Lyric Anderson, not to be mistaken for Lyrica Anderson (the American R&B singer, and songwriter), was born on September 30, 1994, in New York City, New York, United States.
She is the oldest daughter of Tami Anderson (born to an African American mother and a Puerto Rican father) and Kenny Anderson, an African American. She has a younger sister named Jazz Anderson, who graduated from the University Of Texas, Austin in 2018 and is a HipHop Rapper.
Lyric Anderson has half-siblings from her father’s other marriage: Christy Anderson and Kenny Anderson Jr. Lyric Anderson and her sister are Afro Puerto Ricans. Or whatever they call the mix of African American and Puerto Ricans.
Lyric Anderson was Born into a Celebrity Family
Lyric Anderson’s mother, Tami Roman (born Tamisha Akbar), is an American television personality, model, businesswoman, and actress popular for featuring in episodes of the TV-Show “Basketball Wives”. Her father, Kenny Anderson (born Kenneth Anderson) is an American former professional basketball player who played point guard professionally from 1991 to 2006, mostly in the National Basketball Association. He is presently working as a coach for Fisk University’s basketball team.
Tami and Kenny Anderson tied the knot on 26th August 1994, but the union only lasted for about seven years as they went their separate ways in 2001.
Kenny Anderson went on to marry Tamiyka Lockhart in 2002 but the relationship only saw two basketball seasons and they called it quit in 2004. Kennt Anderson remarried for the third time in 20007 to Natasha Anderson and is still married to her today. Hopefully, the third time is a charm.
Tami Anderson didn’t remarry until 2018. She settled with a former NFL football player, Reggie Youngblood, presently known as a TV and Radio personality and a business owner. Just like his last name, he is very young compared to Tami Anderson.
She Modeled as a Kid
At a very young age, Lyric Anderson’s mother introduced her to the modeling world. She modeled for brands like Baby Phat and Payless Shoes when she was with Ford Models.
As the young beauty grew much older she also modeled for Jennifer Williams’ clothing line “Classy Girl Wardrobe” which was a success. Having found a career path, Lyric Anderson tried to move up her modeling career by entering a famous American modeling show America’s Next Top Model.
Sadly, this didn’t go well for her as she was eliminated in the first round. But that didn’t stop her from pursuing other dreams she had.
