At every turn, Brittani has shown that she can turn her challenges into triumphs on a personal or professional level.

Brittani Louise Taylor – Bio
Taylor was born in Minnesota, August 24, 1983. She chose to keep most details of her personal life away from the prying eyes of the media. It is known, however, that Brittani has a sibling, a brother named Blake, who she grew up with in Arizona.
Her father’s name is Robert Taylor and her mother’s name is Barbara Taylor. Her mother memorably appeared on one of her most popular videos which she titled ‘MOM TAG’.
For her high school education, Brittani enrolled and graduated from Sedona Red Rock High School. It was here that she began to develop the zeal to be an actress. She became active in her high school’s drama and theater department and also appeared in a few stage productions.
Her passion for acting only grew every year, but when she finally graduated, she won an art scholarship to Arizona State University to study marketing and business.
Just after graduating, Brittani Louise Taylor dropped out and moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of becoming an actress. However, things did not go as she hoped. She had tried many auditions and only got part roles in a few independent movies and TV shows. The budding actress then decided it was time to consider an appeal.
She made a foray into YouTube vlogging in 2009, using the pseudonym Rhonda Anthony Tanner. She didn’t make much headway until she filmed a video with veteran Youtuber, Shane Dawson, which depicts an email breakup. The video quickly went viral and its popularity followed suit. It was only after this success that she started posting videos under her real name.
Facts About the YouTube Star Turned Author
1. Brittani Louise Taylor is a mother
The Youtuber achieved mom status sometime in 2016 with the birth of her child, son Misha. She had Misha with her boyfriend at the time, a Serb named Milos Mihajlovic.
They were dating and got engaged shortly before she found out she was pregnant for him. Brittani was rumored to be in two other relationships between 2010 and 2014. The two names believed to be her ex-boyfriends during that time were Joey Anderton and Steven Winter. Besides these previous relationships, the YouTuber claims she was a virgin until Milos.
2. Her relationship with Milos was the worst period of her life
Brittani says she wasn’t taken to Milos at first but eventually decided to date him. He introduced himself as a doctor from war-torn Serbia whose parents held top positions in his home country’s military.
She kept her relationship with him away from her followers for a while, but eventually revealed it on Snapchat. Milos, throughout his time with her, has also appeared in some of her videos.
Brittani Louise Taylor recalls it as the worst period of her life. That’s because she soon began to uncover horrific truths about her partner. On the one hand, he was not a doctor and his parents did not work in the Serbian army.
He also faked cancer and made Brittani pay for his treatment. Milos also attempted to use Taylor’s connections to commit real estate fraud. The last straw, however, was when Brittani began to suspect Mihajlovic was trying to secure a Serbian passport for their son, possibly to take him to Serbia. She then informed her lawyer and the relevant authorities so that they could keep an eye on Milos.
3. One of Milos’ former victims helped Brittani build a case against him
Among Brittanison fiancé’s litany of tragic discoveries was the fact that he had a wife in Serbia. However, at the time of this discovery, the older Serbian woman was in the process of divorcing Milos.
Brittani Louise Taylor eventually got in touch with a woman named Bunny who helped build her case against him. Bunny has been the victim of fraudulent schemes by Milos in the past. He had also dated her and cheated her out of a serious amount of money.
All the while, Brittani was keeping up with appearances with her YouTube subscribers. It wasn’t until much later that she revealed how badly her relationship with the Serb had deteriorated.
Taylor ultimately won the battle against Milose and full custody of their son. She also legally dropped the name Misha for her son and changed it to Rex. It’s because Milos is the one who chose Misha as his name. She also took out a restraining order against him so that he had no visitation rights.
4. Brittani wrote a book about her experiences with Milos
There were plenty of loopholes her fans noticed as she went through her ordeal. For example, she was going to take unexpected breaks on YouTube.
When she finally put everything behind her and found sanity in her life, Brittani Louise Taylor decided to write a revealing book about the darkest period of her life. She titled it A Sucky Love Story: Overcoming Unfortunately Forever. The book was released on December 4, 2018.
She believes her story of survival can help others through relationship hell to know there is life after struggle.
