Former “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” star K. Michelle has managed to do what most reality stars can’t, and that’s using her television fame to create a successful music career. In fact, K. Michelle’s debut studio album “Rebellious Soul” actually outperformed in first week sales against established R&B singers Kelly Rowland and Ciara. And even though K. Michelle’s music career seems to be only getting better and she’s soaring as a solo artist, she still has reality television in the palm of her hands. K. Michelle will not only be on the upcoming season of “Love and Hip Hop New York,” but she landed her very own reality show and it’s set to premiere in the fall and Elle Varner will join her.
K. Michelle’s relatable music and the loyalty of her fans are the main reasons K. Michelle’s album is doing so well, but she may have disappointed quite a few of them the other day after she posted a photo that seemed pretty innocent at first.
The singer has been happily dating NBA player Lance Stephenson of the Indiana Pacers, and she posted a photo of one of their romantic nights. In the photo, K. Michelle showed her fans that they would be eating a romantic dinner and enjoying some wine. However, her fans paid more attention to the small Buddha statue she had by her lit candles. She posted the following photo and caption:
Cooking a nice dinner, baking, nice glass of wine, and Fresh flowers A grown and sexy kind of night. #NoStress
Some of the singer’s fans made it clear they were not happy she had a Buddha statue in her home and they slammed what they thought was her confirmation of opposite religious beliefs than theirs. Angry fans write:
Buddha That’s the prob U need. JESUS!!!!
U better stop praying to Buddha and pray to God!
but if she’s a firm believer in God then she wont have that in her house period Now some of yall need to crack up a bible not a book & read because if u did u would know that God is a jealous God & u should serve no one but him I love @kmichellemusic but I don’t condone this statue being in her house
K. Michelle hasn’t responded to the criticism as of yet, but judging by her past Twitter behavior, we wouldn’t be surprised if she did.
