Draya Michele Sues Ex-Boyfriend, NFL Player Tyrod Taylor, For Backing Out Of House Deal

Draya Michele is gearing up to battle it out with her ex in court.

The 39-year-old recently filed a lawsuit against NFL quarterback Tyrod Taylor, 34, for allegedly going back on his word. Per court documents obtained by TMZ, In August 2022, Tyrod Taylor allowed his then-girlfriend Draya Michele and her children to move into a home he purchased in the Los Angeles-area. Reportedly, the socialite and professional athlete started dating in 2020 and called things off sometime in 2023. During their relationship, when she first moved into the home, Draya Michele claims in her suit that she and Tyrod Taylor entered a verbal agreement.

Allegedly, the former couple agreed that Draya, if she desired, would one day be allowed to purchase the home from Tyrod. The deal also noted any contributions she made to the property, including improvements or mortgage payments, would go toward the final purchase price, according to the suit.

However, Draya claims that when the time came for her to buy the home, her ex didn’t keep his end of their alleged deal. She says in the suit that after she offered Tyrod $2.8 million for the property he countered at $3.2 million in January 2024, and she accepted. She allegedly already invested nearly $300,000 into the home, believing it’d go toward the purchase price.

Unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned and Draya says Tyrod not only “surprisingly” decided not to sell her the house but he’s now threatening to evict her. She’s suing for breach of contract, among other things, and is seeking unspecified damages.
