Quincy Jones, 85, Brags About His 25 Year Old Model Daughter Most Never Knew He Had
Just when you thought you knew everything about the musical genius who tells his business (and everybody else’s) at will, lo and behold, you find out that you still don’t know everything there is to know about the brotha.
For starters, who knew Quincy Jones had a 25 year old daughter? Secondly, who knew his baby girl was out here making a name for herself and stackin’ major money while at? Thirdly…well, this isn’t a question, but rather a realization: Our man Quincy was STILL making babies at 65 years young! Wow. Anywho, see why Quincy’s bragging about his daughter below *scroll down to check out his daughter*…
Jones Overjoyed By Daughter’s Success
Quincy’s daughter is a 25 year old model, whose birth name is Kenya Julia Miambi Sarah Jones, but she goes by name, Kenya Kinski-Jones, in the modeling world.
As her popularity continues to grow, her pops couldn’t be more proud. That’s why on June 15, he tweeted about Kenya’s success and her latest People Magazine interview:
QJ: “I’m so proud of my rugrats…man, I can’t even begin to tell y’awl! I still can’t believe this is my youngest!! 😶 All grown up…Love you always, my popsicle. My Kenya!!”
Needless to say, after he tweeted a pic of her, many were like, ‘Who dat Quincy?’ and understandably so, being that for decades most of us only knew about his son, Quincy III, and two famous daughters, Kidada and Rashida. Turns out Q has 7 kids, but Kenya is the youngest. Check her out below…
Meet Quincy’s 25 Year Old Model Daughter
Meet Kenya Kinski-Jones. She is making a name for herself in the modeling world. She’s modeled for high fashion brands, such as Chanel and Stella McCartney, as well as popular Instagram fashion retailers, including her latest gig as a feature model for Nasty Gal clothing. Kenya’s also done print modeling for publications, like Vogue Spain.
Kenya has been puttin’ in work to build a name of her own, outside of her dad’s and actress sister, Rashida’s. However, I’m pretty sure it doesn’t hurt to have a a dad with major connects and celebs ranging from Oprah to Paul McCartney probably on speed dial.
Who’s Her Mom?
In case you’re wondering what young tender-roni popped out Quincy’s baby after he’d officially become a senior citizen? That would be his ex-girlfriend Nastassja Kinski, who also happens to be a very popular Golden Globe winning German actress and model. She’s starred in over 40 German movies and has been in the entertainment game since she was a teen.
Now 57, Nastassja was 32 years old and Quincy was 65 at the time of their daughter, Kenya’s, birth in 1993. The lovebirds lived together from 1992 to 1995
As we all know, Quincy has a type- young and preferabbly non African American…at least from what his dating/marriage history has shown. So it comes as no surprise that he hooked up with Kenya’s young mother at that time.
Let’s not forget we’re talking about the same music legend who admitted in a January 2018 Vulture interview, that he only dates younger women and refuses to date women his age. He also confessed that his daughters had to put a limit to how young he could go now:
“Well, my daughters gave me new numbers, because they kept saying, ‘Dad, you can’t go out with girls younger than us,’” he said. “I said, ‘Y’all are not young anymore…’ So the new numbers are 28 to 42. They gave them to me.”
Lawd today…gotta luv Quincy Jones, I tell ya.’
