You are currently viewing ‘Basketball Wives’ star pleads for Savage X Fenty deal after controversial remark

Draya Michele has a wish for the New Year. The former Basketball Wives star previously worked as an ambassador for Rihanna’s famed Savage X Fenty lingerie line. Part of her job was to promote the line on her social media through branded photoshoots. Michele is not the only celebrity to have the job. Former Fith Harmony member Normani is also an Ambassador, as is rapper Megan Thee Stallion. Michele and Megan even started a joint venture together. But amid Michele’s controversial comments about Megan and Tory Lanez’s shooting fiasco, she was sacked from her role with the line.

“I would like my @savagexfenty contract to come back in 2022. Just wishful thinking,” she captioned a photo of herself in orange lingerie in her Instagram story. Michele was cut from her post as Savage X Fenty ambassador after joking that Lanez shot Megan. At the time, it was rumored that Lanez and Megan were in an intimate relationship.

“I predicted they had some kind of love from Bobby and Whitney that pushed them down this type of road and I’m here for that – I like it. I want you to love me so much that you shoot me in the foot too. Michele said in an interview, referring to the audience and the perceived volatile relationship between Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown.

The comments caused a major backlash. Especially since Rihanna is a survivor of domestic violence. Her bruised face was plastered in the media in 2009 after she was assaulted by her then-boyfriend Chris Brown. Rihanna now supports several charities for women and victims of domestic violence.

Michele apologized for her comments, but it wasn’t enough to save her job with the lingerie line. After his public call to reclaim his ambassadorial post, Michele took a moment to comment on The Shade Room’s report on the story amid more backlash.

“I played myself, I made triggering comments, I was reprimanded and I apologized,” she wrote in part on December 27. “All in front of you all. It is growth. Bounce. “
