Joie Chavis is a social media influencer, model, actress, and mogul. The 32-year-old boasts 2.2 million followers on Instagram and runs a successful lifestyle brand where she promotes healthy food options, workout attire, and more. Joie may be more famously known as the baby mother of rappers Bow Wow and Future. Let’s take a look at her life and why she does not need her famous exes to help her.
According to her website, Joie in Life, Chaves is a self-made woman on a mission to inspire others. Her bio says that “she has become an inspiration to many who seek to find their joy through health, fitness, and life.” Joie has always led an active lifestyle and got her start as a cheerleader before venturing off into the world of dance. She has been a background dancer for the likes of Janelle Monae, Tank, Future, and Eric Bellinger. It’s through her dance career that she met her baby fathers. Chavis documented her journey through postpartum and losing 50 pounds after her second child. She used that to empower other women on the same journey and has built her brand on connecting with others and giving them advice on how to lead better lives.
Bow Wow and Chavis were first linked in 2010. They dated briefly and welcomed daughter Shai Moss in 2011. Now 11, Shai is a budding actress and influencer in her own right. Her parents frequently post pictures of the young lady modeling and hanging out with her famous friends like Chris Brown’s daughter Royalty Brown.
Bow Wow and Joie reportedly began dating again in 2016 but broke up shortly after, and she moved on to another famous MC. Following her split from Bow Wow, Joie began dating Future. The pair welcomed a son named Hendrix Wilburn in 2018. Joie and Future would separate later, and the drama would ensure as he got caught on video saying he never loved her. “We had a good friendship, but I never said I loved her.” The audio was leaked by one of his other baby mothers, Brittni Mealy. Future has also frequently misspelled her name in posts. However, there is one tweet from 2020 where he shouts her out for being an incredible mom. “Joie, thank u for being an incredible mom…u holding it down! Real one,stay solid HAPPY MOTHERS DAY.”

Joie seemed to take all the drama in stride and got the best revenge by leveling up on Future with an even bigger hip-hop star. Last September, Joie was seen on vacation with Bad Boy Records label head Sean “Diddy” Combs. The pair appeared to be very cozy, kissing and cuddling on a boat in Capri, Italy. Fans will recall that Bow Wow once credited Diddy with teaching him how to be a “family man,” so the vacation had to be a bit awkward for the pals. Fans in the comments made some pretty rude remarks, calling Joie “recycled” and “used” while calling out Diddy for not dating women his own age. “That damn money! Gets’em every time!” said one person.
Joie Chavis Does Not Receive Child Support From Bow Wow or Future
Joie is well aware of the perception of her based on the men she’s dated and has been very candid about her finances and how she gets by. While speaking with fans on IG live last year, Joie let them know that she never pursued a man for his money. The businesswoman and mother of two claims she has always been a hustler. ” I’ve worked since I was fifteen, like, I take care of my kids. I don’t get any child support,” Chavis shared on ‘Setting The Record Staight, Assumptions With Joie Chavis.’
The last sentence struck a nerve with fans who assumed that Future and Bow Wow were helping her raise their kids. While Bow Wow seems very involved in Shai’s life and has expressed how great co-parenting with Joie is, Future seems to have a reputation for being an absentee dad, so this track with his history for many fans.
Joie Chavis recently announced that she would be taking some time to herself and practicing celibacy, so don’t expect any new kids from her anytime soon.
