Kimberly Woodruff is most known for being the wife of O’Shea Jackson, better known by his stage name Ice Cube, an American rapper. Since 1992, she has been married to the rapper.
In an age where social media visibility correlates to currency and breach of privacy is a common occurrence, the California native is a master at avoiding the glitz and glam of social life, leaving no record of her existence online.
Learn about Kimberly Woodruff’s age, birth date, and relationship with her spouse Ice Cube, and their children in this article.
Kimberly Woodruff claims to be African-American
Kimberly Woodruff was born on September 23, 1970, in the United States, according to Famous Birthday. In terms of ethnicity, Kim and her husband Ice Cube are both African-Americans.
Since the late 1980s, Kimberly and Ice Cube have been together
Kimberly was in a relationship with another man when she met Ice Cube for the first time. However, she had broken up with her ex-boyfriend six months later, and they began dating in 1988. When she was in college, they met.
The power couple welcomed their first child, O’Shea Jackson Jr., on February 24, 1991, and married just over a year later, on April 26, 1992.
Darrell, their second child, was born in 1993, and Kareem, their daughter, was born in 1994. She had already given birth to their fourth child, Shareef when her first son O’Shea was only five years old.
Deja, a girl, was their fifth child, bringing their total family size to seven. O’Shea, her firstborn, is a rapper who goes by the moniker OMG. He made his acting debut in 2015, portraying his father in the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton, following in his father’s footsteps. He’s since appeared in films including Ingrid Goes West and Den Of Thieves, as well as releasing a mixtape called ‘O’Shea: Jackin’ For Beats.’
O’Shea also adores his mother and frequently dedicates posts to her on his social media accounts. He thanked his mother, Kim, in a tweet on International Women’s Day in March 2018, saying that he would be a knucklehead if it weren’t for her and that he would trust everyone. He also stated that he would not respect hard work, love, or himself if he didn’t have her.
For Years, Kim served as Ice Cube’s backbone
The only thing that has changed between the pair since they married in 1992 is their greying hair and wrinkled skin. Aside from that, love and affection are unchanged.
Her chart-topping hitmaker husband told PEOPLE in March 2017, on their 28th wedding anniversary, “I’m delighted she’s stuck with me all this time and not kicked me out.”
Cube’s remarks are unsurprising, given that the 50-year-old has stood by her husband through thick and thin, whether it was during Cube’s fallout with his rap group N.W.A and everything that followed the group’s disbandment, his movies bombing at the box office, or his fading musical career. Whatever the issue, Ice Cube’s single consistency in his life was Kim. Even though she has a renowned spouse, she chooses to stay out of the spotlight, except red carpets, movie premieres, and her husband’s music releases.
She could have landed several projects in Hollywood if she wanted, but she dislikes being in the spotlight and has so avoided appearing in any Hollywood productions. Her work at home, however, in caring for their children, should not be overlooked. In reality, she has performed admirably in her position.
Aside from that, she was ‘hands-on’ with her husband’s finances as he was churning out one Hollywood blockbuster after another and releasing gold-certified songs. Ice Cube has a net worth of $160 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, as a result of her constant effort at home and as a business associate. She is entitled to half of his net worth, if not more because they have been married for almost 25 years.
Ice Cube Has Reengaged With His Husband
When the famous rapper spilled the beans about his and Kimberley’s re-engagement, after hitting the 20-year milestone together, their love for each other was on display to the public. In a May 2018 interview with Nova’s Fitzy & Wippa, he confessed that on their anniversary, he surprised his wife with a new car and a new ring left on the seats, and asked her to be engaged again.
Kim is at 5 feet 3 inches, while her husband, Ice Cube, stands at 5 feet 8 inches. The duo looks beautiful at their matching heights.
