Early Life & Family

Karnation So Cool was born on November 3, 2011, in the United States of America, to Royalty Johnson and a man named Jamie. Her biological father and Royalty were together for 10 to 12 years, during which Royalty also gave birth to Karnation’s two older siblings, J’aaliyah (born June 11, 2007) and Leonidas (March 19, 2009). Karnation also has three step-siblings, Camari, Cordayah, and Cordero Jr.

In later years, Royalty disclosed that she was abused by Jamie during their relationship. He put her through constant emotional and physical torture. She was the only earner at their home, supporting not only their family of five but also Jamie’s mother and sister. Eventually, she broke up with him and took her kids, as she wanted them to have a better future.


Karnation’s mother met CJ So Cool in either 2012 or 2013, and they began dating not long after. Royalty and her children were residing with her mother at the time, and CJ, who just had come back from his service in the US Navy, had not garnered his social media popularity yet.

In early 2017, the family told their followers that Royalty had become pregnant with CJ’s child, but in March that year, they revealed that they had lost the child.

In August 2017, CJ relocated the family to a massive mansion on a four-acre land. This led to much speculations on whether he had actually purchased the property. It was later discovered that he was renting it.
