The young actress came under fire when an intimate video of her with Beyoncé's nephew, Julez Smith, was released. That made us reflect on the fact that while Skai has been in the entertainment industry since she was born, there are many things we still don't know about her. Read on to discover 5 fun Skai Jackson facts you probably didn't know.
We know a lot about Skai Jackson, as she rose to fame in 2011 when she was cast to co-star in the Disney Channel series “Jessie” and its 2015 sequel “Bunkd '.”
Now we also know that Julez Smith is part of her dating history. But we still want to know more, which is why we have these 5 fun facts about the 18-year-old artist.
Check it out.
1) Skai started acting at the age of 3
The actress started out as a baby model and quickly landed a role in the 2007 independent film “Liberty Kid” where she played the role of Destiny.
2) Jackson likes showing off her natural hair
Sometimes hair can be a cross for some girls, and they end up choosing to wear wigs all the time because it is easier to always stay beautiful.
In Skai's case, it is the opposite. Since she was little, her mother Kiya taught her that she should accept herself as she is and embrace it.
That is why she takes care of her natural hair and wears it with great pride in every public presentation that she does.
Of course, from time to time she has put on a hairpiece, like all of us!
3) She is a huge Rihanna fan
Not only from Ri Ri's music but also from her Fenty brand.
In fact, the "Jessie" actress always carries in her purse the baby pink lipstick from the brand of the goddess of Barbados which she combines with all her outfits.
4) As a good millennial, Skai is addicted to her cell phone
Having been born in 2002, it is logical that the artist grew up with a cell phone as an extension of her hand.
At age 10, she opened her Twitter and Instagram accounts to stay connected to her fans.
Recently she also started her YouTube channel where she shares with followers her makeup routines and other beauty hacks.
This is why Jackson always carries two cell phones and two portable chargers in her bag to be able to stay connected to the network at all times.
5) Her mother is her manager
Skai grew up with her mother Kiya Cole in New York, and they have both been there to cover their backs at all times. When the little girl began to take the first steps in the industry, her mother took care of everything for her so that she had the best contractual conditions.
So things continue to be like that and in fact, Kiya has done a great job with her daughter's career.
Jackson even has an inspirational book of her own, which she published in 2019 under the title “Reach For The Skai.”
