Her on-and-off relationship with rapper Moneybagg Yo has been under scrutiny for a while now, as fans aren’t sure what is truly going on with the pair. Whatever be the case, the drama queen Ariana Fletcher has shown that she is one tough cookie and a force to reckon with. But how did this average girl from Chicago come to make a name for herself? Let’s look at her profile and other interesting facts below.
Ariana Was Born 26 Years Ago As An American Citizen
Ariana Fletcher was born on 12 July 1995 in Chicago, Illinois, United States. Her father’s name is unknown, though he was a high school janitor, while her mother, Erin Fletcher, worked as a waitress at a local café. Ariana mainly grew up with her mother and her two siblings, Kyle Jamison and Ashley. Her estranged father is unfortunately not part of her life.
In a Twitter post on 2 August 2019, Ariana cleared up the air about her ethnic background. She tweeted, “… I’m Creole and Puerto Rican. Case closed.” As for her nationality, she is an American, born and brought up in Chicago, Illinois, United States.
Ariana Has a Special Bond With Her Late Brother Kyle
After her brother passed away due to a sickness in 2013, Ari changed all of her social media handles in honor of his name, Kyle Jamison (@therealkylesister). She explained why she chose the name of her social media handle to reflect her relationship with her brother because she wants his “name to live on forever.”
She went on to say it was “so you can’t even speak to me without speaking about him.” Ari was just 18 years old when her brother passed away, and his death greatly affected her life. She even went on and tattooed his face on her arm and still wears the tattoo to date.
Ari Fletcher’s Entertainment Career Choice Made Her Famous
Fletcher went to Chicago Vocational High School, and after graduation, she proceeded to Northern Illinois University in Dekalb, Chicago, Illinois. However, she had to drop out of college after her brother’s death and take odd jobs to support her family. She worked as a waitress at Adrianna’s Nightclub located in Chicago, and later on, in 2015, she began her modeling career through her Instagram. This is not uncommon to beautiful young women these days who are bold and daring enough to take this path to carve out a career in modeling.
Today, Ariana Fletcher is famous as a social media personality and an entrepreneur. Her first Instagram account, @therealkylesister, was launched in 2015 when she was still G Herbo’s girlfriend. With her beautiful curvy figure and sassy personality, she slowly grew her following to 4.8 million followers. Ari’s wealth came from her brand endorsement deals and promotions on social media handles. She is an ambassador for Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty brand and has promoted other A-list brands like Fashion Nova, Waist Snatchers, and more.
Her entrepreneurial venture started in 2016 when she co-founded and launched her own hair company KYCHE Extensions. In an interview with AfroTech, Ariana revealed that she makes around $150,000 by monetizing her posts on Instagram. She also has a YouTube channel, which she opened in November 2016. The channel has over 300k subscribers and more than 6 million views. Her Twitter account has 1.6 million followers. Ari is really focused on building her million-dollar brand, and the superstar seems unstoppable in her quest for fame and fortune.
