Pearl Thusi is tired of people talking about her complexion and whether or not she is mixed race because of her hair and how light she is.

The starlet recently set the record straight in a Touch HD interview, she said, “my father is dark and my mom was slightly light. I have a recessive gene from five generations back from my dads side, my ancestors were mixed raise five generations ago and this is why my skin is light.”

She then went on to say that her mom was worried about what people would think of her when she was born, “my mom was really stressed thinking that people would question my paternity.” she said.
