Early life and education
Nicole was raised in Chicago by her parents, about whom not a lot is known as she respects their privacy; it’s said that her father was a factory worker, and that her mother was a cleaning lady. Because she hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, most of Nicole’s fans believe that she’s an only child.
She was interested in various activities while attending a local high school, including dancing, acting with the school’s drama club, and playing volleyball.
Nicole dreamed of becoming a famous model during her teenage years, and played sports mostly because she believed these would help her with her modelling career.
She matriculated in 2008, and because she hasn’t spoken of her further education, it’s rumored that she didn’t attend college.

Who is her former husband Lil Durk?
Durk Derrick Banks was born in Chicago on 19 October 1992 – his zodiac sign is Libra, and he holds American nationality.
He’s perhaps known best for being the lead member of the rap collective Only the Family, while he gained recognition after the release of his mixtape series “Signed to Streets”.
Lil Durk was seven months old when his father was sentenced to spend life behind bars, and he has revealed that there were times while he was growing up that his mother wasn’t able to put food on the table. He studied at Paul Robeson High School, and it was during his four years there that he launched his YouTube channel and MySpace account, and began uploading his music onto the internet; his YouTube channel is today subscribed to by close to 4.5 million people, and numbers over 3.2 billion views of all his videos combined.
Lil Durk dropped out of school when he was 17, and joined the street gang Black Disciples; he was then arrested on several occasions, and spent some time in jail in October 2011, for possession of a firearm with a defaced serial number.
He became serious about rapping in 2011, and gained some recognition on the internet after the release of his two singles “I’ma Hitta” and “Sneak Dissin”. His third mixtape “Life Ain’t No Joke” was released on 19 October 2012, and it has since been downloaded more than 200,000 times on the online distribution platform DatPiff.
He and his collective Only the Family were invited to a joint venture with Def Jam Recordings in 2013, following the success of Lil Durk’s singles “L’s Anthem” and “Dis Ain’t What U Want”. He released his fifth mixtape “Signed to the Streets 2” on 7 July 2014, and his debut studio album “Remember My Name” was released on 2 June 2015. His second album “Lil Durk 2X” followed on 22 July 2016, and in November of the same year, Lil Durk released his seventh mixtape “They Forgot”.
He released three mixtapes in 2017, entitled “Love Songs for the Streets”, “Supa Vultures” and “Signed to the Streets 2.5” – his two most recent studio albums are “Just Cause Y’all Waited 2” on 8 May 2020, and “The Voice” on 24 December 2020.
It’s surprising that Lil Durk is still alive, as many of his friends and relatives have been involved in criminal activities, and some have been killed; the same could happen to him, simply by association. His cousin, American rapper McArthur ‘OTF Nunu’ Swindle, was killed on 31 May 2014, and his friend and manager Uchenna ‘OTF Chico Dolla’ Agina was also shot and killed, on 27 March 2015. One of his best friends, American rapper King Von was murdered on 6 November 2020, and most recently, on 6 June 2021, Lil Durk’s brother Dontay ‘DThang’ Banks Jr was killed outside a nightclub in Chicago.
