Early Life & Family

Laticia was born the eldest daughter of Nancy Lee and Al Rolle. She has four siblings who are named Gisemi, Francis, Xavier and Elijah.

Regardless of the age difference between her and her siblings, Laticia has a good and close relationship with them. On an Instagram post she shared several pictures of her two brothers and two sisters – referring to them as the ‘Rolle crew’ – in celebration of the National Sibling Day. She added the caption: ‘I’m forever thankful for my mom + dad for giving me my top 4 for life. The best part of my life, my home’.

Laticia attended Gardner High School and the boarding school Worcester Academy, where she excelled at playing basketball, and subsequently obtained a scholarship to enrol into Eckerd College, located in Florida. She graduated in 2010 with a major in Business Management, and was also part of the university’s basketball team, Eckerd Tritons.

Career

Fashion & Lifestyle Blogger

In 2017 Laticia Rolle started her own lifestyle blog entitled BluHazl, on which she shares tips about a variety of topics such as fashion, recipes, romantic life and even writes about her personal life and experiences she feels will help her readers to deal with their own problems.

On 17 April 2017 Laticia posted the article “Divorce Sucks”, on which she opened up about her parents’ divorce in 2016, and how it deeply affected her: ‘It was one of the hardest struggles my siblings and I have ever endured,’ she commented.

Despite confessing the experience was difficult for her, Laticia offered her readers insight into how she accepted her situation, and helped her siblings. She assured her audience the best way to cope with such difficult moments is to understand that parents have their own struggles, and regardless of their children’s feelings, the decision to separate from each other should be taken based on their own happiness.

Besides putting her own life into words for her blog, Laticia tried to advise her readers on a variety of other subjects. This sets her blog apart from other influencers’, as she tries to positively feed her audience with valuable knowledge.

Although BluHazl is still active on the web, Laticia rarely updates said blog nowadays, as she’s more concentrated on Instagram, on which she shares content with the same positive focus.

Fashion Designer

In early 2018 Laticia Rolle started her journey as a fashion designer, by establishing TRESS, her own brand focused on creating sustainable but fashionable hats for curly-haired women.

The initial idea for TRESS occurred to Laticia before a casual outing in late 2014, when her then boyfriend apparently rushed her to leave the house, and she didn’t have a hat to wear, as she told TheYBF.com.

The success of the brand is due to its originality and functionality, as it responds to a real necessity. Though as Laticia has commented, she not only wanted to give women with voluminous hair something useful to wear, she wanted to create a fashion statement with it: ‘I also knew that I wanted something all women would wear; you know like a little black dress, I wanted a little black hat.’

Laticia’s journey to develop TRESS as a brand started in 2015, but her path to achieve said goal was not easy. She was scammed and lost money several times, until she finally found the right manufacturer.

From then on, the brand simply increased in popularity as it caught the attention of mainstream media due to its pioneering concept, which offered women an alternative to the uncomfortable and non-curl-friendly existent hats. So TRESS has now been featured in magazines such as Allure, Elite Daily and Pop Sugar. The brand also successfully launched a collection with True Religion in February 2020.

Personal Life

Famous Ex-Boyfriend Shaquille O’Neal

Although Laticia Rolle is an accomplished and successful woman in her own right, her relationship with the National Basketball Association (NBA) legend Shaquille O’Neal was what put her under the media spotlight.

Shaquille O’Neal was born on 6 March 1972, in Newark, New Jersey USA. At an early age he moved with his family to Texas, where he started playing basketball at Robert G. Cole High School.

He told SportsCenter that although he was going to concentrate on his family and on his new-born baby from then on, his time as an NBA player was something he would treasure forever: ‘I’m going to miss the competition.

At the time Laticia was dating someone else, however, Shaquille O’Neal disregarded her then-boyfriend opinions’, and asked him not to call Laticia anymore.

After that out-of-the-ordinary first meeting, Laticia and Shaquille officially started a relationship which they managed to keep mostly private, despite attracting taken the attention of the media from the start.

Although both Laticia and Shaquille had their own professions and projects to keep them busy, they managed to find time for each other: ‘If I’m not working, I’m on the road with him, and in one week we can be in three different states,’ she told Telegram in 2017.

Rumors & Split

She is a housewife, but perhaps best known for being the former girlfriend of Randy Moss, a famous American Football player – many people believe her to be Randy’s ex-wife, as they have five children together, however, the two never actually married.

Early life and education

Libby was raised in St. Albans alongside her sisters Angela and Jennifer by their father Frank Montgomery Offutt, who was a businessman and who served as the Chairman of the Board of Christian Education, and their mother Margarette who was a housewife.

Frank also worked for a variety of companies including Monsanto, Goodrich-Gulf Rubber Plant and MTI Engineering among others, and was a basketball coach; he died on 28 November 2012 after undergoing surgery to fix his ‘pure autonomic failure’ degenerative disorder.

Libby attended Saint Albans High School located in West Virginia, where she was among the most popular girls due to her attractive looks, then after her family moved, she attended DuPont High School at which she became physically active as she started playing several sports, while she also became interested in swimming.

She mostly practiced because she wanted to stay fit, planning on becoming a model, however, things changed for her after she started dating Randy Moss.

Upon matriculation in 1993, she decided not to pursue a college degree but to find an ‘ordinary job’ to financially support herself, and later her children.

Love life and relationship with Randy Moss

Libby met Randy while she was attending DuPont High School, and they dated for only several months before Libby became pregnant. Even though she was advised by her friends and family to have an abortion so that she could continue her studies and work on her career, Libby chose to give birth, and she and Randy welcomed their daughter Sydney Nikale Moss on 6 March 1994.

Not many people supported their relationship, because Randy’s black and Libby’s white, and things became even worse after the birth of their daughter. In 1995 when somebody offended Randy, he got into a fight and was sent to prison for three days, which ruined his plans for the future, as he lost his Notre Dame football scholarship.

In 1996, both Randy and Libby were taken to a police station after their neighbors reported domestic violence but neither pressed charges, and they continued to live together with Libby giving birth to their four more kids Senali, Montigo, Thaddeus and Sylee.

Many years later in 2016, Randy talked about how Libby spent a fortune on drugs, and rejected his offer to pay for her rehabilitation program – he also claimed that she no longer cared about their children, which is why he had to abandon football to raise them with Lydia. Libby claimed Randy wasn’t telling the truth, and that he and Lydia didn’t let her see her children.

Sydney has become a basketball player, while Thaddeus is a football player and is today playing for Fighting Tigers (Louisiana State University team).

Drug problems, hobbies and interests

Libby admitted that she had drug issues in the past, but has claimed that she has been clean since 2007, ans her mother Margaret has backed up her claims. According to rumors, she is back to being physically active, and although she isn’t as good as she was before, she occasionally plays soccer and tennis with her friends, and has several training sessions at the gym each week to stay in shape. Her pregnancies have made her somewhat overweight, and although she isn’t trying to get rid of the weight, her training has improved her stamina and made her feel better about herself.

Late at night she likes to watch movies, and some of her favorite actors and actresses are Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Angelina Jolie, while a few of her favorite movies include “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”, “Meet Joe Black” and “Titanic”.
