K. Michelle and Tamar Braxton’s beef continues to be one of the strangest ones we’ve seen in a while when it comes to the music/R&B front. As we reported recently, the whole feud started after Tamar shaded K. Michelle in defense of her friend Toya Wright. Many of you may know if you watch “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” that K. Michelle accused Toya’s husband Memphitz of abusing her while they dated. Since then, both have had numerous Twitter beefs, with Tamar even slapping K. Michelle with a Cease and Desist letter that didn’t seem to scare off K. Michelle any considering she still claps back on her Twitter account with no hesitation.
The latest Twitter showdown between K. Michelle and Tamar was actually over a wig. After K. Michelle made a recent appearance on 106 & Park, Tamar cryptically tweeted about losing her wig, making K. Michelle’s fans think Braxton was suggesting she was trying to copy her look. Of course K. Michelle clapped back and came for Tamar directly, and now the latest Twitter beef has spilled over into their radio interviews.
In an interview with The Rise & Grind, K. Michelle claims she thinks Tamar’s real issue with her is she’s bitter she’s trying to make her career happen in her 40s, and K. Michelle’s music career is taking off a lot faster:
“I don’t have no problem, but I guess it’s very depressing to be a 40-year-old muppet still trying to shake and make it. I wasn’t doing anything, I was working. I have actually even said good things, I like “Love and War.” I like the record. I’ve been saying really positive things about this woman, and she just can not take it. She can not take all of me.
“I’m out here working, being positive, doing what I need to do. And I’m on 106th and Park, presenting my album, and you watching … and you want to comment on what I’m doing. It’s a wig, you 40 fighting over a wig.”
Tamar has also been popping off in her interviews as of late, and she claims the shade she threw was for her former hair stylist she feels K. Michelle stalked for a new hairdo. She tells Muthaknows:
“There’s nothing going on with me and K. Michelle. I didn’t at anybody (on Twitter). I really wasn’t talking about her. I was talking about the wig maker whom of which she stalked to get her her wig made by the same person. And that’s fine. He makes great wigs. People have to be exposed for the lies they tell.
“In every situation I’ve had with this person, she’s invited herself to it like the whole Toya situation. I wasn’t talking to her.”
Tamar then goes on to say that her hubby Vince called Mona Scott Young and demanded K. Michelle apologize when the beef first started, and K. Michelle offered to call and apologize. Then she says she demanded K. Michelle apologize in public and the “Rebellious Soul” singer has yet to do so.
K. Michelle may not be planning to apologize to Tamar anytime soon, but she did tell a fan on Twitter that she doesn’t dislike Tamar, but she won’t tolerate the jabs she throws either:
