K. Michelle’s Alleged Abusive Ex Boyfriend is Toya Wright’s Husband Memphitz

After the explosive premiere of Love And Hip Hop Atlanta, rumors resurface painting Memphitz, husband to Toya Wright, as K. Michelle’s abusive ex boyfriend.

Love And Hip Hop Atlanta started off with a bang and plenty drama to keep most viewers talking well after the ending of the first episode. While we were introduced to the typical drama from struggling singers, overbearing mommas and momma’s boy rappers, and too loyal baby mommas and girlfriends; the background stories behind the cast-members are way more interesting than any drama invented for the television series. And while the much-anticipated premiere came off heavily scripted and over processed, the new cast has enough drama in their bios to make turning away from the reality show too difficult for most.

One of the breakout stars of the show will be struggling R&B singer K. Michelle. The young singer had so much promise a few years ago, but that promise ended shortly after a bad relationship that eventually turned abusive. After meeting an industry man who promised her everything, K. Michelle found herself with absolutely nothing and no more money left in her million dollar budget she was given as a new artist. Though she got the deal with Jive Records through this man, K. Michelle claims he became abusive and blew through the money and left for her for another woman.

K. Michelle claims the man used the money to buy her breast implants, and purchase himself jewelry. As the abuse continued, those at her label did nothing, and asked her to continue working despite the turmoil her relationship was causing in her life.

Her bio reads:

Thanks to a chance run in with fellow hometown native MeMpHiTz, Michelle got the big break she needed. During a trip to Jive’s New York offices, she spotted MeMpHiTz in the hallway wearing a “901” chain, symbolizing the area code of Memphis. “I introduced myself to him. I had nothing to lose,” remembers Michelle. “He asked me what I was doing there trying to get a record deal without him.” A week later, now under the Hitz Committee Entertainment, K. Michelle wowed executives and received a deal. “God knew I needed somebody that could understand my struggle and develop me into a better artist. MeMpHiTz is the best person to work with me.”

A couple of years ago, Toya Wright (ex-wife to Lil’ Wayne), and Memphitz were forced to defend their relationship after K. Michelle took to her Twitter account to accuse Memphitz of beating her while they dated.

Rumors also suggest that Memphitz actually dated K. Michelle while he was romantically pursuing Toya. K. Michelle eventually called things off when she got tired of the physical abuse and Toya and Memphitz eventually got married a couple years later.

But the scandal does not end there, since K. Michelle claims Memphitz took all that was left of her deal money and courted and purchased a house for Toya.

Ironically, Memphitz and Toya were celebrating their one year anniversary around the same time as the show’s premiere last night. Although they decided to travel to Paris to celebrate, Toya made sure she took time to use her Twitter page to throw a little shade to K. Michelle:

Memphitz has been denying the accusations since they first surfaced on the internet two years ago. However, K. Michelle continues to stand by her claims, although she did not name her abuser in the season premiere.


  1. Aww snap! They are such a beautiful couple. I don’t want to have to give him the side eye for this one. I hope it’s not true but you can’t put anything past anyone these days.

  2. I believe her. I’m not saying he beats Toya but I’m not one to label other women crazy because they claim to have seen a different side in a man that makes others uncomfortable.

  3. Uh oh. All I can say is Toya shouldn’t be so quick to dismiss this information. There have been plenty relationships that started off great and ended up abusive. She needs to be careful.

  4. If he did this, Toya married a cold hearted snake and it will come back to bite her. Domestic abuse is nothing to play with, so I hope K. Michelle isn’t lying.

  5. I’ve been knowing this for quite some time now and I wonder if maybe that is how Toya lost the baby she had. I mean, we all (those who follow gossip) saw the photo of a pregnant Toya and she had her wedding ring on in the picture. Now all of a sudden, there is no baby. Yeah she could have had a miscarriage, but why did she deny ever being pregnant when the photo was clearly on the internet for everyone to see? Something just isn’t adding up with Toya and her hubby.

    1. Have you even consider that Toya was never even pregnant? I mean when I don’t exercise for awhile and it a good portion of food people alway thing I’m pregnant. That could be her case.

      Its funny when people change to b a better person and move on the Devil alwasy finds a way to destroy that person life. I just wish all this accusation happened before Toya even got married not after 1 year been married years of knowing each other.
      K Michelle decided to break her silence.

  6. She doesn’t look like she was being malicious in this episode when she was describing her pain. She didn’t even name his name. I felt she was being sincere with her feelings.

