For months now, people have been wondering why Memphitz was so quiet and didn’t at least attempt to stop K. Michelle or file a lawsuit if any of the allegations of abuse that she’d made against him were false.
Just one day after the final Love & Hip Hop Atlanta reunion show aired, Mickey Memphitz Wright has decided to do just that. The federal lawsuit was filed against Viacom International, Inc., NFGTV Inc., and Mona Scott-Young’s Monami Entertainment, LLC.
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.
MediaHunterPR has released the following press release in regards to the lawsuit:
Atlanta, GA-September 4, 2012-Mickey Wright, Jr. p/k/a MeMpHiTz, is filing a federal lawsuit against the creators and producers of the popular VH-1 reality television show “Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta.”
Attorneys Conti J. Moore, Esq. of Conti Moore Law, PLLC and Alcide L. Honoré, Esq. of Hooper & Honoré, LLC, are representing Mr. Wright. He is filing suit against the following entities: Viacom International, Inc.; NFGTV, Inc.; and Monami Entertainment, LLC.
Wright is suing the named Defendants for approximately one dollar per viewer per show for damages that stem from the defamatory statements and denigrating actions of cast member Kimberly Michelle Pate p/k/a K. Michelle.
According to Attorney Conti J. Moore, Esq., whose practice is based in Orlando, Florida, ‘Ms. Pate 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.’
Atlanta based Attorney Alcide L. Honoré, Esq. maintains that, ‘even the most ridiculous statements when repeated frequently become true in the minds of many. Ms. Pate’s preposterous claims, which include allegations that Mr. Wright mismanaged funds and caused her career to ‘flop’, have been adopted as truth by many followers of the popular VH-1 reality series.’
Wright maintains that the suit is not about revenge but is instead about defending himself and his professional reputation from the malicious false and misleading statements made about him on the popular VH-1 reality show.
Looks like K. Michelle will have no choice but to show those receipts now. Post your thoughts!
