Who is Tokyo Toni?
American socialite Shalana Jones Hunter, probably known better as Tokyo Toni, was born under the zodiac sign Libra on 12 October 1971, in the Dominican Republic. Tokyo’s perhaps only known for being the mother of American model, socialite and TV personality Angela Renee White, aka Blac Chyna.
Education and early life
Tokyo and her family moved to the US not long after she was born, thus her American nationality; she was raised by her parents, but because Tokyo respects their privacy, not many details have been disclosed about them. As she’s yet to talk about having siblings, most of Tokyo’s fans believe her to be an only child.
Tokyo studied at a local high school, and was into a couple of activities during her time there, as she took dance and acting lessons, played volleyball, and eventually became a cheerleader. She was only 16 when she became pregnant with her boyfriend Eric Holland, a non-celebrity American; the two later married but divorced not long afterwards because Eric was unfaithful, and had children with other women.
Upon matriculating, Tokyo found work to financially support herself and her daughter, and thus didn’t attend college.
Tokyo’s today followed by over 20,000 people on Instagram, and has posted close to 60,000 pictures and videos onto the network; most of her content features her during her everyday life, and social media networks are one of Tokyo’s main sources of income.
She’s been featured in her daughter’s reality show “The Real Blac Chyna”, which has been airing since 2019 and today stars Blac, Tokyo and Treasure Thompson; it follows the everyday lives of Blac Chyna and those closest to her.
It’s believed that Tokyo’s today running her own small business, but she’s yet to address these rumors.
Love life and husband
Tokyo doesn’t shy away from speaking about her love life in public, and it’s widely known that she’s today a married woman.
She dated many men following her and Blac Chyna’s father’s divorce, and in 2012, Tokyo exchanged vows with American non-celebrity Marcellus Hunter; not many details have been shared about him, but it’s believed that he’s a businessman. The two divorced in 2017, and it’s widely believed that Tokyo filed for divorce because Marcellus had been unfaithful, but this hasn’t been confirmed; they were eventually able to reconcile and married again on 14 February 2020 – Blac Chyna wasn’t able to attend the ceremony, but watched her mother’s Instagram livestream.
There are no other men whom Tokyo’s perhaps been with, that we know about; she’s married to Marcellus Hunter as of October 2023 and has a daughter Blac Chyna with former husband Eric Holland.
Interesting facts and hobbies
Tokyo enjoys spending time with her daughter, and often keeps her company while she’s travelling around the US for work.
She’s passionate about fashion, and goes shopping for clothes nearly every day.
Tokyo loves to party, and a lot of her Instagram content features her attending parties with her friends.
Although she enjoys seeing tattoos on other people, Tokyo’s afraid of the needle, and doesn’t want her skin inked.

Who is her daughter Blac Chyna?
American model, rapper and social media star Angela Renee White – aka Blac Chyna – was born under the zodiac sign Taurus on 11 May 1988, in Washington, D.C. USA. She began attracting attention in 2010, when she performed as a stunt double for famous Trinidadian-American rapper and singer-songwriter Onika Tanya Mara-Petty – aka Nicki Minaj – in the music video “Monster” by Kanye West, and in the same year popular Canadian rapper and singer Aubrey Drake Graham mentioned her in his song “Miss Me”, which led to Blac Chyna being featured in “Black Men’s Magazine”, “Straight Stuntin” and “Dimepiece”.
Black Chyna was raised in Washington, D.C. solely by her mother and has revealed that growing up wasn’t easy, as she and Tokyo rarely had enough money to pay the bills and put food on the table. She studied at Henry E. Lackey High School in Maryland, and fell in love with rap music during her four years there, but dreamed of becoming a famous model or actress. Blac Chyna matriculated in 2006, and then found work to financially support herself rather than enrolling at college. However, she began attending JLS Professional Mae Up Artist School in February 2013, and after earning her degree launched her make-up brand Lashed by Blac Chyna, and her online shop ‘88fin’.
Blac Chyna’s career took off when she began appearing in music videos of various famous rappers; her striking appearance and confidence in front of the camera quickly garnered her a significant following, and numerous opportunities in the world of fashion and entertainment, while her modeling work also allowed her to collaborate with major brands, and grace the covers of various magazines.
One of the key moments in Blac Chyna’s career was her relationship with famous American rapper Tyga, with whom she has a son, King Cairo Stevenson, born in 2012. The high-profile relationship put her in the spotlight, opening many doors for her in the entertainment industry.
Blac Chyna ventured into entrepreneurship by launching her own brands of cosmetics, clothes and accessories; her business ventures aim to empower women by enhancing their self-esteem and beauty.
Blac Chyna became even more popular in 2016, when she starred in her own reality show “Rob & Chyna”, alongside her then-fiancé Rob Kardashian; the show documented their tumultuous relationship… and eventual split.
Blac Chyna’s life and career have been marked by various legal battles and controversies, including disputes with the Kardashian family, whom she accused of trying to hinder her career; she’s also been involved in legal disputes with former partners.
