Angelo Banks Was Born When His Parents Were in High School
Angelo Banks was born when his parents were very young. His mother and father were high school sweethearts. Nicole and Durk started dating in 2008, and after three years of their relationship, they welcomed their first child, Angelo. The two married afterward.
After a couple of years, Angelo’s mom got pregnant with Bella, and when she was expecting her second child, she parted ways with Durk. The reason for the split was cited as her husband cheating on her with another woman. The pair officially got a divorce after the birth of Bella.
Angelo Banks’s Father Was Arrested a Few Times
Most rappers have come under the law at least once in their life. It’s not much different for Lil Durk either. He was arrested for firearms possession in 2013. He was found with a loaded.40 caliber firearm in Chicago. Police said that the rapper threw the weapon in a car to get rid of it. But, his lawyer argued that his friend Clarence January was the owner of the gun and he threw it there.
More interestingly, his now former wife Nicole was pregnant at the time and she attended his court hearing at that time. She stood in the court alongside his family to plead his innocence. Reports state that Nicole requested the judge to free him as she didn’t want to go into labor with her husband behind the bars.
His Father Was a Street Gang Member
Angelo’s grandfather Dontay Banks Sr was in jail when Durk was very young. So, he had a very tough childhood which led him to join a street gang group, The Black Disciples. Since then, he has been in many legal troubles.
Durk’s recent arrest was on attempted murder charges. He and the late King Von were arrested in 2019 for allegedly shooting outside of an Atlanta restaurant, The Varsity. A Fulton County judge charged Durk with a criminal attempt to commit murder, as well as aggravated assault, and participation in criminal street gang activity. However, the court dropped the charges in late 2022.
