Video: BBWives Draya Michele Says Son Never Taken From Her..Police Say Otherwise


Listen no one is perfect.  We all make mistakes.  We have all had trials and tribulations.  We have all done things that we regret.  The one thing you don’t want to do is compound your mistakes by lying about them.

I have nothing against Draya.  I don’t care if she was a stripper or dated a bunch of athletes and entertainers.  That is her business and her life.  If that is what makes her happy more power to her.

But when you lie on your child, don’t be surprised if someone calls you out.  It wasn’t gossip blogs or people trying to slander you that caused you to get arrested.  It was your poor decisions.  Here is what the POLICE had to say about why Draya was arrested, you might be shocked by what you read.

A 7-year-old Wyomissing boy was coming home from school to an empty apartment and spending nights alone while his mother worked in Philadelphia, borough police said Friday.

The boy told police that he would get off the bus most days and wait for someone to leave or enter the gated parking garage under the apartment complex in the 100 block of North Park Road so he could get into the building, police said.

His mother, Andraya M. Howard, 25, would leave the apartment door unlocked and microwave dinners in the freezer for him, they said.

Police arrested Howard at the apartment Thursday night on a charge of endangering the welfare of a child.

She remained free on $25,000 bail after arraignment before District Judge Ann L. Young in Reading Central Court.

According to court records:

A policeman found the boy alone in a disheveled apartment Dec. 16 about 2 a.m. after the boy called 9-1-1 and told dispatchers he was home alone.

He told Patrolman Kevin M. Quinter that he called his mother’s cell phone about 20 times to find out where she was. He last spoke to her when he called her after getting off the bus. She said she was at a tanning salon and would be home soon.

The apartment looked like it had been ransacked, with women’s undergarments scattered throughout the living room. A small dog was in a cage, and dog feces and dog urine were in several places in the apartment.

While Quinter talked to the boy, the youth got a TV dinner from the freezer, stood on the counter and put it into the microwave.

Police called the boy’s grandmother, who took him home.

She said she had been watching her grandson while Howard went to her job overnight in Philadelphia, but she had not been baby-sitting the boy for a few months.

Howard, who said she worked as a model, returned home about 8:45 a.m. and police told her that her son was in the care of the county Children and Youth Services while they investigated.

Police did not know the status of the child Friday.

They charged Howard on Dec. 30, but did not immediately arrest her because she agreed to surrender to sheriff’s deputies.

When she didn’t, police went to the apartment and arrested her.

You want people to give you the benefit of the doubt Draya, then you are going to need to be a woman and own up to your mistakes. Because this report here, didn’t come from any gossip blogs, TMZ or BSO it came from a police report that INTERVIEWED YOUR SON & MOTHER.

If even 15% of what your son said was true, that is awful on so many levels, you should consider yourself lucky people tend to forgive pretty faces.

You have an opportunity with your Basketball Wives platform to show people you aren’t what we think you are.

So far you are failing miserably, do better.

For those who think this is a made up report here is your proof.

Draya also had a naked pic that was released today.

  • I shook my head the entire time I read this. No 7 year-old child should have to be put through that. She ought to be ashamed.

    • She was a young mother and don’t act like SH*t isn’t Brown. It’s hard being a single Mother at that. I’m not saying its right but, This girl has no reason to prove herself to anyone.. She’s grown and at the end of the day she has two mouths to feed..And no one will hand out Cash for free… It’s the past and she has her child now. Let DRAYA BE… SHe’s TRYING TO Make it and no Doubt she will… People mouths are her STEPPING STONE it will only get her where she wants to go in life.

      • Thankk uu` TAETAE , uu` aree absolutely rightt ! she is not right for this & she paid her prise for it ! but GOSH , this is ridiculous ! Please let this grown woman live her life without people like yall ruining it *

        • Being a young mom is no excuse. This just happened this year, 2011, she should be humiliated and feel ashamed of herself. What an awful parent and for moms who think thats even okay, feel ashamed of yourselves as well. If she gave a shit she should have taken on a job that would not require her to be a whore out with dudes at night and ditching her kid

          • Most rap sheets are accompanied by mugshots, or something.

    • I don’t understand why does draya have to explain herself to any of those women because they don’t pay her bills, they don’t care of her son, and I don’t why these ladies are wanting draya to explain herself. Nobody on this show has a right to judge her because they all have dirt on them. SO, with that being said if draya goes off on these women, I just hope they know that she had every right. These women are pointing the finger at because they don’t want any dirt put out on them.

