Draya Michele new boyfriend is in the NFL? “Basketball Wives LA” star Draya Michele might still get ridiculed for her parenting skills, but when it comes to keeping herself relevant, it’s obvious she doesn’t even need another season of “Basketball Wives LA” to stay on the blogs. In fact, Draya is making headlines once again and this time it’s not because Twitter is roasting her and accusing her of being a terrible mother to her son. The ESPY Awards went down the other night, and while some of the best in sports were honored and looking sharp on the red carpet, many were surprised to see Draya in attendance. But the reality star didn’t come alone and she was actually booed up with Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick. Both made sure they took to their Instagram accounts to hint they are indeed dating and have been enjoying each other’s company on the low for months now. Rucuss reports:

Draya arrived on the red carpet with Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick. The NFL baller was allegedly escorting Draya for a Ciroc promotion, but the pair have been rumored to be dating for months. Draya and Scandrick posted photos of their date on Instagram with captions that suggested that their was romance in the air.

If you’re unfamilar with Scandrick, he was drafted in the fifth round of the NFL draft in 2008. The 26-year old has twin daughters from a previous relationship.


Interestingly enough, it looks as if Draya might have thrown a little shade to her new boo’s baby mama’s way. Check out the Instagram post below:

    The guy who just married Kerry Washington is probably the smartest guy in the league.

    This guy is dumb as hell. Why would you date Draya’s trashy a-s? Is that the best he could do?

    I don’t think Draya is the one you date, I think she is the one you kick out with cab fare. Athletes are so stupid.

    The funny thing is the Baby Mama is probably a better mother than Draya is.

    My question is does Draya know who her baby’s father is?

    Why throw shade at the baby mama though? Her track record as a parent has been terrible so…
