Maika Monroe is an American model and actress. She has appeared in a number of movies, both acting and portraying characters. She has been married to musician Michael Jackson and the couple have two children. Maika was also briefly married to singer Diana Ross, before they divorced in 1986.
Maika Monroe was born in Louisiana, the same state that produced such celebrities as Oprah Winfrey, Tina Turner, and Paris Hilton. Maika’s parents were both teachers and educators, and the two served together in the Peace Corps. While attending college in California, Maika became involved with the alternative community in Santa Barbara. During this time, she developed a love for the art of skateboarding. In addition to her love of skateboarding, Maika became interested in surfing equipment, especially in the domain of photography.
Maika Monroe began working as a freelance photographer when she received her first commission from a British company. The assignment provided her with a lucrative contract. She began traveling to Jamaica with the hopes of becoming a professional surfer, but was unable to enter the water because of her asthma. Instead, she enrolled in a course at the Santa Barbara College of Art, which taught her the craft of drawing and painting. This led to a career as a professional artist, which were documented in her first biographer, Donavan Murphy’s book, Maika Monroe: An American Dream.
Maika Monroe’s personal life has also been chronicled in biographies. Early in her career, she was linked to former President George Walker Bush due to her resemblance to the former leader. Her weight fluctuations, coupled with a questionable relationship with the press, contributed to the public’s perception that she was irresponsible. When she gained weight in the late eighties, it contributed to the public’s lack of confidence in her appearance, resulting in her being labeled as “the brunette president”.
Maika Monroe’s net worth is not based on her acting ability, but rather on her kiteboarding ability. It was around the late eighties that she began seriously learning how to kiteboard, which has helped to propel her into an entirely new realm of existence. It is important to note that Maika Monroe has been an avid kiteboarder since her youth. Her fondness for the sport has led to an appreciation of the sport in her acting career. She is best known for playing the role of a freedom-loving, bikini-clad bikini girl with an exotic sense of attitude in some of the most celebrated movies of the past two decades.
As we enter into the summer of 2021, Maika Monroe’s professional kiteboarding schedule will likely change somewhat. She will most likely still perform all of her promotional duties for Kiteboarder TV and be available for any other media requests. In the meantime, Maika Monroe fans everywhere will be anxiously awaiting her return to the big screen. Her consistent passion for the sport and her excellent appearance (which include an award from the Skin Cancer Foundation) have all combined to give her the edge necessary to secure her place in Hollywood as a skateboarding legend.
