K. Michelle may be saying goodbye to “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” … again. The singer and reality star sparked rumors she was quitting the VH1 show after she hinted at her exit in a message to a fan on Instagram.
According to All Hip Hop, K. Michelle celebrated Patti LaBelle’s birthday by sharing a photo of them singing together on stage. In the comments section, one fans begged the “Not a Little Bit” singer to leave ”Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” because it was “not a good look” for her. K. Michelle supposedly wrote back to the fan saying she was “never going back again.” She added, “No amount of money in the world!”
As previously reported, K. Michelle announced during a December concert that she was returning to the show for Season 5, which is currently airing. At the time, she also told the crowd that she had unresolved issues with one of her castmates. In a recent episode of the show, K. Michelle wanted to brag about her success so she invited her friends and frenemies to an album listening party. Even though a majority of her frenemies didn’t show up, there still was still some drama when K. Michelle offended D. Smith and her friend Betty Idol. Security also had to step in and keep Bambi from fighting D. Smith.
Last month, K. Michelle dished on returning to “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” saying on “The Wendy Williams Show” that the main reason she came back was because of the hefty paycheck. “They offered me a lot of money,” she explained. “And also I did great with marketing on there. I have a restaurant I’m about to open in Atlanta, I have this Jack Daniels endorsement, I’m the first African-American to ever be endorsed by Jack … so I needed it.”
However, K. Michelle did tell host Wendy Williams that being on the VH1 show led people to assume that she was always the “angry black woman” after she got into a fight with another cast member. “I’ve always been opinionated, but I feel like being on that show, being opinionated and throwing a drink are different things,” she said. “So I was on that show, and it was the lowest point of my life, and now people don’t want me to live that down. I just keep fighting, and I just keep improving. I can’t please everybody.”
