Apparently, tweeps had been messaging her asking if she was either Pearl Thusi or related to the “Queen Sono“ star.
While the two women do have similar features, Jones said in her 14-second video: “Hi guys, so to answer all the messages that I’ve been getting… no I am not related to Pearl Thusi nor am I Pearl Thusi. My name is Danica Jones”, she said.
“You really do look like Pearl. It’s amazing how y’all really look alike and the voices too. You ain’t convincing sis… Somebody knows something”[email protected] said
