On March 14, Rouse took to Instagram to express her herself regarding her age and past.

43 is everything,” the former actress begins.

‘Let me tell you about my life.’

According to Rouse, she has conquered cancer twice — ovarian cancer, actually.

According to Hip Hop DX, Sinnamon Love ended up losing an ovary and Fallopian tube during her battle with the cancerous ailment.

Also via Urban Daily, the source mentions Rouse as a committed mother with a teenage daughter and autistic teenage son.

“Her longevity is mind boggling but not surprising as Sinnamon had the will to beat cancer.”

But even then, she wasn’t finished with the duties of immediate parenthood. Her daughter had a child of her own.

Via Instagram, she states as follows.

I took 3 years off writing and lecturing to raise my 3 year old grandson with Cerebral Palsy & help my man build a brand that was supposed to be for us.”

Most recently, she was in a relationship with Jarobi White from A Tribe Called Quest.

However, somewhere along the line recently, that ended approximately 6 weeks ago. So, she’s still pushing. According to her biography, she’s always been super intelligent and a serious fighter.

Back in the Day

With the mind of a genius and small beginnings in Flint, Michigan, she “studied Ballet, Tap and Modern Jazz,” according to AVN Media Network.

Her parents were insanely talent and intelligent. So, she got hers honest.

“At merely 9 years old, I was taught the importance of good manners, poise, grace, style, applying makeup correctly, and posing for the eventual paparazzi. The classes came in quite handy when I received my very first modeling jobs, a print ad for a JC Penney’s catalog, and a subsequent position as a runway model in a local fashion show. I was always taking part in local talent shows and showcases. Having a mother that was a trained opera singer, influenced my desire to sing.”

She continues.

“Having attending private and magnet public schools my entire life, I was a bit of an outcast in my neighborhood. I was the smart girl. Although we were a middle class family, I was quite privileged. My parents rewarded my academic excellence with anything I wanted, violin lessons, piano lessons, space camp at NASA. While my peers were reading Nancy Drew and flying kites, I was reading Isaac Asimov and building rockets.”

So…Why Porn?

Well, according to Sinnamon, it was a personal choice. She wasn’t forced into it.

Although she was known as the smart girl, she mentions that she got involved with a guy when she moved to California and got a taste of West Coast life.

“After that [beginning her relationship], I was determined to learn as much as possible about sex, seduction and lust. I started scouring book stores for anything that would help me become a connoisseur of sensuality. I began taking massage classes, and studied both Tantra and ancient erotic dance. My writing, which had once won literary and oratorical competitions became highly charged with sexuality. An energy emanated from me that was undeniably sex.”

So, there came a point where she wanted more money.

“I decided that staying in school was more important than working 60 hours a week to survive, so I started looking for alternate way of making money. At 19, I was too young still to dance in most strip clubs, and had never even stepped foot inside one. I found my way to the classified ads section of the L.A. Weekly and came across an ad for figure models. The rest as they say is history!”

You never know why people make certain decisions. All in all, we’d love to know your thoughts regarding Rouse’s past battles. Feel free to share your comments via our Facebook page.
