Iskra Lawrence Dating, Boyfriend, Family, Height, Birthday
Since exploding into the modeling scene, British model Iskra Lawrence became a symbol for body diversity. A bodacious woman by definition, the Worcestershire-native takes an immense pride on never having to surrender herself to the status quo that is so rampant in the industry.
All her achievements so far have been her own making; everything she does, she does it on her terms. That's the reason why Iskra asserted dejectedness after keen media outlets aired out her secretive romance with her boyfriend.
Not only did the incident invade her privacy, but also permanently exposed her to merciless taunting from racist folks online.

A songwriter by trade, Iskra's husband prospect Philip Payne also works as an A&R for the management company Score More. His famous list of clientele includes the likes of Tory Lanez, Noah North, Who Killed Kenny, and Mansa of The Hill.
For the better part of 2018, Iskra was able to keep her romance with her boyfriend Philip an intimate affair. Later that year, the public got wind of the pair's relationship after a series of snaps - from a photoshoot in Miami Beach - of the two appearing cozy made the news.
Dejected and distraught with the sudden development, the Brit, age 28, didn't make herself available for any comments at the time. Instead, she chose to confirm the dating rumors on Philip's birthday. Posting a snap of the two on Instagram on 21st January 2019, Iskra penned an emotional ode to her man.

In addition to accusing paparazzi of robbing them of the opportunity to announce their relationship in their term, she also marveled in excitement what the future might entail for the two. According to her, the fear of being judged because of the inter-racial nature of their romance coerced her into hiding her Philip from the world.
Little did she know that her anxiety would come to life in the days following her announcement. In her 29th January 2019 Instagram post, she addressed her detractors by penning a poem, where she called them to be a little more empathetic with their approach. An excerpt of the poem read:-
"In a world where life is tough enough
Why don’t we make someone’s day a little less rough
Being mindful of what others may be going through, but don’t share
We are all sisters and brothers so let’s show some care
A simple act of kindness can go along way... "

The 28-year-old model ended her poignant poem with the words:-
"Because love is loving no matter what controversy we may face
Our love will light up any dark place
Spread kindness and acceptance and put a smile on a face
Because we are all made the same and part of the human race"
Sadly, Iskra is all too familiar with people depreciating her.
