Today is clear up the rumors Friday and our subject is second-time mom-to-be  Draya Michele who VH1‘s Basketball Wives  who is finally sharing who her son’s dad is.

We and many other media outlets have incorrectly stated that her son’s father is NBA veteran Gilbert Arenas, but it is not.

Draya took to Instagram this week to clarify the falsehood:

Here is Draya ….. At 17 years old I got pregnant by a man who became incarcerated for 10 when I was 7 months pregnant. With help from my mom, I was able to survive. Now, judging by how under-developed and young I was, besides living in a very small city in PA….. There’s no way in 2002 I got pregnant by some athlete. If I had, there’s not a chance in fucking hell I would have wasted 7 years of my life working “in the club” because clearly child support would be on fleek. I have never received A DIME of child support in my life and that’s ok. I have also NEVER attempted to say anyone other than who my son is named after (yes he’s a junior) was the father. My son’s father lives in pa and makes an honest living being a barber. This shit is completely embarrassing to me and my family. And I intend on putting this to final rest. I’m pissed that I had to take time from remodeling my office in my brand new 4000 square foot warehouse to even address this. But I’ve been quiet too long. I’ve also let people tell “my story” on tv too many times. I’ll speak my truths….. You speak your own and keep whatever momentum going by doing that. God bless. Leave the kids out of it for heaven’s sake. #seemybabyseat #boxdye #walmart

Draya Michele (real name Andraya  Michele Howard) is the longest sitting cast member from reality TV show and today owns a clothing and swim suit label.

“At 17 years old I got pregnant by a man who became incarcerated for 10 when I was 7 months pregnant. With help from my mom, I was able to survive,” she captioned a photo of herself at 17-years old with her son in a car seat nearby. “Judging by how under-developed and young I was, besides living in a very small city in PA….. There’s no way in 2002 I got pregnant by some athlete. If I had, there’s not a chance in f——h— I would have wasted 7 years of my life working ‘in the club’ because clearly child support would be on fleek.”

She also made everyone aware that her son’s father does not support her at all.

“I have never received A DIME of child support in my life and that’s ok,” she explained. “I have also NEVER attempted to say anyone other than who my son is named after (yes he’s a junior) was the father. My son’s father lives in pa and makes an honest living being a barber. This s— is completely embarrassing to me and my family.”

Arenas himself spoke to the rumors last year when he told his Instagram followers, “Draya’s son was at least four years old when I met her and we were [cool] friends.”

Draya Michele is expecting her second child, a son, with NFL star Orlando Scandrick.