      • I agree. She shouldn’t have to explain to them. They say they love their children. At least in The Real Housewives of Atlanta we actually got to see the kids. So, all we got is these women’s word that they love their kids. How come there is no mugshot? We always see mugshots when stars get arrested. None of Draya as surfaced so far. And, I want to go back to interview a minor (7 years old is a minor) with no legal guardian or parent present. They do that now. And, then they go tell what this child said to a report. WTH.

      • It’ just like Snow white when the witch goes to the mirror and thinks that the mirror is going to still say that she is the fairest of them all. When these women on baskeball wives with Gloria look in the mirro they ask “Who is the hottest most sexiest basketball wife cast member and the mirror hollers “There is only one, Draya” but instead of them all getting together to give Draya a poison apple they all look her up on the internet, try to beat her up in a cage, and have an intervention with her like she is a drug addict. Same story, bitter older hags hate the young new beauty.

      • I agree! Further More I thought the last bb wives was trash ass……and the season is worse these ladies have no class!!!! They all come off as trash! Leave that girl alone (Draya) because each of them are equal in my eyes! TRASH! DOUG C is way to fine to be with that clown btw!!! Yep dislike all these ladies so much I will not watch this show anymore. If I wanted to see this bs I would go down to the welfare office!!

        • They are giving black women a bad name.

        • LMFAO!!!! I so totally agree with you!!

    • I have learned that its not what you know, its what you can prove, what happened to the references to support this accusation?

    • Why are these BBW Knockoffs to judge anyone. Draya only need to fess up to God and apologize to her son. These get rich NMFF (Non Muther FFFFFng Factors) are not even LA. Where did they dig these trees up from. They got lucky and Draya is working to survive. I don’t agree to what she did, maybe she should have allowed her mother to help. But people try to take people kids for money. Unfortunately the system has him. But do what you have to do and get him back. Squirt on them BBW Knockoff and do your business. Get some mental help too.

      • I’m not saying you are crazy but it is always good to clear your head of superficial trash and dump it.

    • Well, the document seems very simple. Most of the time legal documents use terms and jargon that one must look up definitions. It very well could be a forgery. Why did only one officer respond to the 911 call? And they said that he called the boy’s grandmother and she came and took him home, but the next sentence said they told his mom that he was in the custody of the court or something like that, so which is it. Why did he allow the boy to fix a tv dinner instead of ordering him a burger or having his back up bring in some good hot food (meal).

    • Sorry folks! Draya said this was not true and it IS not true.This is a FAKE police report!You can google all you want but you will not find a criminal report on her as stated by this FAKE report.NOOOoow…who’da done sumpm’ like that? Another BBW on another coast? Tellem’ why you MAD Shaun tellem’ why you MAD!! “Cause they usin’ my music,my logo and they hooda’ than US!!!” But why you picked Draya? Cause you knew she wouldn’t figure it out and SUE YOU!!

      • OOPS!!! My bad. Found the actual newspaper! Couldn’t google cause paper lists her as Andraya M Howard.

  • duh, it clearly states his Grandmother took him home, so therefore, he was not taken away from her ……

    • EXACTLY!!!but i still think she dead wrong!!!

      • If he could have been taken home by grandma why didnt he call her. If the report is to believe this isnt the first time this happened. So the child should have known the drill. If mommie is not reached called grandma. So, call the cops now? This whole thing sounds fishy if you really take time to examine it.

  • Technically, her son was never in state custody because he was turned over to her mother. So, it depends on how you look at it. Not agreeing with what she did, I’m just saying, technically she didn’t lie.

    • EXACTLYYY!!!!

  • from the police report – Police called the boy’s grandmother, who took him home. The Grandmother had the son the whole time, when she went to the police station obviously whomever was on duty sent her to Children and Youth as they would have, cause Children & Youth would have needed to speak to her,Children & Youth told Draya her Son was with her Mother ……

  • People are free to talk about this all they want, but they have to realize, there is a lil boy involved here who must go to school everyday and maybe just maybe just started to live all this down and here comes people bringing it up again…It is not affecting Draya as much as her Son…..THINK PEOPLE THINK BEFORE YOU REPORT

    • Trust me her son is not reading this

      • its all over tv..

      • in this day in age u never know. and just because he’s not reading it TODAY doesn’t make it okay…. duh it’s the web people this will not only follow her for the rest of her life but her son as well…although i don’t like her actions i’m with draya leave it alone why would you want him to keep reliving this?
