True, having a successful career in the entertainment industry or in fields like sports and politics are among the most prominent ways to attain celebrity status. If there is no way for you to become famous through those means, all hope isn’t lost. You can still get popular as an online gamer, YouTuber, or an Instagram model. None of these accounts for the fame and public attention accorded to Suzanne Rawlings. She is also not popular because of things like her wealth, lifestyle or for any controversial reason. The woman’s claim to fame is totally as a result of her relationship with the American entrepreneur and media personality, Richard Rawlings.
