Jojo Zarur has definitely gained name recognition during her time on Love & Hip Hop: Miami but the Mexican-Lebanese beauty has a lot more going for her than just reality TV. Jojo is an educated woman and is actually a celebrated celebrity stylist with an A-list clientele.
Jojo, whose real name is Joanna, made a huge splash on the first season of the newest Love & Hip Hop spinoff as she told the story of her parents, who were in the midst of a divorce when she made her TV debut.
Who is Jojo Zarur’s father?
Many viewers wanted to know what exactly Jojo’s rich father did for a living. There was even a rumor going around that Jose Antonio Zarur Menez was a cartel boss or that he was at least involved in one.
It turns out that he’s actually the executive director of Mexican car insurance company Quálitas Compañía de Seguros, S.A. de C.V. and has a $10 million a year salary. Due to his high profile job and impressive business acumen, Jojo’s father is said to be worth around $45 million but that was last year so his net worth may have increased.
Jojo takes after her father
While Jojo Zarur comes from a very wealthy family, she isn’t relying on a trust fund or using her clout to gain clients. She went the traditional route, earning a degree from the University of Alabama and she also attended Stanford.
After college, Jojo began a career in fashion, making a name for herself as a celebrity stylist. She’s known for styling rappers including Young Thug, Rich Gang, T-Pain, Rich Homie Quan and more.
In 2016, Jojo opened the Zarur Boutique online and now there’s even a storefront in Miami where customers can purchase pieces like the ones she uses on her A-list clients.
Mona Scott Young’s afterthought?
JoJo is one of the main cast members on both seasons of Love & Hip Hop: Miami but that wasn’t what executive producer Mona Scott Young had originally planned. She actually cast Jojo to the Miami cast two months into filming the first season and good thing she did!
Zarur has been caught in the middle of the drama with Amara La Negra and Veronica Vega and that is spilling over into Season 2. In the off-season, there was some shade thrown at Amara, who is close to Jojo, as the two argue over their friendships with the likes of Bobby Lytes, Prince and Young Hollywood.
Love & Hip Hop: Miami airs on Wednesdays at 8/7c on VH1.
