What Ethnicity Is Tyrus?
Tyrus has a mixed ethnicity, including African American roots and caucasian roots. He inherited his African American roots from his father and his caucasian roots from his mother. However, the wrestler’s looks are a result of the mixture of the two roots from both parents.
He has fair skin, black kinky hair, and brown eyes. His looks have given him the fierce aura every wrestler needs. His skin color has made many people mistake him for being totally black; however, he still has a white heritage.
Tyrus was born in Boston, Massachusetts, United States, on February 21, 1973. He is considered an American citizen based on his place of birth. The wrestler had a rough upbringing because he grew up without one of his parents. He disclosed that he had an abusive father who used to hit him.
However, their family separated as a result of his father’s abusive nature. It was revealed that his mother had left his father to go back to her parents’ house after Tyrus received a massive beating from his father that affected his eyes. Owing that he has black roots and his mother’s family was racist, his mother could not take him and his brother with her when she left.
As a result of that, he moved to a foster home, where he lived with his brother for some time before their mother got them back. While he was at the foster home, Tyrus considered bleaching his skin so his maternal grandparents would accept him, but he could not go through with it.
After his mother eventually got full custody of them Tyrus still left home at the age of 15 to make his own way.
