Early life, family, educational background
Victoria Rose Waldrip – better known on social media as Woah Vicky or Icky Vicky – was born on 7 March 2000, in Hiram, Georgia, USA. Woah Vicky has said she grew up in Zone 6, reputedly a dangerous part of Atlanta, Georgia, but her ex-boyfriend, Papi JJ says that Woah Vicky is from Buckhead, which is a wealthier area of the city. Famous people from Zone 6 include 21 Savage, Future and Gucci Mane.
Woah Vicky’s father is Steve Waldrip, a real estate mogul who builds, restores and renovates homes. Woah Vicky never speaks about her mother, Carla Johnson – her parents never married. Woah Vicky’s sister, Stephanie Waldrip, is more than ten years older than her and currently lives in New York.
Woah Vicky attended Marietta High School but claimed that school was a waste of time, and dropped out with failing grades, but after completing her sophomore year, she moved to homeschooling through Penn Foster High School, a private online distance education high school, from which she eventually matriculated.
Family’s personal life
Woah Vicky’s sister Stephanie, is a fashion designer, signed with Shopbop, and has designed clothing for some celebrities, such as Gigi Hadid and Lady Gaga. Woah Vicky and Stephanie do not get along, allegedly due to the significant difference in age.
On 19 July 2017, Woah Vicky took an Ancestory.com test, and apparently found out that she is 44% African-American. The test propelled her career and popularity, and from August 2017 she began rising in fame. Snoop Dogg, Plies and Chief Keef all reposted her videos on their social media accounts, causing her to gain thousands of new followers. In most of Woah Vicky’s videos, she uses the N-word and has said, ‘I made it out of Zone 6, look at me now.’ Her use of the N-word is controversial because although she claims to be African-American, she is very obviously white, making her usage of the N-word racist. Pretending to be from Zone 6 is also controversial because the people living there are in poverty and struggling, while Woah Vicky grew up living a much more privileged life.
Some of Woah Vicky’s most-watched videos (due to how controversial they are) include, “Summer Time Makeup Tutorial for African-American Women” and “How to Make Your Melanin Glow!”
In 2017, YouTuber RiceGum made a video about Woah Vicky entitled, “This Girl Must Be Stopped”, which gained Woah Vicky 125 000 followers in one day. She responded to the video by releasing a diss track, “Ching Chong,” on her YouTube channel in which she mocked RiceGum’s race and ethnicity with lyrics such as, “Ching Chong, Ching Chong, Ching Chong, bitch.” – YouTube immediately took the video down because it violated their hate speech policy. Woah Vicky made an apology video, in which she mentioned that Asian men are attractive.
In December 2017, Woah Vicky deleted her @woahvicky Instagram account and instead began using her @imwoahvicky handle, which she has had since July 2016. As from 10 May 2019, Woah Vicky surpassed 500,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel.
She has released an iOS app called “Woah Vicky”, a tap game and created by a company run by Josiah Jenkins, who is the brother of one of Woah Vicky’s ex-boyfriends, and has promoted prizes4fun.xyz on her Instagram status. The site is a spam site which promises a free iPhone X, but is actually a click farm and pays her for the traffic generated by her followers.
Woah Vicky released her first music single in 2019 via Soundcloud, and later a trap single entitled, “Money Counter,” which attracted high listenership on WorldStarHipHop.
After matriculating, Woah Vicky got a job at a local food joint, but quit only a few days later because she did not want to be ‘ordered around by anyone.’
She opened her YouTube channel in 2013, but only began posting videos regularly from 2017. Her first video on her channel was “The Lotion Challenge”, in which she and her friends had to eat a spoonful of lotion. Her earliest Instagram photos are from July 2016, and show Woah Vicky taking vacations in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Her account further indicates that she was relatively affluent by the designer clothing she wears, including Gucci accessories and Tommy Hilfiger bikinis. On 5 July 2017, Woah Vicky announced that she was pregnant with her then-boyfriend, Papi JJ’s baby.
