R&B singer K. Michelle had fans dazed after posting a photo of her little sister Shalah Pate on social media this weekend.
The 35-year-old singer and her little sister apparently look just alike, and fans had a hard time telling the difference between the two. The celeb took to Instagram on Sunday and reposted an image of Pate, who seemingly looks just like her.
In the photo, Pate sported her natural tresses and bare face while promoting skin-care product Hand MB, which is marketed as helping reduce fine lines and wrinkles on hands. Before posting the picture of her baby sis to her page, K. Michelle chimed into her sister’s comments and wrote, “You pretty b–ch,” to which Pate replied, “Thanks sis, I’m your twin duhhhh 😍.”
The “Can’t Raise a Man” artist then added on her personal page with the photo of the 29-year-old, “My baby sister is gorgeous.”
Fans of the star were confused and quickly did a “double take.”
“Damn I thought this was you K!” one person commented underneath K. Michelle’s picture. “She so pretty y’all look alike 💖.”
“Thought it was u for a minute .. I had to a double take 😎,” another fan wrote. “Both of you ladies are beautiful!!!🙏🏾look like twins ❤️🖤😘.”
“Twinzzzz baby,” another added. “Girlll I thought this was you with no makeup 😭😩.”
“And she looks just like you K😍,” someone else said. “Y’all twins if u ask me.”
Pate, who’s a child and adolescent therapist, first appeared on her sister’s reality show “K. Michelle: My Life” in 2016 along with the singer’s then boyfriend Bobby Maze, a former basketball player.
K. Michelle and Maze dated off and on for years, but the singer called it quits with him around 2015 after she caught him talking to Instagram models on social media. She revealed to fans during her show that she had an abortion by Maze after she found out that he’d lied to her about having four children.
“Bobby tells me he has only one child…I later find out there’s four f**king babies. Four baby mamas,” the singer said. “What man can deny their own kids? If you can do that to your own children what the f**k will you do to me?”
K. Michelle has since moved on past that relationship and appears to be working toward bringing in twins with a surrogate and her longtime companion Kastan Sims, whom she’s known for 19 years. She wrote on her Instagram Story December 19, “My Surrogate has been approved!They say she’s really kind and a perfect match for my babies. I thank God for her.”
