Who is Danielle Alexis? Truth about rumors of Lamar Odom dating trans actress
Danielle Alexis is the first transgender Australian actress to secure a contract to work in Hollywood
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Lamar Odom, former NBA star and Khloe Kardashian's ex, has recently made headlines because of his alleged dating rumors with transgender actress Danielle Alexis. The rumors started after Danielle posted a selfie with the former basketball player with a touching caption that read, "One of the most beautiful humans I’ve met 🐑 💕".
She posted another close-up shot with the former NBA star with the caption, “It’s always blessings from us 🙏🏽❤️ Lamar says hi this morning to everyone too.” Even with all these posts, both the stars have remained silent regarding their relationship.
So who is Danielle Alexis?
Alexis was born in Australia. She is the first transgender Australian actress to secure a contract to work in Hollywood. Her first international Netflix series, ‘Wentworth,’ helped her become well-known. She immediately emerged as the leading figure in the LGBTQ community once the series was shown and people learned of her gender. She has a valid acting visa and is now residing in the US. She stated in an interview with 7 News Australia that she experienced a lot of bullying and discrimination because of her identity starting in her early years. Danielle, her mother, and her older sister Ashton relocated to Perth after her parents separated.
Later, she admitted in the interview that she first began experiencing identity crises at the age of five. She revealed to her parents that she was a girl or that she wanted to act like a girl. However, in the beginning, her parents didn't care to think about it and simply assumed that their young son was simply copying his elder sister. However, she continued to feel the same. She made the decision to change her gender at the age of 19 after graduating from high school. Danielle attributes her motivation to go through the transition to her mother and a few of her female friends.
She claimed that making the move was not an easy feat. In the same interview, she claimed that after a lifetime of mistreatment and criticism, her family and friends were essential in shaping her into the woman she is today. Like her older sister, Ashton, Danielle's mother also encouraged her to pursue creative endeavors. “I got into drama and excelled in that, I knew that I wanted to go on the stage, or tv and film and express my creativity,” she said. However, she was unable to pursue acting as a career before fully completing her sex change.
Is Lamar really dating Danielle?
People are speculating about Lamar’s new girlfriend as he recently broke up with her ex Khloe Kardashian. One person wrote in the comment section of the post, "Is that who I think it is?" "You guys are amazing together! 🔥🔥🔥," another added. Someone wrote, "Two beautiful humans ❤️😍" "Dang Lamar... I never would've thought...but if this is what you're into..but he does seem to have a good heart....." yet another user remarked. However, according to a report posted in All Hip Hop, Lamar is a heterosexual. Moreover, as both the celebrities are yet to make official statements about the relationship, it is still early to comment on their relationship.
