10 Things You Didn’t Know About WWE’s Chyna

3) Rehab at 16

As we discussed earlier in this article, Chyna had a difficult childhood growing up. Laurer was involved in an abusive family (her father stabbed her mother when she was young). Her parents divorced when she was only 4, and her biological father was an alcoholic.

Thankfully, the two were able to put things aside before his passing. Laurer would go on to have three different step-fathers, as she was also consistently moving with her mother. At the age of 16, the troubled teen had a drug addiction, and her mother tried to convince her to check into a drug rehabilitation center. This caused Chyna to instead move away to her father’s. Laurer spent her final year of high school in Spain.
