Shanetris "Shane" Campbell was born on September 7, 1982, the first child of an abusive mother and soon-to-be rap music multimillioaire and First Amendment crusader Luther Campbell of 2 Live Crew fame.

Despite a paternity test that proved conclusively that he was indeed her father, Luther Campbell regularly - to this day - denies that Shanetris is his. And on the rare occasions that he does concede the point. he refers to her as merely a 'sperm donation: Luther Campbell hit his musical stride in the late '80s when 2 Live Crew's legal troubles began. Much to the consternation of AI Gore's wife Tipper, Campbell's attainment of international superstardom as a rapper and crusader for freedom of speech delighted Shanetris mother; her eldest child's father had become her meal ticket. given his new-found wealth. When Shanetris mother was awarded a lump sum of several thousand dollars back pay plus $1,200 per month, the incomparable Luke had the money delivered to herin a Brink's truck. In pennies.

Throughout her childhood and teenage years Shanetris bounced back and forth from the housing projects of Miami's notorious Liberty City to the luxurious environs of Luther Campbell's mansions and yachts. Raped at 1 S by her stepfather and then forced to support herself by the time she was just 17-years-old, Shanetris found her way into Miami's sex industry as an exotic dancer.

Although she remains ambivalent about stripping, Shanetris is grateful that the vocation at least offered good pay and flexible hours, which allowed her to complete three years of college and be an involved single-parent to her son Victor.

Shanetris personal struggles - the result of her abysmal upbringing - include difficulties with her physical and mental health and the ongoing challenges that arise from her attraction to crude and violent men and women.

Yet through sheer grit and determination, Shanetris has used her personal tragedies as the impetus tofind her voice as an author and poet.

She has also blossomed into a successful businesswoman with an undying passion to help children and adults like her who have been victimized by negligent, abusive and absent parents. Her new Shanetris Precious Heart Foundation will provide a range of support services for children and families in crisis and will be funded, in part, by proceeds from the sales of her books including I Am Not My Father's Daughter.
