Although , she realised and observed her parents creative side but still , her curiosity made her ask her mother about why , why she was named ” True ” and she discovered that , they wanted to name her ” Truth ” before naming her ” True ” and it was inspired by ” Can’t Take My Eyes Off You ” by Frankie Valli’s Lauryn Hill’s version .

Although , she is the daughter of an actor , Forest Whitaker but she likes to be a little away from the limelight and media . There is no such “ True “ dedicated information available on Google , all because she prefers to keep her personal life hidden from the limelight and all the media gossips .
