

  • NiceNasty

    Okay jus because she didn’t report it doesn’t mean anything. Hello we do live in a America where money talks and bs walks. I’m sure many of you have seen or heard of things happening to someone, they report it but nothing gets done and they can be telling the truth. And in this case I’m not surprised, because he is connected to people with enough money and power to make this go away. I mean come on we’re talking about a executive for Jive being charged with beating this young, singer/songwriter from Memphis during the course of their relationship. The company as awhole knows that something like this would make them look bad if it got out to the public and they couldn’t face the negative backlash that come along with something like this. But I personally think they also was afraid that if she did go through with this and got justice the door would open and all of their skeletons would fall out, exposing the whole music industry. So what does a person with money and power do to save their own a$$? Pay some people to shut that person up, I mean this isn’t the first time that things like this has happened. Where they sweep things under the rug or turn a blind eye to the truth. So ya’ll need to stop with the nonsense, reporting it could have caused her more problems then she wanted. So jus by being released from them without paying that money back, but still being able to sing was enough for her. I honestly hopes she makes it big, so that all of the people who turned their back on her can get on there knees and ki$$ her a$$ for the time of day.

  • Excepcion

    He sounds like a neanderthal. Typical response of someone who has an abusive/manipulative personality to use material “wealth” to show dominance.

  • chiara

    wow….no one knows what happened but the ppl involved & God.also i thought as a media publication your job was to report the news from an unbiased viewpoint. this is clearly not.

    • getreal

      MN is an opinion based online magazine not ABC or NBC. And his statements are admission enough to draw a conclusion from.

    • Kimmie

      So providing background information followed by the comments made by both parties is somehow biased??? I submit that that is the very definition of unbaised reporting!!! Memphitz exposed himself as someone capable of doing the very things that of which it is assumed to have done. He took it UPON HIMSELF to use social media as his platform in doing so made K Michelle’s story all the more credible. And FYI that does not sound like the response of someone who was falsely accused. Just reading it made me feel as though he would have no problem gripping someone up and beating the mess out of them. Dman Shame!

  • yani

    Sooo K. Michelle claim to fame is she got beat by Memphitz?? She in hella blogs saying the same things we heard the other day on #LHHATL & something with her story isn’t right she was all giddy when talking about him & still referring to him as the love of her life

  • ijs

    She makes herself look foolish. Smh. S/He has exposed all her businesses for nothing. She can’t sing and will never be a hit and he is off living happily ever after. She’s angry and bitter.

    • http://diamondpconnect.blogspot.com/ diamondpconnect

      Would you say that to your daughter, mama, sister, aunt?

  • dee

    this is his livelihood. when you google him all you see is these accusations yet no proof. even in this article you’re calling him a woman beater which in journalism is a nono. so dont forgot to write allegedly especially when this story is 2/3 yrs old & still no police report. not saying he did or didn’t but its funny how everyone is quick to believe her & so quick to blame him when there’s no proof of anything.

  • LaLaLaMeansILoveYou

    Off subject, but he is very handsome with some extremely kissable lips. Just sayin…

  • bluekissess

    What do you think about the K. Michelle/ Memphitz situation?

    Well going to twitter is cowardly. How about a phone call, letter, face-to-face to resolve issues

  • guest454

    He’s a batterer. Definitely.

  • http://twitter.com/girlwonder614 cute_n_ creepy

    Well what he said speaks volumes about him too. He say he “made” her, made her what? Does he mean he made her an artist, IF she’s an artist, I’ve NEVER heard of her until now, and if he “made” her image wise, well, that’s phony too! He said it himself, “teeth, tits and ass”…..Sooo….*shrugs*

    Although many of us don’t know who she was speaking of, everyone in the industry did. She knew exactly what she was doing to play victim by not mentioning his name. Her time to be the victim was when he allegedly beat her. She say no one believed her but I’m sure the police would have. Did she tell them? I lost all respect for her. People would do anything to “make it” and we all know bringing drama on a reality show will get you at least a few minutes of fame.

    • Anon

      FYI: This is not new “news.” It is just getting more light shone on it because she is on a show. I heard about this two years ago when he was more visible at the label.

    • Amija James

      People talk about what they go through in life. It’s what makes us who we are. She went through some bs and spoke on it.

