During the 2020 Christmas season, Brandi Marion received the gift of becoming famous for all the wrong reasons. The aspiring model found herself in the middle of a family drama with Atlanta rapper Playboi Carti and his girlfriend, Australian rapper Iggy Azalea.
Brandi is the alleged side chick that Iggy caught with Playboi on video. The incident caused her to promptly throw him out of the house where the hip-hop couple was raising their infant son, Onyx.
The scandal ended up turning Brandi Marion into a household name. She now has over 266,000 Instagram followers, but a lot of people still don’t know much about her.
