Amber Rose is an American model with an estimated net worth of $5 million. She was born on October 22, 1983 in Philadelphia. Her father is Michael Levonchuck, and he was an active member of the United States Military for more than 20 years. Her mother is Dorothy Rose, and she took her name from her mother when she went into show business. She has a brother named Antonio, and she spent most of her life in Philly where she grew up on the south side of the city. Her parents divorced when she was a teenager. She wanted to help her mother put food on the table and provide for herself and her brother, so she got a job. The problem was that she was only 15 at the time and was finding it quite difficult to find real work that paid well, so she lied about her age and began working as a stripper at a club where she took her clothes off under the name Paris.
She decided then that she could use her face and her body to get work in other areas of the entertainment industry, so she then decided she would go ahead and get a job working as a music video star. She landed a part in a Ludacris video, and that’s when rapper Kanye West noticed her. It was 2008 at the time, and he noticed that she seemed to have some skills he liked, so he found her. She wanted to model for his sneaker line, so she did. After that, she was hired by Louis Vuitton and other fashion icons to model for them. She walked fashion shows, worked on music videos for some of the most famous faces in the industry and she then decided to star in reality television with Russell Simmons.
She also decided in 2009 that she wanted to launch an eyewear line, so she did. She calls it Rose and Ono. She also has a book that was published by Simon & Schuster and she has a line of emojis. It was announced in May 2016 that should would be hosting her own talk show on VH1 at some point in the year. Her personal life, however, is what makes Amber Rose most famous. She famously dated rapper Kanye West for two years until 2010. When that relationship ended, she married and had a baby with rapper Wiz Khalifa. Their marriage did not work out and they are now divorced.
Amber Rose has a son with Wiz Khalifa who was born in 2013. She shares custody of her little boy with her ex-husband. The star famously feuded with the famous Kim Kardashian when she married and had a baby with Kanye West, and the two have since made up. She remains famous mostly due to the fact that she always manages to find herself in the middle of controversy at some point or another, and she is someone who does not back down.
