(AllHipHop News) The truth is always deeper than The ‘Gram. This past Monday (August 18th), K. Michelle explained the origins of her beef with her once friend Elle Varner and how the label mate stole her identity.
During BET Awards weekend in late June, K. Michelle sent out disparaging remarks towards Elle Varner on her personal Instagram account alleging that Varner was not getting attention from her music. In her interview with Hot 97’s Ebro In The Morning, the R&B songstress accuses Varner of stealing an unreleased song of hers as inspiration for Varner’s single “Cold Case”:
But she played me a record. She said, ‘You like the record?’ I said, ‘That’s my record. Ain’t nobody yodeling on the hooks but me.’ Then you went to the same producers. I came to [her] like a woman. I said, ‘This is my record. You can’t put that out. That sounds like me.’ [She copied my style.] But I said it to you as a friend in a proper manner. I said it to management in a proper manner.
Michelle stated Varner “wanted attention because we don’t give a f–k about that India.Arie a– music.” Another point of contention between the two singers was a shared interest in Meek Mill:
I did have a crush on Meek. We do that. You know that as my friend, me and Meek do this. You get on Twitter and say, ‘Yeah Meek tried to talk to me and I swerved him.’ Okay, why would you do that to your friend? But I’m the crazy one. I’m the mean one.
