Regardless of what one publication mistakenly reported, Aisha Tyler is not the daughter of Barack and Michelle Obama.
The comedian/actress/former co-host of the Talk hit Twitter over the weekend after the Daily Mail mistook her for the Obamas’ 20-year-old daughter Sasha in a photo’s caption. The pictures were taken at Mother Wolf in Los Angeles, where Tyler was spotted greeting Jay-Z and Beyoncé as she walked by their table. The caption said she was “just seven years old when she and her sister Malia became the First Daughters.”
“Dear @DailyMailUK: I VERY much appreciate you mistaking me for the lovely 20-year-old Sasha Obama,” Tyler, 51, wrote on Sunday. “I’ll assume that was due to my buoyant, youthful appearance & not just messy journalism.”
Still, Aisha added it was “fantastic to see the legendary Beyoncé & Jay-Z at dinner,” writing that the pair were both “dazzling and gracious.”
Today it was reported by former Forbes writer Zack O’Malley Greenburg that Hov was the highest-paid hip-hop artist of 2021, rising above both Kanye West and Diddy with his impressive estimated $470 million in earnings. Jay’s financial victory was largely a result of his Tidal and Armand de Brignac champagne deals; he was No. 2 on O’Malley Greenburg’s list of the highest-paid overall musicians of 2021, falling only behind Bruce Springsteen and his $590M income.
