The 16-year-old Black-ish actress opened up about how her father was one of his personal photographers.
“I have so many memories, but I’d have to say one. When my first movie came out Imagine That, he actually rented a theater so that everybody was able to go see it,” Yara said during an appearance on The Real with co-star Marcus Scribner. “And what’s crazy is they opened up Paisley Park and there’s still a picture of me in his office, which was surreal when I first got that message like I’m still in the office…so that was quite a moment.”
She added, “I mean honestly, he has given my family the ability to do what we want and embrace the fact that we are all a family of creatives…so, we owe a lot to him!”
FYI: Yara is wearing a 3.1 Phillip Lim top, AmenPapa skirt, Ade Samuel Shoes, and Sterling Forever jewels.
