27-year-old singer-turned-reality star K.Michelle has been very vocal about her departure from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta over the past few months, but during a recent interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, she dropped the bomb that in addition to starring in her own spin-off show, she’ll be switching sides and joining the cast of Love & Hip Hop New York. The “I Just Wanna” singer also discussed rumors about her relationship with former Miami Dolphins player Chad Johnson. After previously denying being romantically involved with the ex athlete, K revealed that she’s being courted by him. Check out some excerpts from her interview below.

On leaving LHHATL and joining LHHNY:

“It’s just time to go. I got some other stuff popping off. They are actually bringing me to ‘Love & Hip Hop New York.’ I do have my own show [as well].”

“Coming to New York is basically setting up my own show. It’ll kind of be my own show within ‘Love & Hip Hop.’ You really won’t see me with – you know.”

On reality TV changing her life:

“I always say this, nobody, no matter how good I was singing or what was going on, nobody was listening to my music. And now all of a sudden, I put out this mixtape. It got over a million downloads. All my New York shows, all my shows are selling out because they introduced me on this show. ‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’ was a great stepping stone for me.”

On if J.R. Smith is really “desert thirsty” like Rihanna says he is: 

“That ain’t have nothing to do with me. But that one, she said what she needed to say to that young man so… I don’t know [if he’s desert thirsty]. When it comes to him, I said my peace. Good luck with it.”

On being with a woman: 

“Yeah [I’ve been with a woman]. I’ve sang about it. It’s nothing… I have dipped out. I thought I was gay for three months. I realized what y’all men go through. The b***h actually jumped on my car. Like, I had a new car. She actually  jumped on my car and scratched it up with her shoe and it was wrap.”

On Chad Johnson buying her a pet monkey:

“Yes, he did. You can’t bring the monkey to New York, so the monkey is in Florida and I’ve been trying to find it a home.  Chad approached me and he tried to date me and I was like, ‘No, I don’t want no shoes. Everybody get shoes man. I want a monkey.'”

On Chad trying to woo her:

“I thought it was a sweet gesture. And no, we have not slept together. I been through a lot with this dating thing. I spoke to Chad yesterday. We are friends and I think that’s what it needs to be. I think I hopped into something that I shouldn’t have hopped into so quickly last time and I feel like now I have to pace it.”

“We are going to dinner and we are being friends. We’re talking on the phone. He’s courting.”

“He’s really nice. I’m getting to know him as a friend.”

      He didn’t buy her a monkey out of the blue. I heard the interview this morning. She actually wanted the monkey. She said she didn’t want the ‘conventional’ shoe, purse, etc, as a gift. She wanted something different and she likes monkeys lol

      Exactly! That was the first thought that came to my mind as well. Hate to say it but he’s a typical [low life] black man (and we can leave it at that). Smh
