Saweetie loathed the ‘nepo baby’ claim when her parents were never there for her in childhood

Saweetie never took anything for granted and mentioned that she is working with all brand deals to take care of her family.

With the nepo baby claim spreading like wildfire, the rapper Saweetie came forward in X (formerly Twitter) to explain that the narrative is incorrect. Even if she had successful parents, as a proud, independent person, she never took their help.

Saweetie also shared about how she begged for donations for two days in front of the bank instead of getting help from her parents when she wanted to play sports during her senior year.

Not to leave out, she said that these claims are a slap to a girl who barely spent time with her parents in her childhood while she was taking four jobs to support herself after being broke.

Yet, this does not indicate Saweetie did not love her parents, especially her mother, Trinidad Valentin, who she said had sacrificed much for her.

The model mother, Trinidad Valentin, had Saweetie at 17

Everyone knows that the rapper got her beauty and Asian roots from her Filipino-Chinese descent mother, Trinidad Valentin, who had Saweetie at 17.

Saweetie, real name Diamonté Quiava Valentin Harper, is a 31-year-old American rapper of mixed ethnicity because of her parents, African American father, Johnny Harper, and Asian mother, Trinidad Valentin.

She celebrates her birthday on July 2, being born in 1993. Saweetie is also an older sister to her twin siblings, Milan and Maya, who were born when she was 11.

However, when she was born, her parents were still teens who were hustling in their daily lives to build their careers. At the time, Trinidad was 17, so Saweetie’s grandmother, Roxanne Glass, looked after her, and she gave the rapper the nickname ‘Saweetie.’

Yet, Saweetie was not alone while growing up, given that her parents came from big families: Johnny had eight siblings, and Trinidad had six.

Everyone in her family looked after her, as she was the eldest child. However, she is not alone now; she has successful cousins, including producer Zaytoven and actress Gabrielle Union.

Meanwhile, Saweetie clearly mentioned that everyone in her family led a hustling life as they were working class, and no one had the fruit fall on their lap without any struggles.

As an American video model, her mother had to work after leaving her child at home while her father, a San Jose State footballer, struggled with his career.

Not to leave out her grandfather, Willie Harper, who was the San Francisco 49ers team player, but that did not mean Johnny did not have to work for himself.

So, calling Saweetie a ‘nepo baby’ just because of the successful family does not justify her struggles during her career success.
