Draya Michele Gives Birth to Son With Orlando Scandrick

orlando-draya-kids

After an insanely rocky and tumultuous pregnancy that resulted in angry-face emojis, unfollows, DM meltdowns and lots of appearances on the Shade Room, former “Basketball Wives L.A.” star Draya Michele and her on-again-off-again-on-again-off-again baby daddy, NFL player Orlando Scandrick, welcomed their son Jru (pronounced “Drew”) into the world last Friday (Apr 8).

Here are the deets via People:

Michele delivered her baby boy, whose name is pronounced “Drew,” naturally. He weighed 6.5 lbs., and measured 20 inches long.

Already mom to 13-year-old son Kniko, this is Michele’s first child with Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick, who is also dad to twin daughters Taylor and Tatiana.

“We are super excited to add our sixth member to the family,” Michele tells PEOPLE. “He’s such a good, healthy baby and everyone is already infatuated with him. His brother and sisters are in love.”

My babies can't wait to meet their brother. ??

I need to understand how and why they named this sweet, innocent baby boy “DREW” but decided to spell it “Jru.”

Are Draya and Orlando illiterate? Do they hate vowels in the right places? Do they intentionally want to increase this child’s burden, even though he will already be burdened beyond reason with their unstable, deranged, unhinged relationship to contend with?

Moving on from that dreadful name, apparently Beyoncé’s twerkin’, poppin’ hit song “Check On It” may have been partially responsible for Draya’s water breaking.

The former video vixen posted a short clip on Instagram of herself jiggling to Bey’s jam during yet ANOTHER maternity photo shoot.

Five hours later, she was giving birth to baby Jru. This coincidence inspired Draya to name Beyoncé the child’s “fairy godmother.”

There’s no such thing as too much @beyonce in one day, unless you’re pushing 9 months pregnant. I Def went into labor exactly 5 hours after this…….so with that being said, @beyonce you are Jru’s fairy godmother. Thanks

No word yet from Beyonce on if she accepts this highly esteemed title from Draya. My guess is she has better shit to do than cluck cluck with riff raff and street trash like Draya ‘n’ ’em.

But you never know when Bey’s feeling charitable and kind so she might send Draya a set of booties and a rattle or something.

“Mary Mary” Season 5 Episode 7 aired on WeTV Thursday night (Apr 14).

Stress sends Warryn to the hospital, Erica is a nervous wreck, and Tina and Teddy perform their final show on tour.

Watch “Mary Mary” Season 5 Episode 7 (VIDEO) Here:

About the show:

Last season left viewers in limbo with Erica and Tina Campbell focusing on their individual careers, forcing Mary Mary into an indefinite hiatus. The sisters, now in direct competition with each other, are also feeling pressure to keep Mary Mary in the game, even if that means replacing a Mary!

This season, Erica Campbell is at the top of her game having won a Grammy, Dove and Soul Train Award. Meanwhile, Tina’s solo career is on the rise. These now-solo sisters have become accustomed to being at the top as part of the dynamic duo that is Mary Mary. However, for the first time ever, they are competing for the same spot on the charts.

Can Mary Mary survive the pressures of Erica and Tina’s individual ventures and personal lives, or will their success be the demise of Mary Mary?

Kevin Gates Claims Self Defense After Kicking Female Fan in the Chest

kevingates

Kevin Gates is using Florida’s controversial “Stand Your Ground” law in his current legal case involving a fan he attacked during a concert last year.

Back in September, Gates was charged with simple battery after he was caught on camera aggressively kicking an 18-year-old woman who grabbed his shorts in the middle of a performance.

But the “2 Phones” rapper is claiming in new court documents that he did absolutely nothing wrong and acted only in self-defense.

TMZ reports:

Gates says Miranda Dixon tried to grab him twice during the show last August in Lakeland, FL — and since he gave her a verbal warning after her first failed attempt … he had every right to fight back.

In the docs, he says Dixon managed to grab his shorts the second time, and he thought she was trying to pull him offstage … so he used necessary force to defend himself and prevent further harm.

He wants the judge to throw out the case.

Gates’ legal team hopes the infamous “Stand Your Ground” law (the same law that helped George Zimmerman get off in the shooting and killing of Florida teen Trayvon Martin) will work in his favor.
