While you were enjoying your Sunday night, on Twitter, K. Michelle was taking questions from her fans, the Rebels, about all kinds of things–her relationships, her rumored boos, her music, her sleeping habits and more. It wasn’t to promote anything, but rather, to keep the singer entertained since she was battling a case of insomnia during a flight. But one question that was definitely an interesting one came from a fan who asked K her thoughts on the marital discord going on between her ex, Memphitz, and Toya Wright. I probably would have skipped over that one if I was her, but she decided to respond:
The hell that she is referring to is the fact that the estranged couple spoke out against K’s past claims of domestic abuse at the hands of Memphitz, and often tried to call her a liar. Friends of the couple also backed them up by publicly questioning the singer’s claims (including Rasheeda from “Love and Hip Hop” and even Tamar Braxton). And just recently, Memphitz was out here trying to crack jokes about K, calling her K. NoSales when her new album, Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart, didn’t move the numbers I’m guessing he thought account for a hit.
“& the First Copper Plaque ever in the World goes toooo…Drumroll please…K. NoSales!! AMAZING!!! The People want to know! How’d you do it!???”
But in the end, those jabs taken at her just seemed to be an attempt to cover up all that he was dealing with in his own personal life…and it didn’t work.
What do you think about K’s response?
K. Michelle Sends A Comical Message To Idris Elba And All The Men She Dated In 2014, Who Won’t Make It To 2015
After a year of relationship ups and downs and shedding tears over what was and could have been with Idris Elba, K. Michelle is looking forward in 2015. But not before looking back real quick to chuck the deuces to the men who she was involved with for a time in 2014.
The Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart singer says she won’t date a man if he doesn’t inspire her to want to write, and while Elba was the main inspiration behind the AWBAH album, she gave a few other guys a chance here and there. Last night, as the year prepared to close, she decided to bid them all farewell from her life one last time, and that also includes former boyfriend and NBA player Lance Stephenson, and Bobby Maze, the handsome fella featured on her reality show, “My Life.”
I couldn’t help but bust out laughing when I realized that I was hearing “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday.”
Check out the send-off for yourself and share your thoughts on her goodbye to 2014 and the men who came along and exited with it.
We send our heartfelt condolences to the families of the two slain police officers in New York and we hope that we can begin the healing process in our communities.

Did Y’all See? Segment
Did y’all see the story of K. Michelle spilling the tea on her past relationship with actor Idris Elba? Well, the ladies of MadameNoire aren’t buying it. Catch Did Y’all See on Café Mocha Radio this weekend to find out more on this alleged love story.
Tune in this weekend to Café Mocha Radio and go to MadameNoire.com to find out what the ladies have to say about the hottest topics.
Just when you thought the beef between K.Michelle and her ex boyfriend Memphitz was dying down, the producer logged on to his Instagram account to throw some shade. During the first week of her album, Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart, being on shelves, she sold 90 thousand records. And while that might be quite the accomplishment for some, Memphitz didn’t think much of it.
So he posted a picture of Tupac with this caption:
Aye Pac, did you here [sic] Atlantic Records is bout to give out they first plaque made out of Pure Copper nigga?? This shit is Like History B. #WhereTheyDoThatAt?? I guess they bought more Hearts than albums.
Obviously, that whole and particularly the last line is a jab at K. Michelle’s album.
But he wasn’t finished.
Then, Memphitz posted a picture of a penny and wrote this:
& the First Copper Plaque ever in the World goes toooo…Drumroll please…K. NoSales!! AMAZING!!! The People want to know! How’d you do it!???
There were plenty of celebratory emojis in between like balloons, bells, whistles and even a trophy.
I’m not going to lie, my first reaction was a sincere chuckle. But upon further reflection, you have to wonder why K Michelle is still so heavy on this man’s mind. Particularly when he claims he’s moved on and is very married to Toya Wright.
I know that he believes K Michelle lied on him about the domestic abuse thing. There have been some inconsistencies in her story. But the court documents proved that. This type of pettiness makes Memphitz seem like a bully which is not a good look when he’s been fighting these allegations for years.
It’s been years since Memphitz dated K Michelle, why are you giving her play on your personal Instagram page?
What do you think about Memphitz’s comments?
