Earlier this summer, fans were shocked to see that former friends K. Michelle and Elle Varner had a nasty falling out online amid rumors that Varner slept with K. Michelle’s alleged ex, Meek Mill. Although Varner later claimed that she ended the friendship because K. Michelle is too dramatic, K. Michelle is now speaking up about the fall out and claiming that things fell apart because Varner tried to steal her music and her personality.
In a new interview with Hot 97 personality Ebro, K. Michelle denied rumors that she dated Meek and claimed that he had nothing to do with her fall out with Varner.
That’s what they want to think. I have never slept with Meek in my life. We flirt and poke, but we don’t poke. So it wasn’t any of that,” K. Michelle explained.
Instead, K. Michelle says that after Varner broke up with her boyfriend, New York Knicks player Iman Shumpert, she let the heartbroken singer listen to a new record she was working on. However, after her management team, MBK, which she shares with Varner, told her not to do the record, she says that Varner stole it from her.
“I had a record, it was my favorite record but I wasn’t allowed to put out that record because management said it was too big. I’m supposed to be the little black girl singing about heartbreak and I’m not supposed to grow and be me. They place you in a lane and make you stay in that lane,” said K. Michelle.
“It would have to be worked in every format. It’s always ‘not yet.’ With that situation for my friend at that time, I played the record — next thing I know she threw her shoe, jumped and said, ‘oh my God, this is a great record.’ When she went through that break up with Iman she was searching for a identity. She wanted to be more sexy and she was hanging around me and started to curse — But she played me a record and she said ‘you like my record,’ and I was like, ‘that’s my record.’ Then you went to the same producer, I came to you like a woman, I said, ‘this my record, you put that out, that sounds like me,’” K. Michelle said.
She explains that she tried to handle the matter peacefully, but says that their management favors Varner more because she’s the good girl.
“When I look up and you let her sing my record, when I’m the only one booking shows every week and paying 20 percent commission and you can say Elle Varner, the queen of MBK …. So the Twitter post, that caused so much of it. If you know I did have a crush on Meek and you know that as my friend that me and Meek do this, you get on Twitter and say, ‘Meek tried to talk to me and I swerved him.’ Okay, why would you do that to your friend? She wanted attention because no one gives a f— about that India Arie music. No offense to India Arie,” K. Michelle said.
Well, after saying all of that, there’s certainly no chance that K. Michelle and Varner will ever reconcile. And we wonder how things will be between K. Michelle and her management now that she’s accused them of blatant favoritism. – nicholas robinson
