MemPhitz opens up about his epic fight with Viacom, splitting with his wife Toya and the damage K. Michelle has done in an explosive new interview. Listen to it inside…
Former music exec MemPhitz (shown above with his new tattoo) appeared on Chicago’s 107.5 WGCI this week where he called into the “Kyle, Kendra & Leon IN the Morning” show to discuss his lawsuit with Viacom, the split with Toya Wright, getting cut out of Reginae’s “Sweet Sixteen” and a host of other hot button issues.
While we’ve seen him speak on these issues before, there were some new tidbits. He revealed that he and Lil Wayne are very “Cool” and Wayne even thanked him for being a father to Reginae. Also, he says K. Michelle made up the “abuse” allegations because he wouldn’t let her out of her contract and she was pissed that he was getting married. He also said he’s mad people didn’t respect his brand like they respect Toya’s.
