Who are Ice Spice’s siblings?
Ice Spice has five younger siblings making her the youngest child. Her 16-year-old brother Joey Gatson is a local legend himself.
He is a popular junior quarterback at Iona Prep in New Rochelle, N.Y., and has recently been signed to Next Models.
When asked by GQ Sports if he enjoys being known as Ice Spice’s little brother he said: “I don’t mind, but everyone still knows me as Joey Gaston."
He added: "At school and all of that, I made my own name. They know me as the quarterback. I don’t go around the halls with people being like, 'What’s good Ice Spice’s little brother!' They always call me Joey.”
Who are Cardi B’s siblings?
Cardi B has one full sibling, Hennessy Carolina, along with two half-sisters — Maciel Almanzar and Nicauly Villalona —and five half-brothers from her father’s previous marriage.
We do know that one of her half-brothers is named Fernando Almanzar but the rest of Cardi B's half-siblings seem to stay out of the spotlight.
Hennesy Carolina is Cardi B’s younger sister who is an influencer and star in her own right. She rose to fame alongside her sister on Love And Hip Hop: New York.
She is a doting aunt to Cardi B’s children who studies fashion design and also has her own clothing line.
Even though the siblings give each other space to shine, Cardi B is still very protective of her younger sister. She explains to Fuse: "We are very protective of each other."
"When people talk about me it’s like okay, I get mad. But when people talk about my sister I literally lose my mind, and that's the same way with her," the rapper added.
