Lira Mercer was born on August 31, 1993, in Houston, Texas, to African-American parents. Her mother, Michele, or Momma Galore according to her Instagram profile, is an entrepreneur who is the owner and CEO of Wine Fine Forever. Her father, Terrence, abandoned her when she was a child.
She opened up about her early years in an interview with life coach and relationship expert, Iyanla Vanzant, on the reality television show Iyanla: Fix My Life. She mentioned that both her parents were very young when she was born and her father was not mature enough to handle the responsibility of being a parent.
While he later got married to a white woman and had kids, he never came to visit her first child despite the fact that he lived close by. This emptiness eventually led her to become involved in relationships early on in her teenage years, which resulted in pregnancy when she was only 14 years old. While she blames her father for her early hectic lifestyle, she stated on the show that she would try to forgive him.
At various points in her life, Lira Mercer has been linked to Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Wale, Meek Mill, and even Justin Bieber. However, her past as an exotic dancer came back to haunt her after she got engaged to Rick Ross in September 2015.
Wendy Williams, a popular gossip television show host, stated that Mercer is not "wife material", citing her past profession and her hunger for attention. Incidentally, Ross broke off the engagement within two months. Blaming an old picture of her with Meek Mill for their split, she said that Ross had changed since they started dating, and also added that he was doing "sneaky things behind my back".
