The Draya bad mother accusations have been brought up several times as the reality TV star’s parenting skills have remained in question. Draya Michele is one of the biggest stars of the “Basketball Wives LA” cast and has gained a lot of exposure from being on the reality show. Although Draya has been deemed as one of the stars of the show, the reality star’s parenting skills have been brutally criticized as Draya has been accused of of being a bad mother to her son. Draya took a moment to speak on the rumors of her being an unfit parent during her appearance on 106 & Park. And to slightly silence her critics, Draya revealed that she reunited with her son not too long ago as he moved in with her in L.A. Draya’s bond with her son is growing stronger and her love life is looking pretty great as well as Draya confirmed she’s dating Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick by showing up as his date for the 2013 ESPY Awards. To prove that their relationship is the real deal despite skeptics’ opinions of the union, Draya revealed via Instagram how great things are still going between she and Orlando.
During an interview she recently did with Vibe Vixen, Draya talked about her current relationship with Orlando and reveals how they met each other. She also says things are still going great between them and she couldn’t be happier:
“We actually met through a mutual friend and we’ve been dating for about five months now, but we just decided to make it public.
“Things are going great, I can’t complain, I’m probably the happiest I’ve ever been in my life.”
Draya also speaks on how she feels about living her life in the public eye. And the reality star says she tries to keep her family out of the limelight because she is very protective over them and is terrified at how obsessed people are with her son:
“I just want people to know that Instagram is just a small fraction of my life. It’s pictures that I select to go up there and you know there are some things in my life that I like to keep private. There are people that inquire so much about my family and as a mother that is a very scary thing so I have to protect my family and keep them a little out of the limelight just because they’re so in demand. When people say “well where’s your son? Where’s your son? Where’s son?” it has the opposite effect on me, instead of making me actually want to post my son, it puts a slight fear in me like why are you guys so obsessed with my son? That would scare any parent for strangers to be so concerned for their child. I just need people to know that I keep it private.”
