Acacia Brinley (nee Kersey) has been in the news on Monday, December 21. If you seem to be confused about what and who we are referring to, let us bring you up to speed. We had reported that Nicki Minaj fans had declared war on Acacia. She became famous as a teenager for being Tumblr's poster girl between 2012-2014. She used her fame to become a popular YouTuber as well. Currently, she is an Instagram influencer and mother of three.

The beef seems to have started when Minaj's number was allegedly leaked and she was added to a troll group chat meant to harass celebs. Acacia was also allegedly on that group chat and posted a selfie before signing out. Minaj reposted the selfie through her Twitter account in a doxing attempt because she thought Acacia was the one who had leaked her number.

Minaj's fans were quick to take up the cause going after Acacia for allegedly spamming the rapper. Later, Acacia, on her Instagram stories, posted her side of the narrative. She told her followers that she too had been added to the group chat randomly like Minaj. When she saw all the celeb accounts added to the chat, she thought they were all fake.

So she was "having fun" randomly trolling people on the chat with no idea that one of them was the real Nicki Minaj. She posted the selfie right before signing off with the phrase "Gtg" (Got To Go). She hoped her explanatory video would find its way to Minaj and her fans would stop attacking her. However, currently, she has made her Instagram account private.

For now, Minaj seems to have accepted Acacia explanation and deleted the tweet doxing her from the Twitter feed. But, it is still unknown who really leaked Minaj's number.

Acacia Brinley’s relationships

According to a 2015 article on the website Superfame, Acacia had reportedly dated musician Benn Suede. But they broke up as the website stated that they removed each other’s names from their social media bios. However, at that time neither Suede nor Acacia confirmed anything. Then in the same year, the website reported that Acacia and singer Jairus Kersey were getting a house together. The pair even started a “couple” channel on YouTube titled Acacia and Jairus.

The following year, as reported by The Sun, revealed the happy news in the homemade music video revealed that she was pregnant. She was 18 at that time. The video featured a montage of clips of the pair, ends by panning down Acacia, who is holding a positive pregnancy test over her stomach. Jairus then films himself excitably screaming: “I’m going to be a dad.”

According to the report, Jairus had tweeted his delight at starting a family. He had written: “What a beautiful life I get to live. I'm so proud and overwhelmed with joy to announce that I'll be a dad. This is truly the happiest I’ve ever been. I finally feel like I have a purpose and I can’t wait to start this journey with the perfect girl too.” According to tvovermind.com, the couple later tied the knot. 

These remarks were made by the internet and individual organizations, MEAWW cannot confirm them independently nor does it support these claims being made on the Internet.
