[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.”
