'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.

I believe her cuz it happen to me. I was beaten and tortured by my first husband which no one knew. I kept it a secret I just nursed my wounds until it healed but my mind was not at peace. When I left my husband and told people what he done to me they would not believe me. I wished back in the 70s that there were more awareness towards abuse.

Truth    

Im so tired of people asking for police reports i grew up in a home where my dad beat my mom sometimes unconscious. I've witnesed this with my own eyes & there were never police reports filed...Its amazing that his friends come around and say he's the nicest person that they've ever met!!! I said that to say this not everyone files police reports & just because they dont doesnt mean nothing ever happened

i wouldn't necessarily trust a black womens claim of domestic abuse... it is generally them doing the hitting and then lying on the phone to police that you have a weapon... pretty vivid idiea, huh?

I believe that he really did this to her. I was in a emotionally abusive relationship and left when I was 5&1/2 months pregnant. He didn't hit me but I knew he was different and he scared me. Now he has a new "baby momma" & is kicking her ass on a regular basis. Not everyone leaves or calls the police...people are different. I believe her...you can see she still has a lot of pain behind this.
