’90 Day Fiancé’ Spoilers: 5 Things You Need To Know About Brittany Banks
How much do you know about TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé-The Other Way Star Brittany Banks? Here are five things to know about Brittany!
Brittany Banks’ Birthday And Family Members
Brittany is 26 years old, although her exact birthday has not been publicized. She was born in Chicago, Illinois to Audrey and Greg Banks, now divorced. She has one sister, Virginia and a baby niece. Audrey and Virginia live in Chicago, while Greg lives in Palm Beach, Florida, where Brittany was living with him more than she was spending time in Chicago.
Greg and Audrey separated when Brittany was a baby. She was in Chicago visiting her sister Audrey when she met Jordanian Yazan Abu Hurira via computer. As viewers will recall, this led to a tumultuous relationship which also led to danger for Yazan, which is something Brittany has been dealing with in the most recent episodes of the show.
Brittany’s Ex-Husband And Past Relationships
Brittany’s ex-husband, whom she married at the tender age of seventeen, was a Haitian national in the United States on a visa. He had spent his entire life in the United States, yet he was later deported. He was also only seventeen when the two of them married. Like Yazan, her ex was also very controlling and Brittany admits to it being a toxic relationship.
She only just recently obtained a legal divorce from him, which was another secret that she kept from Yazan, causing problems between them and his family. Brittany also admitted in an interview with Entertainment Tonight’s Melicia Johnson a few months ago that she had dated a man in his eighties, eighty-five to be exact.
In spite of their vast age difference, she and the older man found they had a lot in common and were perfect companions for one another. Brittany said she learned a lot from her senior friend, and they appreciated what was on the inside and weren’t so focused on the outside of each other.
Brittany’s Rap Career
Brittany has talked about being an aspiring rapper; as of this writing, she has released two rap singles, “Turn You Out” and “Boss Brittany.” In conjunction with her rap music and trying to promote herself in that manner, she has also done marketing tours and performed her music on stage.
She has also performed her rap music on Instagram live videos on her Instagram account, as well as some YouTube performances. She was most recently featured in a YouTube video by “A Solo Vision”. The video garnered 9.9K views in one night! She was also featured in a video by Jus Dre, for the song “Be Like Me”.
Brittany has also been working as a model, with several photo shoots notoriously posted on her Instagram account, which photos were deleted. They were only notorious in the sense that Yazan’s extended family members thought they were pornography, and reported it back to Yazan’s father. These were shots in skimpy swimsuits by a swimming pool with another woman or two also modeling swimsuits.
Brittany Has Also Dabbled In Acting And Works As A Social Influencer
Brittany considers herself to mostly be a social influencer, but she has dabbled in acting. She created numerous comedy videos with YouTube comic TPindell. She also hosts a podcast called “AngryKat”.
