In the era of numerous reality shows, new celebrities appear every day. You may think Mariah Lynn is one of them, but this versatile young girl is not just another instant TV star. Apart from being one of the most attractive participants of the VH1 reality show “Love & Hip Hop: New York,” she is a rapper and songwriter.
A controversial young artist whose real name is Mariahlynn Araujo, she born on 7th July 1990 in Jersey City, New Jersey, USA, but she spent most of her childhood in Newark. She is the eldest of Tasha’s and Raphael’s three children, and has one more sibling from her mother’s side, a baby sister Icelynn.
Mariah Lynn has American citizenship – she declares as half Puerto-Rican and half Italian. She had a tough period growing up since she lived in several foster homes, as her parents had drug and law issues, and weren’t able to take care of her and her siblings. So she started to earn at an early age.
Mariah Lynn before Fame
Mariah Lynn admitted she had to deal with a number of challenges while growing up. She worked as a go-go dancer and stripper to help her poor family finances. The problematic childhood and lack of money prevented her from doing what she likes, and that is rapping and songwriting. Nevertheless, thanks to her persistence, Mariah Lynn finally made it.
In 2015, this young rapper finally had her dreams come true. Both songs released that year have become hits, with a high number of video views on YouTube. The first was “Once Upon a Time,” on which she collaborated with DJ Self, who helped her a lot at the very beginning of her rapping career. The next was “Money Gun,” which quickly got into the YouTube trending category. DJ Self recognized her great potential and offered her a long-term contract with his record label GWinin Entertainment, but she declined, however, they continued their cooperation through following projects, and privately became good friends.
“Love & Hip Hop: New York” as a Career Springboard
The reason for turning this tempting offer down was the entry into the sixth season of the VH1 reality show “Love and Hip Hop: New York,” at the beginning of 2016. Seen as really refreshing, Mariah Lynn soon became one of the most noticed participants, thanks to her personality, and dynamic love life.
In season seven of “Love and Hip Hop: New York,” Mariah Lynn accepted a contract with DJ Self, which brought an additional plot to this show. She had numerous conflicts with other participants, and her record label “colleague” Major Galore.
During her appearance in this reality show, Marian Lynn began collaborating with Dr. Miami, Adam Barta, and Reina on the project “Peep Me Tonight” – she was a feature voice in this song released in 2018.
Net Worth and Salary
Before Mariah Lynn joined the “Love & Hip Hop: New York” crew, her net worth was only $ 150,000 in 2015. However, starting from 2016, her net worth has grown, and is estimated by sources at over $1 million in early 2018 This amount will surely go up, as Mariah Lynn becomes a very sought-after celebrity, with income from reality TV as a part of the major cast for three years, then from rapping and writing songs.
Mariah Lynn has a pretty exciting love life. Cisco Rosado and Rich Dollas, also cast members of “Love and Hip Hop: New York,” were part of her love life and a love triangle (or square, as Diamond Strawberry was her official boyfriend when she was on and off with Rich and met Cisco).
Fans declared this was the highlight of the season, as Rich and Cisco were good friends. Rich Dollas claimed he was never emotionally involved with any member of the reality show, including Mariah Lynn, using social networks to send this statement viral.
In November 2017, it seemed that Mariah Lynn had finally settled down with the singer James R. Unfortunately, she found out that her loved one had feelings for another “Love & Hip Hop: New York” crew member, Sophia Body; he cheated on Mariah Lynn while making a video for one of his songs.
Nor on the family side is all rainbows and butterflies for Mariah Lynn. As her mom has a problem with the law again, the young artist tries to fight for custody of her youngest sister Icelynn, who is only 4; she already takes care of her other sister Victoria, brother Denny, and a nephew.

Mariah Lynn Body Measurements, Personality, and Plastic Surgeries
With her height of 5 ‘1 1/2 “(1.68m) and an ideal weight of about 117lbs (53kg), blue-eyed Mariah Lynn is regarded as one of the most attractive participants in “Love & Hip Hop: New York.” She likes to be unique and extraordinary, so she often changes her look, usually hair color and style.
Given that she is part of the reality show, the public has an insight into every part of her life. It is known that Mariah Lynn publicly agreed on a breast augmentation operation because of her insecurity, which Dr. Miami did months before their co-operation, but she neglected that she had put implants in her buttocks.
Did Mariah Lynn Have Problem with Nicki Minaj?
A few months ago, Mariah Lynn accused Nicki Minaj fans of beating up her mom on the street. Given that there is no concrete evidence that Brabz (Nicki’s fandom official name) did this, maybe the young rapper just wanted to support her former reality “colleague,” Cardi B, who had already had a clash with Nicki Minaj because of the aggressiveness of her fans.
