K Michelle has been through several unsuccessful relationships. During the early years of her career, while she struggled to find her feet in the music industry, the musician was in an abusive relationship with American rapper and music producer, Mickey Wright, popularly known as Memphitz. Their relationship, which lasted for about a year (2008-2009), ended with a court case after Memphitz beat up Michelle.

Michelle was later in a secret relationship with the famous British actor, Idris Elba between 2013 and 2014. The reality star only opened up about the secret fling after it had already ended. Other celebrities K Michelle has dated include singer R. Kelly, footballer Chris Johnson, swimmer Ryan Lotche, and basketballers J.R Smith, Lance Stephenson, and Bobby Maze.

In 2015, K Michelle started dating a fellow Memphis native and high school mate – Kastan Sims – who is now a dentist. Michelle’s relationship with Kastan appears to be the longest she has ever been in, especially since making it to the spotlight. Although none of the duo has confirmed it, there have been rumors time and again that the musician and Kastan are engaged. Some also claim they have already married in a private ceremony.

Discover How Many Kids The American Musician Has

K Michelle had a son named Chase Bowman while still a college student. She had to stop attending classes for a while in order to give birth and nurse her child. After this, however, she returned to her studies.

Her son, Chase Bowman, was born in September 2004. On his 15th birthday in 2019, she gave Chase a new Mercedes Benz truck. During an October 2019 interview, Michelle lamented on the difficulties she is experiencing in raising her son, Chase. According to her, he ran out of the house on a date with a white girl against her instructions.

K Michelle had Chase with her then-boyfriend, Brian Bowman, who had wanted to marry her then. However, she refused to settle down with him because she was determined to become a music star which she felt starting a family will forestall. Brian went on to marry one of Michelle’s sorority sisters. Despite not talking to Brian for years, Michelle later changed her mind for the sake of their son. The singer approached him to assist in raising Chase, and he complied.

So far, K Michelle has had no other child. She has, however, expressed the desire to have kids with her present partner, Dr. Kastan Sims. However, due to fertility issues (especially complications from lupus), the reality star and Sims have chosen to achieve their dream through surrogacy. The couple precisely wants to have twin girls. She later revealed in a tweet in 2019 that the twins were on the way.

It had earlier emerged that Michelle wanted to use a lady called Tannae, a mother of four (a set of triplet girls and a boy) as her surrogate. Tannae and her boyfriend also confirmed this in a video posted on the former’s YouTube channel. Michelle, however, changed her mind about using Tannae as her surrogate after the latter and her boyfriend started exploiting the opportunity to earn contracts on TV. The Rebellious Soul singer shed more light on this during a January 2020 interview.

Meanwhile, K Michelle is still working hard to have her dream of having the twins come through. She also uses her social media platform like Instagram to update fans on her challenges and encourage them too.
