Mini Bio (1)

Kidada Jones was raised in Bel Air, where her home was often frequented by celebrities like Michael Jackson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. At an early age, Kidada battled an identity crisis. Her father is African-American and her mother is Ashkenazi Jewish. By the time she was 15 she had been kicked out of 11 schools, for acting up, due to not fitting in. Later, Kidada dated Tupac Shakur who, incidentally, was on his way to pick her up when he was gunned down. Three days later, she had his face tattooed on her arm. Now, Kidada has made a name for herself. She made her film debut in The Faculty (1998), playing Venus, Usher Raymond's on-screen girlfriend. Off-screen, she is close friends with Usher, and also with singer Aaliyah. Although her scenes were deleted in The Faculty (1998), Kidada appeared in Black & White (1999) with Brooke Shields, and also in Thicker Than Water (1999).

Along with a rising movie career, Kidada is also a Tommy Hilfiger model, and has appeared in several adds and commercials. The star admits to loving practical jokes, but says she is a drama queen when acting.
