Nikko Smith’s Sex Tape With Mimi Faust: 5 Things To Know About The ‘LHHATL’ Star
1. Nikko is dating Mimi in real life.
If you’re wondering why the passion between Nikko and Mimi seems so … authentic in their sex tape, it’s because they are actually in an off-screen romantic relationship!
2. Nikko is a musician.
Nikko is so much more than just a sex tape star. He describes himself on Twitter as a “Producer, Artist, Actor & Entreprenur, CEO: Unstoppable MG.” As an “international/pop” musician, he has worked with producers such as Timbaland and Sean Garret, according to the bio on Nikko’s official website.
3. Nikko & Mimi approved the release of their sex tape.
While some people feign shock when their sex tape “leaks” to the public, that’s not the case with Nikko and Mimi. The couple signed the tape over to Vivid Entertainment founder Steve Hirsch, who was totally thrilled to release it. “From the minute we heard about this tape, we wanted it,” Steve said in a statement. “The authenticity of Mimi and Nikko’s relationship is obvious. There’s no mistaking their passion; it’s real.”
4. Nikko isn’t using Mimi for fame and fortune.
Mimi insisted in an interview with MStarz in the summer of 2013 that her boyfriend wasn’t using her for fame, despite what everyone seemed to think.
“I don’t think Nikko was using me,” she told the site. “If you ask me everyone’s an opportunist. Everyone in this world is an opportunist and if you’re not, then something may be wrong. I don’t think he was using me. He was trying to get what he was trying do at the forefront, and I don’t blame him. I would of done the same thing if I was him.”
5. Nikko is a mama’s boy — aww!
Nikko posted a sweet pic of himself with his arm around his mom on his Instagram, alongside the caption, “Me & The First Lady My Mom #loveyourmom.” We have no idea what Nikko’s mom thinks of his sex tape with Mimi, but at least the mother and son duo seem to have a strong relationship.
Well, now you know Nikko! You no longer have to feel bad about seeing him naked (and doing a lot of other things) with Mimi Faust.
