Kristina Basham is a model and social media influencer who has built a large fan base on Instagram over the years, where she shares images of herself. She is not only a model but also describes herself as a pianist and violinist. She has also been involved in several things outside of Instagram, including volunteering with non-profit organizations.
Because she has achieved so much fame as a social media personality, her love life has not been hidden from the public. Here is everything you need to know about Kristina’s personal and professional life.
Early Life and Background Details of Kristina Basham
Basham’s journey to fame began with her birth in 1988; she was born in San Francisco, California. Kristina was raised by a father of Italian and French descent and a mother of Middle Eastern and German descent.
As she grew up, she suffered from an obsessive-compulsive disorder, but with the help of her parents, she was able to overcome the disease. As a young girl, the Instagram star’s good looks made it easy for her to attract the attention of almost everyone. Thanks to this fact she started her modeling career at the age of 11 when she was discovered by a modeling agency.
However, her first interest in elementary school was in sports. She won a medal in cross-country. Unlike most other social media stars, Kristina Basham is a fully educated woman. She attended the University of California, Berkeley, from where she received a degree in economics. She then went to Berkley Graduate School and earned a Master’s degree in Financial Economics.
How She Rose to Fame As an Instagram Star
After her training, the social media star decided to take a regular job, but it didn’t take too long before she realized that this was not what she wanted to do. She then quit and took her hat off to modeling by signing up with one modeling agency in New York and another one in London.
She got the chance to model for big brands like Balenciaga, Tom Ford, Carolina Herrera, and Tommy Hilfiger. This is all in addition to her work as a brand ambassador for Aston Martin, Disney, Emirates Airlines and Nissan. Still yearning for satisfaction, Kristina Basham left modeling and started a bakery called Le Vasseur Confectionary in the San Francisco Bay Area.
While she continued to be involved in several things at once, she also decided to share her pictures and other things on Instagram. Since June 2016, she has fewer than one million followers on the platform. By January 2020, however, her number of followers on Instagram has grown to over 4.1 million.
She has managed to combine her beauty and business acumen to build her status as an Instagram star and other businesses. As a result, the trained economist and entrepreneur has a fortune estimated at $3 million.
What We Know About Kristina Basham’s Love Life
Kristina Basham may be followed by millions of fans on Instagram, but many things are not known about her. According to various speculations, the young social media star was once married when she was still in college.
The ex-husband’s name and other information about him are not known, but it is known that she had two children by him, Hazel and Marin Hilsabeck.
Unfortunately, she continued to handle many things at once, as well as her role as wife and mother. This took a toll on her and she decided to end the marriage.
Hardly anyone was able to tell anything about her love life until it was discovered in 2016 that she met the American writer and cartoonist Scott Adams, who is credited with the Dilbert comic series. The relationship between them is quite interesting, especially because of the age difference of over 30 years that stands between them. But this doesn’t seem to affect the couple, as they are still in love with each other.
Before meeting his current mistress, Scott was married to Shelly Miles, a woman he was with from 2006 to 2014, when the marriage ended.