Papi JJ denied being the baby’s father, releasing a YouTube video to that effect, and judging by the absence of a pregnancy or a baby, she wasn’t pregnant at all. The very next month, Woah Vicky claimed that her boyfriend was cheating on her with a 14-year-old celebrity.
On 25 February 2018, Woah Vicky was arrested for trespassing Four Seasons Town Centre, allegedly for assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest and kicking an officer. According to Woah Vicky’s arrest forms, she is of white ethnicity. In May 2018, she ran into problems with the law once again, this time due to a video of her threatening DJ Drama and Snoop Dogg while brandishing a weapon. She released another apology video, but Snoop Dogg responded by saying Woah Vicky was using him to gain fame.
Neva had hoop dreams but always knew I was gone ball ?
Woah Vicky has made mention that her favorite dance move is ‘twerking,’ which is considered to be a popular dance move amongst African-American people, and she often twerks in her Instagram videos. She also claims to be ‘thick,’ meaning she has big buttocks. It can be agreed that her buttocks are larger than that of the average white person, however it does not resemble the size of the average black woman’s buttocks. To appear more ‘black,’ Woah Vicky has adopted a stereotypical ‘black’ accent and mannerisms such as rapping. She often uses the N-word online and calls herself the ‘Melanin Queen.’ Woah Vicky receives a lot of hate for her false claims of being black and growing up in Zone 6, but her followers either support her disrespect, or have somehow come to believe her.
Feud with Danielle “Bhad Bhabie” Bregoli
From 2017, Woah Vicky and Danielle “Bhad Bhabie” Bregoli – better known as the ‘Cash Me Outside’ girl – have been feuding, mostly on FaceTime. Woah Vicky has attacked Bhad Bhabie for her drug use, the number of men she has slept with and for her cosmetic surgeries. According to Woah Vicky, the beef with Bhad Bhabie began when Malu Trevejo, an Instagram personality, got into a feud with Woah Vicky before feuding with Bhad Bhabie. Woah Vicky says that their fight started when Malu was trying to get with Woah Vicky’s ‘baby daddy.’ Malu and Bhad Bhabie were friends at the time, so the two apparently threatened to beat Woah Vicky up if she moved to Los Angeles. It is rumored that Bhad Bhabie got upset with Woah Vicky because she was trying to get with Malu’s boyfriend.
On 15 April 2018, a viral video surfaced of Woah Vicky and Bhad Bhabie getting into a fight at The Americana at The Brand in Glendale, California. Rapper and friend of Woah Vicky’s, Lil Tay, was present during the dispute and can be seen and heard in the video. Woah Vicky had apparently been mentioning that she wanted to fight with Bhad Bhabie. During the fight at The Americana, Bhad Bhabie punched Woah Vicky in the back of her head. In October 2019, Woah Vicky and Bhad Bhabie once again fought, this time, in a recording studio, and once again a video of the altercation went viral. Their feud is on-going, and both girls continue to criticize one another publicly.
Although Woah Vicky claims to be 44% African-American from her father’s side, she is yet to produce proof of her Ancestory.com results.

In contradiction to Woah Vicky’s claims, she has naturally straight, blonde hair and pale skin. The only physical characteristic suggesting any relation to an African race is her dark brown eye color. Woah Vicky has an hourglass body shape. Her height is 5ft 4in (1.63m), her weight is 120lbs (54kg), and her vital statistics are 33-27-35; her bra size is 33B, her shoe size US 5. According to her appearance, Woah Vicky’s claims that she may use the N-word and controversial methods of cultural appropriation is not logical. She often styles her hair in cornrows, wears do-rags and a mouth grill in an attempt to look more African-American.
Net worth and salary
Woah Vicky’s estimated net worth is $200,000, earned from paid appearances, social media posts and selling merchandise including hoodies, shirts, phone cases, Zone 6 ski masks, hip-hop chains and other items fitting her brand.
