Kortni Gilson is a 24-year-old model, actress and reality TV star, who is well known for her performance on “Floribama Shore.” During the filming of the show she got drunk, and then peed on her co-star Candance’s bed; this incident earned her the nickname “Krazy Kortni.” She has an image of a crazy party girl for more reasons than one, as you’re about to read.
Early life and education
Kortni Gilson was born on 20 July 1995, in Hawaii, USA, but at the age of three she moved to Panama City Beach, Florida with her family, and grew up in a diverse environment, mingling with people of various ethnicities.
Kortni has a good relationship with her family, and is especially close to her mother so that she’s never actually left home. She’s even chosen jobs that were near her family home, but has been fired from all of them. When the auditions for “Floribama Shore” were held, Gilson was delighted to learn that it was to be filmed in Panama City Beach. This made it easier for Kortni to visit her house, and even during the filming, she frequently called her family.
Gilson attended three high schools, i.e., Bay High School, A. Crawford Mosley High School, and Arnold High School. In 2012 she matriculated from Florida Virtual School and joined the Gulf Coast State College – details regarding her field of education are unknown.
During her high school days Gilson was a cheerleader, no doubt encouraged by her mother, who was a cheerleader coach.
In 2017 a friend told Gilson that Floribama Shore was hosting auditions. Kortni was selected, and her career as a reality TV Star took off. Before this, she worked as a bartender/dancer at the Coyote Ugly. She also appeared on TV in “Good Day Colombia.” Kortni Gilson also did some modeling work for the “Me Clothing Line.” She has also been listed in the prestigious “Reality Star list”, and the Wikifamouspeople’s “popular celeb list.”
Boyfriends and Crush
Kortni Gilson and Logan Fairbank dated for about two weeks, but broke-up on 1 April 2018, after which her ex-boyfriend constantly harassed her, threatening Gilson’s friend/family and even stateing that he would commit suicide if Kortni did not get back together with him. As a result, Gilson filed for a restraining order; however, it did nothing to stop Logan’s advances, who sent his ex-girlfriend various songs, messages, and videos. Eventually Logan was arrested, and Kortni got her freedom back.

During the second season of “Floribama Shore”, Kortni Gilson revealed that she might be pregnant with Logan’s child, which shocked all her housemates, except for Nilsa.
