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?
Toya Wright Says She’s Praying For Her Marriage; Memphitz Twistedly Jokes About Their Separation Being A Ploy For A Reality Show
I can’t really call what’s going on between Toya Wright and Memphitz. Their out-of-the-blue decision to expose their marital issues to the world has left me a little suspicious (or maybe they’ve dropped hints for a while and we all just didn’t notice…). I will say though, when I read the things that Toya has to say, I believe that she’s really hurt and wants her marriage to work. But when I read what Memphitz has to say…not so much. It seems that he’s going through something really deep these days that’s causing him to act out, and that’s just based off of Instagram posts alone that I’m seeing.
There was this:
This creepy thing right here…
And then finally, this post. In it, he states that what they’re going through is really just for reality TV:
That particular post seems to be in response to someone who wrote into BallerAlert, claiming that Memphitz and Toya were trying to drum up publicity for a new reality show:
But Toya isn’t finding any of this funny. She wrote a note and posted it on Instagram, telling fans that there is no show, and that her estranged husband is really going through things right now that have put their marriage in a dark place. But she is hopeful that they can salvage it, and she’s grateful for those who have been supportive during this time.
An unfortunate situation all around. What do you think about Memphitz’s posts and Toya’s response?
It’s clear that Toya Wright’s marriage to Mickey “MempHitz” Wright is on the rocks, but what remains unclear is what put the nail in the coffin of the estranged couple’s marriage. Of course, unanswered questions usually leaves the rumor mill to draw their own conclusions, which is exactly what happened here.
Earlier this week, former VH1 reality television personality Shay Johnson shared photos of her, MempHitz, personal trainer Derek Taylor and “Married to Medicine” star Quad Webb at the gym.
Apparently, those photos quickly resulted in speculation that Shay may have played a role in the demise of Meph’s marriage.
Shay eventually responded to the rumors through a statement published by Hip Hop Weekly. According to the former “Flavor of Love 2” contestant, she is not romantically involved with the former industry executive. Her statement reads:
“Normally, we wouldn’t even address such a ludicrous rumor coming from Mediatakeout.com, but to get ahead of the lie, we felt the need to clarify a few things. Shay Johnson and Memphitz have no relationship. They don’t know each other outside of social gatherings and they happen to share the same celebrity trainer, Derek Taylor … who, by the way, has trained Toya, Memphitz and Shay at the same time. Although Shay and Toya are mere associates, Shay has nothing but respect for her and values the system of marriage and wishes them nothing but the best.”
We’re glad to hear that the rumors are not true. That triangle would have been quite messy.

We’re still not sure where things went wrong between Toya Wright and Memphitz (born Mickey Wright), as they’ve always seemed like a happy couple, but the issues that both parties have been alluding to on social media seem to be getting worse. They’ve become so hard to deal with that now, Wright and Memphitz are staying in two different states–she is still in Atlanta, but he is reportedly staying in Los Angeles right now.
According to TMZ, Memphitz wasn’t happy being in relationship that was in the public eye (“a celebrity marriage” according to the site), and while he doesn’t plan to file for divorce, it doesn’t seem that a reconciliation will happen right now. The website says that Memphitz will let Toya be the one to file divorce papers if that’s what she decides to do, and also claims that rumors here and there about him having another child outside of their marriage aren’t true–he reportedly had a vasectomy a long time ago.
We told you recently that things started to look a little shaky between these two after Memphitz posted a picture of his wife’s wedding ring in a glass and told people that “this public marriage thing ain’t for every1. sh*t is hard. but when love let u down u let love go. who do i trust? who do I depend on? ME! Thas Who! just be happy.”
She responded by posting the quote, “Even the deepest of love may not be enuf [sic] too [sic] outweigh the depth of your situation…Prayer however, outweighs all…” and following it up with “they tell me forever is temporary.”
Since then, Memphitz posted this on January 3 on Twitter and Instagram: “Happy 2015. yea I’m a lil late but a ni**a always on time. #MissMeWitThatLoveSh*t”
As for Toya, last night, she posted this on Instagram to describe her current feelings:
We’re still hopeful that these two will be able to work on their marriage and not give up on it, but only time (and possibly therapy) will tell.
Memphitz Isn’t The Only One Venting: Toya Wright Sheds Some Light On Her Marital Issues – “They Tell Me Forever Is Temporary”
Just because it’s a new year doesn’t mean that people aren’t taking confusion from last year into it.
We told you earlier this week that MempHitz (born Mickey Wright) decided to share, through Instagram, that his marriage might be in trouble. He posted the following photos (including one of an engagement ring in a glass) and said that “when love let u down u let love go”:
“All I’ma say is this public marriage thing ain’t for every1. sh-t is hard. but when love let u down u let love go. who do I trust? who do I depend on? ME! Thas Who! just be happy. happy f-kin new year.”
He also posted this:
“love lost. life is life.”
Both images were later deleted from his Instagram account. But his wife, Toya Wright, hasn’t deleted a message she posted a few hours ago about their relationship, though hers is more focused on the power of prayer during a tumultuous time:
A photo posted by Antonia Wright (@toyawright) on
Toya’s post went up early in the day on New Year’s Eve, and by night, she was out celebrating the new year–with friends and not her husband.
It’s unclear what will happen with these two, but we’re hoping that they will find their way to happiness, whether with, or without each other. The couple have been married since 2011.
Social media is the gift and the curse of this generation. Of course, it has its positives, but when people use it as a means of measuring the value of real life relationships or to air out personal issues, I truly begin to wonder whether we’d be better off without it.
