Birth Name: Patricia Kotero

Place of Birth: Santa Monica, California, United States

Date of Birth: August 2, 1959

Ethnicity: Mexican, possibly some German Jewish

Apollonia Kotero is an American singer, actress, model, and talent manager.

Her parents, Maria S. (Torres) and Victor Manuel Kotero, moved from Mexico to the U.S.

A 1984 article in People magazine stated that Appolonia is a “buxom California-born Latin-German Jew,” and she described herself as a “Latin-German Jew” in Rolling Stone the same year. It is not clear where Appolonia’s Jewish ancestry comes from.


Curious about ethnicity

    What??? Baloney on some of this info. First of all her mother has a spanish surname. She looks thru and thru of Spanish ancestry and favors Spanish singer Isabel Pantoja. Also Kotero, comes from Otero or Cortero. https://forebears.io/surnames/otero

    Her mother’s maiden name was Torres. I suspect, but cannot prove, that her parents were Victor M. Kotero and Maria S. Torres who divorced in L.A. in 1973.
