Over the weekend, Drake mentioned that he was going to “retire” his stripper ex-girlfriend Maliah Michel. Drake meant this as a compliment in the sense that she wouldn’t have to be a stripper anymore, but Maliah took this the wrong way and called him out in a series of tweets.
It all started with Drake hosting a retirement party for Lira Galore, Miracle Watts and Maliah Michel at his pop-up nightclub The Ballet. The festivities required hanging up the jerseys of the strippers to commemorate their retirement. In addition, each woman received special gifts from Louis Vuitton courtesy of Drake’s new partnership with them.
Miracle Watts was really appreciative of the gesture and took to Instagram to thank the rapper for retiring her from her life as a stripper.
She wrote: “Look, I don’t dance now, I make Money moves Thanks @champagnepapi for helping me gracefully “HANG UP MY JERSEY” OFFICIALLY! 3 years ago, I made a decision to leave the pole in my past, && I never looked back. I’m blessed and thankful to be a part. #MotivateTheStrippers #HoustonMade.”
The second stripper, Galore, was also thankful and wrote on Instagram: “Wow, made strip club history tonight. Got in, got out .. STILL relevant. S/O to the BOY !! @Drake”
Maliah, however, did not share the other women’s sentiments and she said as much on Instagram. She shared photos of herself in her stripper’s get-up and wrote:
“Contrary to “social media news” no man can retire me. I’m shaking this azz into a wheel chair. Maliah will retire Maliah #MaliahMondays”
