6. Her Ex-Husband and Blac Chyna’s Father is a Felon

Shalana’s ex-husband, and the man with whom she would go on to have a child who grew up to be Blac Chyna, Eric Holland, is a notorious felon.

5. Ex-Husband, Marcellus Hunter, filed a Restraining Order Against Her 

As notorious as her ex-husband Eric Holland is for his criminal offenses, Tokyo Toni has not been exempt from crimes: she has her own criminal history.

Most famously, Shalana was hit with a restraining order by her on-again-off-again husband, Marcellus Hunter, in July 2013. The order was filed when Shalana allegedly threatened physical violence against Hunter. News broke of the restraining order in March 2016 when Hunter said in a statement with Radar Online,

“Shalana is violent when angry. She often tries to start a physical altercation. I have hundreds of texts [threatening] bodily harm, threats to come to my job, and get me fired. Threats to ‘crack my head open’ if I return to my home. Threats to leave me in a landfill. I want the threats to stop. I want her out of my home…She has already cut up my clothes!”

Shalana has had a rocky marriage with Marcellus, tying the knot for the first time in 2012 and divorcing in 2017.
