She doesn’t seem to have an account on Twitter or Instagram, while she’s recently launched her TikTok account, which is why she’s only followed by close to 100 people – she’s amassed nearly 1,000 likes of both her videos combined.

Love life and relationships

Grier hasn’t mentioned any boys or girls whom she’s perhaps been with, which is mostly why there are today various rumors circulating the internet, concerning both her current relationship status and sexual orientation.

Some of her fans believe that she’s today in a relationship with her high school sweetheart, as several people have claimed on the internet to have seen the two spending time together at cafes and restaurants, but no evidence has been provided to support these claims, nor has Grier addressed these rumors.

There are also those who believe that she’s lesbian, and this to be the reason behind her not sharing the details of her love life with her fans, but this hasn’t been confirmed either.

Teri and Francis still married, but divorced when Brooke was five months old; she has five half-siblings.

Brooke’s mother signed her up for ballet, piano and horse-riding lessons when she was still very young, and she was nine when she launched her acting career, playing Quentin’s Daughter in the drama movie “After the Fall”; she continued acting throughout her entire education. Brooke studied at Dwight-Englewood School, and upon matriculating in 1983, enrolled at Princeton University, from which she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in literature in 1987.

Brooke’s modelling career was launched when she was less than a year old, becoming the youngest person to appear on the cover page of the monthly fashion and lifestyle magazine “Vogue” in 1980, at just 14.
