Imani Duckett is the daughter of well-known actress Jasmine Guy, so Imani was destined to be in the spotlight as well. Let’s find out who she is and what she does in her daily life. Spoiler-alert: she is making quite a name for herself these days as well!
Imani Duckett was born in New York City on March 28, 1999. She is the daughter of Jasmine Guy and Terrence Duckett. Her mother works as an actress, singer and producer, while her father’s occupation is as a consultant with Onpaceplus, a health-care provider in the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area of the United States and he formerly worked at Soda & Lime for nine years as the director of strategic partnerships. Imani is of African-American descent.
Imani currently lives with her mother, because her parents filed for divorce owing to irreconcilable disagreements. They got divorced on April 8, 2008, when Imani was nine years old. Her mother has attempted to gain sole custody of her, but her father has fought back valiantly. He has proposed that they share custody of her.
Jasmine acquired legal and physical possession of Imani in court, while Terrence was compelled to pay $1,469 per month in child support. Jasmine filed new court proceedings four years later, accusing her ex-husband of failing to fulfil his parenting responsibilities to Imani. Terrence allegedly stopped paying child support in May 2010 and owes Jasmine $39,663 in retroactive support, according to Jasmine. Not the kind of conflict you’d want to expose your child to, but hey, life happens.
Imani’s maternal grandfather is an African-American pastor who hails from Boston, Massachusetts. Her maternal grandmother is a Cape Verdean White American.
