Domestic violence can happen to anyone — just ask Love and Hip Hop Atlanta star K. Michelle, who was a victim herself. Last August, Michelle teamed up with Young Black and Fabulous (YBF) for her Rebel Against Campaign. The campaign uses videos and pictures on Tumblr to share stories of other women around the country who have experienced forms of abuse.
