May 11, 1988
Blac Chyna is an American model, socialite, and entrepreneur who was born on May 11, 1988, in Washington D.C. When she was just 19 years old, Chyna started strip dancing to pay for her college fees at a nightclub called Old Diamonds. She attended Johnson & Wales University in Miami but dropped out to pursue a career in strip dancing and modeling. In 2011, she started dancing at a more popular strip club, King of Diamonds, where she named herself, upon a customer’s suggestion, Blac Chyna.
The exotic dancer became well known among celebrities in 2010 after Canadian rapper Drake mentioned her name in one of his hit songs ‘Miss Me.’ She appeared in Kanye West’s music video for his song ‘Monster,’ as Nicki Minaj’s stunt double, which brought the dancer more recognition. In the same year, she began her modeling career. After appearing in rapper Tyga’s music video for his song ‘Rack City’ in 2011, the pair started and she gave birth to their son, King Cairo Stevenson, in 2012.
Shortly after the launch of her boutique, in 2014, she launched Lashed by Blac Chyna, her very own adhesive lashes brand, and within the same year, she opened a beauty bar in L.A. where she offers makeup classes. In 2016, two years after Blac Chyna and Tyga split, she became romantically involved with Rob Kardashian, whose half-sister Kylie Jenner, happened to be dating Tyga at the time. Kardashian and Blac Chyna started their own reality T.V. show called “Rob & Chyna” that same year. In November 2016, Chyna gave birth to their daughter, Dream Renee Kardashian. The couple split in 2017 after there were various rumors about domestic violence and cyberbullying between the couple.
After appearing in multiple reality shows, including the popular “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood,” and her mother, Tokyo Toni’s, reality show “Tokyo Toni’s Finding Love ASAP,” Chyna started her own reality show in 2019 called “The Real Blac Chyna,” which is still on the air today.