DST Member K. Michelle Says She “Has No Respect” For Women Of “Sorority Sisters”; Two Advertisers Pull Ads From Show
We already knew that we here at MadameNoire weren’t the only people who weren’t very pleased with the premiere episode of “Sorority Sisters,” but someone pretty livid about the program is K. Michelle. A member of Delta Sigma Theta, and from a family full of black Greeks, the former “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” star said that some things should be sacred and not be exposed for foolishness. And while the singer is well-aware of the fact that she didn’t always behave in the best manner while on reality TV, she says she never went on TV saying she was a Delta, wearing her letters, doing her ‘Oo-oop’ and then arguing with her sorors the next minute. As she told 92 Q’s Kiki Brown in Baltimore:
“It’s not appropriate. I love Mona, I love VH1 to death, they are all my family, but I’m not a fake person in my beliefs. That should have never been touched. Some things should be sacred for us, especially at a time when our black community is struggling so much with things. The sororities and fraternities are the one things we look to in college that uplift the community. Things aren’t peaches and cream, but everything doesn’t need to be exposed when it comes to that. I am a Delta, I have acted a fool on TV, but at the same time, I didn’t do it with the Delta Sigma Theta tatted on my back, in front of people. It’s not an excuse for anything I might have done within TV, at the end of the day we’re all human. But you don’t get on TV in the name of women who came before us and do what you’re doing. I have no respect for those women. They can get mad if they want to. I don’t care. I don’t plan on watching that. I do not plan on supporting that. I will support them as sisters and women within their businesses, but when you represent a whole brand and you’re talking about this brand on TV, it is not appropriate. Yes, we are Deltas, we are human, we do all act a fool in our ways. But you don’t get on their ‘oo-ooping’ and doing all of that while acting a fool. Where I’m from and where I pledged, you weren’t even allowed to drink. You’re not allowed to throw up those symbols while you’re drinking. So not only are you guys throwing up symbols and drinking, going against how we were pledged and brought in, you guys are fighting and cursing with the letters on your back! Not appropriate.
That has to be left alone. VH1 is great for me and they have helped me tremendously. I will always support them. I definitely will always support Mona Scott because she gave me an opportunity when others didn’t. But just because you support someone doesn’t mean you always have to agree with everything…pledging was something that was very important to me. My mom is a Delta, now my little sister is a Delta. My daddy is a Sigma. This is something within my household that my parents and I have taken very seriously. I was very hurt.”
After the premiere episode, people went haywire on Twitter, black Greeks and non-black Greeks alike, slamming the show for being one of the hottest messes they had seen. Another petition was created, and boycotts were encouraged of the advertisers supporting the program. And while those same actions didn’t keep the show from happening in the past, they seem to be making some kind of wave because a couple advertisers have already decided to pull their ads from the show’s time slot. That includes Hallmark and Carmex.
Well, that was quick.
Check out K’s interview below and let us know your thoughts on what she had to say, as well as the choice of these advertisers to pull their ads from future episodes of the show.
[Listen] K. Michelle Breaks Down While Discussing Idris Elba: “I Feel Like I’ve Protected You For So Long”
Apparently, continuously discussing her troubled situationship with Idris Elba is beginning to take an emotional toll on K. Michelle. The reality star recently broke down during an interview with the Russ Parr Morning Show while discussing the album, which she has admitted was inspired by the actor.
It’s not really clear what triggered the breakdown specifically, but she seemed to get a bit emotional after expressing that there’s no hatred between them.
“I think people knew [we were seeing each other]. People kind of hinted that around the time of our musical and everything. I don’t think that I’m snitching on him because he doesn’t really hide it. It’s just what I went through and that’s my life. That’s my art and it is what it is.”
Though she has expressed that he referred to her album as “art” when she first allowed him to preview it, she admits that he hasn’t said a word since the release of Any Wanna Buy A Heart which is when she finally confessed that their situationship is what inspired the project.
“He knows with my music, I’m the Black Taylor Swift. I’m going to write about you and I’m going to talk about you. He really has no choice. Within the last week, I haven’t spoken to him about it. I’m sure he’s a little bothered, but my thing is, I feel like I’ve protected you for so long. These are my emotions that I deserve…I have to protect myself and deal with my emotions. I love him and always will.”
“It’s not a hate thing and we don’t hate each other,” said the singer. “It’s a timing thing.”
At this point, K noticeably breaks down.
“It’s okay,” Russ says trying to console her before cutting to a commercial break. “K. Michelle is a little upset so we’ll come back and talk with her in a minute.”
Check out the full interview below.

“He Has His Ratchet Side”: K. Michelle Talks To Wendy Williams About How She And Idris Elba Connected
After finally revealing on the Breakfast Club that her album, Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart (out now) was influenced by an alleged eight-month relationship with Idris Elba, K. Michelle visited The Wendy Williams Show this morning to talk further about how the two ended up bonding, why she says they went their separate ways, and how she realized she was a side-chick for him. She also had some interesting things to say about being overjoyed to have left “Love and Hip Hop” behind, and about her ex, Memphitz, and his defamation suit against her. Here are the deets:
On Moving Away From “LHH”:
“I just thank God I’m not there. I escaped! I’m never going to downplay what it did for my career. I won’t take from that. I hated going to work every day feeling like I had to fight.”
