Draya Michele bravely got on the scales and broadcasted her weight to the whole of Instagram today. The 35-year-old reality star and Mint Swim founder – who recently went on a “military diet” – has had a lot to chew over this past week.
If you aren’t up-to-date, Draya making a joke about rapper Megan Thee Stallion getting shot got the “Basketball Wives LA” alum near-canceled on Twitter over the weekend. Draya even had “Savage” rapper Meg personally responding. In short, it got messy.
Draya updated her stories on Monday. The star’s 8.1 million followers saw her promoting the Vanity Planet Body Analyzer scale – she offered fans 60% off with a special discount code.
Draya admitted that she can gain six or seven pounds during “that time of the month” – and she was brave enough to reveal that Aunt Flow might be in town right now. The Fashion Nova partner then got on the scale, which showed everything from her weight to her body fat percentage, water percentage, and even bone profile.
The scale doesn’t lie and Draya wasn’t out to make it be anything but the truth. The mom of two who trains with “Modern Family” actress Ariel Winter’s personal trainer MackFit weighs a healthy 128 pounds at 5’5″.
Draya is a muscle machine. Just under one third of the star is muscle, but over 55% was water – Draya confessed that her cycle ramps up the water weight. Being 6% bone sounded “about right” to Draya. The snazzy scale also factors in age and gender. Scroll for the Megan Thee Stallion storm.
Draya landed herself in hot water on July 22 after commenting on fellow SavagexFenty ambassador Megan Thee Stallion’s alleged shooting incident – the rapper claims she was shot twice in the feet, with rapper Tory Lanez reported to have possibly “accidentally” shot Hot Girl Meg.
Draya said: “I predict that they had some sort of Bobby & Whitney love that drove them down this type of road,” adding: “I’m here for it. I like that. I want you to like me so much you shoot me in the foot too.”
It did not go down well with “Savage” rapper Meg. Scroll for her response.
Shortly after news broke of Draya’s comment, Stallion herself took to Twitter.
“Dumb b-tch that sh-t ain’t f-cking funny who tf jokes about getting shot by a n—-,” she wrote. Draya quickly found her name trending on the social media platform, with fans calling out the swimwear designer’s “stupidity.” Draya then issued a full apology:
“I truly don’t glorify domestic violence… I was trying to say just love me deeply,” she said: “But while trying to be funny, I offended many, including meg. And I’m sorry.”
