Draya Michele is back to posting those thirsty bikini snaps. The 35-year-old reality star and Mint Swim founder has been making headlines for layering on the swimwear posts ‒ likewise, for getting flack as she flaunts her sizzling body on social media.
The “Basketball Wives LA” alum was told that she’ll do “anything” to “show off” her body recently as she posed in a revealing post-yoga bedroom photo, although the clap-back was quick, with Draya seemingly undeterred when it comes to showcasing her fierce curves. The latest post raised eyebrows, but for different reasons.
Kicking off the weekend with a little throwback action as she social distances in her L.A. home, Draya took to Instagram on Friday night with an ocean-submerged bikini snap that ticked boxes for idyllic horizons and the swimwear designer’s sensational body.
Draya’s photo showed her lying in ocean waters while rocking a black, pin-up-style bikini with a ’50s finish – the ex to Orlando Scandrick also sported her signature hoop earrings, plus soaking-wet hair as she soaked up rays on her glistening-wet skin.
“Come get me, it’s ghetto here,” she captioned the shot.
Draya’s post brought in plenty of likes – over 134,000 were clocked in 18 hours, with her sizzling snap also garnering the attention of some famous faces. Rapper Megan Thee Stallion left a like, as did 23-year-old model and girlfriend to rapper Future, Lori Harvey, plus NFL wife Nicole Williams.
The majority of comments left Draya the thumbs-up, but one reply gaining likes dragged the star out.
“You ain’t about to listen to nobody in these comments unless they famous or got a blue check.”
The comment sparked a mini wave of replies, with some users wasting no time in backing Draya up.
“She actually does talk to her fans, you probably should’ve just set this one out. I’m not sure if you wanted attention but you definitely got it now lol,” one fan wrote.
The initial user then found their point somewhat challenged as Draya herself replied.
“What’s your suggestion,” she wrote.
The post also brought in a comment from supermodel Shanina Shaik – it appeared the 29-year-old had been on the trip with Draya.
Draya’s 2011-founded Mint Swim brand has been receiving plenty of promo on her Instagram of late. It’s also a brand that was valued at $1 million back in 2017, with Draya having founded the label with $12,000 that she saved up.
2019 saw Mint Swim get a major boost, though, as 22-year-old billionaire Kylie Jenner featured it during her “Kylie Skin Summer Trip” vacation in Turks & Caicos. As to how well the brand is doing, Draya recently made headlines for sharing a massive billboard for the company – she now “officially owns the corner.”
Draya has 8 million Instagram followers.
