She was 10 years old when 9/11 happened. Muslim girls starts wearing hijab (the ones who follow this custom) at 13-14 or even later, or never, there must be something wrong in the description

The story is probably as fake as her freckles.

Well I don’t pretend to know the age range for girls to wear hijabs.However there’s an Ethiopian church by the grocery store I go to, their Muslims an all the littles girls are wearing those hijabs. Even if you google little wearing hijabs, you see plenty of pics:

So maybe she’s telling the truth

I know this isn’t a gossip site, but she lied about her freckles, she lied about her degree, she lied about her hair being natural, i honestly wouldn’t be too surprised if she lied about this, because she seems like a patological liar. Like, it’s not necessary, so why lie at all?

why do you think her hair isn’t natural? it looks real I that photo

I don’t think anything. It’s the black women of the internet that spotted her leave out in some of the photos. I’d say they know more about that stuff than me or you. But it was hillarious that she made a video about her natural hair regimen while not actually showing her natural hair. Ugh, I need to get off of ONTD.

@bablah I am a black woman and her hair in the pic looks real. I believe her natural hair is long and thick. Some black women will call anything a weave out of jealousy.
