During an interaction with TOGETHXR for the brand’s “More Than a Name” series, Corinne spilled the beans on her personal life and stated that at one point she wanted to get rid of her father Jamie’s surname, Foxx.
At the time, Corinne said, “I had a lot of people telling me, ‘You don’t have to go to college. You can just go straight into the entertainment world, doors will open for you. You could be making millions of dollars.'”
The model continued, “I just grew up my whole life and I didn’t want to just ride on my dad’s coattails. I wanted to, you know, make my own name, do things myself. I did consider, honestly, changing my last name.”
The 47 Meters Down Uncaged star concluded by saying, “But as I’ve gotten older I’ve, one, made peace with people are gonna think things about me that I have no control of, and two, I’m proud of my dad and I’m proud of who he is and I’m proud of the work he’s done. I’m proud of just the person that he is. Holding onto his name and being proud of my last name is actually something I’ve had to grow into.”
