Mercedes Javid Early Life & Bio
Mercedes Christine Javid was born on August 16, 1972. Her birthplace is Tehran, Iran, but she grew up in the states. MJ is 47 years old as of 2020. She was born to Iranian immigrants, Sham (father) and Vida (mother). She belongs to Perian-American ethnicity and holds an American nationality.
Talking about her education, she graduated from Beverly High School in 1990. Soon after, she studied in California State University to graduate in English Literature. After a while in 2002, she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts. Her early years were quite complicated.
Mercedes had to consume some diet pills at the age of 14. It was all because of her concerning weight gain, so she had to lose extra pounds from the very beginning. Also, she had a rough childhood with her parents, especially her mother.
Mercedes Javid Relationship with Mother
It was a nightmare for MJ, who had to see her parents being divorced. One can only imagine the pain and suffering of this tragic disaster. However, Sham and Vida lived in the same vicinity after their divorce only for the sake of their little daughter.
We can often see MJ’s mom on the canvas of Shahs of Sunset, and you might have probably realized that the two have many internal conflicts. They usually have explosive arguments on the show.
It’s a fact that Vida wants her daughter to follow the Persian way of life, but Mercedes, on the other hand, has no intention of doing so. Also, Vida had a face-off with MJ’s longtime boyfriend and now husband, Tommy Feight. She didn’t approve of their relationship, which is why Tommy unleashed his fury on Vida.
At a point, we were afraid that the two would never walk down the aisle, but things turned out to be good. Despite all the conflicts with her mother, MJ had a close bond with her father.
However, Sham passed away back in May of 2018. Things have taken a drastic turn since then, as MJ and Vida have come to an understanding after the Sham’s shocking demise.
