India Love Westbrooks, born February 3, 1996, in California, is an American social media influencer, model, and rapper. She started off blogging on Tumblr as a teenager before graduating to posting content on Vine and Instagram. In 2015, the influencer got her big break when she starred in the reality T.V. series, “The Westbrooks,” which follows five sisters and their journey on social media. Since the series debut, Westbrooks has gone on to release music, model for brands like FashionNova, and build up her Instagram community to over five million followers.
Westbrooks is a chameleon when it comes to her career, having been in a campaign with Naomi Campbell and Kendall Jenner; featuring in a WILL.I.AM music video; and releasing several singles, all while juggling the burdens (and benefits) of being a public social media figure. We’ll help you celebrate her special day right here.
India Love Westbrooks has fast become a household name in the world of social media with her stunning good looks and charming personality. The reality star-turned-rapper is known among her fans for being real and promoting a whole lot of self-love. Westbrooks was born on February 3, 1996, in California. She is the daughter of an American entrepreneur, Warren Westbrooks, and Candace (Candy) Westbrooks. She has six siblings.
Westbrooks’ childhood and adolescence were spent between Compton and Corona. She lived in Compton until the sixth grade and then moved to Corona where she attended a Christian school. The social media influencer has been very candid over the years about the bullying she received as a young girl, and how it has shaped her view of herself.
In 2011, Westbrooks got her start in the online sphere with Tumblr, after which she moved on to Vine and Instagram. It was during this time that the young beauty started amassing more and more fans as she was lauded for being authentic.
In 2015, with the release of the reality TV series, “The Westbrooks” on B.E.T., the young internet personality was officially thrust into the spotlight. The Westbrooks were at that point known as the ‘first family of social media.’ As Westbrooks quickly gained prominence on Instagram, she got modeling deals with several brands and was featured in a few music videos including ‘Boys & Girls’ by WILL.I.AM, in 2016. Three weeks after featuring in the video, WILL.I.AM asked Westbrooks to be the brand ambassador for his Apple headphones. The former Black-Eyed Peas member and record producer later approached the reality star to convince her to make her debut in the music industry. Flattered by WILL.I.AM’s trust in her and motivated by the attention she was receiving from one of the music industry’s legends, she conceded and joined the rapper in the studio. What came next was a series of singles including ‘Loco’ in 2018, ‘Talk Yo Sh!t,’ ‘Candy on the Block,’ ‘Trouble,’ and more recently, ‘#Pretty.’
Westbrooks has been linked to several notable figures across industries including Drake, The Game, and most recently professional boxer Devin Haney. Ron Robinson, however, who was her high school sweetheart, remains the first one to have broken her heart. Set to leave for college, Robinson broke up with a teenage Westbrooks, only to reach out to her a year later and ask to get back together. Westbrooks declined, as she’d been dating someone else at the time. The influencer states that they’re still good friends, though. So, here’s to hoping for a happy ending to this love story.
