Rick James is often remembered as the “King of Funk”. Songs such as “Super Freak“, “You and I” and “Mary Jane” were all huge hits that are still played today.
The musician, who hailed from New York, passed away in 2004 from a heart attack. Now, his daughter, along with film director Sacha Jenkins are providing the world with a look at his life in a new 2021 documentary – B**chin’: The Sound and Fury of Rick James.
Let’s find out more about Rick James’ daughter, Ty. Her age, IG and more explored…
Rick James wasn’t married to Ty and her brother, Rick Jr’s mother, Syville Morgan. In total, he had four children, Ty, Rick Jr, Tazman and Trey. Rick was married twice, once to Kelly Misener from 1974-1979 and again to Tanya Hijazi from 1997-2002.
Ty James’ age
Although Ty James’ age doesn’t appear to be readily available information, it’s likely that she was born in the late 1960’s or early 1970’s before her father married his first wife, Kelly Misener.
Given that Rick had a daughter and a son with Syville Morgan, it’s likely that Ty would’ve been born around 1970.
This would have made Rick around 22 years old when he became a father and today, Ty may be around 50 years old.
Is Ty on Instagram?
Yes, Ty is on Instagram @thisistyjames with 38.8k followers at the time of writing.
Her more recent posts show her promoting the new Showtime documentary that she co-created, B**chin’: The Sound and Fury of Rick James.
Speaking of her experience in co-creating the documentary, Ty said to Yahoo: “I mean, every day has been emotional since his passing, because you hear his music all over the world, anywhere you go. I just visited Jamaica a few days ago and we go to dinner and here comes “Mary Jane” playing in the background. So I deal with those emotions on a regular basis.“
Ty writes in her IG bio that she’s the president of the Rick James estate and Rick James’ daughter.
