The couple that fights together stays together? “Basketball Wives LA” star Draya Michele and her boyfriend, Dallas Cowboys player Orlando Scandrick, have one of the most tumultuous relationships in the game. Less than a week after Draya gave an interview where she said she and her beau were trying to patch things up, Draya blasted Scandrick by posting photos to Instagram after they had a fight Monday night.
Draya, 30, shared a picture of clothes scattered all over her room. “The cornball of the year award goes to the man who went so far out of his way to make me look crazy but is actually a little himself,” Draya wrote in the now-deleted post, as documented by the Instagram account The Shade Room.
The Bravo reality star didn’t issue a statement when Scandrick ended their relationship in a public statement to TMZ, and there was a reason for it. “That’s why I stayed silent,” Draya said. “The truth was [going to] reveal itself.”
The photos have since been removed, but not before Draya got into a fight with “BBWLA” co-star and foe Mehgan James. Mehgan and Draya are far from friends. Most “BBWLA” fans will remember when Draya accused Mehgan of having a "fupa," which is a “fat upper pelvic area.”
Mehgan took advantage of Draya’s personal problems and accused her of faking the fight with Scandrick. “Every football player I know is in training camp right now. Pre-season starts next week. This is clearly staged and old,” Mehgan wrote, according to a screenshot taken by The Shade Room. “I commend her publicist and, above all, her man. [Because] any man that would allow his woman to make him look like a jack--- to the world truly loves her. They deserve each other.”
“Basketball Wives LA” airs on VH1 on Sundays at 10 p.m. EDT.