    • dee

      exactly my point. she knew she couldn’t say his name because that would be slander. no police reports no proof it happened. even when it first came out it was dismissed because it was thought that she was lying & ppl had come out saying how she was a negative violent person to & one reason why she hadn’t made it big she was difficult to work with. her vlog on yt she was always drunk & seemed disturbed.

    • ijs

      I agree completely.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Supersizeddiva Nikki Collins

    His reaction speaks eons about his character rather he beat her or not I have no idea but his response speaks of a person with no character. He was not attacked she did not mention who it was who did her dirty in name she mentioned the incident half the people who watched the show didn’t know or have an inkling it was him. i don’t know him anyhow. However his response is very like a person in a not sure place in his life ( dude you married and happy why you even respond to the crap) is the attitude he should have had.Instead he talking like he a mad scientist and created a woman in his basement with left over parts and crap and if he hadn’t molded her she be less than she is now really dude that’s how you see it . I declare some folks slay me with jumping up spurting utter nonsense when it is not even called for . The K lady responded very well it no use stooping down and rolling in the dirt in response .

      He was attacked. She publicly accused him of embezzeling $2mil!

      • msniamah

        Uh no she didn’t. She never said who the abuser was. It was actually Tamar Braxton (who has something to do with this how??) who put his name out there.

    she also mentioned he bought rings and chains from her recording budget…so how did he make her…teeth etc were probably pd for that way also….i am soooo disappointed in him…

    • lisa

      exactly. that among the 3 music videos she did. so im sure the budget was used on things for that

    How could he say he ‘made her’, she is not that famous. i liked her comeback “Apersons true colors will always show.”

      Im starting to wonder if Toya and Memphitz read MN because there are 2 thumbs down on every comment that talks about his true color. lol #stopit

  • precious bebe

    K.Michelle is honest and a good person. Toya and Mickey just are mad there past caught up with them. Toya you know how it is LiL Wayne got his fair share of hits before he passed you on to Mickey

  • Anonymous

    This shows his true colors, and it makes me question Toya’s judgement, that’s if she has one. I’m not a big fan of the show, but K.Michelle is handling well. Some men are really immature boys.

    • msnaimah

      It makes you wonder, with Toya coming from a marriage with a character like Lil wayne and now we are seeing more into who Memphitz really is, what type of judgement in men she has. People definitely do change but his response doesn’t indicate that he has.

      • tane

        Tane
        You cant really blame Toya. seems as she may have knew anything about it he appears to be a really sweet guy maybe hes fooling Toya or maybe just treating Toya different because he feel she is different because she has her own already without him dosent make it right at all but thats how men are they treat u different when they feel u nred them.,However he could not have change much at all with that tacky comment and if he paid for all that she looks good so oh well. I believe he beat her and thats yhe cam e back with that guilty tacky comment no one even knew who she was talking and wit him dum self

    Oh wow. That’s super sad, if its true (sounds true to me). Maybe he was under the influence of something when/if he did it? Though, that’s not an excuse to do something like that.

    • precious bebe

      Apparently his Father died and the man who killed admitted to it

  • ohreallynow

    Who cares what it “sounds like”? Can Kmichelle prove that he “beat her?” Or is she just a love sick puppy who didn’t get what she wanted? Is it ok to just say “he beat me” and people automatically believe her? Where is the police report? Do you know how many people’s reputations and lives have been ruined because of what someone emotionally distraught says? Please. Get an education people. Check out some old pics of her before she met Memphitz and then you’ll see what he means when he said, “I made you.” How does that “SOUND”?

    • Amija James

      Ummmmm, calm down, Toya. If you watch, she never said his name. Check your man, boo.

      Can you proof he didn’t beat her? And so what if she has been revamped. That’s what happens when you become an artist. Look at Mary J. Blige. When she made the video for Real Love she was wearing a A cup bra size. Year later she has breast implants you don’t hear Puffy talking about he made her. Don’t tell educated people to get education just because there opinion does not match yours. How does that “Sound”?

      I’ve been choked and punched in front of my kids & there is no police report because I didn’t report the incidents. Does that make me a liar? Does that make my kids a liar when they still come to me asking why their daddy did what he did? I get what you’re saying because there are liars but I will believe her until she proves otherwise. Just because he bought her some body parts doesn’t give him the right to beat her – period!
