So today, let’s talk about her. Have a look at the career, personal life and the net worth of Mimi Faust.
Reportedly born in 1970 as Oluremi James, Mimi Faust is an American TV personality and business lady. Being Scientologist in a church, her mother deserted her when she was only 13 years old.

It’s only after meeting him she changed her name and took up her father’s surname ‘Faust’ behind her name. Her hometown is Newport News, Virginia but there is no information about her current city, childhood education, and early life.
Though Mimi never got married but as a celebrity, whatever she is today is just because of her personal life. When she was running slow in popularity and earning, she anonymously released some of her private videos featuring Mimi and her then-boyfriend Londell Smith in 2014. At first, the couple said that the video was stolen and misused but afterward they admitted that it was released intentionally.
Before this, she was into the serious the relationship with Grammy Award Winner musician Stevie J from 1997 to 2012. She has one child named Eva Giselle Jordan with him. In 2012 itself, she started dating Nikko Smith and remained with him for next two years. Right now, she is believed to be single. Not to forget, the exotic beauty was also handcuffed in 2009 for an ugly abusive fight with her boyfriend.

In the video, she shared the screen with some big names of industry such as Lauren London and Jay-Z. This featured video gave her a quick limelight.
However, her quick limelight disappeared even quicker than she achieved it. When she couldn’t make big in film industry, she stepped into business ventures and founded a cleaning company named ‘Keep it Clean INC’. Here, she had good luck. She is running it successfully even today. In 2012, she made her comeback in the film industry and bagged a role in TV show ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’.
It was actually her then-boyfriend Stevie J who helped her to secure this role but unfortunately, their professional life’s success misbalanced their personal life and couple broke up the same year itself. This show is still going on and apart from this, Mimi has also been featured in some movies.
