Chrissy is of African-American and Cuban origin, and had a rather difficult childhood as her parents were drug addicts and because of that the girl was mainly raised by her grandmother. Chrissy was known for her adventures with notorious “bad guys” of the area, even some known criminals such as Alpo Martinez and Rich Porter, among others. Probably her most famous partner was rapper Jay-Z with whom Chrissy had sexual relations 20 years ago when she was 23 years old. But all affairs ended when she met rapper Jim Jones. They have been together for years now and currently are engaged.
With the help of her boyfriend Jim Jones, Chrissy began her career as a designer when she realized her passion for design by creating costumes for Jim as well as putting her hand on his record studio. This led Chrissy Lampkin to becoming a successful interior designer, and growing her net worth. However, what turned Chrissy into a well known celebrity was her participation on the show “Love and Hip-Hop”. Of course, she was cast for the show because she was a girlfriend of rapper Jim Jones. Getting on the show was a big success for Chrissy since it became number one rated show on the channel VH1.
Chrissy Lampkin’s net worth began to rise rapidly as she was paid 100.000 dollars for season one and for season two her salary reached 300.000 dollars. Chrissy turned out to be such a hit that in 2012 she was given her own spin-off on the show which focused on the story of Chrissy and Jim Jones. This opportunity happened after Jim Jones finally proposed to his girlfriend and that happened right there on the show.
