Kids born in a family of superstars are more likely to live by the identity of their parents. Few among them work really hard and become successful to become popular by their own deeds. Justice Mellencamp is one of them; she is the daughter of actress, Victoria Granucci, and a music personality, John Mellencamp.
Mellencamp was already a popular name as she was born as a star kid but she was not among those who would settle for their parents’ identity. The Indiana-born hurdled, hustled, and worked hard to make a name of her own, and currently works as a hairstylist for hair salon, Platinum Designer.
Who Are Justice Mellencamp Parents? Early Life & Education
One of the five children of John Mellencamp and Victoria Granucci, Justice was born on August 14, 1985. As of 2021, the Indiana native is 36 years old. She grew up in Lowcountry, Hilton Head Island before her move to Hilton Head.
After her parents divorced in 1999, her single mother raised her along with her sister Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave.
The hairstylist went on to attend Sea Pines Montessori for her primary education. Later, she completed her high school education at Hilton Head Preparatory School. Further, Mellencamp attended Indiana University but couldn’t continue after one year. The reason behind this was distance and chilly weather as stated by Mellencamp.
Half-Siblings From Parents Remarriage
Justice’s American rock idol John Mellencamp has been married to three women to date. His first marriage was when he was just a fresh high school graduate. Back then, he married his then-pregnant girlfriend, Priscilla Esterline. It was in 1970 when John was just 19 years old. The couple separated in 1981. They have a son Michelle Mellencamp.
John had his second marriage with Justice’s mom, Victoria Granucci in 1981. The couple has two beautiful daughters from this marriage including Justice herself. Another one is Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. Sadly, this marriage also ended in 1989.
The then-twice divorced man again married American model, Elaine Irwin in 1992. After living 19 years of married life, the couple split up in 2011. They have two sons, Hudd Mellencamp and Speck Mellencamp.
In this way, Justice is rich with four siblings. She seems to have a beautiful bong with all of them. Besides, all five of Mellencamp kids are well-established in their own field. Also, she has a traditional sibling Teddi, a famous TV personality.
Justice Mellencamp Is A Hairstylist
The famous stylist, even after being a star kid had to go through a lot to make her career an established one. Like every normal struggling people, she also did a lot of hard work and struggles from the very grassroots level.
The star hairdresser started as a receptionist and part-time make-up artist in her childhood friend, Dawn’s salon, Fifth Avenue Hair Salon. Things were really tight for her during those days since she had just given birth to her first baby. Moreover, being the single breadwinner for her family was yet another challenge for her. However, the situation couldn’t stop her from fighting for her family. She worked there for around two years.
Justice opines that she didn’t get time to decide what she wants to do and where she wants to go in her life. It could have been because she had to take the responsibility of being a mother and earner at the young age of 22. However, she has no regrets about it. She states,
“Yes, I missed out on one chapter,the one that all my friends graduating from college right now are talking about. But instead I got to have my son. I can’t really have regrets when every day I look at someone who brings me so much joy. Five years later, it would have been completely different. It wouldn’t have been Trent(her son).”
As of now, she has been working in Platinum Design located at Hilton Head Island. She has been contributing her amazing skills to the salon since 2012.
