Here’s How Cyn Santana Makes Money, Her Love Life Since Budden and All About Her Brother

Cyn Santana is an American model and Instagram celebrity who built her career from the ground up using the power of the internet and social media. The New Yorker remains one of the clearest proofs that one does not need to go through the winding path of getting professional training and joining an agency before booking modeling gigs. Her activity on social media platforms like YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter where she has gained a huge following has gone a long way in helping her achieve fame as she hopes to also become an actor in the coming years.

Cyn Santana’s Rise To Fame and How She Makes Money

Cyn Santana, who was born on 20th October 1992, in Washington Heights, New York, began her career as a social media celebrity. She was known for making funny videos and recording her impressions of celebrities like Ray J, Kat Stacks, Nicki Minaj and several more and posting it on her YouTube page. On other social media sites, she would frequently share photos of herself that revealed not just her beauty but her killer curves.

This was enough to catch the attention of millions of people online as well as those off it. Several other opportunities came knocking on her door as she then began to model and work as a video vixen, appearing in music videos of rappers like 2 Chainz and Nas as well as in a number of magazines.

In 2013, thanks to her relationship with model girlfriend Erica Mena, Cyn Santana was approached by the producers of the VH1 reality TV series, Love and Hip Hop, to feature on the show. She appeared in its fourth season and immediately got thrust into national fame. In the years that followed, the video vixen began to do various other things that include her working on her singing and launching a clothing line called NU. Her debut song, which was recorded live at an event in New York that centered on building awareness about suicide, served as an ode to her late brother.

What Happened to Her Brother?

Tragedy struck in 2014 when Cyn Santana’s brother took his own life. Joel Santana is reported to have committed suicide days before his 24th birthday. The incident broke Cyn down who blamed herself for failing her brother. The video vixen and aspiring actress still feels that way four years later as she admits that she could have done more. She believes that she could have done more to help him get through the depression and other mental issues he was grappling with. This has since spurred her to raise awareness about suicide among other things.

In 2013, Cyn Santana dated fellow Love & Hip Hop: New York star, Erica Mena. The gay relationship caused a huge stir and even reportedly angered Santana’s mother who is said to have called her daughter a prostitute as she threatened to disown her.

Following her breakup with Mena, Santana moved to date a man identified as Ray. Around this time, she was further reported to have dated people like Drake who she appeared on screen with during one of her many video vixen gigs. Neither party confirmed or rebuffed the rumors.

Following all of that, Cyn Santana began dating rapper Joe Budden, what would be her most famous relationship to date. The pair met as cast members of Love & Hip Hop: New York and planned to spend the rest of their lives together as Joe proposed to her during his podcast tour in New York City at the end of 2018.

Before the engagement, the two had welcomed a son named Lexington Budden in December 2017. By May 2019, however, before the two could walk down the aisle, it was reported that they had broken up.

Cyn revealed that Joe had been cheating on her as she reportedly found suggestive photos of strange women on his phone. Although the rapper never rebuffed these claims, he maintains that he was not sexually linked to any other woman while he dated Santana. In early 2020, rumors began circulating about them getting back together. This prompted Santana to release a tweet that reconfirmed her single status all over again.
