Who is Tamika Hendrix?
Tamika Laurice James Hendrix was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota USA, on 11 February 1967 – her zodiac sign is Aquarius and she holds American nationality. She is perhaps best known for being the daughter of famous American rock guitarist and a singer Jimi Hendrix.
Early life and education
Tamika was raised in Minneapolis alongside her younger half-brother James Daniel Sundquist by their mother Diane Carpenter, as her father wasn’t even aware that she was born until she was six months old. She didn’t get to spend much time with Jimi as he was busy with his career as a musician and the two were then raised solely by their mother, as Jimi died when Tamika turned three.

Jimi Hendrix has two children. Daughter Tamika Laurice Hendrix, born in the U.S, and James Daniel Sundqvist, the latter who is half-Swedish. 👶🏽 👶🏽 apparently he never met either of them, so I am unsure who the child in the first photo is. The third photo is with one of his groupies/girlfriends, her name is Devon. #jimihendrix #jimihendrixexperience #tamikahendrix #jamesdanielsundqvist #guitarlegend #biracialbabies
Tamika had a rather normal childhood, spending time with her peers and playing with dolls; she was a bit bullied while attending a local high school because of her father. Tamika matriculated in 1985, and then chose to find a job rather than to pursue a college degree.
Tamika has been keeping her career away from the media’s attention for all these years, and it isn’t known what she has been doing since matriculation.
Love life and relationships
Tamika hasn’t talked about her love life, but is today married to a man whom she met while they were both attending the same high school.
The two were friends for over two years before they started to date, while they married at the age of 22 in a private ceremony, attended by their closest friends and family. Not long after the wedding, Tamika gave birth to their daughter, and their son followed several years later. They have been living together in Minneapolis for several years now, but have moved several times due to problems with money – there are no controversies nor rumors surrounding the marriage.

Who is Jimi Hendrix?
Jonny Allen Hendrix was born in Seattle, Washington State USA, on 27 November 1942 – his zodiac sign was Sagittarius and he held American nationality. He was raised in Seattle alongside his four siblings, by their father Al after he fought in World War II in the US Army, and their mother Lucille Jeter, who was a housewife. After Al came home from the war, he began abusing alcohol and Lucille, and they became very violent to one another – they divorced when Jimi was nine and Al received custody over him and his brother Leon.
Jimi was attending Horace Mann Elementary School when he found a ukulele in the garbage with only one string, but he fixed it up and learnt how to play it. He attended Washington Junior High School but quit before matriculation. Jimi was 15 when he bought his first guitar for $5, and played for nearly four hours each day, while listening to famous musicians such as B.B. King and Robert Johnson. After mastering his guitar, he founded the band the Velvetones and bought himself an electric guitar. At the age of 19, Jimi was caught driving a stolen vehicle and was given two options: go to jail or join the Army.
He enlisted and eventually founded the band The Casuals, and played around Army bases.
He was discharged in 1963 and formed a new band – The King Kasuals – with which he played until January 1964 when he decided to go solo. His first single, “Testify” came out in March 1965 peaking at #35 on the Billboard Chart, and he also started playing with Little Richard’s band but was fired after a few months. Jimi continued to make music on his own and became the world’s highest-paid rock musician by 1969.
Jimi was addicted to alcohol and drugs during his career, and often used LSD which eventually led to his death – it was announced after his post-mortem examination in 1970 that he had died of asphyxia after he took the drug barbiturate and after he aspirated his own vomit. It was later also revealed that he had taken nine sleeping pills, although prescribed to take only half of one.
Jimi met Tamika’s mother in 1966, and they started living together after only a month – Diane was only 16 years old when she became pregnant, and after realizing it she moved back to Minneapolis as she was unable to continue travelling with Jimi. Jimi dated and slept with many other girls and women, some of whom have claimed that they gave birth to his children but no paternal tests have ever been done to prove this.
