Nicole's biological mother is from the Dominican republic, so her mother is a Afro-Hispanic mixture. Her father's mother was a Black Creole, and his father was of Mexican Descent. Shelia E. is her aunt, Im not sure why she denies it, she looks like their side of the family in a lot of ways. So, Nicole is Black Creole, Mexican and Afro-Domincan mixed. They say she has been spotted in the Dominican Republic visting her mom.
