Well, Lyfe Jennigs (who was released from jail back in March) along with the crowd in Tampa Straz Center where K. Michelle was set to perform along with Lyfe & Musiq Soulchild this past Sunday thought so. Apparently things went downhill fast when she decided she didn’t like her placement in the show.
According to one concertgoer:
I am angry at Kimberly Michelle Pate (K Michelle). She was scheduled to perform in my hometown Tampa, Florida along with Musiq Soulchild and Lyfe Jennings. In the promoters (Vybenation) contract she was to perform before Lyfe, but in her mind she felt as though she’s a “BIGGER” artist than him. So she threw a Diana Ross diva tantrum. Not only did she NOT perform and let her fans down, she blocked literally half of Tampa on twitter. K also said that she only perform for sold out shows. She went on to say that the promoters didn’t do they’re job, which isn’t true. She got paid $5000. Now my city is yelling #WHOISKMICHELLE.
This @kmichelle is so funny. She don’t wanna go on before me???? Before Lyfe??? Its cool i wish u the best love… We kilt it!!!
Shout out to @musicsoulchild for being a hell of a performer AND a hell of a individual…im a fan of the real…period.
While back at the ranch K Michelle also tweeted:
I’ve never missed a show a day in my life. I would never stand my fans up period. I was told no by the promoters, he didn’t like my request.
What are your thoughts? And while your thinking…. Check out this video of K. Michelle and Royce (Formally of BBW) right after it happened.. Apparently these two have been friends since college.
