Rick Ross

Powered by imdb

Rapper Rick Ross, born William Leonard Roberts, is from the Carol City section of Miami. In 2013, Ross won a lawsuit filed against him by drug kingpin "Freeway" Ricky Ross who had claimed the rapper stole his identity. The judge ruled the rapper’s stage name was protected speech. Aside from music, he’s invested in Wingstop and Checkers fast food franchises and promotes Luc Balaire rosé. After experiencing a health scare involving seizures, Ross committed himself to losing weight by changing his eating habits and doing Crossfit. In June 2015, Ross was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service in Fayette County, Georgia for kidnapping, aggravated assault, and aggravated battery charges for a confrontation involving a man working on his home. He was accused of pistol-whipping and kidnapping. A couple of weeks prior, he was busted for misdemeanor possession of marijuana. Before he was famous, Ross had been a corrections officer. He was engaged to Lira Galore for two months in 2015. Ross had a daughter with Briana Camille in September 2017, although he is linked romantically to Twitter exec Liz Hagelthorn. He has two other children, Toie Roberts and William Roberts III, from a previous relationship.
