The couple later divorced along the way, and Mims has all but disappeared from the spotlight. Her ex-husband, on the other hand, continues getting even more famous thanks to his several charting albums as well as his hit songs.
Lakeisha Mims Has American Nationality and is of African-American Ethnicity
Much of Lakeisha Mims’ backstory remains shrouded in mystery. It is known that she has American nationality and is of African-American ethnicity. However, beyond these bare facts, not much else is known. Her date of birth is not available. Her parents’ or siblings’ names are also not available.
Mims’ educational history is also not known but it won’t be out of place to assume that she is educated up to a high school diploma level. It would also not be out of place to assume that Lakeisha Mims was born in the early 80s just like her ex-husband, Yo Gotti, who was born on the 19th of May 1981.
She is the Ex-Wife of Popular Rapper and Record Label Owner, Yo Gotti
Lakeisha Mims’ biggest claim to fame is that she is the ex-wife of Yo Gotti, the popular rapper and record label owner. Real name – Mario Sentell Giden Mims, Yo Gotti was born on the 19th of May 1981 in Memphis, Tennessee. His mother’s name is Geraldine Mims, and he has a brother named Anthony. The rapper has African roots. His father is originally from Zimbabwe, while his mother is from South Africa.
Yo Gotti grew up in the poor and crime-infested areas of Memphis and had to take to hustling at an early age to make ends meet. His family was also involved in this, and they fell afoul of the law on a few occasions. Music will later turn out to be Gotti’s saving grace. He began rapping at the age of 14 and by the age of 19, had dropped his first album, an indie project titled From Da Dope Game to Da Rap Game.
This was in 2000, and Gotti has gone on to establish himself as a force to be reckoned with in hip hop. His success has not come overnight but rather gradual and he now has several bestselling albums to his name. He also owns a record label that has produced successful acts such as Moneybagg Yo and 42 Dugg.
