    I think Gladys Stewart is her maternal grandmother.
    She has mentioned that her maternal grandmother is indeed called Gladys

      Actually that woman color is what Igbo were said to have looked like, by the Slavers. The slavers fearing Igbo women and men would group together, purposely mated Igbo women with Yoruba men

    She looks totally different now. Her she looks more African. The makeup, hair and other cosmetic stuff definitely makes her look different today.

    Lighting, makeup and fake hair weaves have alot to do with it. I know in certain lighting, I can look mixed too. Even though im black. Some pics depending on the lighting, I can look half Chinese or half Mexican. Or if I dye my hair black and straighten it , I have been told that I look half East Indian. In dark lighting, I can look West African. In average lighting and with my hair done, I look African American. Most lighting brightens celebrities.
