Ever since she started hooking up with Rob Kardashian, Alexis Skyy‘s name has been everywhere. But if you’re not a Love & Hip Hop fan, then you might not have heard about her until she allegedly got in a fight with Rob’s ex Blac Chyna on January 12. After an altercation at the club, the two women started going after each other on social media, and things started to get even pettier when Rob called Alexis his #womancrushwednesday. But who is the star, and how does she fit into all the Kardashian drama? Check it out.
Alexis Skyy’s been a controversial figure on Love & Hip Hop.
Though she only started appearing on the show in 2017, her arrival made some serious waves. After she was added to the cast of Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood, her co-star Masika Kalysha refused to film with her. The two stars both have children with Fetty Wap, and clearly there’s bad blood between them. In fact, the drama is so real that Masika refused to even discuss her on camera — and working out the logistics of how to include them both got the singer demoted from the main cast to the supporting cast. Alexis, 24, also was linked to Solo Lucci on the show, and consequently butted heads with him, too, after announcing her pregnancy. Though her time on the show didn’t last long, in November 2018, she revealed that she and Fetty Wap would be joining the cast of Love & Hip Hop: New York instead, following their family and her budding career as a rapper.
Alexis has a daughter with Fetty Wap.
The couple dated for two years, but officially broke things off in April 2016. And yet, in October 2017, Alexis, 24, revealed that she was pregnant with Wap’s baby. Their daughter, Alaiya, was born three months premature on January 4, 2018. Not long after, the little girl was diagnosed with hydrocephalus, and she’s undergone four brain surgeries and the implantation of a shunt to help get her healthy. Though there’ve been rumors surrounding the paternity of the baby, with Solo Lucci claiming that she could be his, Alexis has made it perfectly clear Wap was with her in the hospital when she gave birth and that she’s always known he was the father of her daughter.
They also share a sex tape scandal.
In January 2017, a sex tape they made when they were together leaked, though neither party took responsibility for how it got out. At the time, Alexis told Hollywood Life that it wasn’t her. “I have a business. I have a lot to lose doing that. I’m trying to act,” she said. “These type of things follow you. That’s not the route I was trying to go. I transitioned [from] a vixen to a businesswoman. And on his end, it’s not really a good image on him either. I don’t condone it on both ends. Whoever did it is trying to play me and trying to downplay me … I was on a plane on my way to Miami and a picture leaked out. And when I landed, the video was out. I called my lawyer before I took off and told him he had to put a stop to this because I was scared. I’m not accusing anybody. All I know is that it got out.”
She’s been a dancer and a model, and now she’s an entrepreneur and rapper.
In January 2017, the star told Hollywood Life that she and Wap met while she was dancing. Reportedly, she was an exotic dancer in Atlanta, Georgia before opening her own business, a spa that has since closed. On LHHNY, she documented her journey as she started to sing and rap professionally, locking down a deal with Treyway, the label that had represented Tekashi69.
These days, she’s getting close with the Kardashians.
After Rob called her his WCW, they were spotted having dinner together in Kris Jenner‘s kitchen — and then rumors started to swirl. Whether Rob and Alexis linking up is what lead to the fight with Chyna or Rob’s petty side had him reaching out is yet to be determined, but it seems like they may have been hanging out for a while now. In a heated exchange with Chyna’s boyfriend, Kid Buu, the mother-of-one defended herself against accusations of clout chasing by admitting that she “loves” Rob. And over the weekend, it seems that she also got a chance to throw some love his sister Kim Kardashian‘s way, posting KKW Beauty products with heart emojis on Instagram. Maybe the two women got a chance to bond over their leaked sex tapes? All we know is that we need to see a play date for little Chicago West and Alaiya.
