American R&B singer, a songwriter, a television personality, a guitarist and a pianist, Kimberly Michelle Pate, better known by her stage name K. Michelle, last night during her show in Atlanta, made a big announcement; she informed her teeming fans that she is starting a new phase of her life with a medical doctor – her ‘perfect man’- and that they are ready to start a family.
But that’s not all. Prior to that announcement, Michelle, who had previously dated actor Idris Elba, put up his photo in the backdrop as she talked about how she dated bad boys in the past, and got her heart broken.
Recall that the singer called off her relationship with Elba in 2014 after 8 months of dating, and in her chat with Wendy Williams later that year, she said she let him go so that he would have time for his baby mama. Here’s what she said, as reported by Essence:
“I met him at the Soul Train Awards and we just clicked. There was a situation. He has a child and I’m not going to get in the way of that. Y’all not gonna call me the home wrecker, call me any of that. Me, I desire a lot of attention and time and when there’s a newborn, you have to give your time and attention to [them]. When I met him, I did find out that he had a woman. But I did not know they still had that situation. So I kind of looked up and saw that I was the side chick.”
However, the singer still held on to a lot of bitterness after that, as she revealed that most of the songs on her album Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart is about her relationship with Elba. In June 2015, she wrote him a stinker email, saying, “I don’t want to destroy you or the penis that was inside of me.”
Now, Michelle is happily moving on with a ‘perfect man’, a doctor with whom, she is ready to start a family.
