Elle Varner Brushes Off K. Michelle Shade

"Cold Case" singer says, "I don't do drama;" clears up songwriting rumor.

Published July 3, 2014

Elle Varner is not so interested in engaging K. Michelle in any beef.

Michelle took a hit at her onetime friend on Instagram last week, seemingly reacting to a photo of her embracing Meek Mill. "People be smiling in the pictures not knowing they getting dissed in the caption. HA! You definitely need a REFILL as thirsty as you are," she wrote. 

In response, Varner told The Jasmine Brand, "That's unfortunate that she feels the way she feels, I don't. I never have … I don't do drama. I don't." 

Varner also explained that the Meek photo was taken out of context. "If anyone remembers the Meek Mill drama and me saying I 'curved' him, and then it was like this big thing," she said. "That was our first time seeing each other since and we laughed it off. It was funny."

The fallout between the friends isn't over Meek, it's about music. The "V.S.O.P." singer claims she co-wrote Varner's "Cold Case" track and didn't receive credit. Varner was adamant that she penned the song alone. "I wrote 'Cold Case' by the way, no one else did," she said. 

Michelle is done publicizing personal conflicts on social media for now. Instead, the Memphis native is preparing to "sing it all out" at the Essence Music Festival this weekend.