On Memphitz, Claims That She Lied About Being Abused, And His Defamation Lawsuit:
“I don’t sing about him no more [laughs]. For me, I think that was one of the most hurtful things to take a stand on and say, you know what, I’m going to talk about the abuse that I went through. For me, beating your behind, or whatever you want to call it, comes in a lot of different forms. And to me, if I was drug and smothered with a towel and drug across the ground and I’m screaming for help, ‘Please don’t kill me,’ I think that was a little bit of abuse. It has been really difficult to see that every city I go to for promo, I go to a shelter and I go talk to women. The same women that you’re fighting for can become the same women that are poking at you and calling you a liar. And that makes women not want to come out and talk about it.
He’s suing me. I never said his name. He doesn’t have a job, so I’m the job. I’m very confident from what’s been going on that I will be vindicated in this, and I will finally get my life back.”
On Not Feeling Idris At First And Moving On After He Had His Son:
It was like an 8 month situation. I never thought that I would like him either. I thought his jeans were too tight. I told him! And I thought his accent was kind of funny. No offense to the UK, it was just different for me…We just clicked. People aren’t always what they seem. He’s not a bad person at all. He has his ratchet side and he cleans up nicely but he’s very down to earth. He’s very fun.
There was a situation. He has a child and I’m not going to get in the way of that…you’re not going to get me. You’re not going to call me the homewrecker or call me any of that. So me, I desire a lot of attention and time, and when there’s a newborn you have to give your time and attention to that child.
When I met him, I did find out that he had a woman pregnant. But I did not know the extent of that situation. I kind of looked up and I kind of was like the sidechick. I looked in the mirror and I was like, ‘Girl, you done paid all this money for this work [laughs]. You can’t be the sidechick!’ But through it all he has remained a gentleman.”
Check out her full chat with Wendy and let us know what you think below…
During K. Michelle’s very revealing Breakfast Club interview earlier this week, she had some things to say about everything and everybody (including us…*Kanye shrug*), and one person she said she has no time for is Lil Kim. If you’ll recall, the women fell out after Lil Kim fans came for K. Michelle when she called Nicki Minaj the ‘Queen of Rap,’ and in retaliation, she dissed them. Kim took that as a personal insult since she loves her fans so much, and from there, they had bad blood. K told Kim to go somewhere and breastfeed her baby, and Kim called K crazy. That was it…for a while.
But when K was asked about Kim on The Breakfast Club on Tuesday, and Kim denying ever asking her to be the godmother to her daughter, K had this to say:
“I swear for crackers and cheese—God strike me down—that girl asked me to be the godmother of her child. And I thought it was awkward myself.
Her face is stretched back too tight, it probably affected her brain. I just feel bad for her face. Don’t talk to me until you get your original face back.”
Now we all know that Kim wasn’t going to allow anyone to say anything negative about her without striking back. So she took to Instagram and went all the way off:
I wasn’t even going to respond to this insecure pathological lying sick psycho bitch @kmichelle @kmichellemusic I got bigger fish to fry but enough is enough. I need to put an end to this once and for all. Remember this picture y’all right? . This was the first and only time I have ever met this chick. She says I asked her this day backstage to be the Godmother of my child. If what I’m about to say doesn’t convince you of how much of a Looney Tune this chick is then I don’t know what will. You ready for this one?! NO ONE EVEN KNEW I WAS PREGNANT AT THE TIME OF THIS PICTURE… NOT EVEN MY OWN MOTHER!!!!! So why the FUCK would I ask this nobody ass Prozac popping bipolar bitch, tripping over $50 from my girl Paris @whoisparisphillips , who is a good and loyal friend, to be my child’s Godmother. Case closed. I don’t want to hear about this shit again. You’re done. And as far as you talking about the presence that I grace in front of peasants like you. Surely jealousy and hate is the reason why haters like you attack my image which never stops nothing!!! Cause I’m moving out here!!! and niggas love me!!!! Chicks like you who pretend to love me just really wanna be me. My mother always told me never argue with a crazy person because from a distance you can’t tell who the crazy one is. So stop trying to use me as a respirator to sell whatever you got going on at the time but I am into giving back to the community so here’s my charity donation to you. I heard you dropped an album and I wish you all the success in the world and I hope you sell a ton of records. Let’s get ready for the new year y’all !!!! #lilkim #kmichelle #toasttoabeautifulandprosperousnewyear
Well dang, Kim. Tell ‘em why you’re mad. I’m guessing we’ll see her on The Breakfast Club to defend herself again sometime next week.
Anyway, since K is out promoting her new album, Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart, we were thinking she would be too busy to respond to Kim’s verbal attack, but then again, she always finds time to get involved in some mess…
