Our girl K. Michelle is back at it!

While most were applauding her vocal showing at fellow ‘Love & Hip Hop’ alumni Yandy Smith‘s recent wedding, there were some –  namely R&B soulstress Jaguar Wright – who weren’t so impressed.  Taking to Instagram to lend the disapproval, it wasn’t long before Michelle got word of Jaguar’s detraction and pounced to lend her own fiery response.

This, just a day after she officially announced her new ‘Cheaters’-inspired television show was green lit for VH1 and that she’s readying a re-release of her sophomore album ‘Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart.’

In need of a K. Michelle fix?  Get all the latest news below:

K. Michelle’s Response (courtesy of TSR): Screen shot 2015-05-27 at 12.00.26 AM To boot, Michelle’s fan base – #Rebels – followed their leader’s suit and flooded Wright’s page with negative remarks.  The result?  The songstress went on the defense and uploaded a series of “clap back” videos like this:


In other K. Michelle news, the songstress took to Forbes magazine recently to offer some exciting announcements, including an endorsement deal with Jack Daniels, re-release of her sophomore album ‘Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart,’ and more (via Forbes):

K: I am the first African-American who’s ever had a contractual endorsement by [Jack Daniels]. I’m taking a lot of fans with me to the BET awards, and that’s all on J.D.

K: I am opening my first business, a hookah bar and lounge in Atlanta. We have the liquor license in process. I’m not just the face of it. It’s my real business, my lane, everything. I’m also opening up a beauty shop on my old college campus, because I feel like girls need to be beautiful and I’m going to make the prices reasonable.

K: …We’re repackaging the album Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart? – it’ll be out with the TV show. It’s a different sound. I’ve been back and forth with everybody as to the direction of my growth, and I’m just rebelling, following my heart. If you can’t follow your heart, you can’t follow anything.
There was growth on that album. It did great for r&b, and I’m going to re-package it and now I’m going to get into the music that I feel, that I love, and I’m not going to let anybody box me because of the color of my skin or my past. I’m going to do the re-packaging, and I’m going to do one more album. If I’m not allowed to sing the music that I want to sing, then I’m prepared to walk away.

K: I have the production company that produced Kevin Hart’s sitcom on BET currently writing me a scripted show. I’ve been really focused on acting.
Also, a brand-new show’s about to come out where I catch men cheating.

    lmaoooo why did k have to drag her like that and p.s. who is that jaguar lady never heard of her

    • #1lamb May 27, 2015

      Jaguar Wright is an R&B singer from Philadelphia. She had no really big main stream hits but to the under ground scene she has a name and two albums out. Oh and this was years ago. If my memory is right late late 90’s and early 00’s.

    • ladygodiva May 28, 2015

      She was famous for singing with Jayz on his MTV unplugged..the girl can blow kmichelles teeth str8…

  2. Aaliyah_Rihanna May 27, 2015

    K.michelle did ok to me. Her voice isn’t that great to begin w/ though ????

  3. Banks’ #1 Fan. Chile, go buy Goddess right now! May 27, 2015

    I don’t care for the beef going on, but I have been obsessed with the singles released from her new album thus far. I seriously love her new one, “Hard to Do”. Whoever said that she makes music for hoodrats is completely wrong. Is it bad to like her music?

    • Lake Erie May 27, 2015

      Nope, she does make great music. I heard one of her songs called: “Cry”. Smh. Talk about making a song cry? I Def felt her in that song.

      • Banks’ #1 Fan. Chile, go buy Goddess right now! May 27, 2015

        I heard that! Run to the nearest mountain, climb to it’s top, and yell it, sis! I’m here for it!

      • Lake Erie May 27, 2015

        Lol! Yes!

  4. Theman May 27, 2015

    K.Michelle’s voice was just aight. The other chick has a nice voice. K. Michelle acts as though she has multiple platinum albums. Her albums barely sale 250k a piece. She doesn’t have any top ten AirPlay hits. She’s successful by reality TV standards in music.

