Alexis Skyy recalls opening a business at 19 but losing it because she was too focused on her relationship with Fetty Wap.
There’s a new business venture on the horizon for Alexis Skyy. The 25-year-old reportedly has plans to open her new storefront, Luxe Beauty Bar, sometime this summer, and she recently chatted with The Shade Room about her forthcoming spa. According to Alexis, in her late teens, she had a similar business that eventually went down the drain because she was more concerned with her relationship with rapper Fetty Wap than taking care of the books.

“I had a salon when I was 19, and honestly I didn’t know anything about having a business. I came straight from the strip club trying to run a spa,” she told the outlet. “And I was so busy running behind Fetty at the time. We were together and I lost focus and the business wasn’t doing well so I had to close it.”
The couple wasn’t able to work through their differences and eventually broke up. Alexis later gave birth to her Alaiya, a daughter that Fetty bounces back and forth as claiming as his own. Meanwhile, Alexis has been making appearances on reality shows lately, and currently, she’s featured on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. There, the social media influencer is taking a step of faith and sharing her story of being a victim of sex trafficking.
