Seaon 1 of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta ended last night, but in reality the drama continues! Memphitz is suing Viacom (VH1) and Mona Scott’s Monami Entertainment, LLC for slander. Love & Hip Hop star K. Michelle has stated numerous times on and off the show that she was abused by her ex-boyfriend/former boss and though she hasn’t actually said his name on television it’s pretty much common knowledge that she’s referring to Memphitz. He and his family have vehimately denied the abuse.
Well, Memphitz has had enough of the allegations and he’s taking the situation to court. He is suing for approximately one dollar per viewer per show. He released the following statement.
“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.”
The lawsuit states:
Ms. Pate (K. Michelle) has taken full advantage of society’s tendency to accept claims of domestic violence as always being true, even in the absence of proof,” says Memphitz’s attorney Conti J. Moore, Esq. “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.”
Is Memphitz within his rights?!
