Who is model Amiyah Scott?

Born Arthur Scott on the 11th of January 1988, in Manhattan, New York City USA, Amiyah Scott is a 30-year-old African-American now female model and reality TV personality, but perhaps best known for being the most popular transgender cast member of the reality TV show “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”, while she is also a model, event host, actress and makeup artist, mostly previous to her rise to fame. She has been active in the sometimes lucrative reality TV show business since 2015.

Early Life and Education

Amiyah actually grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana, but as for her early youth, there are aren’t many details, nor any information regarding her early education, or if she has a college degree. Although the actual time when Arthur Scott realized he wanted to be Amiyah Scott is unclear, it is a fact that he underwent a partial gender change in 2003, which was finalized by the end of 2005.


Since Amiyah’s parents weren’t ready to accept and embrace their daughter’s change, she soon moved out of her birth house into an apartment, which she paid for by modeling and acting in various ballroom events around New Orleans. Eventually, her parents did come around, and were finally ready to support her. The moment had a massive influence on the young star, as she then felt completely able to pursue her dreams, and at that time started modeling, so Amiyah’s social media profiles experienced a lift, which in turn provided her with many more fans and thus popularity. Eventually, she was noticed by an unknown talent agent that found her fitting as a member of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast. After taping four weeks of the show in 2015, even though the tapings never made it to the screen, Amiyah had already established significant relationships with the other members of the cast. These friendships helped her land the role of Cotton in the new TV series by Lee Daniels entitled “Star”, which is still ongoing and she remains active on the set.

LGBT Activist

Amiyah has long since been a proud member and advocate of the LGBT community. Knowing the kind of social torture that she had to go through as a teenager, she wants to contribute towards making life easier for those with similar problems. Most of all, she is focused on helping now transgender females make their physical and social transitions successfully.

The King

Unlike most stars nowadays, Amiyah actually grew her social media profiles before she rose to fame, actually rising to fame thanks to her going public. Consequently, she bears the word “king” before the name of her Instagram account, but that’s not only for personal reasons. The world-renowned music channel VH1 named Amiyah the “King” of social networks, thanks to the popularity she managed to nurture on her own, and thus becoming the most popular transgender individual on all social networks to date.

She Is Anti-Vegetarian

Although she has absolutely nothing against anyone who chooses to eat only plants, Amiyah herself finds both vegetables and fruits indigestable, and thus doesn’t eat them. She actually enjoys a diet made up of fried foods and gummy bears, and other types of normally unhealthy snacks or fast food. This fact left most of the public puzzled for a while, as it is unknown how she manages to stay in shape with those habits.

Public Condolences

On 18 May 2018, Amiyah released an Instagram post revolving around the death of her on-screen father in the aforementioned show entitled “Star”; the post is meant for Benjamin Bratt, who recently lost his role on the show as his character died according to the script. Amyah expressed her dissatisfaction with his departure, claiming how he was a big support and inspiration for her when she first started the job. It’s understandable that the young star would say something like this, as “Star” was her first show, and it is likely that she needed someone’s guidance in order to find her own solid ground.

I remember when I first got the role of #Cotton and learned that I would be working alongside you @benjaminbratt & La @queenlatifah Two legends in the game. And when it came out that you were Cotton’s dad, our bond only grew even stronger. As sad as I am to see you go, I’m honored to be able to say that I know you and thankful for all of the advice, genuine love and support that you’ve given me. Having you as a TV dad, as a first time actor, was a blessing that benefited me more than you even know. I’ve learned soooo much from you and I got to watch you do your thing first hand. I will remember the on & off set convos, laughs & memories we created forever. Love Always ❤️ #RIPjahil #STAR @staronfox
