Memphitz Loses Out in 65 Million Dollar Lawsuit

k-michelle-memphitz-thatgrapejuiceFormer Jive Records executive Mickey “Memphitz” Wright Jr. lost his defamation case against the owners of VH1, producers of the network’s hit show “Love Hip Hop Atlanta” and his ex after his former girlfriend R & B singer Kimberly Michelle Pate (who was known on the show as K. Michelle) accused him of physical abuse and embezzlement on the show.

In the lawsuit filed Memphitz asked for $15 million in compensatory damages and $50 million in punitive damages.

In depositions he acknowledged he got into a physical altercation with K Michelle in a Memphis hotel altercation in 2009 and had spent money from Jive Record’s budget for jewelry, not to help her career, and had sent a text message threatening to kill K. Michelle’s son. (Dayum son! Really?!)

He later tried to backtrack from say he didn’t. The judge wasn’t having any of that.

For details:


Michelle, who says she was beat by her ex -boyfriend Memphitz, had gone on a Twitter rant about his wife Toya Wright. Toya denies the allegations made against Memphitz.  Despite the bitter feud between the ladies, K. Michelle’s graphic PSA is an attempt to help bring more awareness to the domestic abuse epidemic this country is in today.

While the abuse came out in 2012 and the lawsuit filed right after, the decision ended this past Friday, three years later. People are still talking about it though.

“We were having a normal argument and it would get more and more intense. We were fighting about a performance,” she says. “He ‘s the boss, I’m already big-mouthed and it just got ‘OK. I’m tired of this b**ch.” Things escalated from there. “I was smothered with a towel, ya hit me in my head with a [water] bottle I was bruised up.” It was nothing small, I was bruised up, I was bleeding. I was climbing crawling to get out the door.”

The troopers discovered in the sleeper area a plastic bag that contained five colored crystal-type rocks that tested positive for methamphetamine, as well as a small amount of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia.

Further investigation revealed approximately 100 small Ziploc bags that are commonly associated with the sale of narcotics and numerous handguns, including a gold-plated 50-caliber Desert Eagle pistol, a 45-caliber Tarus pistol, and a 500 magnum Smith and Wesson.
