According to sources, Woah is not very close to her sister Stephanie, perhaps due to their huge age gap of more than 10 years).

Woah has been the subject of controversy on several occasions, which has ironically increased her popularity.

In a video posted on Instagram by social media sensation and rapper Lil Tay, bodyguards are seen trying to separate Woah and Danielle who come very close to exchanging blows in public.
According to sources, the source of their conflict began in 2018, when Danielle disclosed through a tweet that she was looking forward to confronting Vicky as she – together with Lil Tay – had made provocative racial comments about Danielle’s friend online. Bhad also accused her of allegedly attacking her due her cosmetic surgery, the number of men she had sexual relationships with, and her drug use. They were seen fighting again in a studio in a video that went viral in 2019 – as of now, their feud hasn’t died down, and they often criticize each other in the public.
A few weeks before celebrating her 18th birthday, Woah was arrested at a mall in Greensboro, North Carolina, after she defied orders to exit the premises by the police when they had shown up in the mall in response to a call about an active gunman.
According to The Blast, which covers news regarding celebrity entertainment, she resisted arrest and kicked one of the officers who was trying to restrain her – she was charged with assaulting a police officer, trespassing, obstructing or delaying an officer, and resisting. The calls about the gunman were later found to be unfounded, and no weapon was discharged during the incident.
