Rucuss staffDecember 17, 2014

K. Michelle couldn’t contain her emotions when she shared details about her eight-month relationship with Idris Elba.

The Can’t Raise A Man singer broke down into tears while talking about her relationship Elba on Russ Parr’s Morning Show on Tuesday. K. Michelle, who wrote her latest album about Elba, talked about being the “black Taylor Swift” because she used her real life relationship troubles as inspiration for her album, Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart?.

The reality star seemed fine until the DJ played a song off the album called Miss You, Goodbye. K. Michelle sings about hurting and missing a past love all day and night. When she tried to explain what caused their separation, her emotions got the best of her, forcing Russ to cut to a commercial break.


Check out an excerpt of the interview below.

Alfreda: How’s Idris responded to the album? Has he?

K Michelle: He sent me an email saying it was art and he’s sad it’s come to this.


A lot of the things– we keep certain things– with us, it’s still private. It still is what it is, but with my music [Idris] knows that with my music, I’m like the black Taylor Swift, I’m gonna write about you and I’m gonna talk about you and he really has no choice.

So within the past week, I have not spoken to him about it and I’m sure he’s a little bothered. But my thing is, I feel like I’ve protected you for so long. These are my emotions that I deserve. I have to now protect myself and deal with my emotions. I love him and always will.

Russ: Now that you put it all in perspective, it’s sad. That’s tough to get through I guess.

K Michelle: It’s not a hate thing, we don’t hate each other. It’s the timing. It’s a timing thing you know? [K. begins to cry]

Russ immediately cut to a commercial break. Listen to the interview below.
