Claudette has Puerto Rican ancestry; she grew up in her hometown, and while in high school, she met and befriended other future members of City High, Ryan Toby and Robbie Pardlo, however, the trio existed for a couple of years only, from 2001 until 2003. They released their debut album in 2001, entitled “City High”, which reached No. 34 on the US Billboard 200 chart and No. 23 on the US R&B chart, while achieving gold status, which only increased Claudette`s net worth.

Following the disbandment of the group, Claudette started pursuing a solo career, and in 2006 came out her debut release as a solo artist, the single entitled “Can`t Get Enough”, which also featured musician Mase. The single reached No. 37 on the US R&B chart, while it also landed at No. 89 on the US Billboard chart. Before that, she collaborated with Wyclef Jean on his track “Dance Like This”, which was used for the “Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights” soundtrack. She took a step further and started working on her debut album, however, it still remains unreleased, although she has worked with such musicians as Pharrell Williams, Will.i.am, Jerry Duplessis “Wonda” and others.

Instead, Claudette focused on a career on television; firstly, she was selected in the cast for the first season of the show “R&B Divas: Los Angeles” (2013-2014), alongside Kelly Price, Chante Moore, Lil` Mo and Dawn Robinson. Since 2014 she has been featured in the TV series “If Loving You Is Wrong”, created by Tyler Perry, and in 2015 she appeared in the play “Madea on the Run” (2015), increasing her net worth by a large margin.

Regarding her personal life, Claudette was in a relationship with colleague Robby Pardlo from City High, through her high school. After their relationship ended, she started dating other the other member Ryan Toby; the two married in 2004, but their marriage lasted only for three years, as they divorced in 2007, after the couple had two sons together. Also, Claudette has a daughter from one of her previous relationships, the father she describes as ‘a normal businessman’.
