Aisha Mendez Is Mexican
Aisha Mendez was born on April 16, 1994, in Mexico. Her exact place of birth in the North American country has yet to be determined but she is currently 29 years old. Her birth sign is Pisces and she belongs to an ethnic group known as the Mestizos in Mexico.
She also identifies as a Mexican citizen because of her birth in the country and also as part of her parental heritage. She is one of two children born to Sergio and Moya Mendez. One online source claims that the model’s father is a photographer but we have no way of verifying that.
Mendez grew up alongside a brother named Salim Mendez, but not much is known about him, including where he is at the moment or what he does for a living.
Aisha Mendez spent most of her formative years in her country of birth and while her early years were reportedly fun and full of adventure, the public and the media have been denied knowledge about certain aspects of her life, one of which is her formal education background.
Mendez Is A Professional Photographer
While details of her academic accomplishments are fuzzy at best, how Aisha Mendez earns a living has always been laid bare for all to see. She is a professional photographer and she can be counted among people who have followed a childhood dream to completion, seeing that she had harbored dreams of being a photographer since she was a young girl.
Mendez is not selective with the kind of photography she does but the bulk of her portfolio encompasses underwater photography and product photography. The ex-celebrity girlfriend is undoubtedly talented but so far, it would appear that that massive talent has yet to receive the kind of recognition it deserves, hence the decision by certain netizens to think of her as a struggling artist.
Nonetheless, Aisha Mendez displays her works through her social media platforms, including Instagram where she has managed to garner more than 10k followers with stunning photography shots. In addition to being a professional photographer, we have also accurately verified the suggestions that Mendez is a lifestyle blogger and social media model.
Again, like her photography career, she has yet to make any recognizable impact in that field despite having the tools required to make a success out of both career paths. As things stand, it will be quite challenging to reveal her estimated net worth to the world.
Aisha Mendez Used To Date A Hollywood Star
Aisha Mendez could easily have flown under the radar of the mainstream media and public perception if not for her romantic relationship with Hollywood star Martin Henderson. In April 2020, while the rest of the world was quarantining, the social media family was alerted to an April 29 tweet by the Bride & Prejudice star which confirmed the fact that he and Mendez were in fact seeing each other romantically.
While digging deeper into how the former couple met, it was revealed that Henderson had spent the first part of the pandemic year sailing around Mexico and it is believed that he had met the model on one of his trips. Born October 8, 1974, the age difference between the former couple is just under 20 years but it clearly didn’t matter to either party and they carried on with the relationship while posting about it any chance they got on social media.
Their openness about the relationship gave their fans an eyeful as they traveled together often and kept their fans well in the know about their whereabouts.
Aisha Mendez And Martin Henderson Are No Longer Together
In early 2021, rumors that the actor and the model were no longer a couple started making the rounds on various media outlets and social media platforms. These rumors were later found to be the truth as Aisha Mendez and Martin Henderson went their separate ways in early 2021.
There were a lot of conspiracy theories about why the couple ended their relationship. One of these theories revolved around the fact that the age difference between them proved too much of an obstacle because Mendez was allegedly being immature.
However, it could simply have been a case of too much too soon seeing that the former couple quarantined together during the global lockdown.
Martin Henderson’s Ex-girlfriend May Have Found Love Elsewhere
In May 2021, a nude photo shoot featuring the Mexican model and another model named Emily hugging each other while watching the sunset surfaced.
Given that the pictures surfaced a few months before her relationship with the actor ended, many fans suggested that Aisha Mendez had transitioned into a Lesbian and that it might have contributed to the end of her romance with the actor.
However, other than those lesbian suggestions, nothing suggests that Aisha Mendez who now resides in San Miguel de Cozumel, Mexico, has found love elsewhere.
It is also important to note that Henderson is also single but his relationship history includes a period when he dated G.I. Jane star, Demi Moore.
