Why am I NOT shocked about this?
So while we were all getting our laugh on during this season of ‘Love And Hip Hop Atlanta’, Memphitz was clearly not amused.
Memphitz recently got himself a lawyer and filed a lawsuit against Viacom International; NFGTC, Inc.; and Ms.Mona Scotts company, Monami Entertainment. Memphitz is basically saying VH1 gave K.Michelle a platform to run his name through the mud and pretty much ruin his reputation:
“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.”
As for what his attorney, Conti J. Moore has to say:
“[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. 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.”
“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.”
According to Necole Bitchie, Memphitz is asking for $1 per viewer PER SHOW, and seeing that each episode the show brought in 3 million viewers you can just guess how much he would get if he won his settlement.
Personally I’m wondering if Mona is going to try to convince K.Michelle to release her evidence.
What do you think of all this?
