Is Ava Maybee Cardoso Smith Trans?
Ava Maybee Cardoso Smith is not transgender, even though the general assumption is that she might just be. This rumor was birthed and given life as a result of her performances on the American Idol season 20. These performances were lauded by the audience and she even received a standing ovation from the judges during the Hollywood week.
However, what led to questions about Ava’s gender identity were her mannerisms and fashion choices. To top it off, Ava Maybee has a deep male-like voice. Since the rumor mill became alive with the speculations surrounding her gender identity, Ava Maybee has not once bothered to debunk the rumors in any way, which is likely to draw out the speculations.
However, an in-depth analysis of the singer’s social media pages, such as her Instagram, reveals several girly pictures and other indications that suggest she is a girl. Ava cannot be any clearer than that about her gender identity despite that she hasn’t officially addressed the public on her position on the matter. After all, the analogy that any publicity is good for showbiz applies in this case.
Ava Maybee Was Born At The Turn Of The Millennium
Ava Maybee was born on February 19, 2001, in Los Angeles, California, United States of America. The official name on her birth certificate is Ava Maybee Cardoso Smith, incorporating the last names of her birth parents, Chad Smith and Trisha Cardoso, who were never officially married. Ava was born under the sun sign of Pisces and belongs to the Caucasian ethnic group.
Obviously, the singer/songwriter also holds American citizenship as well. Her father, Chad Smith, is well known as the lead drummer of a band known as Red Hot Chili Peppers while her mother, Trisha Cardoso, was an executive at a record label.
Ava grew up in Los Angeles, California, and has five siblings, four of whom are from her father’s relationship with other women. Her older half-sister, Manon Smith, is also a musician, and she also shares the same father with an older half-brother named Justin Smith.
Ava has three half-brothers from her father’s second marriage, namely Cole Smith, Beckett Smith, and Dashiell Smith, all of whom are definitely younger than she is. Until her appearance in the 20th season of the American idols, there hadn’t really been any controversy around Ava Maybee’s gender identity.
There is no information about whether she had faced any severe discrimination due to the fundamental difference in her voice. There are many reasons there is no information on that subject. The first and primary reason is down to the fact that Ava Maybee has not said much about her early formal education.
Another reason could be that her voice wasn’t yet fully formed into what it is now during those early years. Ava Maybee will graduate from New York University in 2023. Since her admission into the University in 2019 to study music, there has also been no report of possible discrimination against her quite unconventional voice or against her decision to sometimes dress like a man.
Who Is Chad Smith’s Daughter Dating Now?
Chad Smith’s daughter, Ava Maybee, is happily single at the moment. There is no indication that she is seeing anyone in a romantic sense, and one might even speculate that the rumors and uncertainty surrounding her gender identity might have contributed to her relationship status as of this writing. That speculation would be unverified, of course.
The singer/songwriter shows off her best friend, a young man known as Levi Port. She is also good friends with guitarist, Austin Hayman, with whom she performed on the American Idol stage. Her relationship status has the potential of changing anytime soon, especially since she has become quite popular for one.
For another thing, she is the daughter of a man whose dating history reads like a journal. Ava’s father, Chad Smith, has been in three known relationships with three different women and each relationship has produced at least one child.
Ava Maybee’s Father’s First Marriage Was In The Mid 1990s
The singer’s relationship history is relatively thin compared to that of her father who has most likely been in dozens of relationships, including two marriages. His first marriage was to a woman known as Maria St. John.
Details of their relationship are limited to the fact that they were married for about a year from 1996 to 1997. Despite the relatively short length of the marriage, Ava’s father had a daughter with his first wife, born in 1997 and is named Manon Smith.
He Tied The Knot Again In 2004
Chad Smith decided to retake the marriage plunge before the mid-2000s. This time to an architect named Nancy Mack. Nancy must have had the midas’ touch of marriage because Ava’s father has been with her ever since. They live in Malibu, California, and have three sons together.
The first, named Cole Smith, was born in 2005. They waited for four years to have their second son, Beckett Smith. He arrived in 2009, while the youngest son of Chad and Nancy, Dashiell Smith, was born in 2012.
Ava’s Father Dated Other Women Before Marrying His Second Wife
It’s no secret that Chad Smith got involved with other women after his first marriage ended in 1997. One of such relationships produced a son named Justin Smith. Justin was born in 1998, and shortly after, Chad began dating Ava’s mother, a record exec named Trisha Cardoso. That relationship is what produced Ava Maybee in 2001.
