'Love & Hip Hop' Star K. Michelle

I Stand By My Story ...

Memphitz Beat Me

"Love & Hip Hop" star K. Michelle isn't scared of the defamation lawsuit filed by her ex Memphitz Wright -- telling TMZ, she stands behind her story 100% ... that the music producer beat her during their relationship.

K. Michelle tells us, "I¹ve always been told that the truth shall set you free. I stand behind my story 100%. I came on the 'Love & Hip Hop Atlanta' show mainly because I wanted to give a voice and bring light to a very serious issue."

"I am very grateful to VH1 and Monami Ent. for the opportunity to tell my story, and touch lives worldwide ... I look forward to having my day in court and finally having the truth of my story confirmed in a court of law."

She adds, "Hopefully others will not have to go through this and then have their stories challenged to this degree because people now want to try to salvage whatever reputation they may have had."

We're told K. has since lawyered up with attorney Matt Middleton and plans to fight Memphitz in court. 

Memphitz has sued K. Michelle over comments she made on the "L&HH" premiere this season, when she referred to an unnamed record producer who "beat her ass" during their relationship ... a thinly-veiled reference to Memphitz.

Yup    

Everyone on that stupid "love & hip hop" show was beating on each other, to the point that the producers had to warn all the dumb bitches to stop giving each other stitches. This bitch has absolutely no credibility whatsoever; whatever she vomits out of her mouth is probably a lie...

1 of the requirements to get on he hip hop show is you have to be able to beat someone and get beaten by someone. Drugs are optional but alcohol is required.

It's not defamation if it's true. Hope she has some police reports, witnesses or something. If true, he simply "defamed" himself.

Yeah K....weneed receipts. I don't believe you. Youa re loud and abusive just like Evilyn and you are not fooling me for one second. You are always in someone's face and throwing something at someone. If he beat you up so bad, why did you not call the police??? You are just mad because he married Toya and they are doing well. Yeah TMZ that is the best picture you could find of MepHitz?? Whatever you racist troll baiters!

Lmao these are really something but I believe her . I listened to one of her songs from 2010 i think , she was singing about this situation amd i really fel that **** . Aint no way she would carry on this with this . And he trying to sue Viacom, and Monami, I think they wouldn't have let her go onto their show if they knew they were gonna end up in a lawsuit . There's some truth behind this story. Well it's about to all come out in Court . Go K ! I hope viacom murder his ass in court and drop their ghetto ass show from BET .
