Watch: K. Michelle Gets Emotional While Discussing Her Past Relationship With R. Kelly + Addresses Beef With Loni Love

K. Michelle has always been open about R. Kelly being her mentor in the music industry, but always appears hesitant to discuss what went on behind closed doors during their relationship. 

However, the former "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star hinted that Kelly was abusive during her appearance on "The Real."

Michelle is currently promoting her new album, telling the co-hosts she "got out of the situation" with the R&B singer.

Adrienne Houghton asked K. Michelle about her song, "Build A Man", where she sang about her past relationships. The lyrics even state, "There was Kellz, he adored me/Loved to hear me sing but control me."

Adrienne said, "You’ve been open about your relationship with R. Kelly in your song 'Build A Man,' calling him 'controlling.' Now I’m sure you’ve also heard a lot of the stories from a lot of the women – and in many cases, underage women…that were accusing him, like our past guest, we actually had Jerhonda Pace on the show, who have come forward also saying that he is controlling and has taken advantage of them. So what are your thoughts about this?"

K. Michelle responded, "That gets kind of tricky for me, um, because I see it from two different perspectives – I see it as, you know, this is my mentor, he taught me everything I know about recording, about how to write, the importance of just doing music. And you want to have loyalty for that, but at the same time, I was the girl who was saying something happened to me, and the world told me that it didn’t happen. And so, when I’m looking on the blogs, and I see girls telling their stories, and women all up under these comments like, ‘That didn’t happen. Oh she lyin.’"

She continued, "It breaks my heart because I was once that girl, like somebody know the truth, nobody gonna take up for me? So it’s left me in a very, you know, funny place, people have asked, this is really the first place I’m speaking about it. I got out of the situation. It was something that I think affected how I thought of myself and how I love men, and you know, I was able to get out of it. So all I can say is to make sure you watch when you tell somebody a specific event didn’t happen to them. Because they could be really going through something. So I’m not here to say if those girls did, did he do that, whatever, all I know is that, you know, everything isn’t always what it seems, especially in the music business."


During her appearance, Michelle also made amends with host Loni Love, who the singer previously bashed on Twitter. Michelle had called Love many horrible names, which included "ham hock" and "roast beef." 


Thankfully, the ladies let it be known they had squashed their beef:

Today on #TheReal, K. Michelle and Loni set the record straight.
