The petty, seemingly never-ending feud between singers K.Michelle and Tamar Braxton is one-year strong and it doesn’t appear that the two will make amends anytime soon. During a recent interview with 97.9 The Box Houston, Tamar shared that although their disagreement began over an apparent misunderstanding— that K.Michelle has even offered to apologize for— she has no intentions of patching things up.
On their most recent verbal dispute triggered by her wig comment:
“There’s nothing going on with me and K.Michelle. I didn’t ‘at’ anybody. I really wasn’t talking about her. I was talking about the wigmaker whom she stalked to get her wig made by the same person [as me]. And that’s fine, he makes great wigs. People have to be exposed for the lies they tell. I’m not that girl who has to be the Beyoncé of the situation, meaning I don’t have to be the superstar. I’ll go on stage and do my thing and gracefully go home and play with my baby. I don’t have a problem with that. But, that didn’t happen. As a matter of fact, she went on stage and then she came out and watched my show. So I don’t know where that came from, but I’m so grown, If I have something to say to you, and I’ve proven this on every last one of my shows, I will say it to you.”
On how the feud originally began last year:
“You know, I don’t know. Every situation I’ve had with this particular person, she’s invited herself into. Like the whole Toya situation. I wasn’t talking to her. As a matter of fact, I didn’t even know that people knew it was Toya’s husband that they were talking about.I sent a message to my friend [Toya] because she was on her second honeymoon and she was in Paris. When Vince and I went to Paris it was like a fairytale. I felt like Cinderella. My whole statement was something to the effect of, ‘Let people tell their fairytales’ because she [Toya] was like ‘F what you heard. I love my man.’ And I was like ‘Girl, enjoy yourself. Let other people tell their fairytales,’ meaning she was living hers. In their Instagram pictures they were on a little canal boat, they went to the Eifel Tower and I’ve been with my man and it really is Cinderella-like.”
On K.Michelle’s initial offer to apologize:
“What upset me so much about the situation was the next day, Vince and I called Mona Scott, because first of all, Vince is a businessman and she mentioned ‘Braxton Family Values’ and that was his problem with it. Like, ‘Okay, this is my coin and that’s not what we do here.’ And she actually offered to call me and apologize to me because she was like it was blown out of proportion. And she knew that’s not where it came from because we made an attempt to tell Mona that’s not where it came from. So she wanted to call me and tell me that she was sorry, but my whole thing was like, ‘You know what, publicly you made this statement about me, so publicly you should apologize to me. So she hasn’t done that.”
On if she’s willing to resolve her issues with K:
“Well, you know what, my grandmother used to say, ‘If you’ll lie, you’ll steal and if you’ll steal, you’ll kill’ and ain’t nobody got time for that. I’m trying to live my life.”
The fact that from a business standpoint, Tamar and K are direct competitors who are ultimately going after similar audiences probably isn’t helping their feud either.
What do you think of all of this?
