Draya Michele is relying on the power of positive thinking to get back into the good graces of Rihanna‘s Savage X Fenty brand.
The reality TV star was a celebrity brand ambassador for Rihanna’s intimate apparel line, but was quickly released from her contract in late 2020 after making an off-color joke about Tory Lanez’s alleged shooting of Megan Thee Stallion during an interview.
“I predict that they had some sort of Bobby and Whitney love that, you know, drove them down this snapped-esque type of road,” she told the hosts of the “Wine and Weed” podcast. “And I’m here for it. I like that. I want you to like me so much that you shoot me in the foot too.”
Megan Thee Stallion seemingly responded to Draya’s comment tweeting, “Dumb b-tch that s–t ain’t f–king funny. Who tf jokes about getting shot by a n—a.” As a survivor of domestic violence, Rihanna wasted no time severing her ties with Draya after word of the interview spread.
One year later, it appears as if the Mint Swim creator is doing some reflecting as she prepares to head into the new year and shared hopes that her relationship with the brand can be mended in 2022.
“I would like my Savage X Fenty deal back in 2022. Just wishful thinking,” she shared in an Instagram Story along with one of her prior Savage spreads.
The “Doses of Draya” star also admitted that she played herself and elaborated about learning from her mistakes in a comment she left on The Shade Room. “The thing about it is I’m human and I make mistakes but the only difference between me and everyone else is my mistakes were made in front of the world as well as my consequences,” she wrote.
