Who is rapper Apple Watts and what is known about her life?
Apple’s birth name is Jontelle Lafaye Watts, and she is a model, rapper, and a video vixen. She endured a rough childhood growing up in the foster care system in South Central Los Angeles.
She rose to fame as a stripper, which led to a brief stint in pornography under the name “Ms. Apple Bottom.” She found fame after starring in multiple music videos from top hip hop artists, most famously the video for Wicked by rapper Future.
She joined Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood in the fifth season, which showed her struggle to go from a successful stripper to a chart-topping rapper. The show also documented her life as a single mother to three kids – Richard, Kali and Miyaki, from previous relationships.
Her rap career was briefly directed by famous manager Shun Love, who attempted to steer her away from stripping and street life.
The difficult relationship with her father, John Watts was also explored in the show. The two did not have a relationship after Apple was born, and she and John reconnected while on the show.
During the season, he attempted to be more involved in her life. In the season’s finale, Apple discovered from a DNA test that the two aren’t actually biologically related. John admitted he was already aware that Apple was not his biological daughter, and she eventually cut all ties with him.
Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood is currently on hiatus on VH1.
