Happy Monday and let’s get ready for drama, Amber Rose is opening up about her wedding day with Wiz Khalifa and why her family didn’t bother to attend. In a personal new interview for the Oprah Winfrey Network, the supermodel shared personal stories of colorism by her family that ultimately affected her special wedding day.
In a sneak peek of Oprah’s new documentary on ‘Light Girls’ Amber Rose talks about her family not accepting her then husband because he was African American… She says:
“With my family, they feel like they’re more superior or better than an African American because we’re Creole and we have culture and that’s something I battle with most of my life,” she explained in a sneak peek of Light Girls airing Monday night. “It’s more of the older people in my family.”
Rose goes on to infer that some of her family didn’t attend her wedding because she married an African American. To this day, that reality still upsets her tremendously.
“It’s such a sensitive subject that it’s hard to explain yourself without sounding mean or bitter or angry, but I am,” she shared. “I’m angry that my family is like that and they want to pass so bad that they raise my mom and my uncles and my aunts to not fully know their culture.”
She added, “Our younger generation, we’ve embraced it so much and I feel like that’s why my father is white.”
Did she just say that African American’s don’t have a culture ? That’s unfortunate. But she was better not having them there. I always say if your family can’t accept somebody you’re with because of the skin of his or her skin, then those family members shouldn’t be in your life.
