The word on the street is that Michael Darby is suing Candiace Dillard- Bassett for defamation, per TMZ.
According to legal documents, Ashley Darby’s soon-to-be ex-husband is suing Candiace over the comments she made about him during an explosive fight with Ashley while filming season 7 of the Real Housewives of Potomac.
In the scene, Candiace tells Ashley, “Your husband likes to leave you and go to a man named [censored]’s house and suck his ****.” While Candiace doesn’t name names, she later alleges that Michael paid the man for sex.
Naturally, Michael is not happy with Candiace’s claims and insists they are nothing more than BS. He says he sent the singer a cease and desist earlier this year to give her a chance to make things right.
However, Candiace has yet to publicly retract her comments or issue an apology to Michael.
Michael is seeking $2 million in damages.
Candiace has yet to comment on the lawsuit.
Part three of the Real Housewives of Potomac season 7 reunion airs on Sunday, March 5.
