Back by popular demand, we’re continuing to expose the familial ties of your favorite Black celebrities. These sisters have the luxury of hanging out with their fabulous siblings and schmooze with Hollywood elite on account of their relations. But the only thing separating these siblings from the Kardashians is that they choose to stay out of the limelight. Check ’em out:
Viola Davis is the youngest of six children and although we haven’t seen the bulk of her family out and about, her sister Deloris Grant, a drama teacher in Rhode Island, has accompanied her to several high profile events.
Britain-raised rapper singer Estelle has eight brothers and sisters and so it’s no surprise that musical talent manifested in at least one of her siblings. Her little sister Haidara Swaray is a songwriter and singer whose been described by The Guardian as “more of a La Roux/Little Boots-style synth-pop girl with some of Ladyhawke’s 80s US AOR sensibility and a smidge of thecocknbullkid’s idiosyncratic lyrical bent.” Yeah, quite different from big sis’ R&B bent these days.
One of our favorite celebrity eye candy’s Michael Ealy has said that he’s very protective of his older sister (pictured on the left with his mom).
T.I.’s sister Precious hasn’t appeared on his VH1 reality show yet but he’s known to be very tight with his family so we’re sure she’ll show up soon.
When Mama Jones isn’t meddling in her son Jim Jones’ business, she’s working with her daughters Keisha and Precious. We’re not sure how much they’re working together these days however. A few years ago, the sisters were publicizing their clothing line, Jonezz, which was designed by their mom. Amid the publicity of “Love & Hip Hop,” however, we haven’t heard much about the brand.
Ne-yo’s little sister Nikki Smith works as a singer and songwriter like her big brother. Smith has apparently worked on projects with Dr. Dre, Rodney Jerkins, Nina Sky and more. Although she’s attempted to strike out on her own as a singer, she hasn’t been successful as of yet.
Wow, don’t they look like triplets? Very good looking triplets at that. Lance is obviously tight with his sisters Staci and Traci but unfortunately, we can’t tell you more about the Gross sisters. Hopefully, they’re giving him good relationship advice so he can avoid another Eva Marcille episode.