    • BeyRihLiyah May 27, 2015

      she’s still doing a 100 times better than that jaguar chick

    • Lake Erie May 27, 2015

      Lol you ain’t right lol. She definitely a well represented success story compared to A Lot of reality stars though. I’m happy for her.

    • King May 27, 2015

      Lol you’re just saying that to be different k Michelle has a nice voice I know she’s bat s*** crazy but don’t be a hater

  5. Lake Erie May 27, 2015

    K Michelle may have her ratchet moments STILL, no matter how much or how long she tries to escape them or push em away. But I can say she is one of the few artist in my opinion who still makes that good ole R&B music besides, brandy, Tyrese, and a few others.

  6. #TeamTinashe Stan May 27, 2015

    I thought it was a man dissing her. I never heard of Jaguar Wright but that little sigh that went like “H’awwww” at the end literally had me LIVING! LOL.

    • credits May 27, 2015

      she’ll never cross over. the persona we’ve seen on tv ruined her image overall, she will always be boxed in now.

    • Everyone’s A Critic May 27, 2015

      Thank you for introducing me to this song! I’m sure it’s not on the album??? But that was beautiful. Love K Michelle

      • PrettyGurlTot June 3, 2015

        It’s on the deluxe edition

  7. Jamie May 27, 2015

    She and CB never learn. Silence is indeed golden. Jaguar said no disrespect. Isn’t a person entitled to an opinion anymore? I hate when people feel they’re better and feel the need to bash what they feel someone else doesn’t have. That’s low on K’s part. Humbled us the way!

  8. kp May 27, 2015

    K sit over that b****.Her voice is amazing.Maybe she was mad that she didnt get the exposure and time to shine

  9. credits May 27, 2015

    i heard of jaguar wright back when i was in grade 7. i had no idea that song was by Leela, they could have at least mentioned that during the show. it’s hard out here for black soul singers so leela definitely could have used that recognition and she would have done a way better job than k. michelle. K michelle stating that her and leela have the same management just seems shady to me….obviously leela needs new management because if they let that happen, it is clear that leela is not a priority.

    • Yoncè May 27, 2015

      Vh1 gave Lelah Her Props right after before it went to commercial it said “Leelah James-Fall For You Sung By Kmichelle” that’s how everybody knew it was Leelah song TBH

  10. Everyone’s A Critic May 27, 2015

    What was that little skit jaguar did??? B**** this ain’t church.. You made a fool out of yourself. You got Dragged by the best to ever drag!
    You don’t wanna p*** K off to the point where you’re crying on TV like Tamar.

    • Len75 August 22, 2020

      Yet we are here in 2029 and Kmart is barely even mentioned anymore unless my little pony has gotten into it with someone. You stans are delusional and need to go graze with my little pony in the green pastures!!!

      • Len75 August 22, 2020

        Correction “2020.”

  11. Barb-wire May 27, 2015

    Just focus on the music sis and stop beefing with err’body in the music business.

  12. Blacksista May 27, 2015

    Hate all the fighting R&B is suffering because of it. As far as K, I have pretty much purchased all her singles I guess it’s time to invest in the album. I am a fan!

  13. SMH May 27, 2015

    She did an interview with Forbes? Well that goes to show the level of relevance and credibility they have. #ijs

  14. True Lamb May 27, 2015

    i wish her nothing but success but to me she doesnt stand out from any other artist i dont see a gold album in her career… her voice sounds like a horse singing… if her reality show returns i will watch it because she is sorta entertaining

  15. Rihicon May 27, 2015

    if she didn’t get b*** injections and had a better attitude I think she would be a lot more popular

  16. TheElusiveLamb May 27, 2015

    I mean sure K dragged her, but why? IDK why these artists are so sensitive. Like it’s not that serious. You can’t make everyone like you and even though I have never heard of Jaguar, she was right. The performance simply was not all that. She was doing way too much in a song that required way too little.

    • Rihicon May 27, 2015

      she was yodeling way too much 🙁

  17. You wanna love it right bettor like you do then my funky money May 28, 2015

    K Michelle did ok but dang k Michelle drag that girl out lol ????
