Basketball Wives star Draya Michele may be facing a lawsuit after bailing on a paid club appearance because there were too many gay people at the venue.

Draya was set to appear at a West Hollywood nightclub (above), but allegedly peaced out after deciding there were too many "f**s and d**es" there.

The hostess at Penthouse Nightclub told TMZ that Draya apparently felt it was a waste her time to host a gig for such individuals and bolted immediately.

Draya, meanwhile, denies making the homophobic comment ... or even showing up at the club that night. Michele says she phoned in sick, literally.

She says the club owner threatened to trash her in the media for being a no show, and that's exactly what's happening; Draya says the story is B.S.

Penthouse counters that Michele accepted a $2,500 deposit, was obligated to show and cost them even more money as disappointed club-goers left.

It started as a rumor.

And it nearly ended in a knockout.

Last night, at a restaurant in Spain, Orlando Bloom tried to punch Justin Bieber, presumably due to chatter about Bieber's relationship with Bloom's ex-wife, Miranda Kerr.

Did she simply find him cute? Did the model and the singer actually hook up? Based on Bieber's Instagram response, it certainly seems like the latter.

Bloom's roundhouse may have (unfortunately) missed Bieber's skull, but no matter. These two still deserve a spot in our rundown of the craziest celebrity fights in Hollywood history. Why?

Because ORLANDO BLOOM TRIED TO PUNCH JUSTIN BIEBER. It makes us giddy just to write those words...

Sundy Carter spent her Memorial Day behind bars.

At least part of it.

The Basketball Wives star by the Glendale Police Department late Monday/early Tuesday on suspicion of drunk driving.

Sources confirm that Carter was asked to give a blood or a breath sample after allegedly crossing over a double yellow line around 1 a.m.

She then blew a .18 percent on the breathalyzer, which is around twice the legal limit in California.

According to Los Angeles Sheriff's Department records, Carter posted $10,000 bail Tuesday and was released. She is set to appear in court Thursday morning.

Evelyn Lozada’s split from Chad Johnson was the focal point of the Basketball Wives Season 5 premiere, rehashing the developments of last year.

Ones that are clearly still raw, despite time partially healing the wounds.

Evelyn Lozada wed the NFL star in mid-2012, but they split just six weeks later after a fight that ended with him arrested for domestic violence.

Accused of infidelity after she allegedly found a condom receipt in the car, Chad Johnson head-butted her during the ensuing, heated argument.

Monday's Basketball Wives premiere showed Lozada deciding to go public with her story and meeting with her publicist to schedule a series of interviews.

There was a dramatic dinner with her castmates to discuss her relationship and a heart-to-heart between Lozada and her daughter Shaniece.

It was Shaniece who advised her mom not to reconcile with Johnson.

Basketball Wives star Nia Crooks copped a plea deal for her infamous battery case, and won't spend any time in jail for wailing on Jennifer Williams.

The sort-of-aptly-named Crooks was charged with misdemeanor battery by the Broward County State Attorney's Office after she pimp slapped her co-star.

VH1's cameras caught the incident on film, as you may recall:

Because Jennifer Williams pressed charges and the hit looked pretty real, Nia faced a year in jail, but cut a deal with prosecutors and pleaded no contest.

In exchange she will serve a year of probation, pay a $645 fine, write a letter of apology, stay away from Jennifer and undergo 13 weeks of anger management.

No, not watching Anger Management, though that would be punishment enough.

Evelyn Lozada has two words for NBA veteran Kenyon Martin following his criticism of her reality show Basketball Wives. Those two words, if you hadn't guessed:

  1. F--k
  2. Him

K-Mart blasted the VH1 hit recently, saying the show was "toxic" and a "total misrepresentation" of the lives of married NBA players. That didn't sit well with Ev.

The cast of VH1's Basketball Wives is making it clear to the network that they would like a pay raise. Now. Either they get it or they walk, sources say.

BBW Cast

Filming for BBW Season 5 is underway, but Shaunie O'Neal, Evelyn Lozada, Tami Roman and Suzie Ketcham currently do not have contracts.

The actually-unmarried wives are in the process of renegotiating their contracts and want big raises, claiming the show does VERY well for VH1.

Kenya Bell of Basketball Wives is no longer a basketball wife.

Not that the VH1 show ever lived up to its title (baby mamas is more like it), but now it's even less so as Kenya's marriage to Charlie Bell is now kaput.

The Bells were in a bitter battle over money, with him asking her for support (she's the one getting paid now) and her looking for a cut of his savings.

Charlie and Kenya Bell

A settlement was reached in which Charlie must pay $1,000 a month in child support, but they will share custody and neither will pay spousal support.

Charlie and Kenya Bell have two daughters together.

Kenya was awarded $780,000 from Charlie's savings, leaving him with $656,000, along with half of the $670,000 he had saved in another account.

She also gets half of his NBA 401k plan, NBA retirement plan, NBA pension, NBA welfare plan and NBA benefit plan, plus one of their two homes.

Charlie Bell gets none of her future Basketball Wives money. Not a bad deal for Kenya, considering she came at Charlie with a box cutter last year.

Safe to say Chad Johnson missed Evelyn Lozada's interview on Nightline.

The Basketball Wives star told ABC she hasn't spoken to her hubs since the "humiliating" incident in which Chad head-butted her, and probably won't again.

“I would like for him to tell me he got help and that he’s working on himself,” said Evelyn, adding that her husband "made a bad choice that destroyed his life."

Ocho, meanwhile, just got a new tattoo of Evelyn's FACE on his leg:

Fans, not surprisingly, were a bit confused as to why Chad would get the tattoo, given the fact that Evelyn filed for divorce after six weeks of marriage.

The former Miami Dolphin was not happy with the Twitter inquiries.

When @TeeSplash101 wrote "I really want to know why @ochocinco tatted Evelyn's face on his leg post divorce," Chad responded "Divorce? Child please... that's my WIFE."

Then, after @CCHx3REH asked "I thought she filed for divorce tho?", Johnson replied "I dont give a flying pretzel in skittle rainbow hell what she filed for..."

Chad Johnson, everybody. Here's Ev's interview on Nightline:
