Behind the Curtains
Nikki Mudarris was born on June 28, 1990, in Los Angeles, California, US, to Abu Mudarris and Marcelle Mudarris. She is of Moroccan descent from her mother’s side and a mix of Lebanese and Italian descent from her father’s side. Her elder brother Anthony Omar Mudarris succumbed to drug overdose on June 13, 2015, in California. She also has a sister called Monique. Nikki was sceptical about getting judged by others due to her family’s strip club chain business. She thus did not reveal such fact to her acquaintances while growing up and instead told them that her family was in real estate business. Nikki was not only good in academics but also took part in stage plays and other events of her school. Her parents wanted her to build up a career in business rather than the showbiz. She thus enrolled at the University of Southern California from where she completed her graduation with a degree in Business Communication in 2014.
Nikki has always remained in controversies due to her personal life and romantic associations. In 2012, she began dating Mally Mall. She made headlines in 2015 when a sex tape featuring her was allegedly leaked by Mall. As the video was leaked without the knowledge and consent of Nikki, she filed a restraining order against Mall. According to sources, she has dated Austin Daye, had an intimate relationship with Joseline Hernandez, and was also romantically associated with Jamal Rashid and Rosa Acosta. Sources mention that since May 2016, Nikki is in a relationship with Safaree Samuels.
