Chrystale Wilson is an American actress, who is probably still best-known for her role of Ronnie in Ice Cube’s movie “The Players Club” (1998). Even though her mother insisted on her getting a law education, Chrystale was uncompromising in her intention to pursue her acting career. Let’s find out more about her current net worth, relationship status, age, etc.

Early life and family

Chrystale Wilson was born on 28 March 1971, in Atlanta, Georgia USA, so under the sign of Aries, and holding American nationality. Chrystale was the only daughter of her mother, Ethel Cook Wilson, who was a single mom, and brought her up all by herself. Chrystale spent her childhood in Georgia, and saw the hard days they had to overcome with her mother to see a better life.


She also began writing in her childhood, and when she turned six she even created her own book entitled “The Magic Tree” – the plot was close to a fairy-tale, as it was the story of the tree which bloomed golden blossoms and dropped coins when children came and sat under it, giving love and attention to it. Chrystale was supported by her family, and was inspired to do more creative things.

Educational background

Chrystale matriculated from Hiram W. Johnson High School in Atlanta in 1989. Later she studied law in the college, as her mother insisted Chrystale should study something more profitable than acting.

However, her daughter’s teachers noticed her real talents, and advised her to pursue her dream of becoming an actress. Chrystale never mentioned if she graduated from her Sacramento City College or quit it, but she eventually found herself on the set of her first movie.


Successful start

Chrystale debuted in the movie “The Players Club” (1998), which was the debut of Ice Cube as a director, and also featured such actors Jamie Foxx, LisaRaye McCoy and Michael Clarke Duncan among others. Chrystale landed the role of Ronnie, a stripper, who convinced her friend Diana to earn some money in the “The Players Club”; in fact, Ronnie is a negative character, as she gets Diana and her cousin Ebony into trouble all the time the story goes; however, Chrystale’s performance was highly appreciated, and she received  more invitations.

Personal life

From her first years in the entertainment industry, Chrystale was surrounded by rumors about affairs and romances. She was said to be dating Anthony Johnson, her colleague who she shared the screen with in her debut movie “The Players Club”. The audience appreciated the thought that they might be dating not only in the movie, but in the real life too. However, neither Chrystale nor Anthony ever confirmed their relationship.

Chrystale was also rumored to have an affair with a drug dealer, who was eventually caught by the police and imprisoned for several years for his illegal activities. Chrystale never shared any details about this supposed romance either, and no names were even mentioned. As of 2024, she hasn’t announced any update on her current relationship status, keeping her private life low-key, and never posting any pictures of boyfriends on her social media accounts, but isn’t married, and doesn’t have any kids.
