She reportedly attended and graduated from Siegel High School. She later enrolled at the University of Virginia, where she met her then-future husband Tikki while attending a computer science class.

On the other hand, her famous former husband Atiim Kiambu ‘Tiki’ Barber was born on Apr 7, 1975 in Roanoke, Virginia. He is also 47 years old. Tiki attended the University of Virginia and studied commerce.

What is Ginny Cha’s profession?

The 47-year-old mother of four is a former publicist for Zegna. It is an Italian luxury fashion house for designer clothes for men. Although she took a break from her job at Zegna, she returned after their first son, Atiim Kiambu Jr., was in kindergarten.

However, two decades later and after a messy divorce, Ginny lives a private life and her current profession is unknown. She may or may not work as a publicist for Zegna from 2022.

Ginny Cha’s ex-husband and her parents had a special bond

Unlike other parents who let their kids go out and explore life on their own, Ginny’s parents were quite the opposite. They were very supportive of Ginny and Tiki and even lived with them to care for their two sons AJ and Chason.

during a interview, Ginny and Barber talked about their band and how they live happily in a suite on the Upper East Side in New York City. He said,

“Besides the fact that we are extremely multi-ethnic, Korean, Vietnamese, black, which I think contributes to the appearance of our children, our family dynamics are very different than people expect. It’s different and it works for us.”

He further added,

“It works because everyone involved shares a love for the family and, to some extent, a quirky sense of adventure. It works because everyone involved is open-minded and compliments each other in a way that reflects true affection and respect.”

At the time, Ginny’s husband Barber and her father also had similar tastes in food. Both hated turkey because they thought it was too dry. Likewise, her ex-husband also had a great relationship with his mother-in-law and revealed that he liked it when his mother-in-law cooked breakfast for him every morning.

Hairdresser cheated on Ginny while pregnant with their twins

What could have happened to you worse during your pregnancy? Well, being cheated on by your long-term husband. While it sounds terrible to us, just imagine what Ginny Cha went through when she found out her loving husband of over ten years was cheating on her with his assistant.

According to a well near Cha,

“She had no idea what was going on. She had no idea about this relationship with Traci Johnson until he left in late November, Ginny is devastated. This all came out of the blue for Ginny. People can say, ‘How could she not know that?’ But she really didn’t. Tiki is a man who travels a lot.”

They went on to reveal that Barber and Johnson started dating in early 2008 when Traci was a student at Mount St. Mary College and only 21 years old. Tiki even showered her with lavish gifts, luxurious clothes and flowers.

Not to mention, Cha had filed for divorce and sought a settlement before the delivery. A source close to him said:

“He was definitely under the impression that they were delaying the divorce filings until after the kids were born,”

They also added,

“He wants joint custody, he has always been a committed father and wants to remain a committed father to all his children. Frankly, Ginny’s side wants to limit his input.”

Ginny and Barber’s divorce was finalized on July 12, 2012.
