For a few years now, we've been watching and listening as K.Michelle publicly bashed her ex record exec/something like a boo thang, Mickey "Memphitz" Wright. She made claims of abuse and mismanagment of the money for her album. Well, since the first episode of Mona Scott-Young's Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta, more people have started to hear her story.
In the first episode, K told the world that " he beat my azz." While she didn't say any names, the description she gave, and the past Twitter rants told the world exactly who she was referring to. Memphitz responded, saying that her claims were false. In the last episode Rasheeda told K that she didn't believe her and mentioned that there was no proof. K was extremly upset and said that if Memphitz kept denying the claims she was gonna 'put the sh*t out." Well, looks like whatever proof she claims to have, she's gonna have to do just that, "put the sh*t out."
Mickey "Memphitz" Wright is fighting back, the right way. Check MORE DISH to find out more.
Atlanta, GA-September 4, 2012-Mickey Wright, Jr. p/k/a "MeMpHiTz", is filing a federal lawsuit against the creators and producers of the popular VH-1 reality television show "Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta."
Attorneys Conti J. Moore, Esq. of Conti Moore Law, PLLC and Alcide L. Honoré, Esq. of Hooper & Honoré, LLC, are representing Mr. Wright. He is filing suit against the following entities: Viacom International, Inc.; NFGTV, Inc.; and Monami Entertainment, LLC.
Wright is suing the named Defendants for approximately one dollar per viewer per show for damages that stem from the defamatory statements and denigrating actions of cast member Kimberly Michelle Pate p/k/a “K. Michelle”.
According to Attorney Conti J. Moore, Esq., whose practice is based in Orlando, Florida, “Ms. Pate has taken full advantage of society’s tendency to accept claims of domestic violence as always being true, even in the absence of proof. The only abuse that actually occurred is the malicious and calculated pattern of vicious lies Ms. Pate has assailed for the purpose of fabricating a compelling story line in an attempt to ruin my client’s name.”
Atlanta based Attorney Alcide L. Honoré, Esq. maintains that, “even the most ridiculous statements when repeated frequently become true in the minds of many. Ms. Pate’s preposterous claims, which include allegations that Mr. Wright mismanaged funds and caused her career to ‘flop’, have been adopted as truth by many followers of the popular VH-1 reality series.”
"My family and I have suffered tremendously while VH-1, Monami Ent., and the other companies provided a worldwide platform for K. Michelle to repeatedly assassinate my character. The filing of this suit is to compensate for the irreparable damage that has been done to my reputation and to deter these companies from doing such future harm to others."
“Domestic violence is an issue of serious nature, often having grave consequences for true victims with whom we all sympathize. However, it is unconscionable for one to play on the sympathies of the masses by levying false accusations of such heinous acts against an innocent party, simply for the sake of entertainment or for purported career advancement. After reviewing the evidence in this matter, we are prepared to litigate this case to the fullest extent of the law to seek justice for our client and to restore his name and professional reputation.” Moore & Honore
Personally, I can't wait for all of this to play out. It shouldn't be this easy to spread things about a person without any proof. This is a jacked up world that we live in, SMDH.
