Love and Hip-Hop reality star K. Michelle has decided to take a break from social media. The songstress, who has received backlash before, is under scrutiny again for a slew of issues.
Several individuals have questioned the 30-year-old abuse claims via social media, following a leak of court documents, and it has touched a sore spot of the Memphis native.
I’m a lot of things but a liar I’m not. For over five years I’ve been told to be quiet about my life of abuse. And I refused and still refuse to be silenced. I was not punched in the isolated assault and never claimed to be. But what I was, was drug across the room and smothered with a towel, loosing conscience to the point of a black out. And having to fight my way out the room screaming for help. I almost lost my life.
NO FORM of violence is acceptable, especially if I wasn’t hitting or being the aggressor. I have NEVER lied about this. This is another attempt to silence me and another form of abuse. An attempt to gain media attention for the other party who is seeking money (because they have no form of income), and fame. The REAL and OFFICIAL Court documents are on Karen Civil. The truth is clearly stated in these documents. I will not give them what they want, which is time, energy and ATTENTION. No woman should ever go through this. The Truth is in the papers. I won’t act as a victim, but a survivor!!!!
In addition, to being accused of false domestic violence claims, K. Michelle is also disgusted by the comments from a photo of her son and his friend, who suffers from down syndrome.
However, K. Michelle isn’t the first celebrity to “quit” social media. Over the summer, model and actress Yaya Dacosta also decided to step away from social media. Following negative comments in regards to her role as the late Whitney Houston, she said via social media:
Although I’m a private person by nature, I reluctantly heeded the advice of seemingly knowledgeable socialistas who insist that these outlets- Instagram, Twitter etc.- are the new way. “Connect with your fans”, they say. So I swam out of my cozy cave a little, shared a little, held hands a little- only to have those hands of strangers squeeze and pull and punch. They steal your photos, miss the message, and point to delusion. I’m simply an actor for hire- like Whitney would say, just a human being. Until the consumers we pour our hearts out to on stage or on a movie screen learn that “artist” is not a synonym for “punching back”, I’m going back in. Back to basics. Back to instincts. Protecting my family. Projecting only what the public can handle. When we meet in person, love, humanity, and shared light, are real. But as long as ugly, unhappy people sit their happy meal asses on fat couches and spit venom to make themselves feel better, I swim. Thanking God for my beautiful, beautiful family.
Since then, the former “Top Model” has not tweeted and no longer has an Instagram account.
