Is the saga of Draya Michele and Orlando Scandrick over for good this time? Draya confirmed on Thursday that she and Orlando have called it quits again. Draya is currently six months pregnant with Orlando’s son and was reportedly even planning her wedding after becoming engaged to the NFL star a second time back in August, 2015. This time, news of Draya and Orlando’s breakup comes after rumors that the Dallas Cowboys star may have been cheating on his reality-star fiance.
In an Instagram message that has since been deleted, according to TMZ, Draya Michele wrote, “I’ve been hurt, abandoned, lied on, and disrespected. I’ve realized you can’t change people. And the thing about rough times is, I’ve survived every single one.” Draya went on to post another photo, this one captioned, “Today is a celebration for me …. I’ve made 6 months…. And I’m OK rejoicing alone. I have a son and another on the way, soon to be surrounded by two kings. Protectors.”
The same source then updated with another Instagram comment made by Draya. Of her breakup with Orlando Scandrick, Draya said, “[He] wants to go to Vegas and act like [a] wh**e for the weekend and act like a d**k the week before to force you to break up with them … I left. Gave back the ring and left … he just deleted photos.”
Orlando Scandrick has made an Instagram statement of his own post-breakup. The NFL star already went through his own social media account and deleted every photo of Draya. It looks like this latest breakup might be the last one. If the rumors are true, while Draya has been working hard to grow her Mint Swim clothing company, Scandrick may have been running around behind her back. There is talk that a Dallas stripper is also pregnant and she is claiming Scandrick to be the father of her child too.
Some fans think Draya and Orlando aren’t really over and that a reconciliation is probable. Given the history of Orlando and Draya’s rollercoaster relationship, that is a pretty good possibility. This most recent breakup is the fourth time Draya and Orlando have split publicly in the past two years. The first time we heard about Draya and Orlando calling it quits was in August, 2014, but they got back together soon after.
Orlando and Draya broke up again in May, 2015, but reconciled almost immediately. Then in July, 2015, their relationship issues really came to a head. Orlando reportedly kicked Draya out of his house and filed for a restraining order against her. Orlando claimed that Draya sprayed him with pepper spray and even threatened to attack him with bleach. Orlando was granted the restraining order, which was later thrown out when he failed to appear in court to make the order permanent.
It didn’t take long for Draya Michele and Orlando Scandrick to reconcile after the restraining order incident because Draya learned she was pregnant soon after. The Basketball Wives LA star finally admitted she was pregnant in January, after rumors that she was expecting started to swirl and Draya couldn’t deny her current status because she is very visibly showing.
Apparently Draya and Orlando have been split since the New Year after Draya called off their engagement. While some are reporting that Draya and Orlando just grew apart as she spent most of her time working in Los Angeles and he lives in Dallas, something far worse than distance had to have caused this level of anger in their break up.
Fashion & Style reports that Draya Michele is open to co-parenting once their son arrives and hopes to keep things cordial. Whether that is possible is still yet to be seen, Orlando seems pretty bitter about the breakup. Then again, Orlando was also pretty bitter about being pepper-sprayed and then not only took Draya back but asked her to marry him again just a month later.
