Who is Imani Cheadle?

Imani Cheadle was born in Los Angeles, California USA, in 1997 – she hasn’t shared her exact date of birth, but her zodiac sign is believed to be Aries, and she holds American nationality. She’s a TV personality and a model, but who’s probably only known for being the daughter of the famous American actor Donald Frank Cheadle Jr.

Early life and education

Imani was raised alongside her older sister Ayana (born in 1995) in Los Angeles, by their father, and their mother Bridgid Coulter, who’s a popular American actress, film producer and musician.

Imani became interested in both acting and modelling at a very early age; acting because of her parents’ careers, and modelling because her friends and family kept telling her how beautiful she was, and that she could become a model if she wanted to.

She studied at a local high school, and was a member of its drama club, appearing in nearly all the plays performed at the school, while Imani was also into dancing and playing volleyball.

Upon matriculating in 2015, she enrolled at college, from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2019.

Imani’s career

Imani is keeping the details of her career away from the media’s attention, and it’s only known that she appeared in the 2013 episode “1980’s: “H8DES”” of the short historical documentary mini-series “Vanity Fair: Decades”. It’s been airing since 2013, stars Donzaleigh Abernathy, Sally Aguilar and Judd Apatow, and follows award-winning directors who are examining each decade since the existence of the magazine “Vanity Fair”.


Love life and husband

Imani is highly secretive when it comes to her love life, and hasn’t spoken of any boys (or girls) whom she might have been with; this is one of the reasons why there are various rumors circulating the internet, concerning her relationship status, and her sexual orientation.

Some of her fans believe her to be lesbian, claiming that Imani hasn’t spoken of the boys whom she has perhaps been with because of this; one of her father’s fans has even claimed to have seen her kissing a female friend at a party, but no evidence has been provided to support these claims, nor has Imani commented on these rumors.

There are also those who believe that she’s today in a relationship with a non-celebrity American boy, but prefers to keep him away from media; this hasn’t been confirmed either.

As of December 2021, Imani seems to be unattached, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.

Hobbies and other interests

Imani is physically highly active, and has multiple training sessions at the gym every week, thus her slim figure; she’s also following a strict diet, and it’s said that she’s a vegetarian.

She’s a fashionista, as she’s trying to keep up with the latest fashion trends, so she’s also a shopaholic, as Imani goes shopping for clothes multiple times every week.

She’s a lover of animals, with her favorites being dogs and dolphins; Imani has been to a couple of zoos around the US with her parents.


She likes to watch movies late at night, and her favorite actor and actress are Brad Pitt and Emma Watson, while a couple of her favorite films include “Meet Joe Black”, “Mr. and Mrs Smith” and the franchise “Harry Potter”.

Age, height and net worth

Imani’s age is 24. She has long curly brown hair and brown eyes, her height is 5ft 5ins (1.65m) and she weighs around 120lbs (55kgs).
