Blac Chyna is an American dancer and model with an estimated net worth of approximately $1.5 million. Born Angela Renee White, no one is entirely certain what her actual birthdate is other than the fact that it is on May 11. There are some reports that she was born in 1988 and other reports she was born in 1989. There is very little that is confirmed about her actual life growing up other than the fact that she took up stripping and modeling when she was just barely a legal adult. Her thought process for both was to take up a job that allowed her to make more money, and that allowed her to break into the world of fame.
She chose her stage name because of a man she met at a strip club where she worked who called himself Black China thanks to his black skin and Chinese eyes. She liked the name, changed the spelling and began working with it professionally. Before she took on the name Blac Chyna, she went by Cream. She began posing for magazines in 2010 while she was still stripping, and it was not long before she became famous thanks to the fact that rapper Drake used her name in a song the same year. She began getting jobs working on music videos for performers such as Nicki Minaj, Kanye West and even Tyga. Not long after working with Tyga, the two became romantically involved.
She began dating him in 2011 and the couple became engaged on 2012. The couple welcomed a little boy together earlier the same year, and they were together until they called it quits in 2014. In 2013, Blac Chyna decided she needed to go a different route in life, and she began taking cosmetology courses in California. She then opened up her online store and eventually decided to design a line of false eyelashes. At the same time, she opened up a beauty bar in Encino and began offering making up classes. She does everything from body wraps to eyebrow threading and most anything else you can think of. Her net worth comes primarily from her work as a designer and as a model, and she continues to rake in big bucks just from appearances and her name thanks to the fact that the Kardashian family has made her even more famous.
When Tyga began dating Kylie Jenner, the two women began feuding and they made her name more famous than ever. Then in 2016, Blac Chyna began dating outcast brother Robert Kardashian, much to the dismay of his entire family. They like to keep things together, and it’s not working out for them now. However, being linked to their name makes her more famous and it allows her to become more relevant and make more money off of people visiting her salon, buying her products and even paying to her make appearances at their clubs, parties and other locations and venues.
