LA Club Claims Draya Michele Ditched Paid Gig Because Of Too Many F*gs and D*kes

Basketball Wives LA star Draya Michele is defending herself after being accused of using homophobic slurs.

The reality star was supposed to appear at a Los Angeles club on Sunday night, but according to the venue’s hostess, Draya ditched the paid gig because there were too many “f*gs and d*kes.” The hostess at Penthouse Nightclub tells TMZ that Draya actually drove up to the club, looked at the crowd, said she wasn’t going to waste her time with “f*gs and d*kes,” and drove off.

But according to Draya, that never happened. The 29-year-old tells TMZ that she never showed up that night and that she called the club earlier that day to tell them she was sick. Per the reality star, the club owner threatened to slam her in the media for not showing up.

The venue apparently paid Draya a $2.5 k deposit which makes the reality star obligated to appear. But when the Mint-Swim creator left, so did the party goers. The club is saying they lost money and now they plan on suing Draya.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
