Tamar Braxton, the 35-year-old singer-songwriter, recently defended her decision to not speak positively about fellow singer K.Michelle after the latter publicly attempted to end their feud.
Braxton and K. Michelle began feuding last year, when the latter spoke about being abused by Mickey "Memphitz" Wright. Wright, a music industry executive who used to work with Jive Records where K. Michelle was once his artist, is also married to Braxton's good friend Toya Wright.
After K.Michelle read some tweets from Braxton speaking about letting the "girl" live her "fairy tale" she assumed they were referring to her and took to iPower 92.1 FM's radio show with TT Torrez to speak negatively on the singer. According to S2S Magazine reports, Braxton responded to K.Michelle with a cease and desist letter from her attorneys last year. more >>
