The breakdown on Alexis Skyy.
Whether you know Alexis Skyy for her run on reality television, or for her famous figure put on blast by a leaked 2017 sex tape, there's no denying that sis knows how to stay in the headlines. It's also possible you do not know who she is at all, save for seeing her name pop up in these erring-on-the-side-of-scandalous headlines.
From appearances in Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood and Love & Hip-Hop: New York to serving up regular drama and thirst traps on Instagram, Skyy isn't afraid to air out her issues for both fans and haters alike to gobble up. As one of rapper Fetty Wap's baby momma's, Skyy is no stranger to beefing with ladies both online and in the streets, and seems to enjoy the added clout a public feud gives to her hard-ass, don't-take-no-shit public image.
Most recently, Skyy has kicked off 2019 by landing herself in the middle of some serious Kardashian drama when she linked up with Rob Kardashian, and inspired some beef with his ex-baby momma, Blac Chyna. Making waves by inserting herself into the middle of reality television royalty, Skyy is now enjoying a level of fame previously untouched by her ventures both in television and in the business world. If you're wondering just who is the woman that's set social media ablaze with her steady stream of drama and thirst traps--we've got you covered on everything you need to know about Alexis Skyy.
LOVE & HIP-HOP

You can always count on the 24-year-old reality star to keep it messy during her appearances on various iterations of Vh1's Love & Hip-Hop franchise. Most notably, Skyy is known for bringing her social media/IRL beef with another one of Fetty Wap's BMs to the storyline of the show and keeping fans checking for what will come of the explosive tension between the "Trap Queen" rapper's former main chick and his other baby mom's, Masika Kalysha.
Despite the fact that their daughters are technically half-siblings, there's no indication that the two will set aside their differences anytime soon and still frequently come to blows on social media.
Looking to pivot the content of her time on-air, Skyy revealed in November 2018 that she and Fetty Wap would be linking up with the cast of Love & Hip-Hop: New York to document both her burgeoning career as a rapper and her tension-filled, post-breakup relationship with her baby daddy.
RELATIONSHIP WITH FETTY WAP

Before Rob Kardashian came into the picture, Alexis Skyy was linked to New Jersey-bred rapper Fetty Wap. The two dated for two years before calling it quits in 2016 after Skyy learned that Wap cheated on her with his ex-girfriend Masika Kalysha. To make their relationship and subsequent breakup even messier, a sex tape featuring the former model and the rapper surfaced in January 2017, with both parties blaming each other for its unintended release.
"I have a business. I have a lot to lose doing that. I’m trying to act,” Skyy revealed to Hollywood Life, publicly denying that she had anything to do with the tape's release. “These type of things follow you. That’s not the route I was trying to go. I transitioned to a vixen to a business woman. And on his end, it’s not really a good image on him either. I don’t condone it on both ends. Whoever did it is trying to play me and trying to downplay me.”
"I was on a plane on my way to Miami and a picture leaked out. And when I landed, the video was out. I called my lawyer before I took off and told him he had to put a stop to this because I was scared. I’m not accusing anybody. All I know is that it got out,” she continued, implying that someone from Fetty Wap's camp leaked the intimate footage.
Later that same year while she and Wap were still technically broken up at the time, Skyy revealed that she was pregnant with the rapper's baby. Consistently shutting down haters who question the paternity of her daughter, Skyy has remained steadfast in her claim that Wap is her daughter Alaiya's father.
Born three months premature, the one-year-old Alaiya recently had to undergo an emergency brain surgery, which was, thankfully, a success.
SHE GOT HER START AS A DANCER

Like many others in the hip-hop A-list dating pool, Skyy got her start as an exotic dancer. "I used to dance when I was back home," said Skyy, who hails from Long Island City. "I kinda know one of [Fetty's] friends and I was dating him...and I left him for [Fetty]." After opening up a spa that has since closed, Skyy pivoted her career aspirations once more and is currently attempting to jumpstart her career as a singer/rapper. Incredibly, Skyy managed to ink a deal with Treyway, the label made famous by controversial rapper Tekashi69.
SHE'S GOT BEEF WITH BLAC CHYNA

As evidenced by the video clip making its rounds on social media, Alexis Skyy has some serious beef with Rob Kardashian's baby momma and ex-fiance Blac Chyna, which is, naturally, the source of her recent headlines. While attending the same event, Skyy and Chyna allegedly exchanged words before escalating their confrontation into a near physical assault. According to Skyy's Instagram Live session captured by The Shade Room, the two were simply sharing a drink together before Chyna flew off the handle and began acting aggressively towards the 24-year-old.
In a now-deleted Instagram post, Skyy then echoed Kardashian's past claims that Chyna is an unstable drug addict.
Shortly after their widely-publicized fight hit social media, Rob Kardashian upped the petty factor by declaring Skyy as his #WCW and even posted a sexy pic of her to his feed with the caption, "I’ve been wanting you for so long."
Raising eyebrows further, both Skyy and Kardashian then hopped on social media to show off their at-home dinner date spent lounging around Kris Jenner's kitchen.
Ready and willing to come for the haters who immediately dismissed their social media love-fest as little more than a publicity grab, Skyy immediately shut down Chyna's current ex-boyfriend Kid Buu after he implied that she was just linking up with Kardashian for clout. Buu has since devolved from Chyna's boy-toy to a single man, and with that, he's seemingly set his sights on, you guessed it, Alexis Skyy. Now that you're all caught up with the Alexis Skyy drama, keep your eyes peeled, because undoubtedly, we're about to see this get even deeper.