    I don’t know if the accusations are true or not, but I wouldn’t be so quick to dismiss it either. Domestic abuse is no joke. Speaking from experience, nobody believed my friend until she was dead. Her husband painted her as crazy and everybody believed him, until she died and the skeletons in his closet were revealed.

  7. Sad but true, I don’t understand why ppl. are acting shocked with the whole abusive past of Memphis. Do ya’ll remember when he and Toya first started dating, Wayne checked that ass asap when he got wind of their relationship. Also, I heard that’s the real reason why Toya’s brothers did not attend her wedding, they really ain’t feeling Memphis like that b/c he’s a women beater and is only using her for fame. I wonder why Tiny did not warn Toya of his abusive past b/c she knew of him beating K. Michelle’s ass, everybody in the “A” did. I believe K. Michelle 100 percent, emotions never lie. Sad that men in power can get a way with beating women and everyone brushes it off to the side as if nothing ever happened.

    1. Thank You!!!! I am from Atlanta and yes, K. Michelle is telling the truth!!!! Toya is a fool and her own family knows it too! It’s just a matter of time before he goes upside her head if he hasn’t already. Trust! Don’t be fooled.

  8. Ugh here we go again another female defending something she knows nothing about. How can Toya speak she in the same boat with us she dont even know what went on in that relationship. Plus your baby daddy is lil wayne : \ look at the crappy kind of guy he is so what makes me think Memphitz is any better. Toya is still in denial about weezy saying oh he wasnt like that when we were together( BULLSh*t) and now she saying Memphitz is a great person. She is in denial. Im sorry Toya is pretty but she need to go sit in the corner somewhere and give K. Michelle a chance to do what Joseline did to Stevie J in the therapist office lol

  9. I’m from New Orleans the same city toya from it’s always to sides of a story can we say he did it no cause we wasn’t there. Could we say K lying no because we wasn’t there all I can say is I like both of these woman and the heat over a man ani’t worth it, now for toya she can’t say it lies cause k was married to him first and she was not around, is K is mad or jealous because the man remarried I don’t think so to me I feel like everybody say K Michelle is crazy but something in my heart tell me she maybe telling the truth,but if not I wish toya and her husband still happiness but I think its time for the truth for real but look can be very deceiving

  10. I have always liked Toya, but I think it would be best if she just says she never saw that from her husband. She wasnt there. It could have happened. We all know K. Michelle doesnt hold her tongue and its possible she said something that set him off. I know from experience when my sons father and I got into a horrible fight in which he choked me until I almost died. It was only God that made him stop because I couldnt do anything but plead with my eyes. I could have stopped it from escalating had I shut up when I saw him getting angrier but I kept pushing with my words. Even his mother couldnt believe he did it. He couldnt bellieve he did it. He wont admit to this day it was as bad as it was because he doesnt want to see himself like that. Hes not a fighter, he only fights me, because I have a strong opinion. So I know first hand a nice guy will hit you too. Especially if you are very opinionated like K. And just because there was no police report doesnt mean it didnt happen. And just cuz it only happened once, still makes it the time he almost killed me.

  11. Its sad that Rasheeda so call friend would call K. Michelle a liar. If u don’t know what happen behind close door shut the hell up. When a woman don’t believe another woman then how can u believe if child told u they been abuse would u turn your back or liisten. This not a friend K. Michelle and you are beautiful and strong strong enough to talk about. Toya might have more male back up then K. is y she hasn’t experience it and abusive men never tell the truth evEn if god and mom was sitting there love u K. keep your head up.

  12. I honestly think that no other woman should accuse another of lying about be abused. No one was there beside the two them so how can anyone say she is lying. Most women don\’t report abuse fron a man.

  13. Whats done in the dark will come to the light. I like both Toya and K Michelle. I just started doing some research I have went through the whole season watching love and hip hop and not knowing who K Michelle was referring to. I believed her to the fullest, BUT then I found out that Memphiz was the attacker, so it had me doubting her story. But I dont know K Michelle,Memphiz,or Toya but what I do know is this Memphiz character I would have never known existed if he wasn\’t on the Toya show or if K.Michelle didn\’t make him relevant. Now think about it if K Michelle was blasting Memphiz out of jealousy she would have been done said his name and everything the only reason why we know she was abused is because she is still suffering and trying to heal from this experience by telling her testimony not because she trying to put rumors out in the streets !

  14. The pain that K Michelle was showing when she was talking to Raseeda was so obvious. She was real. Rasheeda is blind. How could she not see the pain in this woman. She needs to open her eyes. Who needs friends like her? She is going to feel like a fool when she finds that K Michelle was telling the truth.