Yesterday, one of those more personal messages, which should’ve probably remained a thought or private conversation as opposed to an Instagram post, was shared by Mickey “MempHitz” Wright, the husband of former reality star Toya Wright. In the post, the former industry executive seemed to allude that he and Toya are experiencing trouble in their marriage after he posted a photo of what appears to be Toya’s engagement ring sitting in a glass.
“All I’ma say is this public marriage thing ain’t for every1,” he captioned the image. “Sh-t is hard. but when love let u down u let love go. who do I
trust? who do I depend on? ME! Thas Who! just be happy.
happy f-kin new year.”
He also shared another image with a caption that reads:
“love lost. life is life.”
Of course, all couples experience their share of issues at one point or another, but if saving the relationship is the goal, alerting the world that you’re having a hard time through social media probably isn’t the best move.
So far, Toya has not publicly acknowledge her husband’s comments. Whatever the situation is, we’re hoping that they’re able to work it out.

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?
With the recent release of her courtroom deposition, people are really starting to question K Michelle’s story about being abused by former boyfriend Memphitz. There has been a least one major inconsistency with her story. At one point, she said he punched her. But then, when she was under oath, she said he hit her with a water bottle and dragged her across the floor, leaving carpet burns.
Whether he punched her or not, dragging someone across a carpet is still physical abuse and not something to be taken lightly. The courts will decide what to do with that situation. But in the meantime, Memphitz has alleged that the accusations K Michelle has lodged against him have negatively impacted his career and his family.
And instead of waiting on the judicial system, he posted a couple of messages on his Instagram account.
And then in the second, he takes it up a notch by threatening to release a secret tape, presumably a sex tape–because they’re all the rage these days–of K Michelle.
Shortly after the messages were posted Memphitz deleted them. Probably because they were incredibly stupid. Threatening to release a “secret tape” on someone you once dated, in some type of vindictive power play does look too good when you’re trying to prove you never exerted your physical power over her by dragging her across the living room. Not to mention, if Memphitz makes an appearance in said tape, how will Toya feel about that?
And since we’re at it, can we stop pretending that allegations of abuse from years ago are the reason Memphitz’s career is hurting? As sad of a commentary as this is, we all know and have seen in the past few months, that domestic violence, without undeniable proof, is very rarely taken seriously. It’s not like K Michelle has a whole lot of powerful friends in high places. Memphitz might want to do some reevaluation on the real reason why his career is floundering.
I don’t know if Memphitz hit K Michelle or not. But I highly doubt he’s the stand up guy people have made him out to be.
Last week, the transcript from the deposition stemming from the lawsuit filed by MempHitz against K. Michelle was published by our sister site, Bossip. During questioning, K expressed that she was never punched by the producer, which some found to be inconsistent with her previously shared accounts of the attack. Eventually, people began to express belief that the former “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star had lies about the entire incident. K recently took to Instagram to address the speculation saying:
“I’m a lot of things but a liar I’m not. For over five years I’ve been told to be quiet about my life of abuse. And I refused and still refuse to be silenced. I was not punched in the isolated assault and never claimed to be. But what I was, was drug across the room and smothered with a towel losing consciousness to the point of a black out. And having to fight my way out of the room screaming for help. I almost lost my life,” she wrote.
“No form of violence is acceptable,” she continued. “Especially if I wasn’t hitting or being the aggressor. I have NEVER lied about this. This is another attempt to silence me and another form of abuse. An attempt to gain media attention for the other party who is seeking money (because they have no income), and fame.”
She then went on to direct media attention to another outlet that published another part of the documents, which according to Karen Civil, includes MempHitz admitting to grabbing and physically restraining her.
“The truth is clearly stated in these documents. I will not give them what they want, which is time, energy and ATTENTION. No woman should ever go through this. The truth is in the papers. I won’t act as a victim, but as a survivor.”
As previously reported, K alleges that MepHitz threatened to kill her son and that she has the text messages to prove it. Both parties are due back in court on November 24.
For almost two years now, K. Michelle has said time and time again that Memphitz, her ex boyfriend and Toya Wright’s current husband, put his hands on her. You may remember, in a meeting with Rasheeda she kept saying, over and over again, ‘He beat my ass.’ She screamed it, tears streaming down her face.
And in 2012, during an interview with The Breakfast Club, she detailed the incident.
I wasn’t just sitting there innocent, but I didn’t hit him first. I did not. I didn’t do anything. He blacked out. It wasn’t just a restraining. I was smothered with a towel. He hit me in the head with a water bottle. It wasn’t nothing small. I was bruised up and bleeding. What shocked me the most was the smothering. I was crawling and climbing to get away. Once I got away he was doing it again. He yanked me. I had carpet burns. I looked in his face and it did not look like him. I was screaming, “It’s me”. After that I left.
He was texting saying “I miss you, I’m sorry, I made a mistake. I really couldn’t forgive it because then he started saying “I made you”. When he started saying he made me then I started getting mad because I did not press charges because I loved him and I didn’t want him to get in trouble. I didn’t want him to lose his job. I still loved him. I just didn’t want to be with him. It got bad when R. Kelly came in.”
And that same year, in an interview with Rolling Out, she said:
“I also hope that they are mature within their situation to let me tell what happened to me. Because you’re at a point where you’ve got it together now. When I was there, you didn’t have it together. So, you know, I’m happy. I kind of feel like Build A Bear. You build a nigga up, you get punched by him and then the muhfucka go…and you build him up, he’s a better person.”
She said it flippantly but it does represent an inconsistency in her story.
Naturally, Memphitz didn’t like being accused of domestic violence and felt it was having a negative impact on his career. So he sued K. Michelle, Mona Scott-Young’s production company and Viacom. Memphitz is asking that K. Michelle pay his attorney’s fees and cost of litigation for his troubles.
In a recent deposition, obtained by Bossip, K. Michelle detailed the incident.
