Amber Rose Says Family Skipped Her Wedding to Wiz Khalifa Because He's African-American

Amber Rose Says Family Skipped Her Wedding to Wiz Khalifa Because He's African-American

Amber Rose wears a low-cut pink dress while relaxing poolside with some friends on Saturday afternoon (January 17) in Miami, Fla.

The night before, the 31-year-old model posed and Blac Chyna while hosting Diva Fridays at G5ive Lounge together.

Amber opens up about why some of her family didn’t attend her wedding to Wiz Khalifa during Light Girls airing Monday, January 19 @ 9PM on OWN.

“With my family, they feel like they’re more superior or better than an African American because we’re Creole and we have culture and that’s something I battle with most of my life,” Amber says (via E! News). “It’s more of the older people in my family.”

She continues, “It’s such a sensitive subject that it’s hard to explain yourself without sounding mean or bitter or angry, but I am. I’m angry that my family is like that and they want to pass so bad that they raise my mom and my uncles and my aunts to not fully know their culture. Our younger generation, we’ve embraced it so much and I feel like that’s why my father is white.”

    She’s incoherent. I could barely make sense of what she said, especially the last part.

  • ILuvQuiet

    Really? Amber Rose’s family feels they are superior? Have they ever seen any of her ‘work’? That’s nothing to be proud of.

  • TiredofthisCrap

    How the fuck is she Creole??? Her mother is Porteguese and her dads Irish and Italian. All of the Creoles I know are proud of their black heritage as well as their Native American and European heritage. She’s just a white woman.

  • Amber

    why are you idiots ganging up on amber? this girl is sticking up for us!! She is ashamed that her family are being racist and judgemental. Her heart is in the right place!

  • Antonia

    I don’t think she even knows what she said herself, just an airhead. Pretty girl but dumb as a box of crayons.

  • Esmeralda

    This doesn’t make sense for the most part. Her mother is a light skin woman from Cape Verde. Her father is white but she doesn’t look fully white to me. Plus, she was engaged to Kanye West who is a black man but undoubtedly rich! Were they not going to attend that wedding too? Or is it because Wiz is a pothead with a couple of hits and not Kanye West rich?

  • Doryphore

    Her mother is Cape Verdean (mix of black and Portuguese) and her father is Italian.

    Wiz Khalifa has tattoos and smoke weed heavily. So, is it that they’re just ashamed he’s thuggish?

    Anyway, Amber Rose is classless, so they have no reason to think they’re better than anyone when their daughter turn out that way.

  • Mia Miaw

    You r right…nothing she have done is remarquable!..her talent is being naked trashy all the bloody time!

  • TiredofthisCrap

    She had pictures of her family at her wedding posted on Twitter. There are tons of photos of her , her family and black people. She’s not Creole and her family doesn’t hate black people.

  • Leigh

    Haha. Wiz is not a thug. Lol at people thinking everyone black is a “thug.” He is a dumb kid who smokes wayyy to much weed to be coherent. Childish punk is more like it.

  • Leigh

    and they have a son, not a daughter

  • Leigh

    If Doryphore is correct about her ethnicity, then technically her mother’s side of the family is considered to be Creole.

  • TiredofthisCrap

    Go to her Wikipedia page, she’s claiming her mother is half Scottish, so her mothers father is Portuguese. So her mother is white!!!!!!!!!! Her dad Irish and Italian he’s white!!!!! Amber is white!!!!!!! They are dark because their are dark Italians and Portguese are dark as well. She’s just a plain white woman.

  • Phillygx@gmail.com Jxx1jxxe

    Just for the record Amber is from South Philly Home of the “REAL BLACK MAFIA” she may have white relative but she is a sister for real if she was into white guys they are only 6 blocks away and WIZ K. 7 hours away you do the MATH….

  • Phillygx@gmail.com Jxx1jxxe

    I do Her again again and again

  • Taylor

    So, instead of trying to sympathize with her about her racist family, people dismiss her completely, calling out her race and profession. You all are more horrible than you think.

  • Richard Stephen

    It’s obvious this is BS, but with that I think her parents had every right to feel that way, I mean have you seen the state of him.

  • Antonia

    Right, he didn’t even grow up in a hood or ghetto.

  • Antonia

    Hahaha okay go find her then.

  • Amber

    ‘tiredofthiscrap’ – what I think of you honey
