    To daitoushoutou – I don’t think any of those are her real myspace page. I think that was a fake myspace that copied an (incorrect) then-version of her Wikipedia article.

    Jessica did write several years ago on her Myspace page, which I quoted in my YouTube video uploaded on November 6, 2012, “Nikkeijin Celebrities of Mixed/Part/Hapa/Half Japanese Descent ハーフ芸能人・日系人 “:

    “My names Jessica Sutta. I was born in Miami, Florida, of Irish-Japanese Catholic and Russian-Polish Jewish heritage, and started dance classes at the age of three.”

    Sadly, that post of hers no longer exists on her Myspace page at:

    That page on The Wayback Machine, unfortunately, goes only back to July 17, 2013 – on and after that date that particular post and her other older posts on her Myspace page have been deleted:*/

    Fortunately, Google (and Bing and Yahoo) have previews, but not caches, of Jessica Sutta writing on Myspace several years ago at about her “Irish-Japanese Catholic and Russian-Polish Jewish heritage” – the most complete being the Google version at:
