Vada Wamwene Mescudi is the daughter of celebrity Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi, better known as Kid Cudi. Mescudi’s father was a rapper and an actor. He is widely acknowledged as influencing several contemporary hip-hop and alternative music acts.
Although Kid Cudi might appear to the general public as a grey personality, he has never tried less to become the absolute best father to his children.
However, Cudi has a proven track record and this has had some impact on Wada; for one thing, she often had to live in two different homes and families. You know, to what extent is she involved in her father’s musical activities or does she live entirely with her mother?
What Does Vada Wamwene Mescudi Mean?
Mescudi was born on 26 March 2010. Her name is a mix of Germanic and Kenyan, Vada in the former meaning a famous ruler, while Wamwene in the latter culture (pronounced Wom Win Aye) means a little girl belonging to special people. On her father’s side, Meskudi is of African-American and Mexican descent.
The paternal grandmother, Elsie Harriet Mescudi (née Banks), is a school choir teacher at Roxborough High School in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. Her grandfather, Lindbergh Steele Mescudi, was a house painter, a substitute teacher, and an Air Force veteran of World War II.
One Of Vada Wamwene Mescudi’s Father’s Shoes Is Named After Her
In December 2020, Adidas launched space-themed sneakers in collaboration with Mescudi’s father, Cudi. The shoes, called Vadawam 326, are a nice tribute to none other than Vada.
Each Vadawam shoe bears the number 326, which the Pursuit of Happiness rapper has also painted in ink on his neck. The numbers probably represent Vadawene’s date of birth, 26 March. The shoes are constructed in the high upper 90s with decorative edge straps, and smooth leather upper. Additionally, stability is provided by a torsion bar in the midsole. At the time of release, the shoes were available in two colors: black/grey/pink and white/etc tint/yellow.
Vada’s Vada Wamwene Mescudi Father Lost Her Custody
In September 2016, Mescudi’s father, Cudi, lost a bitter court battle with the mother of his children over custody of their daughter. Scott agreed to give full custody of the child to the mother. He conceded after a year-long fight for joint custody.
Cudi claimed that he bought the property in Chicago so that he could be close to his two-year-old daughter. And even provided generous child support for the mother. However, in documents obtained by TMZ, Cudi’s ex-partner Jacqueline Munyasi claimed that he only gave her “sporadic and inconsistent” amounts of money. Mescudi’s mother also accused the rapper of being an absentee father. In addition, she complained about Cudi’s violent tendencies and “prolonged and consistent use of drugs and alcohol”.
The two parties eventually reached an agreement and Cudi’s mother now has full custody. Cudi, in turn, obtained visitation rights and the obligation to pay child support. The second reason why Meskudi’s father lost custody was that he had reportedly sent 168 threatening text messages to the child’s mother over four days.
What’s more, one of the text messages said: “Hanging out with white people is not what I want either”.
Vada Wamwene Mescudi’s Father Kid Cudi Struggled With Drug Addiction And Mental Health
Vada’s father, Kid Cudi, struggled with his mental demons in the past. In an interview, he revealed that his fame, and the unspoken expectations from his fans and the music industry suppressed his psychological being.
Vada Wamwene Mescudi father also admitted that he used cocaine to cope with his “emotional breakdown”. This was mainly after failures in several relationships. However, Cudi is now clean from drugs and has been so since 2016.
Scott also tweeted an apology to his previous girlfriends in 2019 for not treating them properly.
Vada’s Father, Kid Cudi Relationship History; Does Mescudi Have Any Siblings From Those Affairs?
People started to take an increased interest in Kid Cudi’s personal life in 2009; the year he started dating entertainment lawyer Jamie Barat. However, in the following years, their relationship was tumultuous. When things were going well between the two, Mescudi’s rapper father even wrote the song “Teleport 2 Me, Jamie” for his alternative rock album “WZRD”. However, in 2012, the two parted ways.
Afterward, the singer started an affair with actress Stella May, who is best known for her work on the Syfy series “The Magicians”. Although the couple has never spoken publicly about their relationship, they were quite close at the premiere of the 2012 film Red 2.
Then it was Vada’s mother, Jacqueline Munyashy, who brought romance into the life of the frequent singer. Of all the other partner’s Kid had met, this seemed to be “it”. And this was the only romantic partnership that gave Kid a family. However, Munsaya and Kidd’s relationship eventually fell apart and the couple broke up sometime in the mid-2010s.
After Vada Wamwene Mescudi’s mum, the former Billboard number three began dating costume designer and actress Raquel Derian. This relationship even inspired Cudi’s film Man on the Moon III: The Chosen One.
It is unclear, however, whether they are seriously smitten with each other or just a dream pairing; given that it has been quite some time since they last appeared side by side.
Vada Wamwene Mescudi’s Father Bought A $ 7.7 million Mansion! Is This To Win The Custody Of His Daughter?
In July 2021, Mescudi’s dad spent a whopping $7.7 million to buy an 11.5-acre estate in a small and prestigious, albeit little-known gated enclave in Calabasas, California. The property is located in an increasingly popular and affluent suburb on the western edge of Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley.
The 9,000-square-metre Mediterranean-style mansion has half a dozen bedrooms and eight bathrooms. While this is all well and good and suggests that Cudi is doing extremely well financially, some believe that buying the house could be his ploy to get the upper hand over his daughter’s custody. In addition, there hasn’t been much of an update on the percentage of custody Cudi has over Wada since he lost his lawsuit in 2016.
On the other hand, some argue that the All In rapper might not have that much of a problem gaining access to his now 11-year-old daughter, especially with how comfortable he might be with his $16 million net worth.
She Promoted Eminem And Her Father’s Collab
Cudi’s daughter Mescudi was the first to announce the partnership between her father and Slim Shady in July 2020. A few days before the release of The Adventures of Moon Man & Slim Shady, Wada took to her father’s Twitter and said: “Hi! It’s Vada, I’m here to announce that my dad’s new single “The Adventures of Moon Man and Slim Shady” will be released on Friday! Check it out!”
Previously, Cudi himself had shared a vague tweet asking for help from “rap god” Eminem.
