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.

  • “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.”

    It states right there that he was taken from her… did yall skip that part?

    • Having been (and still is) on the caretaker side of this type of situation, Children and Youth services (it’s called Child Protective Services where I’m from) does NOT have custody of this child. Since the little boy was able to give the police a number for his grandmother, that’s where he went. Once they got Draya, she had to sign a Voluntary Short term Placement form which states that the grandmother is responsible for the boys welfare. This is only temporary and until she goes through whatever classes the Department requires her to go through.
      There’s a LONG process before a child is actually “taken” from their parent. I’ve been through it and is actually going through it again now.

      • How is it the grandmother’s fault? We don’t know why she stopped babysitting. How do you she didn’t try to help Draya and Draya didn’t abuse that help or take advantage of her.

        As for whether or not her child was “taken” from her, he was. CPS removed the child from the home and opened a case on her. The little boy was lucky enough to have a grandmother who loved him enoug to show up and take responsibility for him. Otherwise, he would have been placed in foster care while they investigated. Either way it goes, the boy was not allowed to remain in the home with her and was removed from the filthy house and placed in the care of a responsible adult. In my book, that constitutes having him “taken” from her.

        • Dumb fuck

    • But it also said grandmom took him home!!! Did they know where he was??? And if it were as bad as it’s made out to be y isn’t anyone mad at the officer who thought it was a good idea to not arrest her immediately???? They let her decide when she was arrested but everyone is worried about her decision when it should be the authorities decisions should be questioned!!!

  • Wow Robert,

    I feel sorry for her child. Hopefully, she learned from her mistake and can move forward. I hope the child can also move forward…. Maybe some counseling or something might help the kid.

  • How was this report obtained? Was it from a newspaper article? What was the name of the paper and the date it was published? or What city or municipality did it come from? Do you have a direct link? I was just curious because I had wanted to see the official document, or official publication. Thanks

    • It just seems weird, she was making money doing what she does, she probably could have paid for a sitter. I don’t know, just seems like something is missing…

      • She didn’t come home unti 8:45am the next morning after she told her son she would be home in a little bit. That’s probably why the grandmother stopped babysitting, she probably stayed gone for days at a time. I just hope she has learned her lesson and is now putting her son’s welfare first. Kids require sacrifice. From the little I have seen of her on BBW-LA, she seems to be about one of the realest on the show. She seems like she has a lot of potential, she just needs to make better choices. I want to know what dirt she has on Imani, LOL! There is definitely something more to why imani hating on her so much.

        • you should google imani i think you’ll be shocked at what u find but everyone is on draya…. at least she didn’t give her son away and lie several times oh and who is the real golddigger? look her up DRAYA lied cuz she didn’t want people in her business she never denied or agree to the statments she just said her son was took and there were alot of stories about what happen.

    • Its reading pa the newspaper is called the reading eagle if u type in andraya howard in a Google search the article will come up

    • I was wondering the same thing…Is their an actual document or reprt? So I did a little research myself! Unfortunately ANYONE can log onto this site & as long as you have the persons last name 1st 2 letters of their first name& county (in her case Berks) you can review crimial hearings & dockets …..Again unfortunately, she was definitely charged with child endangerment & still on probation!!!!!!!!!!

      • Yes she plead GUILTY so lets not act like she is not up on tv lying trying to make herself sound better and look innocent. Step 1 is taking some damn responsibilty. I feel sorry for her son. You can also google UJS (PA unified justice system and search by her name to check out her criminal charges if you want proof, you can also see how she was so conerned about those charges she has another criminal case pending for DUI now. Great parent!

        • Thank YOU! Someone has sense. I am a beautiful woman….big deal! You can be classy not trashy and showin’ all the assy! That scoochie(a cross between a stank and a hoochie) endangered a child! You should be crucified! Leaving a child in filth and hungry! Are you people serious? It is scary knowing you defend her, I feel sorry for your children. He should have called his grandmother? NO! She should have made sure he had care or stayed her stinking ass home! She lied about it, the proof is in the police report. She would not be crying if it wasn’t true! Beauty fades, dumb is forever! That poor boy has to go to school, kids are mean already, just imagine what he is going through when they pull those pictures of her. If that was my mother, I would be under my bed. As far as the father…she pick him! Blame yourself for your “baby daddy”! You picked him!

  • yes this is dead wrong if its true i dont think it was something that she did all the time because the average ‘latch key kid” would be used to it and never called the police this kid acted like a kid thats use to his mom doing what she said she is going to do and sincerly became scared when she didnt show.give the girl a break every young mother makes mistakes.but who the heck made imani the moral police you know this “perfect itch’ has some skeletons in her closet that will never be revealed these women act like they are better because they were willing to run behind,put up with bull ish,from these dudes for years some even lockn in child support by having kids and they still sre not with them now so if going with a guy and it eventually doesnt workout makes you a jump off…..theyare all jumpoffs except jackie and that itch is just str8 insecure and crazy anybody that has to go through that much to keep and man faithfulnis sad thats not love thats obession and he is a real punk for allowing it what she fells to realize he is yesterYEARS news aint nobody checkn for his old a$$

    • Sorry Saba, but I was a latch key child, and no you dont get used to that….My sibblings and I had to endure the harsh realities of our mother’s drug addiction, where we would find ourselves home alone on various occasions in the waking hours of the night & on daily occassions as well…we’ve struggled with that through out our childhood, some times I’d wished that I was adopted by some one because of having to grow up the way that I did…I was depressed, I went through harsh verbal, emotional and mental abuse by my mother,so No a child shouldn’t have to get use to being neglected by their parent(s)…

    • How did Laura feel when people was accusing her of she f—ing Shawnie’s man. Did she
      fuck him? Let’s judge that and talk about that s–t on the show and maybe Draya can choose whether she wanta to be around that type of chick!!!

  • Wow – there is never an excuse for a 7 year old to be left alone to fend for themselves. I’m sick of hearing excuses for people who put their children in danger (it’s their upbringing, it’s the father of the childs fault, it’s her mothers fault, she needs parenting classes, she was so young, blah blah blah). Take the kid away from her period! Why do people today accept bad behavior so easily? This isn’t a “mistake”!!! This is blatant irresponsible parenting & should NEVER be tolerated by society.

    • I agree. I hope someone rescued the dog too. Poor thing wasn’t being fed or taken outside. That’s cruelty to animals.
