Recently, MempHitz lost in the defamation lawsuit he filed against VH1, “Love & Hip Hop” producers and ex-flame K. Michelle. And he’s not happy about it. So what does he do? He takes his frustrations to Instagram! Of course. Peep the video clips MempHitz posted trying to expose K and his thoughts on black women being the demise of powerful black men when you go inside….
After two-and-half years since filing a lawsuit against Viacom, “LAHH” producers and his ex-flame K. Michelle, it has come to an end. Well, sort of.
You’ll recall, the former Jive record exec sued VH1, “LAHH” producers, Monami Entertainment and (later) K. Michelle (real name Kimberly Michelle Pate) for defamation in September 2012, after K went on the reality series making accusations that MempHitz physically abused her. In the multi-million dollar suit, he also made claims of embezzlement on the program. Although K never said his name on the show, it was pretty clear whom she was referring to when she touched on being physically abused.
Toya Wright’s estranged husband was seeking $15 million in compensatory damages and $50 million in punitive damages, but that all went out of the window after Fulton County judge Robert McBurney decided to side with the defendants last week.
Now he’s mad. So, as most celebs do nowadays, he took to Instagram to air out his frustrations in a series of Instagram video clips of K’s deposition footage.
In a series of posts to try and expose K as a liar, Memphitz dug up a “LAHH” episode clip of K claiming she still had possession of every text message allegedly sent from MempHitz where he threatened to kill her son.
In another IG clip, K is sitting on the stand during her deposition where MempHitz’s attorney asks K if she ever presented the alleged texts to her attorney or Monami Entertainment (show creator Mona Scott Young’s entertainment company), in which she replied, “No.” Then, he posts another deposition clip where K reveals she does NOT still have possession of the alleged texts. She responded, “No, I don’t keep text messages. You know, I have a life.”
Peep the clips below:

These videos clearly didn’t do him any good in a court of law since he had to prove K’s abuse allegations were false, he had to prove he’s more of a private figure than a “public” figure and he had to prove that VH1 aired the allegations knowing they were false claims.
According to the AJC, he also had to prove the allegations were “injurious to his reputation and was published with a degree of fault at least amounting to negligence.” Welp…he clearly left doubt in the judge’s mind, so he ruled against him, giving K and VH1 the victory in the case.
And there’s more….
Following the ruling in his case, he also posted an Instagram post that had us raising our eyebrows and scratching our heads. In so many words, MempHitz believes there are three things that destroy a black man of a certain status, and apparently, black women are one of them!
He posted the photo above (and then deleted) with the caption,
“Keep walking around unaware of that & You’ll feel me soon enough. Good thing I Got God. Because some of you fools is foofooAf. ShoutOut to the Real. & The Great Thinkers. Keep making the World Go Round.#TheRealWillReadThis inARealWay”
He then tried to save face with a follow-up post saying:
