K.Michelle Responds To Skin Bleaching Rumors
On Thursday, gossip website MediaTakeOut published an outlandish report claiming that singer K.Michelle has been trying to lighten her skin.
“Love & Hip-Hop Shocker: Have Y’all Seen K Michelle Lately?” they titled the story. “She’s looking like she bleached the f*ck outta her skin!! She’s a Barbie doll now. We knew that something was different about K.Michelle since we were first introduced to her back on the first season of Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta. Her skin color.”
The website included this photograph as evidence of their claim.
But Michelle, always one to respond to tabloid fodder, took to Twitter to shut down the rumor, writing:
“Only a FOOL would believe I would bleach my skin. The only thing I bleach is my wig tips. Have a seat!”
Maybe the people who work at MTO have never heard of a flash before, but it something that photographers use on red carpets add light to photographs. Now, we’re not rocket scientists, but it looks to us like someone with a hot flash made the singer’s skin appear lighter than it really is.
