Used to be a stripper when she was 15 years old, Amber Rose, who was born Amber Levonchuck on October 21, 1983, was able to break into Hollywood entertainment business by first posing for a Louis Vuitton print advertisement. In 2007, she made her screen debut in an episode of Discovery Channel's "A Haunting". The following year, she was signed to make a cameo in the music video for Ludacris' "What Them Girls Like" and immediately captured the attention of Kanye West. They began dating and she was soon catapulted to stardom and often appeared in public events alongside the rapper.
By the year 2009, she walked the runway at New York Fashion Week, modeling for Celestino. She, moreover, also made cameos in the music videos for Young Jeezy's "Vacation", Nicki Minaj's "Massive Attack", Fabolous' "You Be Killin' Em", and Wiz Khalifa's "No Sleep". In line with her high rising profile, she snatched a part in Russell Simmons' reality show, "Running Russell Simmons". 2010 saw her separation from West, whom she accused of cheating on her with Kim Kardashian.
In 2011, Rose was billed as a guest judge on Season 3 of RuPaul's "Drag Race" and a judge on Season 2 of "Master of the Mix". In the same year, she was signed by Smirnoff to be its spokesperson and starred in both TV ads and billboards for the company's new flavors Whipped Cream and Fluffed Marshmallow. Persistently wanting to have her own singing career, she released her first single "Fame" in January 2012 and the second one "Loaded" the next month. Following her separation from West, Rose began dating Wiz Khalifa in early 2011, got engaged to him in March 2012, and wed him in July 2013. The couple's first child, son Sebastian Taylor Thomaz, was born on February 21, 2013.
