The 31-year-old model has revealed that some of her relatives missed seeing her tie the knot with Wiz Khalifa in 2013 because they felt like their race was “more superior” to his.
She shared: “With my family, they feel like they’re more superior or better than an African American because we’re Creole and we have culture and that’s something I battle with most of my life. It’s more of the older people in my family.”
Amber – who has 22-month-old Sebastian Taylor Thomaz with the 27-year-old rapper – has admitted that she is “angry” about the couple, who have since filed for divorce, having their wedding snubbed by some of her relatives.
Speaking on an episode of ‘Light Girls’, she added: “It’s such a sensitive subject that it’s hard to explain yourself without sounding mean or bitter or angry, but I am.
“I’m angry that my family is like that and they want to pass so bad that they raise my mom and my uncles and my aunts to not fully know their culture.
“Our younger generation, we’ve embraced it so much and I feel like that’s why my father is white.”
