    From I can find about Candice’s parents, their names are Arianna Jackson and Paul Patton not Patricia Jones and Ronald Patton.

    Most, if not all, biography pages I find about Candice say that Arianna Jackson and Paul Patton are her parents and that she also has a brother named Adrian Patton.

      Well, those are wrong.

        And what makes you say that? There’s no way so far to tell that Ronald Patton and Patricia Jones are her parent names.

        Meanwhile, when you type Arianna Jackson and Paul Patton into Google and go to images; you find a picture of Candice with her father when she was little and a picture of her with her mother when she was little. And they’re attached to biography websites. But if you also go to her Instagram, you can find the same pictures if you scroll down for enough.

        But when you search Patricia Jones and Ronald patton, all you get are promo-like pictures of Candice.

        I say pictures of her with her parents when she was little means it’s more than likely Arianna Jackson and Paul Patton are her father’s name than Patricia Jones and Ronald Patton.

          Um, let’s start with the fact her brother’s name is Nicholas, and you can check that for yourself because she follows him on instagram.

          Second, I found Patricia’s facebook page, and it’s the same woman that Christina posts on her instagram. What are the sources for Arianna Jackson and Paul Patton other than someone’s head? Do these people even exist?
