Mickey “Memphitz” Wright files Lawsuit Against VH1 & Mona Scott Young for defamation of character.
The suit includes Viacom International, Inc.; NFGTV, Inc.; and Monami Entertainment, LLC, the company owned by Mona Scott-Young. According to the press release Wright is “suing the named Defendants for approximately $1 per viewer per show for damages that stem from the defamatory statements and denigrating actions of cast member Kimberly Michelle Pate aka K.Michelle.
K.Michelle claims, which include allegations that Mr. Wright mismanaged funds and caused her career to ‘flop’, which many of her followers believed of the popular VH-1 reality series.”
Wright said that he seeks compensation for the pain his family has undergone.
“My family and I have suffered tremendously while VH-1, Monami Ent., and the other companies provided a worldwide platform for K. Michelle to repeatedly assassinate my character,” he maintained. “The filing of this suit is to compensate for the irreparable damage that has been done to my reputation and to deter these companies from doing such future harm to others.”
I’m not sure if you knew this or not but Mona Scott tried her best to cast Memphitz in Love & Hip Hop Atlanta which of course would have eliminated any threats of lawsuits arising from the show, but as you can see Memphitz declined to particpate.
Gumbumpers, let me know if you remember K.Michelle mentioning Memphitz name on the show….because I don’t??
