Valerie is of German descent. She has a tattoo that says “Jetzt und immer die Segen von der Vater” which means “the blessing from the Father now and forever” and “und bleibst Unschuldig bis Er kommt” which means “and remain innocent until He comes.” It’s in German script.

She mentions her surname is German.

Correction: She’s Austrian. She mentioned it in the interview on the website thesnapper. Isn’t it obvious she’s Austrian like Hitler and Schwarzenegger?
