Draya Michele is getting told: “Mic drop” after a fan queried what the 35-year-old has to her name. Draya, who recently fronted media outlets for a shooting joke about rapper Megan Thee Stallion – with SavagexFenty seemingly dropping her as a result – was back on form with her Friday Instagram update.
Draya’s post today kicked off with a simple agenda. It showed the “Basketball Wives LA” alum on vacation and out on the water. It wasn’t long before a fan comment turned into a storm.
Scroll for the photo shared with Draya’s 8.1 million followers. It showed the Mint Swim founder shot on a balcony and backed by ocean waters, with Draya flaunting her ripped abs and cleavage in a sky blue and knotted fabric bralette matching wide and loose pants.
Draya, also rocking retro glasses, wrote: “I’m the happiest and most creative by the water.”
Over 123,000 likes were left in two hours, but so was a question seemingly challenging the Fashion Nova partner’s career.
The fan wrote: “Wat do u create.”
Draya, who just dropped her Oh PollyxDRAYA collab, has had one with Revolve, and watched the $12,000 she saved up to found Mint Swim blossom into a $1 million company valuation in 2017, did not let the comment slide. She fired back, writing:
“To date? Like over 300 unique pieces of clothing, including swimwear, athletic wear, leisure, merchandise, jewelry…and more.”
The reply racked up over 700 likes, with fans backing the star – “PERIOD SIS,” one wrote, with another writing: “Got em!” There’s one thing that Draya has not addressed, though.
Draya has stayed silent over rumors that Rihanna’s SavagexFenty lingerie line has dropped her amid the Megan Thee Stallion storm. The brand unfollowed Draya on Instagram and deleted promotional photos of her – all this came after Draya spoke on the “Wine and Weed” podcast regarding “Savage” rapper Megan. The Texan claims she was shot in both feet, with fans suspecting rapper Tory Lanez to have been behind it.
Draya said: “I predict that they had some sort of Bobby & Whitney love that drove them down this type of road,” then adding she was “here for it: “I like that. I want you to like me so much you shoot me in the foot too.” More below.
Draya recently celebrated a decade of Mint Swim. The popular swimwear line already boasted singer Selena Gomez as one of its customers back in 2017 – 2019, meanwhile, brought the brand its biggest promo yet as makeup mogul Kylie Jenner selected it during her Turks & Caicos travels.
As The Blast reported, backlash on Draya’s Instagram was intense following the Megan Thee Stallion storm. Fans told the star: “We ain’t forget sis.” They seemed to have her back today, though. Also showing up for support was fellow SavagexFenty ambassador, 38-year-old Christina Milian.
