Alexis’ personal life has seen a handful of drama in its day. One might say her involvement with a famous person didn’t make it easier to keep a low profile. As mentioned earlier, she has made the headline a couple of times for different controversial reasons. We will begin with the genesis of it all, her relationship with Fetty Wap.
Alexis Skyy and Fetty Wap
Fetty Wap and Alexis dated for two years, parting ways in 2016. She was a dancer when they met through a mutual friend, and as their relationship progressed, she gradually left dancing. Their relationship only became public in 2015, and it brought Alexis fame.
Interestingly, they started dating while the rapper was still in a relationship with another woman. The relationship was constantly in the news for different controversies, one of which is the paternity of Alexis’ child, born in 2018.
Alexis Skyy leaked tape
Not too long after Alexis and Fetty Wap split, their names were once again in the media for the wrong reasons. A video recording of them being intimate went viral, with speculations that Fetty may have released it. The rapper however denied the allegations, saying he knew nothing about how it came out. He added that he would not allow anyone to profit from it, and that his attorneys were investigating the situation.
Alexis Skyy daughter
On 4 January 2018, almost two years after Alexis and Fetty Wap had split up, she gave birth to a baby girl, Alaiya Grace. The baby was born prematurely, three months ahead of her expected due date, which was April of the same year. Thanks to proper medical care, the child survived the ordeal, but not without a few challenges. In January 2019, Alaiya had to undergo an emergency brain surgery after vomiting excessively while on a flight from Atlanta to New York.
Her premature birth had left her with some complications which reared their heads every now and then. She was diagnosed with a condition called, Hydrocephalus — a disease responsible for bleeding and fluid in the brain due to the pressure on the head during birth. By the time she was a year old, Alaiya had had four brain surgeries. To help with the condition, she had a device implanted in her head that goes down her neck and into her stomach to help drain the fluid.
Alexis Skyy baby daddy – Brandon Medford
The birth of Alexis’ daughter launched a lot of talk in the media and among the public about who the father is. Her relationship with Wap had long ended by then, but she claimed he fathered the child. This accusation led to a heated exchange between Alexis and her ex’s baby mama, Masika Kalysha Tucker, who had two kids for him. Although the rapper seemed to agree at first, he later came out to express his doubts.
The paternity saga also involved actor, composer, and rapper Solo Lucci, who came forward to claim the paternity of Alaiya. Alexis contended his claims, and they resorted to a DNA test to resolve the controversy. The results proved Alexis right, and she wasted no time in updating the public through social media.
Eventually, in 2020, businessman and luxury car dealer Brandon Medford came forward. As it turned out, Medford was indeed Alaiya’s father.
Alexis Skyy tattoos
One prominent feature of Alexis’ banging body is her tattoos. The TV star has nothing less than 25 tattoos on her body, the most famous of which is the butterfly on one of her bottom cheeks. When the going was good with Fetty Wap, she also got a tattoo of his first name, Willie, behind one of her ears. She later covered it up with a feather tattoo after they parted ways. In a recent Instagram post, Alexis expressed the desire to get rid of all her body tattoos. “I really wish I [could] remove all my tattoos, even the butterfly,” she said on her IG story.
Fetty Wap has a handful of babymamas, none of who has any love for Alexis. She didn’t help her own case by trying to pull a paternity fraud on him either. Lehzae Zeona Lowder, a native of Compton, California and one of Fetty’s babymamas, who has two kids with the rapper, is famous for her messy feud with Alexis. The beef got even meatier when the two got into a fight outside of a New Jersey club on in January 2019. As reported by Shade Room, Alexis arrived to the club where Lehzae was hosting a party, and was ambushed and attacked by Lehzae. Lowder allegedly threw bottles at Skyy, forcing her to leave the club. Skyy went home while her entourage went over to a nearby White Castle in Paterson.
Lowder followed them, in hopes to find Alexis and continue the fight. They pulled into the White Castle restaurant, where Zeona threw more bottles and pulled out a knife. The scene was stormed by the police and Zeona was arrested. She was subsequently charged with misdemeanor and reckless endangerment.
Alexis Skyy boyfriend
It would seem Alexis is currently in a relationship with a fashion designer named Jose Rodriguez. While she has yet to post his face on her social media, she has made several subtle posts about him on her stories.
Alexis Skyy net worth
As said earlier, Alexis is currently estimated to be worth $500,000. She makes money mainly from her business ventures and brand influencing.
Controversy can keep one’s name in the news and on the lips of all and sundry but hardly does too well for one’s reputation. Although Alexis has had her share of these for many years, and it seems that she is now in a better place. Her child is growing healthily, her businesses are thriving, and her love life seems fine. It is safe to say she has seen the rough patch through, and we hope it is peace from here on out.
