We, the MadameNoire editorial squad, were just talking about Draya Michele, Orlando Scandrick and their on-again, off-again relationship. And while some of us believe that the couple will ultimately end up together, they certainly have a lot of issues to work out before they settle down, particularly if it’s going to be with each other.
In the most recent example of their hot and cold behavior, Orlando reached out to TMZ to apologize for his previous statements about his former fiancé. You may remember he said, “In hindsight, it was a poor decision to propose.”
After some reflection he reached out to TMZ again, “I want to apologize for my original statement. I let my emotions fly impulsively. Draya is a great mother, works hard and I wish her nothing but the best. I still love her.”
He also wanted to address rumors that she bought the ring for herself and that their engagement fizzled due to infidelity.
“I purchased the ring. I proposed. There was no cheating involved, we just couldn’t make it work.”
Well, that sounded mature. It’s certainly an appropriate thing to say about the woman with whom you’ve spent years of your life.
But it didn’t last long.
Draya posted this [very true] quote on Instagram and apparently it got under Orlando’s skin. So much so that he posted a not-so-nice response.
He’s since deleted it but not before BallerAlert had a chance to catch it.
Well, that’s unfortunate.
What do you think about Draya and Orlando? Do you think they’ll find way to figure it out or is it best that they be done with one another.
